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.

“He is crazy about her,” a source close to Jared tells Us. “He dated around before, but he knows he picked the perfect woman to settle down with.”
