by at . Comments

Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed got married Saturday, making it official after 28 YEARS of dating and two children together. Better late than never!

The KISS bassist, 62, and the actress, 54, exchanged vows in evening ceremony outside on the crystal lawn at the posh Beverly Hills Hotel yesterday.

The guests cheered loudly when Simmons said "I do" to his partner.

Tweed walked down the aisle in an ivory Priscilla of Boston gown, one of three dresses she chose for the occasion, and carried a bouquet of ivory roses.

The couple exchanged vows they wrote themselves in front of 400 guests including Hugh Hefner, Bill Maher and, of course, the other KISS members.

Also in attendance were Shannon Tweed and Gene Simmons' two children Nick, 22, and Sophie, 19, who served as the maid of honor for her mother.

Their first dance was quite fitting for a couple who have been together nearly 30 years: "At Last" by Etta James, performed by daughter Sophie.

Congratulations to the couple, who got engaged this summer on their reality show (what better way). Here's Gene's proposal to Shannon:
