MONTECITO, Calif., June 1 (UPI) -- Singer Melissa Etheridge married girlfriend Linda Wallem on Saturday in Montecito, Calif., after about four years of dating.

The musician announced the union Sunday on Twitter with a photo of the two brides walking down the aisle.

The couple married at the San Ysidro Ranch at the foot of the Santa Ynez Mount range with all four of Etheridge's children participating.

"They were so happy," one guest said. "It was really beautiful."

As part of the ceremony, Etheridge sang a song she wrote for Wallem and had never performed previously.

"It was such a magical moment," the guest said.

The two began dating in 2010 and announced their engagement last June.
