Dwight Yoakam’s team announced on Instagram that Dwight and longtime partner Emily Joyce tied the knot back in March, making sure to take safety precautions amid the coronavirus outbreak. The post explained that the intimate ceremony in Santa Monica, California adhered to the advised social distancing suggestions.
Alongside a pair of snapshots of the newlyweds on their big day, the Instagram caption read: “Dwight Yoakam and Emily Joyce were married in March just prior to the quarantine in a private ceremony at St Monica Catholic Church. At a time when there is so much uncertainty in the world, there are still happy moments.”
“In the face of shutdowns and social-distancing requirements, love prevailed, and the less than ten attendees were seated at least six feet from one another,” the post explained. “The happy couple have been engaged for several years and have been dating since 2010.”
The message explained that the “belated announcement” of their union was “withheld out of respect to so many people affected by and on the front lines of this pandemic.”
