Meg White and Jackson Smith were married May 22 as part of a double ceremony in the backyard of White Stripes frontman Jack White's Nashville home, according to the White Stripes' Web site.

Jack opened up his Nashville home on Friday to his ex-wife, Meg, 34, so that she could wed Smith, son of famed punk godmother Patti Smith and late MC5 guitarist Fred "Sonic" Smith.

White and Smith were married as part of a double ceremony that also celebrated the union of another of Jack's bandmates, the Dead Weather/Raconteurs bassist "Little" Jack Lawrence, who married his girlfriend, Jo McCaughey.

The attendees were described as "a small party of close friends and relatives." The weddings were officiated by the Rev. Benjamin Swank.
