American Idol runner-up Crystal Bowersox got married to musician Brian Walker in Chicago on Sunday. They were engaged last week itself. However couples are longtime friends before things turned romantic in recent months."Our lives have never made more sense than they do right now," Bowersox tells PEOPLE. "I can't believe how incredibly lucky we are to have found so much laughter, love, and light within each other. We're one happy WalkerSox family."
Bowersox, 25, wore an Earth-friendly hemp and cotton gown from Vermont designer Tara Lynn that features macramé, seashell and bead detailing and was created in the designer's solar-powered studio. Their rings were designed by Walker and crafted by Chicago's Traci Coughlin and Steve Quick Jewelers.
There were 60 friends and family in the ceremony along with Bowersox's son Tony, 1 1/2, from a previous relationship. Couple planned to celebrate with a reception featuring a laughing Buddha cake from Bleeding Heart Bakery, a local organic and sustainable business, and performances from the groom and several musician pals.
