Country singer Brett Young is off the market. The bestselling "Like I Loved You" singer tied the knot on Saturday.
Brett Young wed his longtime girlfriend Taylor Mills in a ceremony officiated by his pastor father and his manager. But it's wasn't clear from the start that they'd make it to the altar, reported People.
The couple met when Mills, now 31, was a college student at Arizona State University. He saw a picture of her on her roommate's Facebook, and he decided he wanted to meet her.
“I finally was able to finagle a group hang and it was pretty platonic," said Young.
Young, now 37, moved to Orange County, California. Four months later, he received a text from Mills. They began long distance dating until she moved to Santa Monica after graduation.
“About every other weekend I drove from Orange County to Arizona to see her,” Young tells PEOPLE.
Sadly, after dating for six years, they called it quits when Young moved to Nashville to pursue his country singing career.
“It was one of those things where we needed to be apart to grow up before we could come back together,” says Young about their two-year break.
Young didn't forget Mills. Many of the breakup and love songs on his debut album were written about Mills. After two years, Young texted Mills out of the blue.
“I didn’t have his phone number. When you [texted me], it took my breath away," said Mills.
The second time around, their relationship was so much better.
"All the good stuff was still there, but all the bad stuff that was born out of immaturity was gone,” says Young. “It was just really easy and obvious.”
The couple planned their wedding while Young toured with Thomas Rhett.
The couple was married over the weekend with 200 of their closest friends and family at the Bighorn Golf Club in Palm Desert, California. They revealed that they wrote their own vows.

“That’s definitely the moment that was most difficult to get through and not sound like a big baby,” Young says about their emotional ceremony. “I cried writing my vows. When you’ve been together for 10 years, on and off, it’s really overwhelming to sit down and put into few words how you feel about somebody.”
Young also shared that starting a family soon isn't out of the picture.
“We’ve been together for a long time and we do want kids soon,” says Young. “This is the beginning of our life together, and I’m excited to say husband and wife!”
Congratulations to the couple! May God bless their union!
