The “American Idol” alum and Christian rocker wed girlfriend Annie Coggeshall in Nashville on Friday, and took to social media the following morning to share the first personal photo from their special day.
“Married my best friend last night,” the 24-year-old posted on Saturday, captioning an Instagram snap of himself giving his beaming bride a tender kiss on the cheek.

“Sitting in the grooms room getting ready for one of the biggest and best decisions of my life,” he Tweeted, later adding, “You guys. I’m getting married in 2 hours!!!!!!!!!” and “ONE HOUR!!!!!!”
The couple got engaged in September after a Disney World proposal, which Colton joked was more emotional for him than Annie.
“She said yes!!!” he wrote on Instagram at the time, including the hashtags “#bestdayever,” “#icried” and “shedidnt.”
On Saturday, the “Through All of It” singer hinted that he may have shed a few tears on the big day as well.
