Remember Paramore’s single “The Only Exception” where Hayley Williams was planning to breakup with her rockstar boyfriend? In the music video, she attends an all-white wedding wearing black and runs out after realising that she wants him back in her life.
Well, keeping in mind of the band’s musical and visual offerings, Williams, 27, actually wed her “only exception” who is indeed a rocker: New Found Glory’s 34-year-old guitarist, Chad Gilbert.
The happy couple, who have been together for 8 years, said their “I Dos” in front of friends and family on Saturday, 20th February 2016. Keeping things simple, Williams and Gilbert tied the knot in a very down-to-earth ceremony at the Franklin Theatre in Nashville.
In a few sweet images shared by fans and several eyewitnesses on social media, flame-haired Williams wore a short-sleeve white chiffon bridal gown while her new hubby rocked a black suit with a black shirt and tie. She later changed into a white tee with the name Chad displayed across the front in red for the cake-cutting session.
The bride and groom were also seen exchanging vows in front of small crowd of people inside the theatre. Aside from dancing indoors, Williams and Gilbert were photographed kissing while another cute photo showed the pair smacking the wedding cake into each other’s face as they posed for the cameras.
Hopeless Records, the label that manages New Found Glory, posted an image of the newly weds leaving their ceremony together as husband and wife along with the caption, “Congratulations Chad & Hayley!!!”
