Congratulations go out to singer, songwriter and one-third of the Pistol Annies, Ashley Monroe, who tied the knot with Chicago White Sox pitcher John Danks, Thursday (Oct. 24) in an intimate ceremony at East Tennessee’s Blackberry Farms—the same spot that hosted the nuptials of Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock last weekend.

Ashley was breathtaking in a custom-made Haute Hippie wedding gown, while the groom was attired in Armani. Ashley’s Pistol Annies pal Miranda Lambert and singer/songwriter Jessi Alexander attended the bride while the groom’s vows were witnessed by his brother Jordan Danks and his father.

The wedding was officiated by . . . wait for it . . . Blake Shelton. Fun, right?

Ashley and John are holding off on a honeymoon until she finishes her current run on CMT’s Hunter Hayes Let’s Be Crazy Tour.
