Montreal Canadiens winger Josh Anderson is a married man.

The Burlington native tied the knot with Paolo Finizio in a stunning wedding ceremony held last weekend in Puglia, Italy.

An Instagram reel of the special day was shared by the couple’s wedding photographer.

“What a dream day for (Josh Anderson) and (Paolo Finizio),” said Amarilis Photography on Instagram. “They flew from Canada to Puglia with family and many friends to give shape to their dream.”

The couple, who got engaged in May of 2023, celebrated in the gorgeous outdoor venue with family and friends, dancing the night away.

“After so many preparations, the dream came true!” continued the Instagram post. “He is a hockey played for the Canadian national team and she is a physiotherapist. Surrounded by many friends and Italian-Canadian families, they made the Itria valley vibrate with the sound of beats and laughter!”

The 30-year-old Anderson spent six seasons with the Columbus Blue Jackets before being traded to the Montreal Canadiens, where he has played the last four seasons.
