After months of planning, Carly Pearce and Michael Ray are preparing to tie the knot “very soon.”
According to Pearce, all of the final details are now set in stone, including the couple’s hand-written vows.
As a songwriter, Pearce admits she expected the vow writing process to come easy, but that wasn’t necessarily the case. While she says it was a “sweet moment” to experience putting her love for Ray on paper, it wasn’t a simple task.
“I found it really hard,” she confesses to Country Now and other media. “I really didn’t expect to find it that hard. I thought, ‘I know what I want to say. I’m a songwriter, it’ll be great.’ But it was very hard to articulate in a short little piece to this person where they’ve taken you, what you’ve seen, your promises to them, where you want to go. I mean, it was pretty hard for me but I think I got it.”
As their wedding day nears, many fans have been trying to guess when and where Pearce and Ray will tie the knot. All of the interest in their wedding is something Pearce admits is a bit strange because she doesn’t consider herself or her fiancé a celebrity.
“It’s weird to me that people care about my wedding,” she says. “It’s funny to me and I hope I always have this…feeling of just, ‘oh my gosh, is this really happening to me?” I think when you work for something so long you’re never going to take that for granted. I hope that I always view my career the way that I do right now because I don’t really view it as like I’ve made it or like I’m famous.”
As for fans trying to figure out when they’ll say I do, Pearce jokes that it’s not that difficult to decipher if you examine their touring schedules, however, they do hope to keep the celebration as private as possible.
“We really are so in love and we’re thankful that we get the opportunity to have people who care about our wedding,” she says. “We’re taking it as it is. I don’t think anybody will camp out but if they do, you know, I’ll give them some wine. It’s fine.”
