Glee star Kristen Chenoweth has married country musician Josh Bryant in a wedding ceremony in Dallas, Texas.

Chenoweth, who played April Rhodes in five episodes of Glee, started dating Bryant, who is the guitarist for Backroad Anthem, in 2018. They became engaged in October 2021 before they officially wed earlier this month on September 2.

Chenoweth and Bryant spoke to People about their wedding ceremony in great detail, with Chenoweth revealing that she never thought she would actually get married.

"I have been a self-proclaimed bachelorette my whole life. I was never going to get married. I even got engaged before and couldn't do it. Until I met Josh. Then I was like, ‘Why would I ever let this guy go?’ I’m so blessed," she said

The couple had their wedding at a private residence with around 140 guests on the Saturday. Chenoweth revealed that a string quartet played while guests took their seats and their dog, Thunder, served as the ring bearer.

Chenoweth went against tradition, however, as she didn't wear a white dress. Instead, she wore a Pamella Roland dress with a sheer nude and pink overlay.

"I didn’t want to wear white. Simple and elegant. I never thought I’d get married, so I went very non-traditional with the gown. I love it," said Chenoweth, who previously appeared in the Broadway smash Wicked.

“On that day, I want to look and feel like Kristin, and I want Josh to see the girl that he has been with for five years. I'm going to look glamorous and all that, but my hair isn't going to be up to heaven, even though we'll be in Texas. It's going to look like me," she explained.
