A rep for Phillips shared the happy news with People magazine.

Phillip Phillips met Hannah Blackwell 11 years ago at a charity event.

"I'm so excited," he says of new wife Hannah Blackwell. "What I love most about her is she's my best friend and I can tell her anything. I just love her."

"I feel like when I met Phillip, he was the answer to so many questions that I had. He just makes everything make sense for me," Blackwell says.

It was only a few weeks ago that Hannah Blackwell thanked her best girlfriends who celebrated her last days as a single woman.

"Forever. Love these girls who drove hours and hours to celebrate my upcoming nuptials," she captioned the fun photo.
