Shay Shariatzadeh and John Cena will never forget that day.
21 months after their initial marriage in Florida, the couple remarried on Friday at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The WWE superstar was captured by TMZ entering the members-only Vancouver Club with his wife while sporting a navy blue suit. Shariatzadeh donned a white halter-neck dress with an open back and floral accents that were visible from the rear.
The site of the wedding is particularly significant because Cena, 45, first met Shariatzadeh in her home country of Canada while working on the Vancouver set of his upcoming comedy Playing with Fire.
According to court records obtained by PEOPLE, Cena and Shariatzadeh wed on October 12, 2020, in Tampa, Florida, with a short ceremony at the downtown office of the celebrant, lawyer Dilip Patel.
Following the original wedding, a source in the entertainment industry told PEOPLE that when Cena first met Shariatzadeh, an engineer, “it was love at first sight.”
“The insider claimed, “He is romantic, so the [private ceremony] wasn’t a surprise. The couple anticipated they would be married. He merely desired to carry it out in private.”
Born in Iran and raised in Canada, where she was employed by enterprise software provider Sonatype at the time of the initial wedding, Shariatzadeh is “clever, has her own life and job, and thinks for herself,” according to the source.
The insider continued that Cena is “challenged” by her qualities. He was mesmerized by her.
On the red carpet for the Playing with Fire premiere in October 2019, Cena said to Entertainment Tonight, “I have a lovely date. It’s a perfect day for a movie premiere.”
No matter what projects I work on in the future, this one will always hold special importance for me since I got to film a special project and meet a special person, he said.
At the time, the actor also said to Extra, “The evening is perfect for going to the movies. I’m here with a unique companion.”
