Kara DioGuardi, Mike McCuddy, InTouch Weekly

In Touch

American Idol's Kara DioGuardi isn't just a new judge. She's a newlywed!

The talent competition's freshest face married general contractor Mike McCuddy Sunday in Prospect Harbor, Maine, E! News confirms.

The sun was shining as the 38-year-old producer-singer-songwriter walked down the aisle at United Methodist Church. The bride wore a strapless, mermaid-style Vera Wang confection as nearly 30 friends and family members looked on.

The couple met when the 34-year-old former teacher built a home next door to DioGuardi's New England abode. He popped the question in December—just before the brunette's A.I. debut—during a vacation in Mexico.

"I feel great," the star told In Touch Weekly. "What was most unbelievable about the experience was when I looked out at the church and saw all these people that were so important to me and Mike, who where there for us. It was pretty powerful. I was very emotional and I'm not somebody who breaks down and cries."

No word as to where her honeymoon will take her, or if her return will be followed by a second season of Idol.
