Everyone's been atwitter about the 5-carat rock that Steven Tyler gave his fiancee Erin Brady when he proposed to her in Hawaii over Christmas — but now there's a new twist to the story. TMZ reports that the two were photographed Dec. 30 in Maui, engaged in some sort of ceremony, and though the pair are dressed quite casually — it doesn't look like wedding apparel — the woman in the photographs works for an organization who performs "traditional and ancient Hawaiian weddings." Sounds intriguing, right?

If Steven, 63, did indeed wed Erin, 38, it's unlikely it'll do much to assuage the concerns of his family, who are reportedly livid about the engagement. Even though Steven and Erin have been together for over 5 years, a source said that Erin has a track record of being "mean to the family" and is "just not nice."

Could the photos actually be of their wedding? If so, we're wishing many congratulations to the happy couple!
