The former American Idol fifth-season finalist eloped with Kyle Jacobs, her songwriter fiance, and got married on January 1, People reported Tuesday.

Pickler, 24, and Jacobs, 37, exchanged vows in a "small, intimate ceremony on a private island in the Caribbean," her representative told People.

"Private Island. Caribbean. Cigar in one hand, Rum in the other. Someone just called me 'Mrs. Jacobs.'....sounds nice," Pickler wrote her Twitter account Tuesday afternoon.

After meeting through friends in 2008, Pickler and Jacobs got engaged on June 15 -- the birthday of the Idol alum's late grandmother Faye Pickler -- when Jacobs proposed during a picnic on a Florida beach at sunset.

"We had a little champagne and talked and laughed and cried," Jacobs told People at the time.
