Jared Followill Ties The Knot

Kings of Leon bassist Jared Followill married his girlfriend Martha Patterson over the weekend at a ceremony in Charlotte, Tennessee. The rocker and model were flanked by Jared's bandmates-brothers Caleb and Nathan and his cousin Matthew.

The pair both hit Twitter to share their thoughts on the big day with Patterson writing:

"Today, I get married. It's the biggest step I've ever taken. I've dreamed about this day since I was a little girl," and later adding: "Marrying my best friend today. I'm the luckiest girl in the world."

Jared later followed suit, tweeting pictures of the wedding and saying "Aaaaaand I'm married. Happiest man in the world."

The wedding comes at a busy time for Jared, who recently connected with Nick Brown of the band Mona to form a new side project called Smoke & Jackal. Their debut release, EP1, is due this month.
