Nick Carter Marries Lauren Kitt
Carter and Kitt have been engaged since February of 2013 and were married in an outdoor ceremony at Santa Barbara, Calif., overlooking the ocean.
Carter, the youngest of the Backstreet Boys, and Kitt, a fitness expert, wrote their own vows for the ceremony, according to a source. The source also revealed that Kitt and Carter could not have appeared more in love, sharing a slightly risqué kiss at the altar.
“At the end of the ceremony they shared the longest wedding kiss I’ve ever seen. A full minute later they were still kissing. They seem crazy in love and thrilled to be married. You could feel the love bursting out of them,” the source told US Weekly.
On Monday, Carter announced the happy news to his Twitter followers, writing, “I married my best friend and woman of my dreams.”

Backstreet Boys Wedding
Of course, a majority of Carter’s Backstreet Boys band mates were in attendance. AJ McLean, Howie Dorough and Brien Littrell were all present. McLean’s daughter, Ava, even participated in the ceremony as flower girl. The wedding was an emotional affair for the Backstreet Boys, with McLean calling it “bittersweet,” but also saying that he could not be more proud.
“And you know, we’re all family. We’re all brothers. To see our little baby brother finally make that big, big final step. Next step is having kids. Obviously they just got married, so obviously take your time,” McLean said.
“Enjoy your time together first,” advised Littrell.

Aaron Carter Misses Brother's Wedding
Final band member, Kevin Richardson, was reportedly absent. Also unable to attend was Nick Carter’s younger brother, Aaron Carter, who missed his brother’s wedding due to flight delays. Aaron posted multiple photos on Instagram Saturday, saying that he was stuck in an airport after his flight was delayed. By the time he finally got on a plane, it was apparently too late.
“Really pissed off that I missed my brother’s wedding today… I hope he doesn’t hate me… I tried to get there… I’m so sorry bro,” Aaron posted along with a photo of himself looking unhappy in his window seat.
Nick Carter’s marriage marks the end of an era where at least one of the Backstreet Boys was a bachelor.
