For Goo Goo Dolls front man John Rzeznik planning his wedding day was a piece of cake. The rocker married longtime girlfriend, Melina Gallo, Friday night at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, he confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.
"We've been together a while and I'm not going anywhere and we'd like to start a family. I'd prefer to be married when I have kids," Rzeznik, 48, told PEOPLE.
Episcopal priest and longtime friend Rev. Michael Ralph married the couple under an old oak tree in front of about 120 guests, which included Rzeznik's bandmates. "The whole thing was just about family and friends. It was really beautiful and romantic," said Rzeznik.
