Congrats are in order for Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney, who married Emily Ward Saturday (Sept. 15) at their home in Nashville.

Spinner reports that the couple were joined by approximately 350 guests for the backyard ceremony, which was officiated by former Saturday Night Live comedian Will Forte.

Ward wore a white Carolina Herrera dress while walking the aisle to the sounds of the Tommy James classic, ‘Crimson and Clover.’ Carney, sporting a white tuxedo jacket, was accompanied down the aisle by the couple’s Irish wolfhound Charlotte.

Carney’s brothers, Will Carney and Barry Stormer, were both part of the wedding party. Dan Auerbach, Carney’s singing and guitar playing cohort in Black Keys, was also one of the guests at the wedding.

Though the band are still having great success with their ‘El Camino’ album, Carney revealed earlier this year that they planned to spend some time in the studio in July, and while there’s been no reports of them finishing the release, the drummer felt it would give them a nice start to a potential album for 2013.
