Elisha Cuthbert and Toronto Maple Leaf captain Dion Phaneuf decided to finally tie the knot this weekend in a private wedding.
Cuthbert, a Canadian actress (and professional eye roller) well-known for her roles in films like Love Actually and The Girl Next Door, married long time boyfriend Phaneuf over the weekend on Saturday. The wedding is said to have taken place at St. James Catholic Church in Summerfield, Prince Edward Island.
An insider speaking to Us Weekly said the couple wanted a formal wedding:
“The wedding will be in tents, and if it’s not raining, the tents will be open.There will be fireworks while guests are eating and food trucks at midnight, courtesy of the in-laws.”
I don’t see how fireworks and food trucks are formal, but I can only assume that one’s perception of formality changes as they go up the income ladder.
Speaking of which, Phaneuf hosted the reception at his waterside estate nearby. It’s been a favorite of Cuthbert’s since she started dating him in 2008 as it gave them a kind of privacy that’s nearly unattainable anywhere else.
As for the wedding itself, it was as normal as the wedding between two stars can be. The Journal Pioneer says that the ceremony itself was a private affair, but hundreds of people lined up alongside the road to catch a glimpse of the couple before and after they exchanged their vows at the church. Cuthbert was reportedly a good sport about all the extra attention, and welcomed the warm wishes from the crowd with a wave.[Image: Kristin Santos/flickr]
