Her name isn't Caroline, but Neil Diamond thinks she's even sweeter.

The "Love on the Rocks" singer, 71, wed his manager, Katie McNeil, 42, in front of family and close friends in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Diamond announced the couples' engagement on Twitter last September.

"Good news coming from sunny LA/ and you're the first I want to tell/ Katie & I just got engaged/ and I hope you wish us well," he wrote at the time. "I'd like you to meet Katie," he added, posting a photo of his fiancee. "I'm lovestruck."

It's the first trip down the aisle for McNeil and the third marriage for Diamond, who wed his high school sweetheart Jaye Posner in 1963 and had two daughters, Marjorie and Elyn. After divorcing Posner in 1969, he married Marcia Murphey, a production assistant and had two sons, Jesse and Michah, before splitting in 1994.

The superstar kicks off a summer tour in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. on June 1, followed by more performances in L.A. in August.
