Huge congrats to B-52s legend Kate Pierson on her awesome wedding!
Amidst all the depressing Hollywood divorce news this week, we have some happy marriage news! B-52s singer, Kate Pierson married her long time love this past weekend in Hawaii, and we are loving the love — and the photos!
For those of you who don’t know much about Pierson, she’s a total music pioneer. Aside from being one of the lead singers of the B-52s, she’s collaborated with other rock gods like The Ramones, Iggy Pop, R.E.M. and Blondie. Pierson also owns two of the coolest themed airstream motels — Kate’s Lazy Meadow in Mount Tremper, New York and Kate’s Lazy Desert in Landers, California. Seriously, check them out — they’re rad.
Ok, back to the wedding. The 67-year-old “Love Shack” singer and her new wife, Monica Coleman, had an outdoor ceremony (because it’s Hawaii, so duh) full of friends and family. Pierson wore a stunning Victorian-style pink dress, along with a floral crown, while Coleman wore a gold gown — both with leis around their necks (because Hawaii again). Pierson posted a few gorgeous photos of her and her new wife on her Facebook page with the hashtag #itsofficial.
According to E! News, Sia was in attendance and performed a song she wrote for the newlyweds called “Crush Me With You Love,” which is on Pierson’s first solo album Guitars and Microphones, and was accompanied by Hawaiian music group, the Lim Family. All of this sounds so magical and tropical, and we’re pretty bummed we weren’t invited — but guess what? The B-52s are on tour (they’ve been a band for almost 40 years, you guys — woah)! So, we’ll settle for that. We’ll also settle for this song on repeat.
Here are the pretty pics Pierson posted:
