The women mixed both traditional and nontraditional touches to their nuptials on Saturday.

Kim Kardashian isn’t the only star who got hitched on Saturday. Chely Wright, the country singer who generated lots of speculation before coming out last year, also celebrated her nuptials on the same day.

Wright married her girlfriend, Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) civil rights activist Lauren Blitzer Saturday.

“What a beautiful day for a wedding,” Wright tweeted.

The couple made their vows to each other in front of two hundred guests at the home of Blitzer’s aunt in Connecticut, reports E!Online.

They celebrated traditionally by both wearing white gowns, but did some decidedly untraditional touches starting with not wearing veils. They were also doubly blessed by having both a rabbi and a reverend preside over the ceremony. Blitzer is Jewish and Wright is Christian.

“Let’s get this party started,” Wright tweeted later Saturday evening along with a photo of her with her new bride.
