Paramore and New Found Glory Collide


Christina McLaughlin, Writer

Lead singer, Hayley Williams, of the band Paramore got married to well-known guitarist for the band New Found Glory, Chad Gilbert, on Saturday,  Feb. 20, 2016. After eight years of dating, the pair finally decided to tie the knot. Gilbert proposed on Dec. 25, 2014.

This couple of talented musicians decided to have a “down to earth” wedding at the Franklin Theatre a couple miles out of Nashville, Tennessee. The reception was held in a quaint little eatery in downtown Nashville called “Puckett’s Grocery and Restaurant”.

Williams wore a lace-capped sleeve, high-low Vera Wang dress with her personal style choice,  black Dr. Marten Boots. The groom paired a Ben Sherman suit with Converse for the special day. At the reception, Williams got comfortable and switched into a TopShop midi skirt, a baseball style tee with the word “Chad” across the front and custom Hi-Top Vans.

The newlyweds conducted the usual traditions of cake eating and the first dance all in a small, intimate setting. A wedding to remember for the couple and for their guests as well.
