Lindsay and Jean-Paul have a storybook love. The kind that you dream about when you imagine a forever partner. Being in their presence makes your heart hurt, in the best way. It’s a yearning of sorts.Their wedding was one of the rare weddings that didn’t have a first look. And although I usually encourage first looks, I have to admit that seeing Jean-Paul’s face when he saw Lindsay coming down the aisle was pretty fantastic.

Here’s a look at their joyous day!
