“I went with greenery and white flowers, some lanterns and candle votives [for a] rustic feel. We fell in love with the mountains during the summertime [when Scotty proposed], and our [venue] is like a little castle in the woods.”
Dugal is a pediatric nurse at Duke University Hospital in Durham, North Carolina.
For their honeymoon, the couple went to Tahiti. The two then headed back to Seattle to move into their new home as husband and wife.
The winner of American Idol revealed that his single This Is It from his album Seasons Change captures the couple’s love story and describes how he proposed to her.
McCreery won the tenth season of the talent show back in 2011, and released his debut studio album, Clear as Day, in October the same year.
This year has been an interesting one for the singer professionally as well with his single "Five More Minutes" reaching the top on Billboard and Mediabase.
