Celebrity Couple Celebrates 5 Years of Wedded Bliss
Award-winning singer-songwriter Gary Chapman and his wife, Nashville Wives star Cassie Piersol Chapman, say they’re so in love, one wedding just wasn’t enough.
“We got married Dec. 22, 2008 in a very small ceremony my father performed,” says Gary, 56, a five-time Grammy-nominated, seven-time Dove Award-winning artist who recently released his first album in a decade, The Truth (www.garychapmanmusic.com).
“The next year, we had a mountaintop wedding with our friends in Breckenridge, Colo. Cassie’s grandmother married us at a Renaissance fair, and last year, we tied the knot in Las Vegas. What can I say – we like getting married!”
It’s just one of the ways the couple keeps the romance alive, says Cassie, 33, who stars in the new TNT show Private Lives of Nashville Wives, premiering Feb. 24.
“Weddings are a beautiful celebration of our love for each other and a reminder that this is serious!” she says. “So many people get married and they’re divorced two years later. We don’t plan to be among them!”
What are some of the Chapmans’ other secrets for keeping their romance burning bright?
The two also both see at least one more wedding in their future – not counting the times they quietly exchange rings and mouth “I do” while attending friends’ and family weddings.
“We hope to have a real ceremony soon,” Cassie says. “I want my dad to walk me down the aisle and mom to button me up.”
