Jon Pardi and Summer Duncan were married yesterday (11/21) at Saddle Woods Farm in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, after canceling their plans for a Memorial Day weekend wedding due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Sumner told People, “Originally we were getting married in Montana in May, which was going to be unreal. We had an entire lodge rented out for three days for a wedding weekend extravaganza with events daily, a spa, chefs … But then COVID hit, and that all went away. With the sudden postponement — and Jon still having a full tour schedule — we were very limited with available dates.”
She continued, “We had a friend who was married at Saddle Woods last year, and when we walked into their wedding, Jon was like, ‘This is the most amazing wedding and venue ever.’ So when we had to cancel our destination wedding, they were naturally the first venue we called when we knew we had to keep things closer to home. There’s never a right time in 2020 to get married, so after all the planning and replanning we were just happy we got to do it.”
Keeping cautious amid the pandemic, the couple had all of their guests tested prior to the wedding and they held the majority of the ceremony and reception in a flex indoor/outdoor space with heaters to maximize the air ventilation between the venue and the outside. Guests also wore masks.
Duncan posted to Instagram this morning, “Best day of my life @jonpardi @people.”
