It was a day to remember for John Cena and Shay Shariatzadeh. The couple tied the knot for the second time in Vancouver on Friday (July 15), at the Rosewood Hotel Georgia, 21 months after they first married at an attorney's office in Florida. The wedding location is especially sentimental as Cena had met Shariatzadeh in her native land of Canada on the sets of his 2019 comedy film Playing with Fire which was filmed in Vancouver.

The couple had tied the knot nearly 2 years ago on 12 October 2020, in Tampa, Florida, with a small ceremony at the downtown office of attorney Dilip Patel, who served as the officiant. Following the original nuptials of 2020, a source revealed that "it was love at first sight" for Cena when he met Shariatzadeh, who is an engineer. It was further added, "He is a romantic. We knew they would marry, so the wedding was not a surprise. He just wanted to do it out of the limelight."

Shariatzadeh was born in Iran and raised in Canada, where she was working at the time of the initial wedding for enterprise software company Sonatype. A source revealed, "She is smart, has her own life and career, and thinks for herself. Cena was dazzled by her and her attributes are what challenged him".

In October 2019, Cena told Entertainment Tonight while on the red carpet for the premiere of Playing with Fire, "It's a wonderful day for a movie premiere and I got a beautiful date. What is truly special about this one is that no matter what projects I am involved in the future, this one will always have a special meaning because I got to film a special project and meet someone special", he said.
