A week earlier, invited guests received a Gothic, death-themed invitation that noted no cell phones or cameras were allowed. The night before the wedding, McLean tweeted that he was “nervous and excited.” 

The nuptials cap off a whirlwind year for McLean, which began with a stint in rehab in January followed by the successful New Kids on the Block-Backstreet Boys tour, which grossed over $40 million and sold out 22 shows, making it the 17th highest grossing tour of 2011.
