Check out the first official photo from Kings of Leon rocker Jared Followill‘s wedding to model Martha Patterson.

The 25-year-old bass guitarist tied the knot with Martha, 21, in a private ceremony on Saturday (September 29) in Charlotte, Tenn.

The reception featured a beautiful firework display and a five-tier strawberry cream cake, sources tell The couple worked with event planner Sharon Sacks, who helped plan Jared‘s brother Caleb Followill‘s wedding to Lily Aldridge.

The groom sat next to his BFF, entrepreneur Douglas Chabbott, and Mona frontman Nick Brown. The bride and her mother danced to the Carrie Underwood song “Mama’s Song” during the evening. One of the highlights of the reception was when guests danced to the “Copperhead Road” line dance.

    Hahahahhaha, he’s not even looking at her, he’s probably looking at his real loves Doug and Nick.

  • Jenn

    He looks really handsome! Her head kind of looks like its photoshopped onto her body lol….still pretty though :)

    3 years, tops.


    WELL i think there a CUTE couple!!! her dress is lovely and i like that she looks natural and not wearing over the top jewellry and makeup….he’s gorgeous as always. now all the KINGS are married :(

  • an opinion

    Wedding dress looks like it is falling off.

  • Lauren

    She’s not beautiful enough to pull off that simple. She’s not Lily! It looks like she just threw that on and didn’t even bother with her hair or makeup. Blah.

  • Helen

    She is nothing comparing to Anne Hathaway

  • Creed

    lmao she is really ugly though..

  • kate

    Wow. cute. they’re young. These guys get married. lol. maybe them being southern and all, they probably have traditional values. Congrats to them. Love the party favors idea.

  • Creed

    I bet Lilly looked like a Goddess sitting next to her. also her dress is kinda ugly and tailored incorrectly

  • rachel


  • Fei

    Groom prettier than the bride. She’s nothing like jessie and lily.

  • TexasLady

    Ha ha ha, it’s so sad to see all of you little girls bullying Jared and Martha! You have NO IDEA the kind of person she is or you would never say such things. Sounds like none of you have ever been in a true love relationship. When you know, you know, it’s pretty simple! She is not trying to be like Lily. That is the label you have attached to her, why can’t you just be happy for them? You ladies ( and I use that term loosely), should know they are not looking for your approval. You all band together, regurgitate your bullying ways, and think it’s ok because people laugh with you and agree. It doesn’t make it right, just ignorant. Funny thing is she goes home tonight with him, to their home, and you will be the last thing on their minds. Sad to see you are so shallow that you can not even give Jared credit. If you “love” him so much, why wouldn’t you trust him to make such an important decision?

  • hayley

    WOAH! she has is 21 and is already rocking the Kate Upton boobs if it wasn’t for that gown they would problably reach her knees.

  • :]

    congrats to her.
    she’s getting paid.
    her face just screams ‘oh yeah im in there now’

  • kellie

    TexasLady, I am going to take a wild guess and say that you were a guest at Jared and Martha’s wedding? Am I right? If they don’t care about our approval than they and their friend/family need to not worry about what some of the fans think or say about them. Fans our going to have their opinion whether Jared, Martha, or you like it or not. That’s just how it is.

  • lala

    she is beautiful…very girl next door face with killer body…i would never compare her to lily-she looks like a thrown up fish.

  • lizzie

    Congrats to them. Her dress is really pretty, I feel like I just want to pull it up a bit though! I’m not sure who she is really, I’ve never seen any of her’ modelling’ work and I work in fashion, but good luck to them, shes married her best friend, lucky he’s a rich rockstar too.

  • Iris

    They look like brother & sister.

  • coco

    She looks like a young version of Jennifer Aniston, doesn’t she?

  • houstonguy


    Thanks for saying that, I’m martha’s cousin. She’s a really brilliant person, friendly, smart, nice. It’s rather scary reading some of these comments.

  • miko

    I think she is pretty and simple.

  • kel

    Congrats to them! They look great and happy!

  • anonymous

    It won’t last forever, not at that age, but probably for three or so years. They will have some good times in the meantime.

  • mlllllllllllle

    WHAT ?!
    Okay enough of weddings now, A NEW RECORD PLEASE !
    I can’t take it no more !

  • Emma

    The only reason why she’s getting all the hate is because she started off on the wrong foot with the fans. The usual jabs from fans is something all of the boys wives went through except they didn’t respond back to it maliciously like Martha. As kellie said people are going to have an opinion whether you like it or not. There’s no point in bashing someone for having an opinion, no one is universally liked or disliked here – so just get used it!

  • Lola

    LOL! now all of Martha’s people are going to come to this site to talk about how great she is. Classy.

  • Alexandra

    I think it’s really silly how Martha’s friends or family members react to these comments. Everyone will have a certain opinion on her. She is handeling this relationship completely different than Jessie or Lily or anyone else involved in KOL. It has nothing to do with jealousy or “bullying”. No one is rude to Lily, right? And why? Because she is keeping enough things to herself. She is gorgeous but seems down to earth. It doesnt seem like she tries to MAKE everyone jealous by being married to a “rockstar”. If Martha would have handeled things differently, people might like her. She is pretty, and I bet she is nice, but she is not behaving in the best way towards KOL fans. Comments here are a result of her twitter comments and everything. It’s not bullying if you say your opinion. ( I understand that insults are bullying, but people who call her bad names are pathetic anyway,..)

  • wyatt

    after seeing anne hathaway’s dress, coming here is like going from haute couture to tacky couture even though if its monique lhuillier.

