Saturday, July 6. It would have been any other day in the world’s calendar, but not for Elisha Cuthbert, Dion Phaneuf and all their fans and well-wishers. After dating for 5 good years (since 2008), the couple finally said “I do” to each other at the Summerfield, Prince Edward Island in Canada, which is the native homeland for the two lovebirds. The wedding took place in the St. James Church.
While the norm for many Hollywood A-list celebs has been to shun away from the conventional white wedding dresses, Elisha Cuthbert chose to go against the grain. In a photo that was released to the press soon after the ceremony, Elisha appears in a virginal white lace wedding dress that makes her look super radiant and adorable while her 28-year-old beau, who plays hockey defenseman in the Toronto Maple Leafs, wears a tuxedo.
Elisha’s conventional full length wedding dress was complemented by a diamond appliqué belt and a flare up tulle skirt and nothing would have looked more spectacular than this. Having the bridesmaid dresses made from lace would also have been a great idea, but the event was a family and friends invites-only ceremony and the bridesmaid would anyway have gone largely unnoticed.
Despite the obvious joy that was present in the ceremony, Dion at a time appeared to have been overcome by emotions as he was seen clutching a white tissue.
Everything about Elisha Cuthbert’s wedding bespoke of meticulous planning, which was exactly what was to be expected after five years of dating. Phaneuf described the church where the wedding took place as a white modest church built on a hill that offered a breathtaking view of rolling farmland on every side.
For their big day, large lettering of “D&E” were glued to the side of the church, telling everyone who cared to listen that this was not just another day in the calendar of the world. The venue in essence was as romantic as the laced wedding dresses that brides wear.
After the hushed ceremony, the couple headed to Phaneuf’s vintage Camero-which rumors has, was a birthday gift for the gentleman from Elisha. The ceremony was followed by a large reception party at a waterfront estate that is said to be owned by Dion.
