Eva and Michael had a whopping 220 guests, including their kiddos, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house — if you’re a fan of the show, you probably remember the lovely ceremony.
“Growing up I was not the girl who had the idea of a fairytale wedding. But now I am just overwhelmed with emotion,” Eva told her husband during their wedding vows. “To be at this place today with an amazing man? What did I do to deserve this amount of favor and blessings?”

“I vow that you will never be alone because no matter where you go, my love will always be with you,” Michael said in his own vows. “And when God sees fit to take us from this place, I promise you that I will ask Her that she will let me be with you in this next life. Because I don’t want to imagine this life or any life without you.” Such a beautiful wedding, through and through!

“I said, ‘Marley, would you like to have a little brother or sister?’ And she said, ‘Yes, Mom, but you know what? Maybe a baby brother. Make it a brother,’” she remembered the moment between herself and her daughter.

She loved her daughter’s thought process, until something dawned on her: “I thought that was adorable, but at the time, I had no idea what I was having, so my fear [about] this extremely expressive and outgoing young girl [was] if this baby came out to be a little girl, that might not be a great situation for Marley.” Luckily, they didn’t have to worry about that.
