After years of crooning the sweetest songs in the English language, born romantic Michael BublÃƒÂ© married Luisana Lopilato, his girlfriend of two years in an extremely simple ceremony, earlier today. While we might have imagined white satin dinner jackets and albino peacocks flying out of an ivory baby grand, the happy couple instead locked it down in a civil ceremony in Buenos Aires. Outside BublÃƒÂ© was smiling; inside we can tell he was disappointingly throwing all those issues of Modern Bride right in the recycling bin.
The bride was not, as we would have assumed, taken to a cathedral on a horse-drawn carriage while mice held up her 100-foot antique lace train, but instead wore a lilac-colored dress to the civil registry, where women stood outside screaming her husband’s name. Despite their humble surroundings, Lopilato tweeted her thanks to friends and family, saying “How beautiful it all was!” Luckily, however, the happy couple will have several more opportunities to release 100,000 monarch butterflies out of a giant crystal heart, i.e. pulling a BublÃƒÂ©. Not content with just one plain one, BublÃƒÂ© and Lopilato’s real wedding ceremony will reportedly been held outside Buenos Aires with 300 guests in attendance. Which, in addition to another celebration in Vancouver, tells us that Michael is going to get that dream wedding we sense he’s been hoping for all along.
