The bassist, 62, proposed to his Playboy Playmate girlfriend, 54, with a 24-carat diamond on the finale of the couple's reality series in July. The duo have been together for 28 years and have two children together: Nick, 22, and Sophie, 19, who served as Maid of Honor at her parents' wedding and sang Etta James' "At Last" for their first dance.

"It is time for me to grow up. I'm 62. I've been doing a lot of wacky stuff for an awfully long time…and there's nobody I've ever said 'I love you' to," Simmons reasoned to Entertainment Tonight before saying "I do." "I even find it difficult to say 'I love you' to my mother. But I love Shannon with all my heart and all my soul, and always will."
