Foo Fighters bassist Nate Mendel has married his longtime girlfriend Kate Jackson. The rocker and his music publicist partner made their union official on 11 October (14), according to Billboard.com.
The ceremony was held in Studio City, California at non-profit conservancy organisation Tree People, which is based at the top of Coldwater Canyon Park and looks over lush landscape.
All five of Mendel's bandmates, including frontman Dave Grohl, guitarists Pat Smear and Chris Shifflet, keyboardist Rami Jaffee and drummer Taylor Hawkins, were in attendance.
Guests were treated to music by The Good Time Boys, and Hawkins also took the stage to perform a few cover songs.
This is the second marriage for Mendel.
Foo Fighters bassist Nate Mendel is working on a solo album. Mendel, plans to launch his solo career while juggling his duties with Dave Grohl and his fellow Foo Fighters bandmates, as the group is due to release its new record, Sonic Highways, next month (Nov14).
He tells British newspaper The Sun, "I don't even know how I'm going to get through the next five months... My record comes out in March and Foo Fighters are extremely busy right now. I'll come from the Foos and get right on mine. It's going to be 24 hours a day."
Alternative rockers Sunny Day Real Estate are set to mark Record Store Day in April (14) by releasing their first new material in 14 years. Singer Jeremy Enigk, bassist Nate Mendel, drummer William Goldsmith and guitarist Dan Hoerner rose to fame in 1994 with its debut project Diary, but split just a year later (95).
They reformed in 1997 without Mendel - who had joined the Foo Fighters with Goldsmith - and released two albums in 1998 and 2000, but parted ways again in 2001, before all four members teamed up for a reunion tour in 2009.
They reportedly started working on a comeback album, but the project fell through and by 2013 they had drifted apart again.
However, the rockers have since managed to complete work on a new track and they will unveil Lipton Witch on 20 April (14) as a special seven inch record.
Lipton Witch will be their first new offering since 2000's The Rising Tide.
