  • Five months after Jared Followill popped the question, the Kings of Leon bass guitarist and model Martha Patterson tied the knot just outside of Nashville, Tenn., 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."

    "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."

    Prior to romancing Patterson, Jared was linked to "Twilight" actress Ashley Greene, 25, for several months in 2011. The musician was also engaged to model Alisa Torres, but they split in 2009.
