Mel Gibson's daughter, Hannah, married blues and rock guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd on Saturday in California, the Shreveport Times reports.

Shepherd, 29, who is from Benton, La., proposed to Gibson, 26, on New Year's Eve 2004 in Rome, according to the newspaper.

"She is beautiful," Shreveport-based singer Maggie Warwick, who met Gibson at a concert in the town, told the Times. "She is just a young lady with a sweet personality. She is very sincere. Very mannerly. I think it is a perfect match. It is a special relationship."

Hannah is the oldest of Mel Gibson and wife Robyn's seven kids, and their only daughter.

On his official Web site, Shepherd says he had his first platinum album while he was still in high school (1995's Ledbetter Heights), which he followed with 1997's Grammy-nominated Trouble. His 1999 album Live On also earned a Grammy nod.
