Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger tied the knot Monday, July 1 at a chateau in the South of France, a source close to Avril confirms to ABC News Radio. The wedding was the main event in a three-day celebration for 110 of the couple's closest family and friends, and Avril says they went all out to give their loved ones memories they'd never forget.
"I wanted to make sure it’s a crazy vacation and an experience of a lifetime for our guests,” Avril tells Hello! Canada magazine. Always the one to be edgy, she walked down the aisle in a black tulle Monique Lhuillier gown.
This is the first marriage for Chad, and he tells Hello! Canada, "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." The blushing bride adds, "We hope to be together forever. One day down the road we’ll have a family. I look forward to growing with Chad.”
