Blessthefall’s Beau Bokan Gets Married to Singer Lights
Blessthefall frontman Beau Bokan and Canadian electropop singer Lights have officially tied the knot. The two announced their engagement late last year and were married on Saturday, May 12.
We recently reported on the two announcing their wedding plans, where Bokan spoke about the chaotic nature of planning a wedding for two touring musicians. “She tours, as well, so with our crazy schedules it’s tough. We may have to wait until right after summer because we plan on playing the Warped Tour this year. She lives in Toronto and I think I may be settling up there eventually; it’s an option.”
As Bokan mentioned, Blessthefall will be on the bill for this year’s Warped Tour beginning June 16 in Salt Lake City, Utah, in support of their most recent album ‘Awakening.’
Bokan also sung Lights’ praises during a 2011 interview with Noisecreep: ”Lights is an amazing artist. She has a new album out that came out the exact same day as ‘Awakening,’ which was incredible – totally not planned. It’s called ‘Siberia’ and I’m so proud of both her record and ours. It’s a crazy world to be a part of what I do and also to enjoy her music as well with her. We’re both chasing the same dream and both supporting each other so much.”
As of now, the newlyweds have not been writing music together, although Bokan feels that it is “inevitable.” Open to the idea, Bokan says that the two “promised each other we couldn’t do it unless it came naturally.”
The two have kept relatively quiet since the ceremony, but both musicians tweeted small pieces of news to fans, which you can see below, followed by a link to photos of the wedding.
