Jared Followill, the last single member of the Kings of Leon, tied the knot over the weekend with model Martha Patterson.
According to Us Weekly, the couple said "I do" in Charlotte, Tennessee on Saturday during a "typical country wedding" where his bandmates/family members Caleb, Nathan and Matthew where in attendance.
"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."
Patterson also tweeted on Saturday, writing, "Marrying my best friend today. I'm the luckiest girl in the world."
The wedding comes five months after Jared popped the question on April 11 in Nashville.
The Followill family seems to be growing exponentially, as Jared's older brother, singer Caleb, 30, is married to Lily Aldrige (and welcomed their first child this summer), while eldest brother, drummer Nathan, 33, said "I do" in 2009 to Jessie Baylin. Cousin/lead guitarist Matthew, 28, has a one-year-old son with wife Johanna Bennett.
