Hallmark’s Jonathan Bennett Marries Jaymes Vaughan
In late March, Hallmark star Jonathan Bennett married his fiancé, Jaymes Vaughan in Mexico. Moreover, their flower girl was none other than Sharon Lawrence, Bennett’s Christmas House mom.
Lawrence wrote on her Instagram, ” When @jonathandbennett and @jaymesvasked me to be their flower girl, it was more than a sweet TV Mom moment, it was a symbolic honoring of RuthAnne, Jonathan’s mother, who loved white roses AND her dear son so much. The path of petals laid the way for the wedding party and although they have passed, we felt the presence of his parents as we celebrated the #bennettvaughn marriage. An honor indeed. ✨❤️”
On Tuesday, Danica McKellar shared her photos from the wedding on Instagram. McKeller and Bennett are very close friends and often share stories about each other on social media.
What she included was a video taken right after the ceremony. There, she confessed she cried “the entire time.” Her husband smiled and agreed.
She wrote, “My husband and I had the most wonderful time in Mexico – just over two weeks ago – and I finally got the photos I’ve been waiting for so I can share! 🤗
We got to witness the most incredibly pure and beautiful expression of love and commitment, watching my dear friend @jonathandbennett get married to the love of his life, @jaymesv. It was the kind of life-affirming ceremony that somehow manages to rekindle your own marriage. 💖 And it was the kind of spirited reception that leaves you with blisters on your feet from all the dancing! 💃🕺
Jonathan & Jaymes, I cannot thank you enough for including us in your chosen family to be a part of this sacred event! We love you so much! Here’s to a lifetime of happiness together!! ❤️”
