When I woke up, Ivy had already woken up and was asking the people to arrange the flowers neatly.
We were getting married in 6 hours.
“You go, I’ll tell them,” I say going next to Ivy.
“Thanks babe,” she says kissing me before leaving.
I honestly have no clue as to why people got so nervous and scared on their wedding.
I was calm as I already knew, 15 years ago that on day I will be marrying this lady who is going to be my wife in 5 hours 30 minutes.
I was getting married in 45 minutes. I was sitting there, completely dressed and I look at my bridesmaids, I had 3 maids of honours and 3 bridesmaids.
I made all of my bridesmaids my maid of hours because they all were there when I needed them. I couldn’t choose between them obviously.
They all looked good in the dresses I made.
I was waiting at the altar for my bride. My heart was about to pop out my chest. The suspense grew on as I waited for her.
The song started and all the bridesmaids and best men walked in.
I saw all of them go in the dresses Ivy had designed for them. It looked simple but elegant.
Our ring bearer, Noah walks alone, followed by the flower girls, they were Ivy’s and my side children of my family.
The song changed to a more serious and important one indicating that the bride was arriving.
All of the guest turn to look at her. My heart skipped a beat.
There was my bride, walking hand-in-hand with her father. She was in the most beautiful wedding gown I have ever seen. She truly did have magic in her hands.
She smiled at me and I was falling in love with her more if that’s even possible.
My tears start welling up and some spill out of my eyes.
I wipe them and help Ivy onto the altar.
Ivy and Zach wanted me to thank you all for being here and to recognize how important each and every one of you are to their relationship. They would also like to recognize all of those who couldn’t make it here today as they are certainly missed but not forgotten on this day of celebration. Speaking of important people, there were none more important in influencing the lives of Ivy and Zach than their parents. With that being said, who gives Ivy away in marriage to this man?” the Officiant, Elliot asked.
Her Father answers: “Her mother and I” and he let’s go of Ivy’s arm and gives it to me and goes and sits down.
Ivy gives her flowers to Kate and comes and stands in front of me and holds my hand.
“Dear friends and family, we are gathered here today to witness and celebrate the union of Ivy Kennecott and Zach Ryder in marriage. In the years they have been together, their love and understanding of each other has grown and matured and now they have decided to live their lives together as husband and wife” Elliot says.
“Ultimately there comes a moment when a decision must be made. Two people who love each other must ask themselves how much they hope for as their love grows and deepens, and how much risk they are willing to take. Commitment may well be a fearful gamble. Because it is the nature of love to create, a marriage itself is something which has to be created, the natural consequence of a love so strong, such that as we come together in marriage, we become a new creature- the love becoming one within,” My best man, Cosy says.
“Mr Ryder, do you have any vows to make?” the Elliot asked.
“Yes,” I say looking into her eyes. I didn’t need the sheet to promise her. I knew them by heart.
