Today, the 24-year-old American Idol season 10 winner and country crooner married Gabi Dugal, his high school sweetheart and girlfriend of six years, his rep confirmed to E! News.

"This is it," McCreery tweeted that morning.

The two exchanged personalized wedding vows in the North Carolina mountains in front of more than 200 family and friends, People reported. The bride wore a sleeveless, V-neck Morilee wedding gown with lace accents. McCreery's childhood pastor officiated the ceremony and the newlyweds danced to Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling in Love" for their first dance, the outlet said.

"We've been dating six years and have known each other our whole lives. That kind of story doesn't happen too often nowadays," McCreery told People before the wedding. "I support her dreams and she supports mine."