  • TexasLady

    Martha has always been “out there” with her life in pictures and comments via social media for the last 8 years I have known her. If you had seen her Facebook page you would know she has always been very funny, sarcastic, and loyal to her friends and family to a fault. You all think she is just trying to rub your nose in it, but like I said she has always worn her heart on her sleeve when it comes to her friends. She was always tall, pretty, super skinny, and she eats like there is no tomorrow. That is her body type. She has always talked about having lots of kids, loves babies. It s no surprise to anyone that knows her personally that she is marrying young and settling down. It is and has always been her way, family and friends first.

  • Rach

    I’m sure she’s a lovely girl, but Martha hasn’t come across well, it’s all about perception and the publics of her hasn’t been good. She hasnt conducted herself well on twitter on occasions. I hesitate in comparing them, but Lily did have a career prior to Caleb, granted it was boosted by her relationship, but it was there. She’s been modelling for a long time, she grew up in a connected family.
    I’m not sure but it seems to me that people’s problems with Martha are related to the fact that she seemingly doesn’t have her own career, isn’t stand alone and looks like she’s latched onto the first good-looking rich guy who will have her, even if it’s not the case.

  • maria

    Why is all this people against this girl?
    Just because she’s young and pretty and she’s getting the boy everybody’s a fan of, she is now getting all this stupid criticism.. It’s all jealousy, as always, as with Blake Lively.. The only sin of these girls is being young and beautiful and getting the hot guy everyone’s jealous of.
    Seriously people, find a better occupation in life than just coming here and insulting other people for free.
    ps: I’m not Martha’s family or anything, I’m just a person of common sense from Europe.

  • Lorelei

    What is the rush in getting married at such a young age…??? She is barely legit to have a drink in public? I don’t feel them.

  • maria

    With this I can for sure agree. They’re so young..
    Saying that it’s rushed it’s ok, it’s your opinion and you’re more than welcome to tell it.
    But why does people have to become so violent and throwing hate on this person just because, as I was saying earlier, she’s young, pretty and she’s getting the boy?

  • marlena

    jared, good luck, you’re gonna need this during your divorce. soon.

  • Sade

    I love her dress, but I’m not so fond of the picture that was released of the two. It looks so staged. I mean, come on – you just got married. It shouldn’t be too hard to show some real emotions?! Lily’s and Caleb’s picture was so real. I wish their picture would show them closer together. This is Martha in the limelight while Jared is probably watching his guest goofing off. Weird.

  • maria

    Sorry, but that dress looks like a bustier. She is a pretty girl, but this is not her best. Looks like she didn’t do a thing to her hair, and threw on this bustier and walked out the door. Geez. It’s your wedding day, hun. You could make a bit of an effort. And I say this, cause she could have looked SO much better!

  • KAY blood

    The wedding dress is not attractive. Oh well, it’s her dress, not mine.

  • CloserToKOL



  • Alexandra

    It’s really pathetic that friends or family of her discuss with fans over here. A fanbase has every right to judge on words and actions and to discuss certain topics. If people who supported this band and the members for YEARS don’t like the way Martha acts towards them, or think the marriage is too young, or don’t think the dress looks good, it’s their opinion. No one says she is a horrible person, but people judge based on what they read on twitter. If I was related to her, the last thing I would do is to get into discussions with FANS and provoke them even more and make the whole situation look even sillier.

  • Alexandra

    @maria: Just because people don’t like a certain person doesn’t mean they are jealous. They just don’t like them, for whatever reasons. It’s not common sense what you’re talking about, because it’s absolutely immature to say that disliking equals jealousy.

  • Losa

    She looks older than 21. And my hair and my face without makeup look much more better when I wake up in the morning than hers in her wedding day.

  • maria2

    They look a bit like brother and sister, actually. I do wish them well. I totally have no problem with their age. Good for them, for knowing a good thing when they have it, and not letting it go. I’m kind of sick of this generation for thinking they need to sleep with a hundred people to make sure they love someone enough to finally make a commitment. I say good for them!

  • Lina

    Hey, Marha’s family and friends, since you’re here, why don’t you enjoy the opportunity to show us her work as a model? Show us something!

  • kat

    that dress looks like it came from david’s bridal. or that tacky ‘pnina tornee’ shit on say yes to the dress. ugh. not classy.

    and yeah, no way in hell this will last. she just looks like a golddigger.

    and i don’t believe for a second that she’s 21.

  • Brit

    Is she really a model? I’ve not seen any of her work online, print or otherwise and I agree about the top of the dress looking like a bustier and usually adore MONIQUE LHUILLIER.

    @kat: Good thing it’s her wedding dress, not yours! & Even if it was from David’s Bridal, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. A wedding dress is about the girl who wears it & how she wears it, not how much money it cost.

  • C

    Also, even though I am not family or a friend, I’d like to take the opportunity to prove you catty girls wrong. Go to, scroll through “Talents” and you will see her. I have friends who model, & just because you do not see a girl in high profile campaigns does not mean that they are not a working model.

  • maria

    I say it’s jealousy because I saw a lot of criticism lately towards more than one person who all have in common the facts that they are beautiful young girls who just got a guy everybody likes (as for Blake Lively)..
    I personally don’t follow the band, or her as a model, I’m from Italy and they’re not very well known.. I’m just reading these comments and they seem exaggerate, it seems like people is just throwing shit on these girls as if they are jealous.. I mean, this Martha may be a little snob, but it doesn’t mean she’s not a good person and anyway everybody in the starsystem is snob..
    it’s a classic
