  • Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney's Nashville nuptials to girlfriend Emily Ward were extra special, thanks to the creative couple's personal, down-home touches.

    On Saturday, Carney, 32, and Ward tied the knot at their home in Nashville in front of 350 guests, a rep for the rocker confirms to Us Weekly.

    "Saturday Night Live" star Will Forte was on hand to officiate the backyard ceremony. For her trip down the aisle, Ward donned a lacy, cap-sleeve Carolina Herrera gown, and walked toward her groom to Tommy James & the Shondells' "Crimson and Clover." (The pair's Irish wolfhound, Charlotte, accompanied Carney during his walk to the altar.)

    Carney's bandmate Dan Auerbach was in attendance, and the musician's brothers, Will and Michael Carney and Barry Stormer, along with Ward's siblings, comprised the wedding party.

    This is the second marriage for the Akron, Ohio, native. He divorced writer Denise Grollmus in 2009.

    Carney proposed to Ward in Los Angeles in 2011 just a few hours before he was set to attend the Grammy awards.
