Goo Goo Dolls singer and frontman John Rzeznik married his longtime girlfriend Melina Gallo on Friday night, reports People magazine.

The pair tied the knot at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, Calif. with around 120 guests in attendance, including fellow Dolls.

"The whole thing was just about family and friends," said the 48-year-old in a statement to the magazine. "It was really beautiful and romantic.

Guests were treated to a dinner of roast chicken, garlic mashed potatoes and wild mushroom ravioli; Gallo wore an Enzoani gown while Rzeznik sported a dark green Gucci suit.

The Goo Goo Dolls are on the road these days promoting their tenth album "Magnetic," but Rzeznik didn't break into song during the reception. "We made it perfectly clear that I would not be singing at all at our wedding," he said, instead pointing out that the couple's song was Adele's "Make You Feel My Love."

They're planning to honeymoon in Italy and France after the tour ends.

"We've been together a while and I'm not going anywhere and we'd like to start a family," he said, noting that they had no set idea of how many children they'd like to have. "I'd prefer to be married when I have kids."

This is Rzeznik's second marriage; he and Gallo began dating in 2005.
