Despite her being unsure of the relationship at different points in the season, Giannina told Damian, “I do” after they exchanged vows on their wedding day. Damian, however, said, “I do not.”

“I do love you. Since day one, I’ve wanted this, I wanted to marry you. I have. I’ve stayed consistent all the way through this. And you have not. I can’t handle the ups and downs of you loving me one day and saying you want to be friends the next,” he told her at the altar.

“I did not,” Giannina quietly interjected.

“It would be selfish of me to marry you today knowing, as much as you tell me you’re ready, I see that you’re not,” Damian continued, at which point his fiancé ran out of the building.

“That was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Even though she was all-in today. It was one… it’s one day she’s been all-in, through everything we’ve been through. And I respect it. I love that. It made me… I wasn’t sure if she was going to say yes, and when she did it melted my heart and broke it at the same time because in that moment I was like, ‘This isn’t right,'” Damian told his friends. “Because she’s saying yes, but everything she’s showed me, her actions, her words, everything otherwise, said that she is not ready for marriage.”

“It sucks. But I need somebody that’s all-in every day. Not just some,” he told the camera.

However, as Love Is Blind fans witnessed during the reunion, Giannina and Damian found their way back to each other after their unsuccessful wedding.

“hey guys meet my ex-fiancé, almost husband, now boyfriend 💛 this was one of the first pictures we ever took together after getting used to having our phones back, it was such a special day and one that got the 🦋 back! our love story hasn’t been the typical love-at-first sight-happy-ending and I wouldn’t trade every minute spent together for the world, no matter how tough it got. this is us and I want to thank you so much for following our journey, it’s only just begun,” Giannina posted on Instagram of her and Damian’s reunion.
