Love wins for this Mean Girls star!

Jonathan Bennett and Jaymes Vaughan have officially gotten married after getting engaged back in November 2020. The two wed in a beautiful destination wedding in Mexico over the past weekend.

The Mean Girls and Lifetime Original Movie star and his TV host fiance have tied the knot after more than five years together.

"When you're part of the LGBTQ+ fam, not everything in the wedding space is for you yet," Vaughan said to People. "The whole purpose of our wedding is to come together and join the two of us together, join our families together and start a new family."

"And all that, as we were going through this process, we realized that our wedding is also more than just about us," Bennett added. "It's about the entire community."

The ceremony was officiated by one of Bennett's closest friends, YouTuber Bryan Tyler Cohen, and each groom wrote his own vows for the ceremony.

The two got engaged in November of 2020, while Bennett was filming the Hallmark Channel Christmas movie The Christmas House. Vaughan did all the engagement planning, even going as far as composing a song for the occasion.

"I took a melody that up until now had only be accompanied by chopsticks on my voice notes, and got together with my friend Tanzer, who happens to be a really talented producer and my favorite person to write songs with, and said 'Let's make this magical for Jonathan,'" Vaughan said. "From there we got a guitar, plucked it out, and just kept building and building and building until we ended up with this huge song that I knew was the one."

That song came back in the most perfect way, after the two grooms walked into the ceremony to the song.

"I got to marry my best friend! I knew we'd be emotional but I don't think either of us realized just how overwhelming that moment would be until we were in it," Vaughan said to People. "Seeing him crying only made me cry harder, and then our guests cry harder, and then we'd all start laughing, and then all back into crying."

"It was honestly a dream wedding! We kept having to stop and remind ourselves that we weren't on a movie set, but this was actually our real life," Bennett said. "If you had told me this was one of my Hallmark movie sets, I would have believed it. It was that perfect."
