Patrick Carney, Michelle Branch Wed In New Orleans


Patrick Carney of the Black Keys and singer-songwriter Michelle Branch got married on Saturday.

The pair tied the knot in front of family members and close friends at the Marigny Opera House in New Orleans, according to The Associated Press.

"What a dream," Branch wrote on Instagram. "Thank you to all of our incredible friends and family for helping us celebrate. We were told we drank an unprecedented 19 liters of tequila last night. Feeling the love."

Carney and Branch were engaged on her 34th birthday in July 2017 and welcomed son Rhys last August. They reportedly fell in love two years earlier while working together on her album Hopeless Romantic.

Branch has a 13-year-old daughter from her marriage to musician Teddy Landau.

According to reports, the bride walked down the aisle in a Temperley London gown to the Symphony Chorus of New Orleans singing “Can’t Help Falling In Love.”

Carney, 39, wore a Burberry suit. It is his third marriage – he was with Denise Grollmus from 2007 to 2009 and Emily Ward from 2012 to 2016.

The Black Keys will be on tour later this year, with stops in Toronto on Oct. 9 and Nov.  24 in Vancouver.
