Jon Pardi is a busy man. After releasing his critically acclaimed Heartache Medication album in September and wrapping up a successful run of headlining shows in support of the release, the country hitmaker is now in full-on wedding planning mode with his bride-to-be, Summer Duncan.
Pardi shared a few details about his upcoming nuptials with People at last week’s CMA Awards, revealing that he and Summer plan to wed in May of 2020 in Montana. The pair will exchange vows at a picturesque venue overlooking Yellowstone National Park.
“I love Montana,” Pardi told the publication. “I’ve been going there for about 10 years. My friends have a ranch out there.”
The singer/songwriter, who proposed to Duncan on the stage of Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium after performing back-to-back sold-out shows, decided on a May wedding for several reasons, the most importing being the weather.
“Guess what, a non-sweaty wedding,” he joked. “It’s gonna be highs in the 60s. I don’t like sweating.”
With the planning underway, Pardi and Duncan have also started to compile a guest list, which he says included about 200 names. He admitted he’s not quite sure who will make the trek to Montana though.
“We’ll see who comes,” he said. “It’s more of an adventure wedding, really.”
As for the other important details, like the wedding cake and the menu, Pardi told Taste of Country that they’re still working out specifics. There’s one thing they have decided on though: pizza!
“Instead of cake, she wants pizza. So we’re actually doing that,” Pardi shared, explaining that his fiancée would like to cut a pizza instead of cake. They decided to do both, so they’ll serve pizza as a snack later in the evening.
As Pardi continues to pull together plans for his wedding, he will still be touring, playing various fairs and festivals throughout the next few months.
