Stevie Nicks performs Vanessa Carlton wedding ceremony

Stevie Nicks performed the wedding ceremony of singer Vanessa Carlton and Deer Tick frontman John McCauley on Friday.

Rolling Stone reports Carlton shared the news on Twitter with a photo of the outdoor ceremony (above), along with the note to the Fleetwood Mac singer: "Thanks Stevie for marrying us!"

McCauley also posted a photo to Instagram of Nicks signing the couple's wedding license.

McCauley and Carlton met through their mutual friend, Patrick Hallahan of My Morning Jacket, who played drums on Carlton's 2011 album "Rabbits On The Run." While on tour this past fall, Carlton announced that she was pregnant. However, in early November, she revealed on Facebook that she had suffered dangerous complications from what turned out to be an ectopic pregnancy, and was forced to cancel the tour.

Earlier this month, Nicks released her 2013 documentary, “In Your Dreams.”

The project shows a behind-the-scenes look at the singer as she created her 2011 solo album of the same title.

Co-produced and co-directed by Dave Stewart, “In Your Dreams” shows the musical journey that the two artists embarked on in Nicks’ Los Angeles home as they wrote and recorded an album during what Nicks called “the greatest year of my life”.

For “In Your Dreams”, Nicks allowed cameras inside her mansion high above L.A. with a wild cast of musicians and friends. The inner life of the legendary Nicks has by her design long been kept at a distance from the public. We learn in “Dreams” that her world features costume parties, elaborate dinner feasts, tap dancing, fantasy creations and revealing song writing and recording sessions all of which are captured on film.

Nicks has been making headlines recently with news that she will be making a cameo role on an upcoming episode of the FX series American Horror Story: Coven. Read more about it here.
