In a short-but-sweet June 14 missive from her PR team, Kimberly Perry, lead singer for the hit-making country act The Band Perry, announced that she's officially single no more.

Specifically, Kimberly, 30, finally found time to take a break from The Band Perry's heavy touring schedule to tie the knot with her baseball-playin' beau, 28-year-old Texas Rangers catcher J. P. Arencibia, on Thursday, June 12, at the Christ Chapel First Presbyterian Church in Greeneville, Tenn.

Per the correspondence shared with Examiner, the wedding was "an intimate setting with family and close friends." Moreover, Kimberly's bandmate brothers, Reid and Neil Perry, served as their sister's "best men, while Arencibia's young nieces were his groomswomen."

Among those "close friends" in the pews were country stars Carrie Underwood and her husband, hockey pro Mike Fisher, as well as Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton.

According to a June 12 report in, Kimberly--who met J. P. in winter 2012 at the Florida Strawberry Festival and accepted his proposal, along with a 3.3 carat ring, last fall--said her new hubby was able to quickly make the cut with not only her, but her close family.

"We are such a tight-knit group of Perrys, both in business and personally, so it takes exactly the right person to really walk into that world and hold his own," Kimberly shared with "He definitely is a guy that walks that line perfectly. This is that one that I've waited for."

In the fashion department, Kimberly wore a Reem Acra gown and held a large bouquet of white flowers. Music for nuptials was provided by the Stella Sisters, Lennon and Maisy, and Mac Powell, with a reception immediately following at the home of Kimberly parents, Dr. and Mrs. Steve Perry.

Kudos to the newlyweds from Examiner!
