The weekend especially rocked for drummer Matt Sorum, who wed Adriane “Ace” Harper on Saturday in Palm Springs, Calif., his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Friends and family, including Jane Lynch, Gilby Clarke, Duff McKagan, Billy Idol, Juliette Lewis and Gina Gershon, looked on as the former Guns N’ Roses rocker and Velvet Revolver drummer, 52, exchanged vows with Harper, 29, a singer and dancer, at the Colony Palms Hotel.

On the menu for the newlyweds? A family-style meal that included salad, macaroni and cheese, goat cheese ravioli, fish and risotto. It was dinner and a show for their guests, who watched water performers entertain from a pool as they enjoyed their meals.

“[The couple] did the most amazing first dance,” an attendee adds.

Sorum sported a John Varvatos-designed suit and Harper wore a Monique Lhuillier gown for the occasion, which marked more than seven years since the couple met at a Super Bowl party in Texas.

And Sorum hasn’t been shy about his longtime lady love. “@AceHarper is the coolest fiancé on the planet,” he wrote on Instagram weeks before they tied the knot. “U are too sweet,” she replied.
