This time, it’s for real.
After reports surfaced on Saturday that Avril Lavigne and Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger had tied the knot that very night – resulting in updates to say that, in fact, the ceremony had yet to take place – the Canadian rockers are now officially united in marriage, various sources tell PEOPLE.
In a nod to their native country, the wedding took place on July 1, Canada Day – though the celebration took place in the South of France.
In September, Kroeger, 38, told PEOPLE why the date was important to the couple.
“We met while recording music in March. But we started dating July 1, so I’ll let the math speak for itself there. We think it’s very cool that our anniversary will always be on Canada Day. We can’t wait to start our life together. We’re very happy,” he said.
She also said Kroeger was happy to let his bride-to-be take charge.
