The publication reported the sweet wedding was held within its grounds on Saturday.

The couple recently purchased the Georgia pad, which they are now renovating.

Designer and carpenter Ty’s latest social media post of a romantic Florida sunset alluded to his newlywed happiness.

In the caption, he wrote: “So much to be thankful for ✨ Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!”

One fan then replied: “You got married! Mazel Tov!” before one posted: “Congrats!!!!”

It comes after the HGTV personality popped the question in July, proposing with a stunning teardrop-shaped ring.

SWEET PROPOSAL

He then told his Instagram followers: “It’s the ‘yes’ for me…”

Ty’s rep then confirmed that he proposed to Kellee on the dock of his Palm Coast home in Florida while they had a morning coffee together.

The couple were inundated with messages of congratulations since Ty revealed his happy news.

HGTV’s interiors expert Taniya Nayak commented: “Wooohoooo! Smart move!! She’s a keeper! Congrats you two lovebirds!”

Fellow star Carrie Lockyn, meanwhile, wrote: “Congratulations! Yay for love.”

ONE NOTABLE CAREER

Ty began his showbiz career as a carpenter on TLC’s Trading Spaces in the early 2000s, eventually going on to host Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.

Earlier this year, Ty was seen helping families struggling to make their homes work after experiencing changes in their lives for the show, Ty Breaker.

The TV star is said to have met Kelle in 2010 while filming a show in Toronto.

The duo apparently kept in touch through mutual friends before reconnecting in 2020, even deciding to spend lockdown together.

As news of their engagement broke, Ty said “I never thought I would get married, but she changed that. Glad I waited for the one.”
