Starting 2012 off right,  American Idol season 10 alum James Durbin married his longtime girlfriend on New Year’s Eve, People magazine reports.

Durbin’s rep confirms that the 22-year-old singer tied the knot with Heidi Lowe in front of 85 guests–including fellow Season 10 contestants Haley Reinhart, Stefano Langone and Casey Abrams –in a chapel near a redwood forest in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The couple’s 2-year-old son, Hunter, was the ring bearer.  The pair tells People: “We are so in love and happy that we got to share our special day with our closest family and friends. This wedding was the perfect way to kick off the New Year. We are looking forward to living happily ever after.”
