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.
