Gene Simmons' wedding to Shannon Tweed is a done deal!

Gene Simmons' wedding to Shannon Tweed is a done deal

Gene Simmons' wedding to Shannon Tweed finally happened Saturday, with the two tying the knot after 28 years together. The KISS frontman and the former Playboy model got married in a luxe wedding ceremony in Beverly Hills, surrounded by hundreds of friends and a camera crew.

The evening nuptials took place on the Beverly Hills Hotel's crystal lawn, where Tweed walked down the aisle wearing an ivory Priscilla of Boston gown with a bouquet of ivory garden roses, People reports.
Simmons, 62, and Tweed, 54, wrote their own vows, and many of the 400 guests cheered when Simmons finally said, "I do."

The star studded guest list included the couple's children Nick, 22, and Sophie, 19, plus Hugh Hefner, Bill Maher and of course fellow KISS member Paul Stanley, who was a member of the wedding party. Maid of honor Sophie reportedly serenaded the couple with "At Last" for their first dance, US Magazine said. How fitting.

Simmons shocked fans in July when he proposed to Tweed on A&E's "Gene Simmons Family Jewels." Before going down on one knee and popping the question, the singer and bass player -- who'd vowed he would never marry -- told Tweed, "I come with so much baggage, you're the only friend I've got. You are the only one I've ever loved."

Soon the whole family was in on the planning. Nick designed the wedding invitations, while Sophie wrote the message, "After 28 years of loose strings, our parents have finally decided to tie the knot. Our mother will share our horrendous hyphenate of a last name and our father's life ... well, it doesn't change that much."

Fans are invited to be a part of the celebration too, when it airs Oct. 18 on the new season of "Gene Simmons Family Jewels."

Gene Simmons, Shannon Tweed set wedding date after 28 years

Shannon Tweed and Gene Simmons are getting married

Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed have a date to get married -- finally. The KISS singer and the former Playmate have been together for 28 years and have two children.

Invitations to the Oct. 1 wedding, sent out under the kids' names, contain art by Nick, 22, and a nontraditional message from Sophie, 18: "After 28 years of loose strings, our parents have finally decided to tie the knot."

"Our mother will share our horrendous hyphenate of a last name and our father's life ... well, it doesn't change that much."

The invite isn't all rock-star bravado, however. Teasing to the formation of "Team Tweed-Simmons," it continues: "We will be united as a family in title and spirit forever."

Simmons is 62 and still touring with Paul Stanley and the current incarnation of KISS; Tweed is 54.

Simmons' proposal in Belize was naturally captured by reality-TV cameras for A&E's show "Gene Simmons: Family Jewels," which rolls its seventh season starting Oct. 4.

So much for Simmons' "happily unmarried" lifestyle. Makes it look like Poison frontman Bret Michaels, after 16 years and two kids, practically rushed into things with Kristi Gibson, no?

Kristen stewart joan jett the runaways Yesterday I told you about Cherie Currie's impression of Dakota Fanning, who portrays the singer in director Floria Sigismondi's "The Runaways." So how does Kristen Stewart's Runaway stack up in the eyes of her real-life counterpart Joan Jett?

The rocker said she's pleased -- and with more than just the haircut.

"I thought she had a quiet intensity," Jett said at a Sundance round table discussion in support of the film. "The physical stuff ... just the way we move in space. We shake our legs, our hands are all over."

And those signature moves? "She just studied me, man."
