Congratulations are in order for Phillip Phillips. The 25-year-old singer who won “American Idol” season 11 exchanged wedding vows with his beautiful fiancee, Hannah Blackwell, on Saturday evening, October 24 in Albany, Georgia.
“I’m so excited,” the groom told PEOPLE. “What I love most about her is she’s my best friend and I can tell her anything. I just love her.” His bride gushed, “I feel like when I met Phillip, he was the answer to so many questions that I had. He just makes everything make sense for me.”
Phillip donned a Billy Reid tuxedo for the special day while Hannah walked down the aisle in a Hayley Paige wedding gown. They tied the knot at the Resora Plantation in front of 250 of their closest friends and family.
The couple first met at an event for his sister’s charity organization Mission Change nearly seven years ago. They dated when he auditioned for “Idol” and got engaged Christmas last year.
