Rachel Bradshaw has tied the knot!
The singer and actor tied the knot with Chase Lybbert on Saturday at the Denton Country Club in Texas, in front of 300 guests and her father, former NFL player, and FOX NFL Sunday analyst Terry Bradshaw.
“I’m marrying my childhood pal,” the 35-year-old Bradshaw Bunch star tells PEOPLE. “Everyone in our families knows each other really well. And making that permanent is really something remarkable for all of us. For almost a decade, our mothers have been attempting to set us up, so today is the finest day ever for both of our families! There’s so much affection and comfort here.”
The ceremony took place at the historic Courthouse-on-the-Square Museum, and the festivities kicked out at 6:30 p.m. when the bride’s father escorted her down the aisle.
A modern ceremony is not in the cards, says Bradshaw. “I didn’t feel like dealing with the norm at all. As this is my second marriage, I decided to throw a huge celebration in honor of the occasion. It was essentially a reception, but it was tailored to us.” (Bradshaw’s first husband, former NFL player Rob Bironas of the Tennessee Titans, died in a vehicle accident in 2014.)
The country club where the couple exchanged vows is significant to them and their family.
Bradshaw elaborates, “Our parents’ parents have been members, and we are members.” “And the day I first laid eyes on him, June 28th, 2021, was the day I fell in love with him. My girlfriend Erin and I were having a wine tasting at the country club. So that’s where we met and fell in love. Both of his parents tied the knot there. Thus, I decided, “You know what? The country club was our venue of choice. All of this is destined to happen.”
There were “a ton of balloons” and white, matte white, and pearlescent flowers and balloons all throughout the room. “Airy, light, and bright,” as described by Bradshaw.
Dressed in a gown by Zhivago for the ceremony, the bride changed into a couture jumpsuit by Nashville-based designer Olia Zavozina. She also donned a pair of cowboy boots that were appropriately called “epic” and had the couple’s names and wedding dates.
Lybbert enjoyed a whiskey sour, while Bradshaw sipped on a dirty martini topped with edible glitter. The menu included a variety of finger foods such as charcuterie, a seafood tower, sliders, hush puppies, a macaroni and cheese station, a baked potato station, a salad station, and even corn dogs and green beans.

As Bradshaw puts it, “Southern everything.” “Just delicious nibbles. I’d rather have everyone standing and having fun than sitting about idly.” To keep things light, the newlyweds sat at the same table with their extended family.
She describes the reception as “champagne and like a meatball or a tuna tartare being served to you as soon as you walk in the door.” I’d rather have folks out having fun, eating, and drinking than sitting around doing nothing.

Instead of a single large cake, they had a plethora of smaller desserts such as cookies, little carrot cakes, and cobblers. All the sweets you could ever want!
Bradshaw explains that after becoming engaged on October 28, 2022, the couple worked together to arrange every detail of the wedding. “This has been the most incredible time!”
As the newlyweds settle into married life, they reflect with gratitude on the many friends and family members who were able to share in their joy.
All the folks we’ve known our whole lives are here, and that’s what makes it so wonderful, she says.
