Jason Mraz Weds
Singer Jason Mraz is a married man after secretly exchanging vows with his longtime girlfriend Christina Carano.
Mraz wed at an intimate outdoor ceremony at the Historic Polegreen Church in Mechanicsville,Virginia on Sunday, with an estimated 50 guests in attendance, according to Eonline.
The groom announced the news by sharing a photo of his bride, wearing a long-sleeved, high-collar lace gown, standing in the aisle at the picturesque venue on Twitter.
“Today I was made the luckiest man in the world,” he captioned the shot.
The new Mr. and Mrs. Mraz met in 2007, but only began dating in late 2011 after Jason split from his former fiancee, singer/songwriter Tristan Prettyman.
“After several years of crushing on him, the stars finally aligned – and now he’s my stud,” Christina previously gushed to The Osider magazine. “We’ve created a really awesome life together and we make a great team.
“He’s the most loving, generous, and most hardworking man I know. These are the most attractive qualities I could ever ask for in a partner. He inspires me and empowers me every day to live my best life and he cares so deeply about the things that really matter. We’re truly blessed in so many ways.”
While Jason was still engaged to Tristan, he vowed not to wed until same-sex marriage was legalized.
“We can’t get married until (gay) marriage is legal and equal…,” he declared while performing at the Concert to Benefit the American Foundation for Equal Rights. “I think giving people the right to marry will be a huge movement in civil rights.”
The benefit gig, held in January, 2011, was organized to protest California’s controversial anti-gay marriage amendment, titled Proposition 8, which halted same-sex unions in the state. The law was later ruled unconstitutional, and in June, same-sex marriage became legal in all U.S. states.
