Malibu, CA, United States (4E) – Goo Goo Dolls front man John Rzeznik has tied the knot with long time girlfriend Melina Gallo in a private ceremony at the Calamigos Ranch in Malibu on Friday.
The 48-year-old singer exchanged vows with his lady love in front of around 120 guests “The whole thing was just about family and friends,” he told People. “It was really beautiful and romantic.”
Despite the groom’s musical inclination, Rzeznik did not serenade his bride at their wedding. He said, “We made it perfectly clear that I would not be singing at all at our wedding. Our song was Adele’s ‘Make You Feel My Love.’ I love her version of that song.”
Rzeznik, who split from his first wife in 1997, started dating Gallo in 2005 and they have no kids together. “We’ve been together a while and I’m not going anywhere and we’d like to start a family,” Rzeznik said. “I’d prefer to be married when I have kids.”
Meanwhile, the Goo Goo Dolls are on tour promoting their 10th album, “Magnetic.”
