"The Voice" winner Jake Hoot and his partner Brittney Hoyt tied the knot in an intimate and spiritual outdoor ceremony. The singer performed two songs for his new bride to celebrate their love.
Country singer Jake Hoot is officially a married man! Hoot, who was crowned the winner of season 17 of "The Voice," walked down the aisle with his girlfriend, Brittney Hoyt, in a beautiful and intimate ceremony.
In an exclusive feature with People Magazine, the lovebirds gave fans an insight into their special day, which took place at Saddle Woods Farm in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, on Sunday, March 7.

Days before the nuptials, Hoot teased fans with a sweet image of him and Hoyt in a warm embrace as she flaunted her ring. He informed fans in the caption that he was counting down four days until Hoyt became his wife.
Hoyt, a delivery nurse, shared with the publication having the ceremony at Saddle Woods was a dream come true, and with the help of a friend who did the decoration, the outdoor farm came to life.
The beautiful bride stunned in a dashing lace gown by Adrianna Papell, with her oval-shaped diamond engagement ring stealing the spotlight. Hoot, on the other hand, stayed true to his country roots with cowboy boots.
The couple also wrote their own vows and a separate one to honor Hoot's 5-year-old daughter, Macy.
The bespoke Ariat-designed boots were designed for the groom and all his groomsmen as they paired them with black suits. Many of their loved ones played a role in bringing the intimate ceremony to perfection.
Amid the celebration, Hoot and Hoyt didn't forget what was most important to them — their faith. The couple revealed that they prayed before the ceremony and had a close friend, Brian Nhira, lead a worship session.
They also had a communion segment where Hoyt's siblings performed. Perhaps the highlight of the beautiful ceremony was when Hoot surprised his beloved wife with not one but two renditions of his original song.
The "Tennessee Strong" crooner performed "Hallelujah," a song he co-wrote with Kyndon Oakes, Renn, and Lee Turner. He then sang "And Then Suddenly," which was inspired by Hoyt, for their first dance. A touched Hoyt recalled:
"I wept like a baby when he surprised me with the song 'And Then Suddenly' for our first dance."
The couple also wrote their own vows and a separate one to honor Hoot's 5-year-old daughter, Macy, whom he shares with his ex-wife Jessica Lynn Steele. Hoot rose to fame for his stellar performance in the NBC singing competition.
Hoot won the 17th season with Kelly Clarkson as his coach and has been on a roll ever since. The incredibly tall artist, who is 6-foot 6-inches, is the second of eight siblings and partially grew up in the Dominican Republic.
Before getting his hands on music, he played college football for Tennessee Tech University. He snagged the crown during the season finale with an original song, "Better Off Without You," based on his failed marriage.
