Kellie Pickler is a newlywed!

After a proposal on the beach last June, the "elated" country singer, 24, and Kyle Jacobs, 37, eloped, exchanging vows on Jan. 1, in a "small, intimate ceremony on a private island in the Caribbean," her rep tells PEOPLE.

The couple, who have been dating since 2008, got engaged on June 15, 2010, when Jacobs popped the question on a Florida beach.

"It was the most spiritual moment." Pickler, who got her start on American Idol, said of the proposal. "We would've gotten married that night had there been a preacher walking by!"



And it looks like married life is agreeing with her. On Tuesday, Pickler Tweeted, "Private Island. Caribbean. Cigar in one hand, Rum in the other. Someone just called me "Mrs. Jacobs."....sounds nice :)"
