Many Florida Georgia Line fans may not have even realized Brian Kelley had a serious girlfriend, let alone one that he was secretly planning to wed.
Well, the cat's out of the bag now – the singer, 28, married Brittney Marie Cole, 23, on Monday in an outdoor ceremony at Kelley's Nashville home, the couple confirm to PEOPLE exclusively.
"The whole process has been non-traditional," Kelley tells PEOPLE of the surprise nuptials. "There was no official proposal or exchanging of rings. We had just fallen in love, and I knew I couldn't live without her. It sounds like a terrible cheesy movie, but when you know, you know!"
