Katharine McPhee Speaks on Wedding

by at . Comments
Married!Months of performing on American Idol couldn't prepare Katharine McPhee for the stage of her wedding to Nick Cokas.

"I was so emotional and moved by the whole thing," said McPhee in People's February 18 issue.

As the fifth season runner-up explained, she was trying hard to control herself. But it was a difficult task when faced with such an occasion.

"I had been holding onto my dad, trying not to cry," McPhee saidadding her father Daniel was "happy" to give her away.  "Then the doors opened, and I was blown away."

McPhee and Cokas - who had been dating for two years before he popped the question last spring - exchanged vows in front of 305 guests. But the 42-year-old groom only noticed his beautiful bride.

"Her beauty and the beauty of the moment exceeded anything I could have ever dreamed of," Cokas said.  "It was incredible."
