Recently wrapping up a worldwide tour with Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Nicks took on the role of wedding official by joining singer Vanessa Carlton and Deer Tick frontman John McCauley as husband and wife at a private ceremony last week.
The couple, who released a duet “In Our Time” earlier this year, tied the knot on Friday just weeks before Deer Tick is scheduled to head out on a lengthy European tour.
Tweeting after the ceremony, Carlton posted a photo from the wedding with the caption “Thanks Stevie for marrying us!” McCauley followed with several Instagram photos of the ceremony, including one of Nicks, who he labels a “badass reverend,” filling out the couple’s marriage paperwork. “Here is Stevie Nicks doing my marriage paperwork. It’s a misdemeanor in the state of Arizona if she messes it up. She’s a badass reverend. It was an awesome ceremony. Thank you Stevie! And thank you all for the good wishes!”
According to McCauley, he and Carlton met through a mutual friend, My Morning Jacket drummer Patrick Hallahan. “We met through Patrick Hallahan, from My Morning Jacket,” McCauley said, “He introduced us after I went on Vanessa’s Twitter and said, ‘Hey, VC let’s get a beer.’ I had just figured out how to use Twitter so I was really proud of myself.” (via Billboard).
Nicks and Carlton have been friends for many years, even collaborating on tracks like Carlton’s “The One.” Here’s hoping that both Carlton and McCauley have finally found the one in each other.
