Chapter Eighteen: The Wedding
last two and a half months had been spent with Kyle buying me a small
bouquet of flowers nearly everyday, and of us putting the finishing
touches to our wedding, which just happened to be today.
It was April 2nd 2016, and today was the day when I would finally be tied to Kyle in every way possible and legally for the rest of our lives.
We were getting married at twilight, outside in Kyle's parents back garden, we didn't want the media to find out that Kyle was now married, so Kyle had managed to get us a minister that would come to the Blake's house at 7PM, and we would be married by 7:30PM.
It was 11AM, and all of us girls had been up and about for about thirty minutes, the hairdressers and make-up artists weren't due to be here until at least 1:30PM, so we still had a few hours.
Marie and Ila were going to be dressed last, because they were the youngest, and are the ones that would most likely get dirty first.
It was finally 6:30pm, the bridesmaids and Katie, my maid of honour, were all dressed in teal dresses and silver shoes and Marie and Ila were wearing their cream dresses and sparkly silver shoes and now we were all heading to the Blake's house, in a taxi, so that no-one would suspect anything, from Katie and Miles' apartment, as the boys were getting ready at mine and Kyle's apartment.
I was also finally dressed in the wedding dress that I had been dreaming about since before I met Kyle, it was white and it wasn't a tight fit, but it did flare out a little bit as it flowed down to the floor, I was even wearing a pair of white, with a bit of silver, 1 ½ inch heels, the bow under the bust line, made it no need for straps or sleeves.
We arrived at the Blake's house at ten to seven and we were all quick ushered into the kitchen, where all of the blinds had been pulled down, so that no-one could see in or out, or so that Kyle didn't see me, but that didn't stop me from looking around for him, as we made our way through the house. Christopher, who was stood waiting by the living room door way, saw me looking around and smiled at me when I looked back at him.
"He's waiting for you outside" He told me, knowing exactly who I was looking for.
I smiled back at Christopher and then held my arm out for him, "So, are you ready to walk your little sister down the aisle?"
He looped his arm through mine and led me the rest of the way to the kitchen as he answered, "No, but I don't think I ever will be"
I smiled up at him, "You're such a girl, now hurry up and walk me down the aisle to the guy that I love"
Music started playing just as Christopher spoke, "My little sister's all grown up"
"Shut up." We both smiled at each other, before he started to led me out of the back door just as the music changed to the traditional wedding march, following the trail of white and teal roses that Marie and Ila left along the grass.
I smiled when I spotted Kyle waiting at the end of the aisle for me, and when we made eye contact, both of our smiles widen. I quickly took in what he was wearing, a completely black suit, tie and shoes, a white shirt and a teal rose pinned to his jacket.
We made it to the end of the aisle, in what felt like ten minutes, but was probably less two, and then Christopher placed my hand in Kyle's, before placing a quick kiss on my forehead, then taking his seat.
Kyle and I smiled at each other as the minister began to speak.
"Dearly Beloved we are..."
The rest of the ceremony past in a blur, my main focus was on the love of my life, stood in front of me, stroking my hands softly.
"Do you Kyle Lloyd Blake take..."
"I do" Kyle spoke softly, smiling at me and squeezed my hands gently.
"And do you Rosetta Alyssa Kane take..."
"I do" I crocked out, I could hear the tears, of happiness, in my voice.
"Then I now pronounce you husband and wife, you may kiss the bride"
Kyle gently creased my face, "I love you" he whispered.
"I love you too" And then he kissed me softly, in front of all of our friends and family, but I didn't really mind, because I knew that I was going to be spending the rest of my life with the man stood in front of me, the man that I love, as his wife.
We were broken from our kiss by the sounds of everyone clapping loudly and cheering. We both pulled back, but kept our foreheads rested together, and smiled at each other.
Our first dance was 'A Thousand Years' by Christina Perri. And I then danced with my brother to 'You Raise Me Up' by Westlife, before the real party began.
Our flight left at four in the morning, so just after midnight we said our goodbyes to our family and friends before we headed off on our honeymoon.
