'Idol' champ Lee DeWyze says 'I do'

"American Idol" winner Lee DeWyze is now a married man.

CNN's confirmed that the season 9 "Idol" star has married model and actress Jonna Walsh.

DeWyze's manager Brett Radin reports that the singer got hitched on Saturday in Camarillo, California, and that about 200 people attended the wedding.

Walsh is said to have worn a vintage-style, strapless Lili Bridal lace-embroidered gown for the occasion.

DeWyze first met his future wife in 2010 while shooting the video for his song "Sweet Serendipity."

They got engaged last year aboard a private yacht at Disney World.

DeWyze couldn't wait to let the world know his newly married status, tweeting, "Beautiful wedding, beautiful girl, just beautiful... We're married!" right after the ceremony.

"It was really our style of wedding," the 26-year-old told People magazine. "Outdoors with chandeliers."

According to varying reports, the couple then slipped off to Bali for their honeymoon.

    I think it's funny some of you commenting on nasty comments. How many nasty comments have you posted about others on this forum? I haven't heard anything about Lee Dwyze since he won Idol (like a majority of the winners). But I wish him and his bride the very best. Lee looks like a nice, humble dude and his bride is a beautiful woman. So the best to the newlyweds.

    . Once again, a bunch of idiots write in with misspellings,
    incorrect punctuation and grammar, and proof that the world is full of morons.

    So happy for them 🙂 Anyone who has followed Lee and Jonna know that they truly found Sweet Serendipity while they weren't looking. It's been a pleasure watching their love grow and I've enjoyed Lee's music so much these past 2 years. Looking so forward to his next album!

    I was a fan of Lee's until he started dating this girl and became her little puppet and became too annoying to follow. Oh well, as long as he's happy. I guess.

    To those who make negative comments – If you can't say something positive, don't say anything at all. Lee and Jonna are the most genuine people you will ever meet. Lee's music is awesome. He writes from his heart. I've met Lee and find him to be a beautiful person inside and out. And I know if you met him you would leave feeling the same way.

    They are such a beautiful couple and they are both very genuine, down to earth people. I started listening to Lee's music last year and now I'm very hooked. He's also very good in concert and I wish the best for both of them. I can't wait for his next album. The snippets I heard so far are awesome. Good luck in their new life together.

    I'm so happy for Lee and Jonna. They are really nice people and look awesome. I didn't know much about his music at first until my friend introduced me to it and I really love it. I wish them happiness and hope more people give Lee's music a chance. He's incredible live. We went to his show. WOW!!! He's also a very nice person.

    HUGE Congrats Lee & Jonna. This love story is a great example of a fairy tale sprinkled with sweet serendipity on top. I've never seen 2 people so in love & it's very refreshing. They both look amazing & are two of the nicest, most genuine people you ever want to meet with the biggest hearts. Lee is an extremely talented singer/songwriter who always takes times for his fans. I love the way they support each other. The world needs more people like Lee & Jonna. We can learn alot from them! @dewyzefan6 Annie S

    If all people can say are negative bitter comments...keep it to yourself. I for one and happy for this couple and wish them success. I have had a happy marriage for over 25 years. Marriage is work and it's like a roller coaster...some days good and some days you look at your spouse with thoughts of what the heck have I done? But most of the time those feelings are temporary. Best wishes for Lee and Jonna...enjoy the roller coaster ride and hang on in times of good and bad.
