Michelle Branch Marries the Black Keys’ Patrick Carney
Michelle Branch is a married woman! The singer-songwriter and her fiance, Black Keys member Patrick Carney, tied the knot on Saturday (April 20), in New Orleans.
Branch and Carney's wedding took place at New Orleans' Marigny Opera House, People reports. Close friends and family — including Branch's 13-year-old daughter, Owen, and the couple's 7-month-old son, Rhys, as well as well as celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern and photographer Brian Bowen Smith — were in attendance.
Branch's dress was designed by Temperley London, and Carney's tuxedo came from Burberry. The Symphony Chorus of New Orleans performed the classic song "I Can't Help Falling in Love With You" as Branch walked down the aisle.
Branch and Carney first met in 2015, at a Grammy Awards party. They co-produced her album Hopeless Romantic, and a relationship blossomed. The couple moved in together in Nashville in June of 2016, and Carney proposed on July 2, 2017, Branch's 34th birthday.
“I’d never had someone who was that supportive,” Branch says of her now-husband. “He’s an amazing, amazing human. We both just jumped in with both feet.”
Both Branch and Carney have been married previously: Branch married musician Teddy Landau in 2004, and the couple split in 2014, after Branch gave birth to Owen in 2005. Carney, meanwhile, married Denise Grollmus in 2007 and divorced her in 2009; he then married Emily Ward in 2012, and divorced her in early 2016.
