They took “walking down the aisle” to the extreme.

A just-married Virginia couple made sure everyone was included in their bliss as they paraded down a Fredericksburg street with their full wedding party and marching band.

Nicole Monjure, 29, and Greg Monjure, 43, tied the knot last week in a Christams-themed wedding to pay homage to when Greg proposed to his future wife last year.

“We got married in front of a Christmas tree. The whole thing was just a joyous Christmas celebration,” gushed the blushing bride to Kennedy News and Media.

The 50-person wedding party completed the Hallmark moment by dancing in a New Orleans-style second-line parade.

According to one wedding guest, the newlyweds “ruined all weddings forever” as “this [one] is the best.”

“It’s a culture-filled, joy-filled atmosphere down there [in New Orleans], and we just wanted to bring that to Fredericksburg because we enjoy it here so much,” said Nicole.

Her husband echoed the statement, saying that he wanted the moment to “last forever.”

“It did feel in that moment like you want it to last forever, and you’re counting the seconds — but at the same time, you enjoy every second,” recalled Greg. “It feels great. When you think about having a Christmas or holiday wedding and bringing people together — we tear up a lot.”

One of the city’s council members captured the parade in a five-minute video and later described it as “fantastic.”

“It was a pretty busy holiday Saturday downtown, really bustling. Downtown Fredericksburg has such a great charm to it during the holidays, so it’s a joy to shop there,” Councilor Jon Gerlach told Kennedy News.

“Then out of the blue,” the councilman continued, “this bridal ‘second line’ procession dances down Caroline Street, our main downtown street, complete with a great horn section and the whole New Orleans vibe.”

“It’s a culture-filled, joy-filled atmosphere down there [in New Orleans], and we just wanted to bring that to Fredericksburg because we enjoy it here so much,” said Nicole.

“Everyone on the sidewalks just stopped in their tracks and watched and cheered,” continued Gerlach. “It was fantastic. I’m so glad we were downtown shopping at that very moment.”

Nicole remembers being on cloud nine for the entire day.

“It literally felt like I was on top of the world. [I was] just dancing carelessly and lovingly down the street with the man I am going to spend the rest of my life with,” she gushed. “Being cheered on by strangers, being surrounded by the love of my family — there are no words to describe how incredible, how truly magical that was.”

Nicole even said two people who were dressed as Santa Claus and the Grinch joined in the festive moment.

“We hope maybe we started something here. We hope that other people were inspired, and maybe they’ll do it for their weddings,” said Nicole.

“It’s a dream come true — we don’t just want it for us, we want it for everybody,” she said. “Anybody who could possibly have that experience.”
