Country singer Chely Wright and partner Lauren Blitzer tied the knot Saturday at a private home in Connecticut – and now the happy newlyweds have shared a photo from their ceremony.

It was a serendipitous start to what would be a fairy tale ending.
Just two weeks after coming out last year, country singer Chely Wright met her partner, Lauren Blitzer. And on Saturday, they were married.
Wright, 40, wed Blitzer, 30, a GLBT Civil Rights activist, at Blitzer’s aunt’s home in Connecticut. Both brides wore white wedding gowns by J. Crew Bridal, but opted out of wearing veils because, Wright told PEOPLE, "We like our hair too much!"

In the midst of planning an interfaith, same-sex wedding, country singer Chely Wright says she's all about tradition, right down to the gown.
"It will definitely be a wedding dress," she says. But there's a complicating factor in that fiancée Lauren Blitzer will also be wearing white.
"When two women get married, you want the dresses to coordinate, so we've been showing pictures to each other," Wright, 40, told PEOPLE after a Nashville Film Festival screening of Wish Me Away, an autobiographical film about her decision last year to come out.
One tradition they'll do without? "We're not wearing veils – we both like our hair too much!" she says.

Less than a year after coming out, Chely Wright is engaged.
"Out country singer Chely Wright and her fiancée, Lauren Blitzer, a GLBT Civil Rights activist, have set a date and plan to be married in Connecticut Aug. 20," Wright's rep tells PEOPLE. "They met through their youth advocacy work, and say that their passion for Scrabble holds them together."
"The freedom of being out and open about who I am allowed me to find and fall in love with Lauren," Wright tells PEOPLE, "the most amazing woman I've ever known."
Wright hid her sexuality up until last May for fear of being shunned by the country music community.
