Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger certainly celebrated Canada Day in a special way! The rockers reportedly wed in the South of France on July 1, 2013, and this bride was most definitely a little punk rock.
According to the UK's HELLO! magazine, the Skater Boy singer, 28, wore a black tulle Monique Lhuillier gown on her wedding day as she celebrated at the Chateau de la Napoule medieval castle near Cannes. "I wanted to make sure it’s a crazy vacation and an experience of a lifetime for our guests," she told the magazine, adding that she wanted the big day to be "over the top."
As for the theme of her destination wedding, "I'm obsessed with castles and I love French decor and goth. ...I found this castle in France and we visited it and it was perfect."
Lavigne said her "I dos" to the 38-year-old Nickelback frontman in front of 110 guests. "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 of the big day.
The newlyweds, who are both Canadian, started dating in Feb. 2012 after Kroeger began helping Lavigne on her latest album Here's To Never Growing Up. Despite the album title, the two did in fact grow up and Kroeger proposed this past August with a 14-carat diamond ring.
