GREENSBORO, Ga. - Country music star Carrie Underwood and Ottawa Senators forward Mike Fisher were married at a luxury resort in Georgia late Saturday afternoon, according to a People magazine report.

Underwood, 27, and Fisher, 30, tied the knot before 250 friends and family in a ceremony featuring classical music and the couple's favourite Bible readings, the magazine reported on its website.

"We could not feel more blessed to have found each other and to have shared this day with our friends and family that mean so much to us," the couple told People magazine in a statement, signing their names "Mike & Carrie Fisher."

Mike Fisher has said on his website that his bride would legally change her last name, but would still be known professionally as Carrie Underwood.

The couple were engaged on Dec. 20 after dating for about a year.

Underwood told People in March that the pair planned to keep homes in Nashville and in Peterborough, Ont.
