Maggie Rose “ain’t your mama” – but now she’s somebody’s wife! The country singer tied the knot over the weekend, saying “I Do” to longtime love Austin Marshall in Potomac, Maryland, on Saturday. “We were surrounded by family and friends from all over the world in my hometown of Potomac, Maryland,” Rose tells PEOPLE exclusively of her nuptials. “My mom and unofficial wedding planner Lizz Durante worked so hard to give us a special day.” Rose and Marshall exchanged vows at Our Lady of Mercy – the church where most of the singer’s immediate and extended family have wed – and celebrated with a reception at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda. The “I Ain’t Your Mama” singer had live music from her family and guests, including bridesmaid Natalie Murphy, a violinist and vocalist who performed throughout the ceremony. In addition, groomsman Dallas Davidson sang an original tune called “She’s All Yours,” co-written by Rose, while the star danced with her father at the reception.

The church, Our Lady of Mercy, looms large in my life. I know it well. My wife and her siblings attended the parish school. Her grandparents were buried from there.

And that’s not all: Sargent Shriver’s funeral was held there, too.
