Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger release their first official wedding photo!The singer wore a black wedding gown for her nuptials in the South of France.

Singer Avril Lavigne, 28, rocked a bejeweled flower headpiece in her long blonde hair to complement her strapless black Monique Lhullier gown. Chad Kroeger, 38, wore a black tuxedo over a black shirt and vest in true rocker form. 

They had a elaborate wedding ceremony at the Chateau La Napoule in Mandelieu, France, treated guests to an impressive fireworks display on the Mediterranean just before midnight, a source told Us Weekly.
“Avril and Chad had glasses of wine in their hands and were kissing as fireworks popped overhead and sparkled down,” the reveler said. “It was a magical moment and everyone was overwhelmed!”



The punk princess’s wedding look was a stark contrast from her first wedding. Just 21 when she married Deryck Whibley in 2006, she wore a very traditional, classic dress — a white strapless Vera Wang with a sweetheart neck and long train. She also had a long veil.

However, as any wedding expert can tell you, brides tend to go in a different direction for a second wedding. In this case, Lavigne went a little wild … and perhaps a more true to her personal style.

As for her decision to wear black, we’ve seen a lot more of the color since Vera Wang debuted a line of dresses in that shade at a runway show in 2011. Former “90210” actress Shenae Grimes wore a black and blush dress from the designer when she married Josh Beech in May. source: OMG Yahoo
