Jonathan: He wrote me a song! We always heard songs and thought, « Oh, that would be our song if only this or that part was different. « So we didn’t have a song that was » ours « . «
Jaymes: While filming The Christmas House for Hallmark in Canada, I picked up a tune that was previously only accompanied by chopsticks on my voice memos and met up with my friend Tanzer, who happens to be a really talented producer and mine Favorite person I write songs with and said, “Let’s do this magically for Jonathan. From there we got a guitar, ripped it out and just kept building and building and building until we got to this huge song that I knew was the one. It’s amazing the magic that can happen to a friend and a guitar when you’re trying to create something that says someone you want to spend with them forever. Thank goodness he shot six weeks in Canada, otherwise I don’t know how I would have done it.
Jonathan: I was told we were going to take family Christmas card photos, so Jaymes’ photographer friend Eric (Ita) was here with my photographer nephew Andrew (Herner). . But then nobody would look me in the eye and I was like what’s going on? I found out later because they didn’t want to spoil what was going to happen.
My sister called out to me to get outside « real quick » and my F. . Ö. M.. . Ö. entered, so I ran outside. Then I looked over and saw Jaymes a sign that said, « We never found our song, so I wrote it for you. ». « That’s when I knew it was suggested because it was the same kind of mark he made when he told me he loved me for the first time. And then I started crying ugly for the ugliest scream anyone has ever cried.
Jonathan: And then I heard a song play from a place I didn’t even know we had a speaker and Jaymes told me to just listen. It was Jaymes’ voice that sang the most beautiful song I had ever heard, a song about our relationship. I’ve always loved his voice and it was really special to hear his voice sing to me. It’s hard to describe what it feels like to have written a song about you that is so specific and soothes all of your insecurities. It was the best song I’ve ever heard.

Jaymes: Every single part of the song was personal to Jonathan. Every text, even the structure of the melody, was designed just as I knew he would sing it back to me. He’s got this really cute way of singing things to me. I just wanted him to feel like that special person in those three minutes that he first heard the song.
Jonathan: And I did. And then I had to go to him and just thought, when did our garden get so big? It felt like I was walking in slow motion.
Jaymes: I just remember how he started crying and every single nerve that I was gone and I went into protector mode and just held onto him. I actually thought I was going to be the one who was a mess, but something about seeing him like this made a switch flip inside me.
Jonathan: I have a hard time really remembering the rest because I think my body has just decided to go black and cry ugly. I just cried ugly. But I just remember feeling right at home. I knew from the moment I saw him with the sign I was suggested to. Why else would you play a song with my family in our garden with a sign with my family and your friend and my nephew would film it?
Jaymes: I dreamed of proposing something to Jonathan for a long time. I wanted to make sure someone was holding onto everything so I could keep seeing their face at that moment.
Jonathan: When I saw Jaymes get down on my knees, I was so excited that I started screaming in hysterics because I didn’t know how to properly express myself. There was a moment when you felt like, « Oh, this is forever, I get it. « I immediately screamed » yes « . Actually it was: “Yes! Naturally! ”
Jonathan: It literally just happened. But between the song and the ring I can say that it is very comforting because there is no doubt what my future will be. When I look at the ring, the words of the song become real.
Jonathan: I love the way he makes me feel. I feel safe and I feel loved when I am with him.
Jaymes: I love how he keeps me busy. There is literally never a dull moment when Jonathan Bennett is your other half.
Jonathan: I love the way I can apologize to myself and I love that he loves me unconditionally for it.
Jaymes: I think the special thing about our relationship is that we’re first and foremost each other’s best friends. And it’s fun to look at too!
Jonathan: What we have is really something special. It’s the thing that people make films about, or in this case, write songs about. I think we both have known since the day we met on the set at Jaymes’ show that we would be each other’s person. It feels like the family is with him. I feel like there is nothing in the world that we cannot achieve when we are together.
Jaymes: We have always said « two kings, one kingdom » about our relationship. « And I think that’s one of the things that make us strongest. If you know your partner, so will your teammate.
Jonathan: I imagine something between the flight from Elphaba in the musical Wicked and the final number in The Greatest Showman.
Jonathan: Or we could simplify it and I could just come out on a hydraulic stage from underground like Elle Woods does in Legal Blonde: The Musical.
Jaymes: See – he always keeps me busy. That doesn’t happen either. But to be honest, everything that puts a smile on his face.
