"Messages of congratulations soon flowed in from the pop community.Katy Perry and Taylor Swift were among the first to send their best., Gilbert revealed how making music actually strengthened their partnership."It made things better for us, you know what I'm saying?
Not to mention the fact that two founding members, Josh and Zac Farro, quit the band in a blogspot-ready huff just before Christmas 2010. "@yelyahwilliams @XChadball X yessssss congrats you two!!!! Pete Wentz also sent her congratulations via Twitter, writing, "@yelyahwilliams @XChadball X congrats guys !!!"Personally, Hayley and I, we'd been dating for six years, and we hit a rough patch in our relationship, and it was great, being able to get that out in these songs," he said at the time.Williams shared the good news with her Twitter followers.She posted a photoshopped snap of the happy couple as they might look on their wedding day, along with caption, "Hey guess what?Several eyewitnesses and fans posted on social media adorable photos from their wedding ceremony and the reception.The bride and groom are seen exchanging vows in front of about 50 people inside the theater.Williams, 27, had been dating Gilbert, 34, for eight years, and the two had been engaged since December 2014. “At least now, if anything, we have an excuse,” Hayley Williams said over the phone from Los Angeles, where Paramore still had some business to take care of before playing Austin’s South By Southwest.That's another thing, what the songs of are about: Looking at the challenges not as negative things but to really take them in a way that tests your value as a person."Hayley, who recently accepted the 2014 Billboard Women in Music honor for Trailblazer of the Year, has yet to announce her wedding date.The Paramore split became bitter on Tuesday night when co-founders and brothers Josh and Zac Farrofired off a fiery blog post that explicitly contradicts the statement issued by the band over the weekend, which read in part: "We want Josh and Zac to do something that makes them happy and if that isn't here with us, then we support them finding happiness elsewhere."
