According to TMZ, Mel Gibson came out of seclusion Saturday… not to the sounds of police sirens and drunken belligerence but to the chiming of wedding bells. The actor/director proudly walked his 26-year-old daughter Hannah down the aisle as she married blues guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

Hannah is Mel’s only daughter and the oldest of his seven offspring. A lavish ceremony was held at Holy Family Catholic Church in Agoura Hills, Calif., a venue Mel built using his own personal fortune. The Catholic ceremony was reportedly performed entirely in Latin. Did anyone else know Mel was religious? Wow!

After the ceremony, the happy couple was promptly whisked away in a black limousine, as both cameras and well-wishers looked on. Shepherd, 29, has several platinum albums to his credit, along with Grammy nominations for both his “Trouble” and “Live On” records.
