Cole Swindell and his wife, Courtney, are back for round two of celebrating their marriage!

After nearly 2 years together, the couple exchanged vows on June 12, 2024, in an intimate ceremony in Sonoma, California.

Their vineyard wedding was attended only by close friends and family. However, wanting to celebrate with a larger group, they held a separate reception just right outside of Nashville, Tennessee. In an exclusive interview with BRIDES, Courtney shared details of their celebration, which included over 250 guests.

“We loved the intimacy of a private ceremony with only our close family, but also wanted to celebrate with our favorite people,” Courtney tells BRIDES. “It was a dream to have a wedding, depart for our honeymoon, and then come back to Nashville to celebrate with everyone!”

The reception theme was elegant and neutral, featuring a color palette of black, white, and various shades of tan. According to Courtney, this choice aimed to be “very neutral but impactful.” The main event was hosted in a black-framed tent, complementing the reception’s color scheme and overall ambiance. Tables were decorated with hundreds of candles, creating the couple’s vision of a “beautiful, candlelit dinner party.”

The event was filled with thoughtful touches, from small yet beautiful details like custom marble trays shaped like their home states, used for passed appetizers by the catering team, to larger gestures such as proudly displaying Cole’s late father’s guitar in his honor. These special details surrounded the incredible day.

Cole and Courtney’s love story began with a chance meeting several years ago. In 2022, Swindell revealed on The Bobby Bones Show that they first met at an event for NASCAR.

“I’m a big NASCAR fan and she works with [energy drink brand] Monster [Energy],” Swindell explained. “We just kind of met and exchanged numbers and kept in touch over the years but it never was anything, you know, just kind of friends, randomly saw her here and there, but the [“Some Habits”] video kind of changed everything.”
