The King now has a Queen.

Kings of Leon frontman Caleb Followill, 29, married model Lily Aldridge, 25, on Thursday in California, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

"It was a perfect day," says Followill.

The couple exchanged vows in an intimate ceremony with just family in attendance at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Calif., at 5:30 p.m..



The bride wore a custom made strapless Vera Wang gown with layers of chantilly and corded lace appliqué and raw edge swirling chiffon detail at the back. The groom wore a Gucci suit.



The couple, engaged since last fall, plan to have a larger party at a later date following their small, intimate ceremony, the groom's bandmate and brother Jared recently told PEOPLE.

Aldridge has already been welcomed into the Followill family with open arms. Says Jared: "We love her!"

Kings of Leon hits the road again in late May in support of their latest album, Come Around Sundown.
