The 21-year-old reality star and his longtime love exchanged vows under a grand flower arch in the middle of a forest, with Brighton in a showstopping V-cut gown with cap sleeves and a long train, and Reed in a navy-blue suit.

Mary Kate Robertson, John Luke’s wife, posted a sweet image of the new cousins-in-law toting bouquets of wild flowers. “Congratulations to the newest Robertson couple!!!” she captioned the image. “I love you both so much and am so proud of you and excited for you! Brighton, it was quite the honor to stand by you … so thankful to have you as one of my best friends and now cousins!!”

Missy Robertson, Reed’s mother, similarly shared congratulatory sentiments to the new couple with a collage of photos from the night.

“Impossible to put into one post all of the wonderful moments of last night, but here are a few,” she wrote. “I’ll post more later as I am a very proud and blessed mama! #ReedLovesBrighton #BlessedBlessedBlessed.” Among the moments she captured were the exchange of vows, the cutting of the cake and a special moment when aspiring musician Reed sang for his bride.

The couple got engaged almost a year ago during a December trip to New York City. The Harding University college student popped the question on a bridge in Central Park at sunset with a very special diamond sparkler. The 3.01-carat diamond was a family heirloom that belonged to his new fiancée, and the couple designed the unique setting together and had it made in Nashville. But Brighton didn't see the finished product until it was placed on her finger.

"I couldn't be more excited to marry this amazing woman. My fiancé is a babe in every way," he captioned one sweet photo, of the proposal as viewed from his perspective.
