Rush Limbaugh's wedding in June garnered a lot of attention.

First off, his new wife, Kathryn Rogers, is beautiful and they seem really happy together. We wish the radio host and his bride nothing but the best in life.

Much of the buzz surrounding the nuptials in Palm Beach, Fla., stemmed from the fact that Elton John personally performed at the occasion. He really did.

The singer's partner, David Furnish, confirmed that Elton John, a gay liberal, sang at the conservative activist's ceremony, making for a truly odd scene.

Now there are pictures proving that the scene existed: Rush posted them himself on Facebook! Famous media and political figures ... they're just like us.

Rush Limbaugh's wife, Kathryn Rogers, was the center of attention - but when Elton John serves as your wedding singer, he's guaranteed to get his share as well.

Of course, the fact that Rush reportedly paid $1 million for Elton's performance - all of the proceeds going to charity - might help smooth over any differences.

Gushing comments abound on Limbaugh's Facebook page, such as:

  • "Two American Winners! God Bless and Congrats!"
  • "What a classy wedding for a CLASSY couple."
  • "Great pictures Rush, It's good to see you both so happy!
  • "Congrats Rush .... Kathryn is so out of your league :)".

Conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh is a married man again, and outspoken gay rights advocate Elton John helped ring in his wedding to Kathryn Rogers!

Elton serenaded the 400 guests into the wee hours Saturday night to celebrate the marriage of Limbaugh and Rogers at the Breakers hotel in Palm Beach, Fla.

The couple met six years ago, while Kathryn Rogers, 33, was running a charity golf tournament and Rush Limbaugh, 59, was going through his third divorce.

The Palm Beach Post reports that guests included Karl Rove, Fred Thompson, George Brett, Sean Hannity, Rudy Giuliani, James Carville and Clarence Thomas.

Elton John, however, was perhaps the most notable, given his ideological differences with Rush. Then again, his $1 million fee for the evening goes a long way.

ODD COUPLE: Can't say we saw this ne coming.

A million bucks is pretty steep, but did Rush and Kathryn get a discount? Reuters says that of all wedding singers, John is among the most expensive worldwide.

The music icon charges up to "$2 million for private performances, with all earnings from private concerts going to his charity, the Elton John AIDS Foundation.”

Yes, his AIDS foundation. Remember last October 2009, when Limbaugh compared the disease to swine flu in the way both were being "hyped"? That crazy Rush.

Or in 2007, when Limbaugh said other, equally incorrect, equally reprehensible things about AIDS? Elton John could have charged the full $2 million, you'd think.

Anyway, congratulations to Rush and Kathryn Rogers! Hopefully she sticks around the radio magnate longer than his previous three wives, and he's feeling better.
