It had been an eventful year for Guyart even before her wedding.
She had been training hard to compete for Team France in the Olympics in Tokyo this past summer, but she was also one of 186 international members of Team LGBTQ+.
All that hard work and training paid off with a silver medal performance.
But Olympic glory was in the background as Guyart and Lavet only had eyes for each other on the day of their wedding.
"There are awakenings where you realize you've just had the happiest day of your life," she wrote of the moment she and Lavet tied the knot.
Guyart also said she had "underestimated the emotion of this day, the pure joy, the complete happiness, the sweet madness of having all of your loved ones reunited and delighted to be so to celebrate love until the early hours of the morning."
Appropriately, enough, the pair had a rainbow-colored cake, with Lego figures of themselves on top of the white-frosted dessert.
"I had no idea that the day after a wedding love could be even stronger than the day before," Guyart wrote. (We're not crying, you are.)
Best wishes to Astrid and Julie for a long and happy life together!
