Songwriter and American Idol judge KARA DIOGUARDI had a very special Independence Day weekend - she got married.
The hitmaker wed general contractor Mike MCCuddy in Maine on Sunday (05Jul09).
DioGuardi wore a Vera Wang gown for the intimate ceremony, according to In Touch magazine.
MCCuddy proposed to DioGuardi in December (08) and they exchanged vows at the United Methodist Church, which is located just across the street from her house, in front of about 30 guests.
The songwriter, 38, tells the publication, "I feel great. What was most unbelievable about the experience was when I looked out at the church and saw all these people that were so important to me and Mike, who were there for us. It was pretty powerful. I was very emotional and I'm not somebody who breaks down and cries."
