Scotty McCreery and Wife Gabi Can't Wait to Move in Together — Though Keeping the Place Clean May Be a 'Challenge'
Scotty McCreery is currently honeymooning with his wife Gabi Dugal in Bora Bora, but once the newlyweds are back from paradise they have something even more exciting to look forward to: moving in together.
“We haven’t moved in together yet so I’m living with my guys and she’s living with one of her best friends,” the American Idol winner told PEOPLE exclusively ahead of their wedding on Saturday in North Carolina. “I love my guys but it’ll be much nicer coming back from the road and seeing my wife instead of three motley dudes sitting on the couch!”
Though the couple, both 24, first met in kindergarten, they didn’t start dating until six years ago. Read more
Scotty McCreery Marries Gabi Dugal in North Carolina
Country star Scotty McCreery and his girlfriend of six years Gabi Dugal tied the knot in the North Carolina mountains on Saturday in front of more than 200 of their loved ones, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.
“We’ve been dating six years and have known each other our whole lives. That kind of story doesn’t happen too often nowadays,” the American Idolalum — whose single “This Is It” details their love story and sweet proposal — told PEOPLE before the wedding. “I support her dreams and she supports mine.”

The ceremony, which was officiated by McCreery’s childhood pastor, followed a jam-packed weekend of activities, including a Cajun-style shrimp boil on Thursday night and a rehearsal dinner on Friday “up on the cliffs” of the couple’s wedding venue.
McCreery and Dugal — who wore an “elegant” bridal gown by Morilee for her big day — exchanged personalized wedding vows before heading to celebrate their new union with family and friends at their rollicking reception.
The newlyweds, both 24, shared their first dance to Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” and their guests tucked into Cajun dishes (a nod to the bride’s Louisiana roots), steak and pasta. Instead of a traditional large wedding cake, the couple served an assortment of pies.
“I kept it very classic,” Dugal says about their black, white and gold color scheme and decor. “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.”
Adds her husband, whose dad Michael served as best man: “Very Beauty and the Beast!”
