Céline Dion’s wedding was nothing less than grand, according to People.
On January 15, 2016, People posted a story about Dion’s wedding with late husband Angélil in honor of his memories.
Rasplove shares with you a wonderful memory from the lives of Céline Dion and her late husband, René.
He passed away on January 14 last year after having hardly fought a long battle against cancer.
In 1994, on the day of their wedding, the whole event caused a complete media frenzy. Many reporters and camera crews circled the Notre Dame Basilica, where they held the wedding.
In fact, a Quebec magazine even offered and paid $200,000 just for an exclusive view of the wedding ceremony.
Hundreds of fans gathered outside the church and waited for hours just to witness the bride’s grand entrance.
She wore a lavish, white, full-bodied gown with an over-the-top lace veil.
Former Prime Minister Brian Mulroney and David Foster were one of the 500 guests who attended the wedding.
In an interview with CBC Journal Canada, Foster said, “They’re the most enchanting couple I’ve ever met.”
The couple met in 1980 when Angélil first discovered Dion. He was a music manager and Céline was only 12 when they met.
Soon enough, she released her first debut album, La Voix Du Bon Dieu, after he signed her. Angélil even had to mortgage his own home just to pay for the album expenses.
Céline and her husband had three children together. René-Charles, 16, and their 6-year-old twins, Nelson and Eddy.
Weddings are great memories. It’s a special moment where two people’s love for each other gets to be celebrated for one special day. Plus, for most women, the wedding gown is a big thing.
