Want to know what the coolest, most rocking bohemian wedding ceremony looks like? Look no further than the one singer Vanessa Carlton had on Friday. Carlton hit it big with her song "A Thousand Miles" when it came out ten years ago, and her secret wedding to John McCauley looks like it was just as big of a success!

Carlton announced the happy news on Twitter just after their romantic outdoor ceremony with a sweet and simple message: "Married this gentleman two hours ago xo," she captioned the above photo.

Her next Tweet, though, was a bigger surprise than the wedding itself—Fleetwood Mac songstress Stevie Nicks officiated the ceremony! Carlton revealed that exciting detail with a photo of the famous rock singer and the caption, "Thanks Stevie for marrying us!" Talk about really personalizing your ceremony. If the ethereal Gold Dust Woman herself was even a guest at our wedding, we'd be pretty honored!

McCauley, who is in the band Deer Tick, was clearly thrilled about their guest of honor. He posted a photo on Instagram saying, "Married! Thank you to the Honorable Reverend Stevie Nicks for doin' us the deed!!!"

Stevie Nicks aside, we have to recognize Carlton's truly lovely bohemian bridal style. Her flower crown and rustic wedding bouquet were the perfect accents to her long-sleeved wedding dress.

The joyous occasion happened two months after Carlton revealed that she and McCauley lost a baby due to an ectopic pregnancy and had to cancel part of her tour. We're thrilled to see the newlyweds' triumphant love after such a trying time.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
