Kings of Leon Rocker Jared Followill Marries Model Martha Patterson!
Five months after Jared Followill popped the question, the Kings of Leon bass guitarist and model Martha Patterson tied the knot in Charlotte, Tennessee, Saturday, a rep for the band tells Us Weekly.
Jared's bandmates -- brother/singer Caleb Followill, 30, brother/drummer Nathan Followill, 33, and cousin/lead guitarist Matthew Followill, 28 -- attended the rustic ceremony, which a source describes as a typical "country wedding." Jared and his bride wore Lucchese boots during their wedding.

"Today, I get married. It's the biggest step I've ever taken," Jared tweeted Saturday. "I've dreamed about this day since I was a little girl."
"Marrying my best friend today," Patterson also tweeted Saturday. "I'm the luckiest girl in the world."
Patterson began her pre-ceremony primping several days before the big event. "Just got my eyebrows threaded. Jesus Christ," she tweeted September 24. "One hundred times more painful than waxing. I'm dead."
Oklahoma-born Jared, 25, asked Patterson to be his wife at his Nashville home on April 11. He presented the model with a self-designed engagement ring featuring a 4-carat cushion-cut diamond set on a diamond-covered band.
Jared is the fourth and final member of the band to get hitched. Caleb married Victoria's Secret supermodel Lily Aldridge, 26, on May 12, 2011; they are parents to daughter Dixie Pearl, 3 months. Nathan wed singer/songwriter Jessie Baylin, 28, on November 2009; they are currently expecting their first child. Matthew and musician Johanna Bennett, 27, swapped vows in November 2009; they are parents to son Knox Cameron Patrick, 17 months.
