Huggin' and a-kissin', dancing' and a-lovin'! Kate Pierson of the B-52's married her longtime girlfriend Monica Coleman this past weekend in Hawaii, the singer herself confirmed via Facebook on Tuesday, Aug. 4.
Pierson, 67, posted a photo from the gorgeous outdoor nuptials with her new wife moments after they tied the knot. "#Itsofficial!" the singer-songwriter wrote, alongside a snap of the brides in their gowns. In the pic, Pierson wears a tulle skirt that falls to her knees with another tiered, petal pink layer on top, while Coleman looks stunning in a cream silk Victorian era-style gown. The ladies sport leis and megawatt smiles on their special day.
An overjoyed Pierson later posted another snap with Coleman at their wedding reception. "Married now! @monicanation," she wrote on Instagram, alongside a selfie. Pierson's bandmates, including Fred Schneider, were present for the nuptials.
Pierson co-founded the B-52's with Schneider, Cindy Wilson, Keith Strickland, and the late Ricky Wilson in the 1970s, and released several memorable hits throughout the next few decades including "Love Shack," "Rock Lobster," "Roam," and more.
Prior to her nuptials, Pierson posted a photo of a gorgeous Hawaiian sunset, promising her Facebook fans of a "#hawaiianwedding soon!"
She also shared a photo of her future wife this past weekend, prior to their ceremony, enjoying the sea breeze. "Monica and I are getting #marriedinHawaii !" Pierson wrote.
She and Coleman have been together since 2003, and they own several businesses together including Kate's Lazy Desert in Landers, Calif., and Kate's Lazy Meadow in the Catskill Mountains of New York. In a February 2015 interview with Spin, Pierson spoke about her personal journey of self acceptance.
"All our friends — so many friends are gay or lesbian and transgender. We’re just in that world. We all went through the devastating time of the AIDS crisis and I think that galvanized us to be more activists — AIDS activists. I think through that struggle we’ve tried to do a lot of benefits and stuff. I think the meaning of ‘gay' became more solidified," she told the mag. "One of the things the B-52s wanted to accomplish was for people to embrace their difference and encourage people to be who they are and accept themselves."
