Nothing warms our heart quite like a beautiful love story, especially when two people who deserve each other most come together in matrimony.

Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger reportedly tied the knot in the south of France yesterday, July 1. Why July 1? Because it's Canada Day, eh! No, seriously... because it's Canada Day. And they're both from Canada.

Kroeger told People last year, "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." That is how anniversaries work—they are always on that day.

As for the romantic location, that's all Avril. Though she's known for her unique punk style (read: pounds of black eyeliner and "purple bone dance hoodies"), it's French Riviera style that really speaks to her. A source told E! Online, "She's very immersed in French food, ambiance and culture." Which explains why my wedding will be in Canton, MA, home to Dunkin' Donuts global headquarters.

Congrats to the happy couple. We're glad you found your happy ending (for now).
