Kara DioGuardi: Wedding Details!

Kara DioGuardi: Wedding Details!

American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi (in Vera Wang) and teacher-turned-general contractor Mike McCuddy tied the knot on Sunday (July 5) at 12:30PM in Prospect Harbor, Maine.

They exchanged vows at the United Methodist Church, across the street from her house, in front of about 30 guests.

“I feel great. What was most unbelievable about the experience was when I looked out at the church and saw all these people that were so important to me and Mike, who were there for us. It was pretty powerful. I was very emotional and I’m not somebody who breaks down and cries,” Kara tells In Touch, adding that the weather even behaved. “It’s been raining in Maine for 60 days. The only day that was nice was yesterday!”

Kara, 38, met Mike, 34, when he built the house next to hers in Maine.

    Dang only 30 guests. I thought she knew more people. But I guess it is good to keep it small. I wish them the best today and always.

    I have no idea who she is – but that is the ugliest wedding dress I have ever seen. I agree with rebekah it does look like a bed quilt.

    The bottom of the gown does look like a bed skirt, or like one of those slips that women put under their dresses in Victorian times (like in Gone with the Wind) it’s really horrible. Kara’s new hubby is handsome. They make a beautiful couple. I hope they are happy!
