According to People, Etheridge and Wallem had been friends for over a decade before they began dating in 2010.
In September of 2013, they announced their engagement, following supreme court rulings in favor of marriage equality. "I look forward to exercising my American civil liberties," Etheridge tweeted at the time.

Two days after both turning 53, Etheridge and Wallem walked down the aisle, in what various guests told People was a "really beautiful" ceremony.
True love...so blessed. "By the power invested in me by the state of California..." Thanks pic.twitter.com/rWftMxdxQv

Etheridge supposedly wrote a song for Wallem, which she played at the wedding. Since we have yet to hear the song, we'll just have to imagine the entire event was set to "Fearless Love."
