(Yahoo!) - Avril Lavigne said Chad Kroeger let her "take the reins" when it came to planning their wedding and she turned it into a true rock 'n' roll celebration … complete with a black dress.

The "Here's to Never Growing Up" singer went the nontraditional route for her second trip up the aisle, donning a black tulle Monique Lhuilliergown for her July 1 wedding to the Nickelback singer in the South of France. It was strapless and featured a full, but not princess-like, bottom.

The 28-year-old's long hair, which was loosely curled, cascaded down her back, and she had on light-catching jeweled crown-type headpiece. It seemed fitting as the wedding took place at Chateau de la Napoule, a medieval castle near Cannes. So she still had a true princess moment.

Kroeger matched his bride in black. In the photographs taken outside their wedding venue — as they watched a fireworks on a balcony — he wore a suit in the dark hue and the same color button-down shirt.

The wedding was an all-night party fit for rock stars, as omg! detailed here, with dinner not being served until 1:30 a.m., the cake cutting at 3:30 a.m, and guests partying until 6 a.m. However, Hello!magazine reports that the candlelight ceremony was "emotional and intimate" for the couple and their 110 guests.

"I wanted to make sure it’s a crazy vacation and an experience of a lifetime for our guests," the bride told the magazine.
