Canadian actress Elisha Cuthbert has wed longtime boyfriend and NHL star Dion Phaneuf.
Cuthbert and her Toronto Maple Leafs captain husband wed on Saturday at Prince Edward Island.
According to the National Post, more than 300 guests were on-hand for the couple’s massive wedding reception.
Elisha Cuthbert and Dion Phaneuf exchanged vows at St. James Catholic Church in Summerfield.
Toronto Star reporter Rosie DiManno was reporting on the event via live Tweets while she stood outside of the church and reception areas. DiManno reports that Cuthbert and Phaneuf went with a maple leaves theme, which seems fitting for both Phaneuf’s career and Canada in general.
Elisha Cuthbert’s bridesmaids wore pale pink fishtail gowns while the bride was chauffeured to the ceremony in a black Chevrolet Camaro convertible.
After the wedding, Reverend Paul Egan told The Post:
“It’s a big wedding. Probably the biggest I’ve ever done in my 46 years, as far as the celebrity part of it goes.”
In case you are wondering why Elisha Cuthbert and her new hubby chose Prince Edward Island, it has been their favorite choice for a vacation spot over the last five summers spent together.
The outdoor wedding was followed by a party with family and friends, which ended with fireworks over the water.
Elisha Cuthbert and Dion Phaneuf began dating five years ago and the NHL star popped the question in early 2012. Phaneuf proposed to his wife in front of 35 friends during a lobster dinner.
According to witnesses who experienced the engagement, Dion Phaneuf provided his future wish with a “huge ring” that was hard to ignore.
This is a much happier occasion then Cuthbert’s Twitter eye roll controversy, which led fans of the actress to defend her actions.
Congratulations to Elisha Cuthbert and Dion Phaneuf on their long awaited wedding.
