Danielle Peck Elopes With Josh Smith
Danielle Peck is a married woman! The songstress eloped with her longtime boyfriend, Josh Smith, on Thursday, June 12 at the Belleek Castle in Ballina, Ireland.
"This day was a dream come true for me," Peck gushes. "I've married my best friend and look forward to spending the rest of my life with the one I love, and I truly couldn't be happier!"
Smith was overseas serving as the tour production manager for the Eagles. The couple, who began dating after meeting at a surprise birthday party for Tennessee Titan Rob Bironas, quietly decided to cancel their elaborate wedding plans and elope while he was in Europe with the band.
"We both were eagerly anticipating getting married to each other," she explains, "and due to our busy travel schedules, it made the most sense for us to take advantage of this opportunity at a romantic castle in Ireland!"
Smith proposed last December by re-creating their first date.
“We were talking about how perfect everything has been between us -- just like a dream!" Peck recalls. "And then he got down on one knee and asked me ‘to make his dream come true,’ and I said yes!”
The couple will have to enjoy much of newlywed life on the road. After Smith returns from touring with the Eagles, he will hit the road with Jennifer Nettles for her summer tour. Meanwhile, Peck will put the finishing touches on her upcoming album, 'How Freedom Feels.'
A reception for the bride and groom is planned in Nashville for later this summer.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
