“American Idol” Winner Lee DeWyze Ties the Knot

Lee DeWyze — the former paint shop employee who sang his way to victory on American Idol in 2011 — wed model/actress Jonna Walsh in a ceremony in Camarillo, California over the weekend.

The couple exchanged vows Saturday before about 100 guests in what the pair described as a vintage event. Tables at the reception were decorated with vintage Coca-Cola crates.

“It was really our style of wedding,” DeWyze, 26, told People magazine. “Outdoors with chandeliers.”

The bride added:

“We also had vintage movie reels since I’m an actress. And sheets of music that were rolled up and put in jars.”

The couple met in October 2010, on the set of the video for DeWyze’s single “Sweet Serendipity.” The enjoyed their first date at a Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls game. The bride recalls:

“When he took me home that night I called my mom and told her that I was going to marry him. I could feel it in my heart.”

The newlyweds will honeymoon in Bali.
