At a “quirky” Texas country club, Rachel Bradshaw and Chase Lybbert exchanged vows. Check out the unique wedding tribute her father, Terry Bradshaw, sent her.
On Saturday, the daughter of former pro soccer player and FOX co-host Terry Bradshaw, who is a musician, got married to Chase Lybbert at Denton Country Club in Texas in front of 300 guests.
Rachel Bradshaw is married
The Bradshaw Bunch star, aged 35, informs PEOPLE that she will be getting married to her childhood friend. She expresses that their families share a close bond, and formalizing their relationship is an extremely special moment for all of them. The star reveals that their mothers have been trying to set them up for over a decade, and their wedding day is the best day for both families. The occasion is filled with love and warmth, making it all the more special.
The ceremony started at the historic Courthouse-on-the-Square Museum at 6:30 p.m., with the bride’s father walking her down the aisle.
“We are not doing a traditional ceremony,” Bradshaw said. “I didn’t want to deal with anything traditional. This is my second wedding, and I was like, ‘Let’s just have a big party.’ Basically a reception, but it just was way more us.” Former Tennessee Titans player Rob Bironas, who was married to Bradshaw until his unexpected passing in a car accident in 2014, was her first husband.
During the ceremony, both Terry and Chase gave speeches, and afterward, Rachel raved over how Terry paid honor to his daughter and his new son-in-law in the way that he did in his speech.
They got engaged in October of 2022, and their May 2023 honeymoon will be in Italy.
Rachel Speaks About Her Funny Engagement Disaster
As Terry unexpectedly shared the engagement news with her and her family before Chase could go down on one knee, the 37-year-old proposed way sooner than he had planned.
According to her interview with E! News in November, she recounted the moment when her father entered the room from the garage and made an announcement, “Guess what, everybody? He just asked for Rachel’s hand in marriage and I said yes!” The room fell silent and tense, causing her to feel embarrassed and mortified. She tried to explain to her father that it was a private conversation and that he shouldn’t have disclosed it to others.
Rachel recalled that Chase had been compelled to propose on the spot. “I can’t quite recall his words,” she said, “but they were incredibly endearing and the timing couldn’t have been better. However, our dad essentially ended up proposing to both of us.”
