When Hillary Scott started planning the details of her wedding to now-husband Chris Tyrrell, she immediately turned to one of the best names in the bridal gown business: Vera Wang. The Lady Antebellum singer approached the designer about a custom dress, and what resulted was a one-of-a-kind creation that left the bride aglow.

“Hillary was joyous, over the moon,” Wang tells PEOPLE. “And [she was] actually very enchanted with the thought of a hand-pieced, hand-engineered lace mermaid wedding gown.” In fact, the strapless dress featured all-over lace underlay, a layered tulle skirt with horsehair banding and a hand-cut corded lace applique with hand-applied crystal-and-pearl beading.

“While the dress was very tailored, the lace work was extremely feminine,” Wang explains.

Scott finished her look with an embroidered, cathedral-length mantilla veil with hand-cut Chantilly lace applique. “[She was] a contemporary vision of a traditional bride,” Wang says proudly.

Scott and Tyrrell tied the knot in upstate New York on Saturday, surrounded by family and close friends. Soon after the nuptials, the couple posted a video to Lady Antebellum’s official website, announcing their status as husband and wife. “We’re so excited to be starting our life together,” Scott says, “and we just had to let you in on the exciting news.” Tell us: What do you think of Scott’s gown?

Hilary’s dress and Chelsea Clinton’s dress are the two most beautiful I have seen in several years.

Vera needs to get off the fishtail kick and design some ORIGINAL gowns… she shouldn’t be giving her three KimK designs to anyone else. Stale.

Hillary doesn’t have the right body type for this dress and I don’t feel she pulled it off well. Also, the veil looks very old style and the dress more moderna and don’t seem to match. She’s a very beautiful woman and deserved better.

man, i always think the dresses look way better in the sketches than in real life. maybe it would have looked better if Hillary had the same figure as the model in the drawing. i mean, they know what she looks like because they’re designing the dress specifically for her … why always make the sketch models so stick thin?

She looks absolutly stunning! I am soo happy for her and Chris!
