Ryan + Jaime | Just Married
WHAT. A. CELEBRATION.
When I met these two at their engagement photos (click here), I called my mom right after to tell her how much I loved them. LOL You KNOW that’s real love. They are just so nice, they have the best sense of humor, and basically, two people you want to know. I asked Jaime what her favorite moment of the day was, and she said:
My favorite memory of the day...oh boy let's see. So the #1 man in my life, my dad, has just announced Ryan and I for the first time as Mr. and Mrs. Balazy! Ryan and I walk down the aisle literally with the biggest smiles on our faces--like the most surreal moment of our lives. As we walk by the last row of people he looks at me and goes "Jaim, we're MARRIED" and I kind of just look at him after he says it and we keep walking. At the end of our aisle there were giant green hedges leading out of the courtyard, him and I walk down and around those, so were hidden... and for :30 seconds -maybe- it's just him and I and I just start sobbing--but the good kind of crying. I cried and just hugged him. It was in that moment that I realized all that had just happened. All of the planning, all of those people who traveled to come share this day with us, my own dad not only walking me down to marry the man of my dreams, BUT MARRYING US TOO, and now i'm standing outside this beautiful venue...married, to the most wonderful person on this earth. I'm certain that everyone's "moment" hits them at different points during their wedding day and it's a bit unexpected, but that was mine. Just after the ceremony, as I rounded the hedges with my new husband. It's almost an indescribable feeling...but I know it's the same one I had when Ryan proposed. :)
SO MUCH HAPPINESS. Enjoy, XOXOX
