The moment we've been waiting for has finally arrived. After falling hopelessly in love on ABC's The Bachelor, Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici tied the knot in a live televised wedding ceremony on January 26, 2014. This happy couple have had more than a year to think about what they wanted to say to each other on this emotional day, and their vows were nothing short of beautiful.
Both Sean and Catherine wrote their own vows, ruminating on the love they have for one another while making sure to give a few shoutouts to The Man Upstairs. We all know how much Sean loves JC, guys!
So, what did these lovebirds have to say on the alter? Catherine's musings to Sean were heartfelt, hilarious, and over-the-top adorable. "Before I met you, before I even knew you existed, I knew you were coming," she told Sean while holding back tears. "I was ready to give my whole heart to someone, and now here you are. The first time I saw you, you were like a light to my bug. I had to find you. You mesmerized me with how brightly you shone. Every time I look up at you, my heart fills with love sprinkles. Every time I kiss you, my whole body feels it. Sometimes I feel like I'm going to explode from how much I love you. I am completely consumed by you, and tonight we get to become one. I promise to love you until after my heart bursts. I promise to love you after our children are old and gray, I promise to love you after we can't even remember our own names. I will still know how fully I have loved you. You're my dream and my reality, my future and my present. My whole heart and my best friend. I thank God for bringing me to you, instilling that light so I could find you. I thank God for bringing you to me and igniting that same light. I can't wait to shine together and make everybody completely blind. I love you."
Hard to top that, right? Wrong. Sean kept his vows spiritual and sweet — much like his personality. "From the moment I met you, I wanted more," he told Catherine as they held hands. "I wanted more of your infectious smile, I wanted more of your adorable giggle and I wanted more of your love. You had me hooked from the beginning and I didn't want to let you go. We met in the strangest way you can possibly meet someone. On The Bachelor, with an army of people following us around with cameras, but I know that wasn't by accident. God says that all things work together for the good of those who love him. I know that we met on The Bachelor so that I could fall in love with my best friend. Every day I am encouraged by your love and your selflessness, and as your husband I promise to always put you first. I promise to be the best father I can be to our children, and I promise to always make you laugh with my silly faces and ridiculous voices. So today, in front of my dad, my family, all of our friends, I want to say that I love you and I'm gonna love you for eternity."
Annnnnd, we're crying all over our keyboard. Thank God for prison tattoos, because SeanCat's vows will be forever inked on our bodies in the form of a giant tramp stamp.
