American Idol‘ finalist James Durbin, who released ‘Memories of a Beautiful Disaster’ in late 2011, celebrated New Year’s Eve in a special way. He exchanged vows with longtime love Heidi Lowe, with their song Hunter, 2, serving as the ring bearer.

According to PEOPLE, Durbin and Lowe wed in front of around 85 guests in chapel bordering a redwood forest in the Santa Cruz Mountains. How romantic.

“We are so in love and happy that we got to share our special day with our closest family and friends,” Durbin and Lowe told the magazine. “This wedding was the perfect way to kick off the New Year. We are looking forward to living happily ever after.”

Durbin, 22, invited several alum (and fellow runners up) from his season of ‘Idol,’ including Haley Reinhart, Stefano Langone and Casey Abrams.

Congrats to the happy couple. It was certainly a great year for the singer on a professional and personal level. Let’s hope 2012 continues the trend for the Durbinator.
