Melissa Etheridge married her partner Linda Wallem on Saturday at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California. Among the celebs in attendance were Chelsea Handler, Rosie O’Donnell, Jane Lynch, Whitney Cummings, and Peter Facinelli.

Gossip Cop hears Etheridge’s four children from her previous relationships with Julie Cypher and Tammy Lynn Michaels took part in the ceremony. We’re also told the singer serenaded Wallem, who wore a shiny white dress, with a new song she wrote.

Etheridge, dressed for the nuptials in a grey suit, announced in June 2013 that she and Wallem would wed after the historic Supreme Court rulings in support of same-sex marriage. At the time, the musician tweeted, “I look forward to exercising my American civil liberties and getting fully, completely and legally married this year to my true love of over three years, Linda Wallem.”

Etheridge and Wallem were longtime friends before they started dating in 2010. Gossip Cop wishes Etheridge and Wallem many years of happiness together. Congratulations!
