He’s no longer a lonely boy – Patrick Carney has tied the knot.

The Black Keys drummer, 32, married Emily Ward in the backyard of their Nashville home on Saturday, a rep for the band confirms to PEOPLE.

Officiated by comedian and Saturday Night Live alum Will Forte, the ceremony took place in front of 350 guests, including bandmate Dan Auerbach and pro snowboarder Shaun White, who was arrested the following day.

Accompanying Carney was the couple’s Irish wolfhound, Charlotte, while Ward – clad in Carolina Herrera – walked down the aisle to “Crimson and Clover” by Tommy James and the Shondells.

The wedding party included Ward’s siblings Danielle Shuster and Henry Ward, as well as Carney’s brothers Will Carney, Michael Carney and Barry Stormer.

The couple were engaged over Grammy weekend in February 2011. This is the first marriage for Ward and the second for Carney.
