It looks like Brett Young and Taylor Mills Young pulled a fast one on family, friends, and fans.
The couple publicly got married in November of last year but it turns out they said "I do" three months prior in a secret ceremony in Nashville.
Taylor revealed the information in a heartfelt Instagram post to celebrate her one year and one month anniversary with the "Ticket To L.A." singer. "8.10.18 was the day I legally married my soulmate," she wrote. "We decided not to tell anyone we were married before our wedding day."
She went on to explain that the country singer was home for one day and the thought occurred to them as they passed the Rhinestone Wedding Chapel on a walk. "We walked from our house down the street to the Rhinestone Wedding Chapel on music row in Nashville and just like that, a sweet little man married us," she wrote.
There was a huge sign (literally and figuratively) that the couple made the right decision to tie the knot in the little chapel near their home. "We left the Rhinestone Wedding Chapel hand in hand and realized that right next door was a poster commemorating Brett’s current #1 song, 'Mercy'," she said.
With the caption, she posted a series of photos of the pair holding the marriage license and kissing as well as a couple of adorable videos right after they got married.

Reminiscing about 8.10.18, which will forever be one of the happiest and most special days of my life [swipe to see the video where I couldn’t stop giggling.] 8.10.18 was the day I legally married my soulmate. We decided not to tell anyone we were married before our wedding day [with the exception of my sister because she’s the best secret keeper.] We didn’t want to take away from our wedding ceremony in November. Brett was home from the road for one day. We walked from our house down the street to the Rhinestone Wedding Chapel on music row in Nashville and just like that, a sweet little man married us. We had passed this funny little chapel many, many times and never did I think I would get married there one day. After we got engaged we talked about getting legally married soon after. So of course we thought that getting married at the little chapel on music row was only fitting instead of at the courthouse. On 8.10.18, now married we left the Rhinestone Wedding Chapel hand in hand and realized that right next door was a poster commemorating Brett’s current #1 song, Mercy. It was a sign [no pun intended.] It was perfect. So, happy 1 year [and 1 month] to my perfect person. I’m so thankful that you’ve trusted me with your heart. I’m thankful for this life that we get to spend together. Together forever. From a cute guy I went on a first date with over 10 years ago, to my husband, my soulmate [and soon the father of my child.] From a crush, to a love I only dreamed could exist. From a friend to family. The story of us continues to grow perfectly and exactly the way god had planned. You’re my everything and my best friend and our journey has just begun. I love you and I’m SO blessed to be your wife and your forever. You fill my heart with so much love and my life with so much happiness. 1 year down, a lifetime to go. #”ItWasAPrettyFunDay” #ForeverYoungT+B 💒 👰🏻🤵🏼💗
