Runaway June’s Jennifer Wayne gets Married!
Jennifer Wayne and Austin Moody are married! The “We Were Rich” singer — who is one-third of the band Runaway June — and the singer-songwriter tied the knot in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, on Saturday, less than two weeks after their engagement. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Wayne, 38, and Moody, 29, opted to have a “very small” wedding ceremony on the beach with less than 20 guests, inviting only their immediate family and best friends. In early 2020, Wayne went through her own battle with COVID-19. “We are taking COVID very seriously and have requested that all of the guests receive a recent COVID test before attending,” the couple told PEOPLE ahead of their big day. “We are having the ceremony outdoors with plenty of room to social distance.” When the pandemic calms down, Wayne said they want to have “a big party in Nashville” to celebrate with all of their friends and family.
