"They had a great farm-to-table cuisine with all of their favorite things," a guest told the People magazine. "It was down home and very real. It was very much true to their style."

According to the New York Daily News, the couple has been engaged since April and they began dating in January. Patterson reportedly wore a white Monique Lhuillier gown, and Followill wore a black Gucci suit.

"Aaaaaand I'm married. Happiest man in the world," Followill tweeted late Saturday, linking to a picture of him and his bride.

"Marrying my best friend today. I'm the luckiest girl in the world. :)" Patterson also tweeted.

TV Guide noted that Followill is set to release his debut EP with his new side project, Smoke & Jackal, on October 16.
