The young, beautiful, and talented singer Avril Lavigne and longtime boyfriend Deryck Whibley of the band Sum 41 tied the knot Saturday afternoon July 15th, 2006 in California.
The outdoor ceremony took place at a private estate in the coastal city of Montecito, 90 miles northwest of Los Angeles. People magazine noted there were about 110 guests in attendance, including Whibley's pals at the band and a longtime friend of Lavigne's.
The bride was walked down the aisle at the service by her father John Lavigne, while her mother Judy and siblings Michelle and Matthew looked on, as did Whibley's mother Michelle. Lavigne, 21, and Whibley, 26, who are both natives of Ontario, Canada, have been together for two years, and got engaged in Venice, Italy, in June 2005, while Lavigne was on tour there.
"I'm used to going on stage and stuff but this was totally different," Lavigne said Sunday, in an interview to be featured on Monday's ET Canada. "It was more exciting. It was the biggest moment of my life."
