American Idol alums, Ace Young, 32, and Diana Degarmo, 25, have been sweethearts for quite some. And now they’ve made it official. That’s right; the two lovebirds have finally tied the knot. Keep reading for more details.
Young and Degarmo are both Idol alums; however, they did not meet on the show. In fact, it would be several years after their appearances on the show before they would finally meet. Degarmo was a finalist in 2004 during Idol season three, while Young didn’t appear on the show until 2006. So how did the two meet? They met in 2010 while working on the Broadway revival of Hair. And the rest is history!
The couple made a guest appearance on the 2012 season 11 finale show of Idol where Young dropped to one knee and proposed to Degarmo. And of course, she said yes.
According to E! News, Young and Degarmo wed on Saturday, June 1 at the Luxe Sunset Boulevard Hotel in Los Angeles in front of 250 guests, including fellow Idol alums Michael Johns, Elliot Yamin, and Kevin Covais.
It was a very emotional ceremony. Degarmo’s brother returned from Afghanistan to walk her down the aisle. Then the couple exchanged vows they had written themselves before sharing their first dance to a song they co-wrote entitled, “I Do.”
Following the wedding, Young told People Magazine, “Today was the best day of my life. Diana and I are in it forever – she’s my best friend.”
Join us in congratulating the happy couple.
