White marries Karen Elson, a model who appears in the White Stripes’ music video for Blue Orchid. The band’s manager Ian Montone serves as White’s best man with drummer Meg White as Elson’s maid of honor. The ceremony is confirmed by the band’s publicist:
Karen Elson and Jack White were married…on the confluence of three rivers — the Rio Negro, the Solimones and the Amazon … by a traditional shaman priest on a canoe at the exact point where the three rivers met. … The ceremony was immediately followed by a blessing by a priest at a Catholic cathedral called Igreja Matric.
