Avril Lavigne and Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger marry in FranceBy Kelsey Fowler | July 3rd, 2013 | No Comments »
The two met working on Lavigne’s upcoming fifth album, and have been engaged since August 2012.
News of a wedding started when talent manager Mike Heller tweeted last Saturday: “I’m in south of France about to see my little Rok star #avril get married I am so happy to be part of this special celebration.”
E! also reports the couple’s “three-day wedding celebration” kicked off Saturday night in Cannes with a rehearsal dinner.
“I wanted to make sure it’s a crazy vacation and an experience of a lifetime for our guests,” Lavigne told Hello! magazine. “I’ve been planning this wedding for a really long time.”
According to Hello!, the wedding took place Monday, July 1 and was attended by 110 people. Lavigne reportedly wore a black Monique Lhuillier dress. “When you’ve got that ring on your finger that you get to look at every single day, and you get to call that other person husband or wife, it’s a really special feeling,” Kroeger said.
Photos have popped up on Twitter of Avril in a white wedding dress as well. It appears she might have worn white for the ceremony, and black to the reception.
