According to People, the couple made things official in Nashville, Tennessee surrounded by 250 of their closest friends and family.

“Our first date was five-and-a-half years ago. After dating for a couple months, I knew [he was going to be] my husband,” Stevens told People. “From the second that I met him up until now, he’s made me feel special and more than enough every single day.”

The tear-jerking moments didn’t stop there, as Stevens revealed the surprise she had for DiGiovanni.

“Paul’s mom passed away when he was 15, so I just wanted him to feel like she was with us,” says Stevens. “His aunt gave me a piece of his mom’s wedding dress, and I had it sewn into Paul’s jacket on the inside and covered with a patch.”

DiGiovanni’s Boys Like Girls bandmates Martin Johnson and John Keefe stood by his side on the wonderful day as groomsmen, with the musicians giving a special performance at the couple’s reception.

As previously reported, the couple were engaged on New Years Eve 2017, later revealing the news on Instagram.

Earlier this year, Stevens opened up about how she met DiGiovanni, revealing that she had been a fan long before they ever met.

Stevens told the story on Jimmy Kimmel Live where she also discussed her American Idol run and her show The Bold Type.

“I actually was in attendance at one of his shows when I was 14 years old,” she says. “It’s not weird though because we didn’t meet then, we met seven years later.”

Congrats to the happy couple! AP wishes you all the best in your life together!

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
