It wasn’t the heavily hyped, hours-long event that was the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, but on Thursday, a King married his queen.
[artist id="1233888"]Kings of Leon[/artist] frontman Caleb Followill married Victoria’s Secret model Lily Aldridge early Thursday evening at an intimate ceremony held at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California. According to People magazine, the couple exchanged vows before an audience of only family members at 5:30 p.m. but have plans to celebrate their nuptials by way of a “big party” at a later date.
“It was a perfect day,” Followill said of the event.
Followill, 29, met Aldridge, 25, at the Coachella festival in Indio, California. The couple had been together for more than two years when Followill popped the question last September.
The magazine also reported that the bride wore a custom-made strapless Vera Wang gown with layers of chantilly and corded lace appliqué and raw-edge swirling chiffon detail at the back. The groom wore a Gucci suit. Followill’s brother and bandmate Nathan, who married singer Jessie Baylin in 2009, served as best man.
For the ladies keeping score at home, there is now only one eligible King on the market: Jared Followill, Caleb and Nathan’s brother.
It’s been another busy year for the Kings, following the release of their album Come Around Sundown and rock documentary “Talihina Sky.” According to their website, they head back on tour at the end of the month for a two-month sweep through Europe and return Stateside in July.
