Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley is now off the market! He secretly wed his girlfriend Brittney Marie Cole, today in Nashville.  The couple confirmed the happy news exclusively with PEOPLE.

“The whole process has been non-traditional,” Kelley shares with PEOPLE. “There was no official proposal or exchanging of rings. We had just fallen in love, and I knew I couldn’t live without her. It sounds like a terrible cheesy movie, but when you know, you know!”

The couple have known each other for over three years and have been dating for the past seven months. “The first day we hung out, we just knew that it was something real,” Kelley says. “I’d never wanted to make someone my wife before. I always want her by my side.”

“We just knew,” agrees Brittney Cole. “There was this energy that we had never felt before.”

PEOPLE reports that the couple wed at sunset with 40 guests, including Florida Georgia Line’s other half Tyler Hubbard.

As far as starting a family, they indicated that they have no immediate plans, other than possibly getting a dog! Brian says, “One day for sure, but it’s too crazy with everything going on right now. We’re enjoying being with each other. It’s a beautiful love story. It really is.”
