WEDDIN’ BELLS A RINGIN’

The Comrie Corporation – Duff Inc Corporate merger has gone ahead, with the final agreement signed yesterday in Montecito, California according to reports surfacing on the interwebs.

Squeed the venerable US Magazine:

"Hilary Duff is officially a married woman! The 22-year-old actress wed her hockey player beau, Mike Comrie, in an intimate sunset ceremony at a $29 million estate near the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito, Calif. on Saturday, UsMagazine.com has confirmed.

Approximately 100 of the couple’s closest family members and friends enjoyed poolside cocktails before the ceremony began at sundown. Clad in a strapless Vera Wang gown with her hair in a bun, Duff made her way down the aisle — lined with candles and rose petals — with her mother, Susan, by her side. Duff’s older sister, Haylie, served as maid of honor. "It was one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever seen," a witness told Us of the pair’s 20-minute ceremony. "Absolutely stunning. They thought of every last detail and it was an incredible sight." 

IT CONTINUES

Together for more than two years, Duff and Comrie, 29, got engaged during a Hawaiian vacation in February. After Comrie got down on one knee and presented his girlfriend with a 14-carat, radiant-cut sparkler."

"Though the pair often endure a long-distance relationship, Duff says she and her new husband have a surprisingly "natural" relationship. "We both have busy jobs, and we’re both very focused people, so that helps," the actress tells Us. "Since we are apart so much, it’s not like one person is at home waiting for the other."

What makes Comrie her perfect match? "He’s a great guy," Duff gushes. "I’ve never met anyone who could say a bad word about him. He’s generous, caring, funny. We just laugh our heads off, which I need in my life … He’s unique. I wouldn’t want to be with someone who wasn’t unique."

FURTHER SPECULATION

When asked his plans to play ice hockey for the Edmonton Oilers next season and prodded for suggestions to improve power play conversion, Comrie was clearly taken off guard and fumbled for words.

"Uhhhh, er… oh. Yeah. That." before being whisked away into the night by a team of wedding specialists.
