A GLAAD Media Award winner for Outstanding Breakthrough Music Artist and proud lesbian, Rose has been turning the contemporary country music world on its head with queer stories and LGBTQ+ representation. Rose told PEOPLE that Eamon has been a muse for her new music: “When it comes to writing, it always puts a big smile on my face when I do get to write about being happy and falling in love,” she said. “Whether it’s the moment writing about the night that I met Daira, or just where we’re at in our relationship right now.”

The “Whatcha Know About That” singer wore a custom black-and-white Indochino suit, while Eamon donned a mermaid-cut lace illusion Galia Lahav dress, as the lovers tied the knot in a modern, black-tie wedding at the Bridge Building on the riverfront in Nashville. During the ceremony, the couple exchanged handwritten vows as a close friend officiated.
The reception featured fun touches, including disco balls and neon lettered signs, with a rooftop dance floor overlooking the skyline of the city the newlyweds call home. Rose and Eamon chose their favorite drink–espresso martinis–as the event’s signature cocktail, which paired nicely with the dessert spread of chocolate mousse, strawberry shortcake and mini donuts. For their guest book, the couple fittingly chose a record of all the songs that are meaningful to their relationship.
