While most brides wait until well after the ceremony to pose for a trash the dress portrait, country music singer Holly Williams didn’t mind the mud marks and rips on her Vera Wang wedding wear at the conclusion of her “I do” day. The stains and shredded fabric symbolize the bride’s joyful exuberance on September 27, 2009, when she was pronounced the wife of drummer Chris Coleman.
Nature served as the couple’s cathedral as guests rose in honor of the bride from rows of church pews set out on the grounds of the Cedarwood estate in Nashville as the lady of the hour strolled down the aisle with her father– country music great Hank Williams, Jr.– who escorted his daughter to her groom.
According to People magazine, Kid Rock, Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts and Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill (who took on the role of a groomsman) were among the friends and family members to witness the pair–who had become betrothed while on a picnic in Leipers Fork, Tennessee in July 200– exchange vows. Following the nuptials, the newlyweds– the groom on drums and the bride at the mic– entertained their guests with a rousing rendition of a song that summed up the happy occasion, Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered.”
