Country singer Chely Wright wed her girlfriend at a ceremony in Connecticut on Saturday.
The Single White Female hitmaker met partner Lauren Blitzer last year, just two weeks after she ‘came out’ as a lesbian.

The pair exchanged vows at Blitzer’s aunt’s house in front of their close family and friends, while both wearing white wedding gowns.

Wright, who is Christian, and Blitzer, who is Jewish, opted for an inter-faith ceremony, with both a rabbi and reverend presiding over the nuptials.

But the couple decided to hire a DJ to provide entertainment for their guests, rather than a band.

Wright tells People.com, “Bands at weddings make me nervous.”
