Mel Walks His Daughter Down the Aisle

Mel Gibson came out of seclusion Saturday to the sound of chiming wedding bells. The embattled actor proudly walked his 26-year-old daughter Hannah down the aisle, as she married blues guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd. Hannah is the eldest of Mel's seven children and his only daughter.

The lavish ceremony took place at Holy Family Catholic Church in Agoura Hills, Calif., which Mel built using his own personal fortune. The traditional Catholic ceremony was reportedly performed entirely in Latin.

After the ceremony, the happy couple was promptly whisked away in a jet black limousine, as both cameras and well-wishers looked on.

Shepherd is no newbie to fame; the musician achieved his first platinum album while in high school and received a Grammy nomination for both his "Trouble" and "Live On" albums.
