Jill Martin poked fun at the similarities between her love life and Carrie Bradshaw’s when she recreated a classic scene from “Sex and the City: The Movie.”

Martin poked fun at her and Brooks’ bumpy way down the aisle in a video she posted Sept. 30 to Instagram. The short clip shows the TV personality in her wedding dress at the New York Public Library – the same place Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker) was supposed marry Mr. Big (Chris Noth).

Martin’s video shows Carrie in her wedding dress in the same library on what was supposed to be her wedding day. Carrie talks on her flip phone to Mr. Big, who is called to say he is giving up on their wedding ceremony.

The video then moves to show Martin wearing her wedding dress inside the library, talking on a dated phone.

Impersonating Carrie right after hearing Big’s bad news, Martin drops his cell phone on the floor, looking devastated.

Of course, Martin and Brooks got married and now live happily ever after, as her video continues to show fans.

“Just kidding! He’s right there,” exclaims a smiling Martine as her pals put on her veil as Brooks walks up in his tuxedo.

The video ends by showing footage of the couple heading down the aisle, where Brooks dunks his new bride after saying “yes.”

In her caption, Martin joked about why she felt a kinship with Carrie.

“I HAVE TO do this, don’t I? 1) My wedding was AT THE LIBRARY. 2) I was marrying MY MAN. I grew up watching (and still watch) the original Sex & the City “, she wrote.

“3) I borrowed my friend’s flip phone and 4) we already broke up once (long enough for me to laugh NOW),” she added.

“Will I have an acting career in my future? Cue: dramatic phone call,” Martin joked.

Martin and Brooks were married on September 10, with Martin’s father, Marty, an officer. In a sweet twist, Marty and Martin’s mother, Georgette, walked their daughter down the aisle.

Martin and Brooks started dating in 2017 and got engaged in 2019. However, the following year the couple called off their engagement, explaining that it had been difficult being in a long-distance relationship.

But true love isn’t so easily thwarted as Martin and Brooks (and Carrie and Big) later learned. In 2021, the couple got back together and announced they were engaged again in November.
