MELISSA Etheridge is a married woman.
The country music star and partner Linda Wallem married on Saturday night at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California.
“They were so happy,” says a guest. “It was really beautiful.”
During the ceremony, Etheridge sang Wallem a new song she wrote especially for her and which Etheridge had never performed before – not even to Wallem.
“It was such a magical moment,” says the guest, who added that Etheridge wore a grey suit, while Wallem was in a white dress.
All four of Etheridge’s children participated in the wedding: Bailey Jean Cypher, 17; Beckett Cypher, 15; and twins Miller Steven Etheridge and Johnnie Rose Etheridge, 7, People magazine reports.
“The ceremony was such a beautiful start to the night,” says the guest. “The setting was perfect. It was something Melissa and Linda wanted early on. It was as perfect as they envisioned.”
