Its officially official. One half of the engaged country duo Dan + Shay’s day has come and gone and Dan Smyers is a married man. He and his fiance Abby had quite the unique day too… Taste of Country reports the two had 3 of their dogs in their bridal party! Their dogs Chief, Joy, and Ghost made the perfect edition to their already perfect day. The adorable pups were -of course – dressed in tuxedos and a dress for the wedding ceremony. The ceremony and reception all took place in the city where they live and fell in love, Nashville.

Now this just leaves the other half of Dan + Shay… Shay Mooney to tie the knot. Him and his fiance (who got engaged last August) just welcomed in a baby boy, Asher Mooney to the mix a few weeks ago and Shay says “We’re thinking fall for a wedding, but we’re still getting our plans together,” Mooney told PEOPLE in March. “I’m letting Hannah take care of most of that. We’re getting the details taken care of, but our main focus is Asher right now.”
