Scott Weiland Gets Married
Congratulations go out to rocker Scott Weiland, who married photographer Jamie Wachtel on Saturday evening (June 22) at their home in Los Angeles.
Weiland, 45, and Wachtel, 35, met in 2011 when she worked on shooting photographs on the sets of his Christmas album videos. People magazine reports that the wedding was an intimate ceremony that primarily included family and close friends.
“We had the most beautiful, heartfelt ceremony,” reported Wachtel. “We all cried and laughed. Scott and I are over the moon!” Weiland sported a John Varvatos suit while Wachtel wore a vintage dress.
The news of Weiland’s marriage is a positive event in what has been a tumultuous year. The singer was recently fired from Stone Temple Pilots and replaced by Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington. That has led to some verbal venom and legal action between Weiland and his former STP bandmates.
With Stone Temple Pilots recording and touring with Bennington as their singer, Weiland continues to hit the road playing STP classics and other tunes with his solo band the Wildabouts.
