They may have had stilt-walkers and mimes, but the thing Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul found most amazing about his May 26 wedding to anti-bullying activist and filmmaker Lauren Parsekian were the words she quietly spoke to him at the altar. Standing in front of 250 guests at the Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, “she whispered to me, ‘I feel like I can fly,’ ” says Paul, 33. “It was pretty magical.”

The evening capped off a weekend of over-the-top festivities for the pair, who were engaged in Paris in 2011. Guests such as Paul’s Breaking Bad costar Bryan Cranston and Dita Von Teese dressed to match a Parisian carnival theme, and David Blaine performed magic tricks. After dinner the actor’s pal John Mayer sang “Daughters” for the bride’s dance with her father (“There was not a dry eye in the house,” says Parsekian, 26). Waking up the next morning as husband and wife “was blissful,” she says. Adds Paul: “I’ve been calling Lauren my wife since before we started dating. Now it just feels like everything is right in the world.”
