‘Tis the season for marriage. After 2010′s spate of celeb breakups, early projections have 2011 pegged as the year of the hookup. American Idol alum Kellie Pickler, 24, has added her name to the brigade of Hollywood celebs who tied the knot as the sun set on 2010.
The girl who rose through the ranks of the recording industry when she told us to “Pick Pickler” during the fifth season of Idol wed Kyle Jacobs, 37 on Jan. 1, PEOPLE said Tuesday.
The lovers eloped in a “small, intimate ceremony on a private island in the Caribbean.”
Kelly and Kyle have been dating since 2008 and announced their engagement shortly after Jacobs popped the question on a Florida beach last June.
“It was the most spiritual moment,” Pickler said at the time. “We would’ve gotten married that night had there been a preacher walking by!”
