GOULDSBORO, Maine — “American Idol” judge Kara DioGuardi has tied the knot in Maine.

A spokeswoman for DioGuardi tells People magazine that the ceremony took place on July 5 at Prospect Harbor United Methodist Church.

DioGuardi lives in a sea captain’s home in Prospect Harbor, where she met general contractor Mike McCuddy while he was working on a home next door. McCuddy proposed on Dec. 8.

People says DioGuardi didn’t skip the bling. For her wedding, the singer-songwriter wore a Vera Wang dress, as well as a 30-carat diamond-and-platinum bracelet and chandelier earrings with 20 carats of diamonds.
