Kate Pierson, co-founder of the band The B-52s, has married her longtime partner Monica Coleman in Hawaii.

The 67-year-old “Love Shack” singer took to her Facebook page on Tuesday to share photos of her and her new wife’s wedding photos.

The singer and artist Coleman exchanged vows in Hawaii on Monday, with both women in Victorian-style wedding gowns.

Most of us remember The B-52s for their popular song “Love Shack”:

A rep for Pierson stated, “The wedding was attended by the entire B-52s band, Sia Furler and husband Erik Anders Lang were the witnesses.

“Sia performed the song she wrote for the couple “Crush Me With You Love” on Pierson’s first solo album Guitars and Microphones and was accompanied by the famous Hawaii music group the Lim Family who serenaded the attendees during the event. Fred Schneider made the best man speech.”

In 1978 The B-52s shot to underground stardom with their first hit “Rock Lobster”.

Their guitarist, Ricky Wilson, passed away in 1982, with the remaining members – Kate Pierson, Fred Schneider, Cindy Wilson, and Keith Strickland –continuing to perform.
