SAINT ANDREWS, N.B. — Canada's youngest premier is officially off the market after tying the knot.

Premier Brian Gallant, who is in his mid-30s, got married in St. Andrews, N.B. on Friday evening.

Gallant announced the nuptials on social media on Sunday, and his office later confirmed the details.

The post includes a photo of the newlyweds strolling down a tree-lined path amidst the changing fall colours, Gallant wearing a blue tux and red bowtie, and his bride carrying a bouquet.

In a tweet, Gallant described his newlywed spouse, Karine Lavoie, "the most thoughtful, generous, and patient person I know."

Although they both grew up in Shediac Bridge, N.B., the two met on a blind date set up by mutual friends.

The couple announced their engagement in March.
