The Cadillac Three's Neil Mason just married his girlfriend of five years Chelsea Eager. People reports the two tied the knot in the bride's hometown of New Braunfels, Texas on Saturday, January 4 at Eager's parent's hotel, Gruene Mansion Inn Bed & Breakfast.
Ahead of the big day Mason, who's the drummer for Cadillac Three, shared how important it was for Eager to get married in her hometown where she grew up.
"I’m from Nashville and since we live here, so much of our life is based around my hometown,” he said. "It’s fun to incorporate hers. All the vendors we are using [are] local to New Braunfels."
One of the local vendors was Faire Floral, whose co-owner Kortni Johnson, has been a friend of Eager's since fourth grade. "I always knew she’d do the flowers at my wedding," Eager says.
"Neil and Chelsea’s wedding will flow with green and white florals throughout the ceremony and reception to highlight the beauty that is already set at the Gruene Mansion Inn," said Johnson and Faire Floral co-owner Kate Weaver. "The event will have a classic garden-esque vibe using lush greens like Italian ruscus, ivy, jasmine, and pops of winter-y evergreens. White ranunculus [which is Eager’s favorite] and garden roses, foxglove and astilbe will sprinkled throughout the greenery to create a beautiful backdrop to a beautiful day."
The ceremony was intimate consisting of just about 40 guests including Mason's bandmates Jaren Johnston and Kelby Ray. The bridal party was made up of Mason's sister, Kate Mason, and Eager's sister Ashley Murphy. The wedding was officiated by Eager's father.
Eager wore a dress from a local bridal shop which she described as "simple and classic." The two had their first dance as a married couple to Tom Petty's "Here Comes My Girl."
Mason and Eager first met through mutual friends and have been together for five-and-a-half-years. Over the years the couple says they keep their relationship strong by "communicating as much as possible, whether we are home or traveling."
Congrats to the newly weds!
