Singer Melissa Etheridge marries partner Linda Wallem

Washington: Melissa Etheridge tied the knot with partner Linda Wallem at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, California recently.

A guest told a Magazine, Etheridge had especially written a brand new song, which she also sang for the `Nurse Jackie` creator for the first time, and it was a perfect ceremony which the duo had been wanting for a while.

The ceremony, which was attended by all four children of the 53-year-old singer, was graced by guests like Jane Lynch, Chelsea Handler, Rosie O`Donnell, Whitney Cummings and Peter Facinelli.

The duo, who had been friends for over a decade before they started dating in 2010, had announced their engagement last June after Supreme Court`s ruling about gay rights.
