NASHVILLE, Tenn. – No. 1 Billboard recording artist Meghan Linsey and GRAMMY-nominated producer Tyler Cain have eloped in Maui this past weekend, People.com exclusively reveals.
"We are just so excited to finally be married," Cain tells People. "We've been together for 10 years in March and we are more in love now than we've ever been. We just knew if we don't do it now, then when? With COVID, it's so hard to know when it would be a good time to have a large gathering. We love our family and friends so much and don't want to put anyone at risk."
Linsey and Cain got engaged with the stunning backdrop of Alaska during a trip in 2019. Since then, the couple has tried to plan their wedding three times, but had to cancel due to COVID. They finally decided to elope and worked with Simply Eloped to plan their dream wedding in just 10 days.
Linsey's dress was designed by Olia Zavozina, who previously designed dresses for Olympian and gold medalist Shawn Johnson along with Claire Bowen and Hayden Panettiere, both stars of the ACM award-winning show Nashville. Linsey added that it was "really important" for her to get the right fit.
"I wanted something that would hug my curves but still look elegant. The beading and button details on the back are beautiful and the train is miles long, which I love. Olia is the sweetest human and so insanely talented. She made my dress two years ago and has held on to it all this time!"
