Crystal Bowersox and her longtime friend/musician Brian Walker have wed. They have been dating a few months and got engaged recently like…September and now they are married! WHOA! If you remember she broke up with her boyfriend during her run on American Idol.
According to People,
They had a whirlwind courtship and an engagement lasting only weeks, but Crystal Bowersox and Brian Walker were hardly strangers in love.
Longtime friends before things turned romantic in recent months, the American Idol runner-up was married to musician Walker in Chicago on Sunday, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.
“Our lives have never made more sense than they do right now,â€ Bowersox tells PEOPLE. â€œI can’t believe how incredibly lucky we are to have found so much laughter, love, and light within each other. We’re one happy WalkerSox family.”
Bowersox, 25, wore an Earth-friendly hemp and cotton gown from Vermont designer Tara Lynn that features macramÃ©, seashell and bead detailing and was created in the designerâ€™s solar-powered studio.
Their rings were designed by Walker and crafted by Chicagoâ€™s Traci Coughlin and Steve Quick Jewelers. The ceremony was held at the club where they couple met during Open Mic Night six years ago.
Among the 60 friends and family in attendance were Bowersox’s son Tony, 1 1/2, from a previous relationship, who served as ring bearer and wore a suit by LinenKids; Season 9 Idol contestant Didi Benami; and Itâ€™s Always Sunny in Philadelphia actor Lance Barber. The ceremony was led by the right reverend Michael Teach from Chicago Acoustic Underground.
