Karen Elson and Jack White were married yesterday on the confluence of three rivers–the Rio Negro, the Solimones, and the Amazon–in the Amazon basin in the city of Manaus, Brazil. They were married by a traditional Shaman priest in a canoe at the exact point where the three rivers meet. The bride and groom were accompanied by a small party of close friends. The best man was Ian Montone. Meg White was the maid of honor. The ceremony was immediately followed by a blessing by a priest at a Catholic Cathedral called Igreja Matriz in the historical city of Manaus. This was the first marriage for both newlyweds (even though other news reports claim Meg and Jack are in fact divorced from one another).
