Duck Dynasty star Reed Robertson has wed his high school sweetheart Brighton Thompson.
Reed, 21, and Brighton got married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony on Saturday, October 29, Us Weeklyreported.
The couple reportedly exchanged vows underneath a grand flower arch in the middle of a forest that boasted hues of pink, red, orange and white.
Brighton donned a V-cut gown featuring cap sleeves and a long train, while Reed -- the son of Jase Robertson and Missy Robertson -- sported a navy blue suit.
According to pictures on social media, Brighton had an army of bridesmaids at her side for the big day wearing elegant, long blush dresses.
Missy congratulated the couple on Instagram with a special collage of photos from the wedding night.
"Impossible to put into one post all of the wonderful moments of last night, but here are a few," Missy captioned the image. "I'll post more later as I am a very proud and blessed mama! #ReedLovesBrighton #BlessedBlessedBlessed."
Photos in the collage included the cutting of the cake and an adorable moment when Reed, an aspiring musician, sang a song for his bride.
Reed proposed to Brighton in New York City on December 22, 2015. He had presented his longtime girlfriend with a 3.01 carat diamond ring that's an heirloom in her family, according to Us. Reed popped the question on a bridge in Central Park while the sun was setting.
The couple reportedly designed the diamond-shaped ring in Nashville, TN, together but Brighton only saw the finished product for the first time when Reed slid it onto her finger.
Reed posted a photo of himself down on bended knee that day, showing the proposal from his perspective looking up at Brighton, who was covering her mouth with her hands in joy and shock.
"I couldn't be more excited to marry this amazing woman. My fiance is a babe in every way," Reed captioned the engagement photo on Instagram.
