Having been in the music business for more than 20 years, Chris and Carrie decided to play beautiful music together forever. They got married in a fantastic Irish/Yankee/Texas mashup of a wedding in Austin. The ceremony included a loving cup and a handfasting, both Irish traditions, and Chris wore a kilt. Carrie even had her dress designed to match her groom's kilt, with a wickedly unexpected peep of black trim.
