Carrie Underwood marries Mike Fisher in Georgia

Carrie Underwood married Mike Fisher, a player for the Ottawa Senators hockey team, on Saturday in Georgia before 250 friends and family, reports say.

"We could not feel more blessed to have found each other and to have shared this day with our friends and family that mean so much to us!" Underwood, 27 and Fisher, 30, told People magazine in a statement, signing their names "Mike & Carrie Fisher."

The two had met at one of her concerts in Ottawa. Fisher proposed to Underwood in December after dating for more than a year. They were married under a tent at the upscale Ritz-Carlton resort in Reynolds Plantation in Greensboro, and the ceremony featuring classical music and the couple's favorite Bible readings, the magazine said.

The country singer and former American Idol winner wore a Chantilly lace dress by Monique Lhuillier, who also designed the bridesmaids dresses, People said.

It was reported earlier that some of the guests at Underwood and Fisher's wedding included country superstar couple Faith Hilll and Tim McGraw, as well as Underwoods former American Idol judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson.

However, many guests were not told where precisely the wedding would take place until they boarded flights to Georgia, CMT said, adding that the resort was booked exclusively for activities leading up to ceremony.

Underwood gave Fisher a very public shout-out in the liner notes of her album, Play On, which was released in November. They read: "Thank you (No.) 12 (referring to his jersey number.) You are the most amazing addition to my life! You are such a wonderful person and have had such an amazing hand in the building of this album and in the growth of me as a person. I love you so much! You make my life better in every way!"

Actress Emily Blunt and actor John Krasinski of the NBC comedy series The Office also got married on Saturday, as did actor and comedian Martin Lawrence and longtime girlfriend Shamicka Gibbs.
