After years of waiting, Melissa Etheridge is now a married woman.
Congratulations to Melissa Etheridge and Linda Wallem, who just tied the knot this weekend! The singer tied the knot with fiancee Linda Wallem at San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Calif., on Saturday, May 31, a source reveals to Us Weekly.
Congratulations to Etheridge and her wife! It's been a long time coming.
Us also revealed all the adorable details of the wedding, such as the red and purple color scheme of the flowers, decorating the lily garden where the two women said “I do.” Etheridge wore a gray suit while Wallem donned a sparkly dress. The guest list included the likes of Chelsea Handler, Rosie O’Donnell and Whitney Cummings.
Etheridge announced her engagement just after the major civil rights victory marked by the repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act back in 2013. Back then, she told CNN's Ashleigh Banfield in a candid phone interview: "It is about family and I love my four kids. I called my now-fiancee. I'm looking forward to marrying my partner of three years. "I'm going to get married in the state of California. I woke [the kids] up this morning telling them the Supreme Court ruling on DOMA. . .I love everybody out there. It's a great day."
Chalk up Saturday as yet another great day then.
Etheridge and Wallem have been together for three years.
