People’s interview with Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon about their wedding is seriously, like, the best thing ever sprinkled with many, many moments of gooey cheese, butterflies, and cotton candy…just like Mimi!

Some of my favourite parts:

People: When did you first know that (you two had a connection)?
Nick: I"d always admired Mariah from afar, but once we connected I felt it was destined: This has to be my wife.
Mariah: I definitely knew. Of course, everyone is running the photo from the 2005 Teen Choice Awards...
Nick: From then on, I thought, "I have to get closer to her and express my true feelings." I was praying I"d have the chance to share them with her.
Mariah: People were very skeptical and told him, "You can never get past her people." I only knew that he"d say nice things about me. So I thanked him when [I saw him again].
Nick: I said, "I meant every single word. Hopefully I can express more to you." She was down-to-earth. From that point, we built a friendship.

YOU CAN NEVER GET PAST HER PEOPLE??? I f*cking love her.

How they finally discovered their love:
Mariah: I told people, "I like him and want him to do it." The song was a love story. It was perfect for us.
Nick: From the first time we sat down to discuss the video at the Beverly Hills Hotel, we connected. We had so much in common spiritually, and we laugh at the same things. I didn"t have to put on my Mac Daddy suave mode. I was able to be myself with her. We are both eternally 12 years old.
Mariah: [Laughing] We were having a such a good time on the shoot.
Nick: I brought her little pieces of candy. I"d write little third-grade notes instead of being over-the-top.
Mariah: He wrote the note, "Will you be my girlfriend?" with boxes for yes or no. In the video, we"re boyfriend and girlfriend. It seemed very natural.

Family and friends" reaction to their marriage:
Mariah: Some were, but some weren"t. One thing [few people] knew was we got tattoos a few weeks earlier. So anyone who saw my [Mrs. Cannon] tattoo wasn"t surprised.
Nick: To me rings are special and exciting, but tattoos mean more than anything. They"re forever and ever. They professed our love.
Mariah: And they hurt!
Nick: A lot.

Tattoos are forever and ever. They mean more than anything.

Can you get enough of this sh*t? Mimi and Nick are nothing short of amazing.

Here they are last night in New York after dinner at the Waverly showing off their new hardware. His ring is actually almost nicer than hers. Am all over her dress.
