“If you’re part of the LGBTQ+ family, not everything in the wedding space is for you. The whole purpose of our marriage is to come together and bring the two of us together, bring our families together and start a new family,” Jaymes said.

Jonathan added, “And as we went through that process, we realized that our wedding is also about more than just us. It’s about the whole community.”

Jaymes and Jonathan aim to create a new and meaningful tradition for the LGBTQ+ community. The classic band features round cut diamonds adorning the profile of one side of the ring.

“The diamonds then face us because my world is exponentially more beautiful now that you’re in it forever,” Jaymes said on the Kay website.

“It really was a dream wedding! We had to keep stopping and reminding ourselves that we weren’t on a movie set, but that was actually our real life. If you had told me this was one of my Hallmark movie sets, I would have believed it. It was so perfect,” Bennett told People.
