Eighty-five guests -- including the couple's 2-year-old son, Hunter,
and Durbin's Idol pals Stefano Langone, Haley Reinhart and Casey Abrams
-- looked on as the pair swapped vows near a redwood forest. The duo's
little boy served as the ring bearer.

Having to plan their wedding while Durbin was on the road with the
American Idols Live! tour this summer may have seemed like a daunting
task, but the couple took it in stride.
"We're having such a small wedding that it's not this big hassle
that we can't handle. We're planning it all ourselves," Durbin
told Us in November of their big day. "We don't need a wedding
planner. We're not that crazy about it, you know. It's not about everyone
else. It's about us, and we're keeping that mindset."
Having his ceremony on New Year's Eve wasn't a biggie, either. "It
doesn't matter what day it is," he told Us. "It's our day."
Durbin's debut album, Memories of a Beautiful Disaster, was
released in November.
