Do you enjoy ceremonies where people profess their love for one another? Are you a fan of adorable children all dressed up and throwing flowers on the ground? Well then, you're going to really love the photos from Pippa Middleton and James Matthews' wedding on Saturday, May 20. The couple walked down the aisle before many of us in the U.S. were even waking up. That makes it all the more exciting that you'll get to start your day with wedding pictures that will give you such pure joy. Who knows, maybe you'll even shed a few happy tears. (No judgment here.)

While hopping on a plane to London is a little pricey, you can simply scroll through the photos from the big event and pretend like you were there. Plus, I hate to break it to you, but according to People, it was a "stunning private ceremony," meaning you pretty much had to be royalty (or you know, close to royalty) to be in attendance.

But again, don't feel bad — the photos seriously are almost as great as attending IRL. There's everything from pictures of Kate Middleton leading a group of kids to the ceremony, to snapshots of Kate's husband, Prince William, standing alongside his brother Prince Harry. And, of course, you can't forget about the newlyweds themselves.

Of course, Princess Charlotte stole the show at her aunt's wedding. Is that even a question?

Not only do we get a glimpse of the Duchess of Cambridge helping out her sister, but also there's a back view of that stunning dress.

To be quite honest, I don't know how this ceremony could've gone smoothly without Kate's help. Here she is again, keeping things in order.

Is there a sweeter wedding photo in existence? I think not.

I don't know about you, but I suddenly don't even mind that my invitation got lost in the mail. The pure joy in these wedding photos is contagious. Congrats to the newlyweds!
