"Jesus at the center of it all," Israel Houghton captioned the photo of his wedding to singer and actress Adrienne Bailon.  

The couple wed in France on Nov. 11, after a three-month engagement.  

"My heart is absolutely full to overflowing. I've never experienced such a love, and I never will again. If grace only worked for people who deserved it , THIS picture would not exist. Grace cannot be achieved, it must be received. And I have received God's grace in immeasurable ways in the form of my wife, my soulmate, my present and my future. Por Siempre y Siempre#HappilyEverHoughton," Houghton posted to Instagram.  

Houghton's had a busy year: He left his position as worship leader at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church, divorced his wife, and married Bailon. 

His band, Israel and New Breed, has been performing around the world.

Houghton proposed to Bailon in August. 

"I have seen and felt the essence of Gods (sic) grace through the life, the kindness and the courage of this woman," Houghton posted to Instagram. 

"I've seen her attacked, lied about, wrongfully accused, mocked, laughed at, and misunderstood. But, I've also seen the shining example of the eagle she is that rises above the cacophony of the noise of ignorants- I'm learning from her example. She loves Jesus. She loves her family. She loves people. Even the ones that don't love her back. I pray God give me that same grace in my life. I've taken a giant leap of faith in asking her to share life with me forever and to give me a shot at getting it right this time... She has graciously granted my request... She said yes. Thanks Be To God. Thank you@adriennebailon for graciously loving me." 

Bailon posted a quick clip of her sparkler shining bright under the twinkling lights of the Eiffel Tower.  

"You. Me. Oui," read her post.  

The couple has been dating at least since March, not even a month after Houghton told social media followers he "failed and sinned" in his marriage.
