Hi Joanne. I'm not related to this family. Looking at Christine's marriage record found in the Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1967, this is what I read:

Emmanuel Ferdinand Couillard (Emmanuel Couillard & Octave Dehaitre)
m. 9 Jan 1877 Thurso (St-Jean-L'Evangeliste), Papineau County
Christiane Lamothe (Louis Lamothe & Christiane Chenier)

Here is Christine's baptism:

Christine Lamothe, b. 17 Sep, bap 21 Sep 1856 St-André-Avellin, Papineau County, Quebec, daughter of Louis Lamothe & Christine Chenier -godparents- William Chenier & Rosalie Labourier.

And for some of her siblings:

Gustave David Lamothe, b. 23 May, bap 30 May 1858 St-André-Avellin, son of Louis Lamothe & Christine Chenier -godparents- Francois-Xavier Chene & Rose Bellanger.

Adelina Lamothe, b. 17 Dec, bap 21 Dec 1861 Papineauville, (St-Angelique), Papineau County, Quebec, daughter of Louis Lamothe & Christine Chenier -godparents- Cyrille Couville? & Marguerite Chenier.

And Adelina's twin sister,

Emilie Lamothe, b. 17 Dec, bap 21 Dec 1861 Papineauville, (St-Angelique), daughter of Louis Lamothe & Christine Chenier -godparents- Louis Chenier & ?

Joseph Lamothe, b. 5 Mar, bap 13 Mar 1864 St-André-Avellin, son of Louis Lamothe, living in Reipon, & Christine Chenier. -godparents- Gregoire Malette & Julie Girard.

She also had a brother Louis Lamothe who married Celina Binette, daughter of Narcisse Binette & Marie Dubois on 9 Sep 1876 in Thurso..

Unfortunately the parish records in Papineauville are sometimes not legible, so that may be why there is a problem finding the record you seek.

This is probably the family in 1871:

This family ended up in Michigan as you probably already know:

Celina B. Lamaut 25 -dau in law- b. 1855 Canada; Boarding
Maggie Lamaut        7m -dau- b. Dec 1879 Canada

A public family tree has the following info:

Louis Lamothe (Jean-Baptiste Lamothe & Marie Rose Marion)
Christine Chenier (Louis Chenier & Angelique Brunet)

If so, here are the next marriages in the lines:

Jean Lamotte (Jean Lamotte & Charlotte Laforge)
m. 13 Aug 1822 St-Jacques-l`Achigan, Montcalm County, Que.
Marie Rose Marion (Antoine Marion & Elizabeth Dupuis)

Louis Chenier (Joseph Chenier & Marie Rose Brabau?)
m. 17 Jan 1814 Les Cèdres (St-Joseph-de-Soulanges), Soulanges County, Quebec
Marie Desanges Brunette dite Bourbonnaise (Paul Brunette dit Bourbonnaise & Marie Josephte Lalonde)

There is a baptism for Louis Lamotte/Lamothe that matches:

Louis Lamotte, b. 24 May, bap 25 May 1830 St-Jacques-l`Achigan, son of Baptiste Lamotte & Marie Rose Marion. -godparents- Germain Terriot, cousin of the baby, & Louise Leblanequi?

Jean, Jean-Baptiste & Baptiste were sometimes used interchangeably in the parish records..

Hope this helps. Annie
