He is the only exception!

Paramore's Hayley Williams married New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert in Nashville over the weekend after nearly eight years together and over a year of engagement, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The orange-haired songstress wore a short-sleeved fitted bodice with a ballgown skirt, before changing into a white t-shirt emblazoned with Gilbert's name in red.

Photos shared on social media show Williams, 27, and Gilbert, 34, sharing a romantic dance and also cutting their deconstructed wedding cake, which was topped with two figures holding raised hands.

Williams and Gilbert began dating in 2008, and became engaged when the guitarist proposed on Christmas 2014. The couple broke the big news a week later, taking to social media to tell fans they were "so psyched."

While the big day's guest-list has yet to be revealed it's safe to say at least one of Williams' friends missed out on the fête: Taylor Swift was busy with maid of honor duties at another wedding in Pennsylvania on Saturday.
