Wallem, one of the creators of the Showtime original series “Nurse Jackie,” wore a lovely Theia wedding gown while Etheridge looked handsomely dapper in a gray suit. Congrats, ladies!
On June 3, Etheridge tweeted out love to Wallem’s bridal designer, Theia’s Don O’Neill with a photo of the gown on a mannequin.

People.com reports that during the wedding ceremony, Etheridge sang a new song she wrote especially for Wallem and which Etheridge had never performed before – not even to Wallem.
All four of Etheridge’s children participated in the wedding: Bailey Jean, 17; Beckett, 15; and twins Miller Steven and Johnnie Rose, 7.
Among those also looking on as Etheridge and Wallem exchanged their vows were Jane Lynch, Chelsea Handler, Rosie O’Donnell, Whitney Cummings, Peter Facinelli and recording artist Sia.
The singer and the Nurse Jackie creator had been friends for more than a decade before they began dating in 2010. Last June, they announced their engagement following the Supreme Court’s historic decisions regarding gay rights, with Etheridge calling Wallem ‘my true love.'”
