AVRIL & CHAD
Staying true to her wild-child image, even as a bride, Avril Lavigne, 29, rocked a black tulle Monique Lhuillier gown and carried a bouquet of black roses when she wed Nickelback's Chad Kroeger in a 14th-century French château on July 1. The date held a special place for the Canadian duo: It was the anniversary of their first date the year before, as well as their nation's birthday. Kroeger, 39, said it was "very cool that our anniversary will always be on Canada Day," before adding, "We can't wait to start our life together. We're very happy."
