The "Bring Me Some Water" singer was kind enough to share a glimpse of her special day with the world via Twitter on Sunday when she shared a picture of herself with her beautiful bride walking up the aisle. She captioned the candid snapshot, "True blessed. By the power invested in me by the state of California."

Etheridge also decided to share a picture of her feet saying, "A gorgeous, perfect, beautiful day to get married."

Their wedding was truly the perfect ending to the happy couple's blossoming romance. The pair were friends for more than 10 years before their friendship turned romantic in 2010. Then, when the U.S. Supreme Court deemed the Defense of Marriage Act unconstitutional, the pair announced their engagement last June.

So who attended the intimate affair?

According to the Daily Mail, there was a sprinkling of famous faces, including Chelsea Handler, Glee's Jane Lynch, Rosie O'Donnell and Whitney Cummings as well as Etheridge's four children from previous relationships: Bailey Jean Cypher, 17, Beckett Cypher, 15, and twins Miller Steven Etheridge and Johnnie Rose Etheridge, 7.

Congratulations to the happy couple. We wish them all the happiness in their future together.
