Our real bride blogger, Lauren Scruggs, has told us all about the excitement leading up to her wedding day, but now her new husband Jason Kennedy has confessed he was thinking about their nuptials for a long time, too! In an interview with People, the E! News co-host explained how he had to fight back tears when he finally saw Scruggs walking down the aisle.

"This is a moment I imagined happening my whole life," he said. "It just felt so right with Lauren. I honestly thought I was going to lose it. My groomsmen were giving me a hard time. They were like, 'Don't do the ugly baby cry!'"

Scruggs walked down the aisle to Amos Lee's "Sweet Pea" which was more than enough to move the groom to tears. "I was just trying to not completely cry my eyes out," Kennedy said.

While the day was as magical and exciting as the pair could have imagined, it didn't come without its hiccups. Just two hours before the ceremony was set to begin, Kennedy's mom fell and dislocated her hip. "She was rushed to the emergency room and it took two surgeons to get her hip back in place," he explains. "Minutes before they opened the door for me to walk down the aisle with the pastors, my mom comes around the corner in a wheelchair with my dad pushing her." He sweetly said that she still looked like "a million bucks" despite her unintended wedding accessory.

Scruggs was overcome with emotion during the evening, too. "Everyone came to celebrate with us... and the effort that people was so special."

The pair is now enjoying a sunny beach honeymoon in Mexico, but for more scoop on their wedding day, check out Lauren's big-day blogs here!
