Chapter Fifteen - Stephen’s POV
I am stood there still mesmerised by my doll. I have just married the love of my life and I can not keep my hands or eyes off her right now.
As I bought her back up to me after sealing our union with a kiss I softly ran my hands up the side of her body under her armpits and gently lifted her up off the ground.
As I raised her up to me I captured her lips again with my own landing kiss after kiss on her lips, I honestly could not get enough of her.
I didn't care that all our friends and loved ones were around I just wanted my wife, nothing else in this world. I could hear everyone else cheering but all I could focus on was her beautiful face and the smile that was lighting up her face.
Trinity - Baby, I think you need to put me down now
Stephen - Never
I bring her lips to mine again as she wraps her arms around my neck and I slowly let her down still holding her close to my body.
I grab her delicate hand in mine and we start making our way back down the isle as our friends and loved ones congratulate us all the way.
We head back up to the winery pavilion and slip out to a side room for a moment of quiet while everyone else gets ready to head in for the reception. We are waiting for our bridal party to join us then we will head out into the vineyards for some photos.
The moment we get in that room away from everyone I can't help but pick her up in my arms again.
I am just holding her beautiful body close to mine, my head resting on her chest over her heart, my arms wrapped under her gorgeous butt holding her tight.
She wraps her arms around my shoulders, her fingers softly stroking into the back of my hair and down to my neck and I feel her tender lips kissing the top of my head softly. I feel my doll's hands gently reach down for my face, cupping it softly and lifting my head to look up at her.
She grabs my lips between hers and kisses me with so much love I can't help the tears that fall from my eyes again
Without hesitation I open letting her in, letting her take all of me, for all eternity.
Our tongues become one moving in perfect sync with each other, slowly and deliberately savouring every moment of this kiss. I slowly start walking forward until I have her pushed up against the wall in front of me.
I slide her down a little bit so her face is level with my own and continue to make love to my wife's gorgeous mouth.
Our tongues swirling with each other, becoming one, the world disappearing around us as we get lost in each other. I feel her beautiful hands digging tighter into my shoulders, coming up over my collar bone up to my neck where she wraps her fingers around the back of my neck pulling my face closer to her.
I gently place her to the ground and feel one of her hands come down to my back gripping my suit jacked and using the small of my back to push me closer to her. My hands gripping the fabric of her dress that fits her like a glove at her hips as I bend my knees slightly to come down to her.
We are completely lost in each other, our worlds merging as one, both breathless and desperate to hold each other. The moment I hear that sexy little purr of hers escape her lips I have to pull back and control myself or this could be a slippery slope to come back from.
I slow the kiss down and gently start kissing her lips up the side of one cheek across her nose and down the other cheek.
Stephen - mmm baby you got to stop purring right now or I am about to lose it
I stop kissing her and take her face in my hands as we stare at each other trying to control our breathing.
Trinity - Sorry baby, I just get so lost in you sometimes I forget where I am.
I pull her back into me just holding her head close to my heart, her arms wrapped around my waist and mine protectively around her just enjoying a moment holding each other.
I don't know how long we were stood there like that when I heard the door open and Clint, Dave, Mia and Luke came in with the photographer.
They each hug us tightly and congratulate us again as we make our way out to get some photos taken. I am feeling a little overwhelmed but every time I feel her beauty next to me or her touch on my skin I instantly feel at ease again.
We make our way back up to the pavilion and the reception area looks stunning - Classy and elegant just like my wife.
Stephen - You are amazing doll, I can't believe you organised all of this.
Trinity - You give me too much credit baby, I had a lot of help.
Stephen - And you underestimate yourself.
We kiss softly
Stephen - Shall we do this?
She nods at me as she grabs my hand between both of hers and I lead her in to everyone's cheering.
We all enjoy a beautiful meal and plenty of drinks and laughs that follow. I am thankful that both boys, Clint and Luke kept their speeches PG for once, and when I look to Trinity I can see she is thinking the same thing.
Finally it is my time to get up and thank our guests, as I stand I pull her up to my hip standing side by side as I wrap my arm around her waist and hers around my back as she strokes my chest.
Stephen - First of all, thank you to you all for your kind wishes and I would like to say that it is a privilege to be here today with this woman. Distinguished guests, and those of no distinction at all
I cough saying
Stephen - Clint!
Everyone bursts out laughing,
Stephen - Friends, freeloaders, hangers on and any strays who may have wandered in from the vineyards, welcome to our wedding dinner. Someone once told me a good speech has both a good beginning and a good ending, however a great speech keeps them very close together. Well unfortunately this speech is neither good nor great, so make yourselves comfortable. And yes, security is positioned at all the exits so don't even think about it.
Everyone laughs again and my doll slaps me on the butt.
Stephen - Now seriously I had a cracking speech prepared with humour, emotion and sentiment but as I am now married, Trinity has given me a speech to read instead.
I look to my wife and wink as most of the men in the room cheer in agreement.
Stephen - It is hard to express our feelings on this special day but it wouldn't be such a special day without the presence of our friends and loved ones. Trinity and I are humbled and greatly honoured that so many of you have made the effort to be with us here and share this day with us. So on behalf of Trinity and myself, I would like to thank you all
Stephen - I would like to thank my beautiful wife for putting today together, but mostly for putting up with me over the course of our relationship. When I turned around and saw Luke walking down the aisle with Trinity, I realised how much today meant. I promise you Luke, as I know how much she means to you, to try and make Trinity as happy for the rest of her life as she is today.
I turn to my wife kissing her nose softly as I watch her close her eyes and enjoy the moment.
I raise my drink to Luke and he in return.
Stephen - We've got some presents for our bridal party and closest friends, and I know tradition states that usually the bridesmaid's receive a bouquet of flowers and the men get a bottle of malt. But we wanted to give you something a little more permanent, so we've got non-refundable bookings for each of you to get a tattoo portrayed of one of our wedding photos when they arrive.
Everyone bursts out laughing
Stephen - Seriously though, to show you how much we appreciate what you have done for us, and also what you have put in to making this day as special as it is, we would like to present these to you all.
I wait as the waiters bring out the presents to the four of them.
Stephen - To my best man, Clint. For those of you who don't know him, Clint is the guy here. A big thank you must go to him. This morning he even gave me a list of nice and wonderful comments to say about him. but it just reinforced my believe that he is a compulsive liar and to ignore everything he says about me.
We burst out laughing.
Stephen - Seriously though, you have been a great mate for more years than I care to remember and there is no one I would rather have by my side for my wedding.
Stephen - So on to my wife, I am completely overwhelmed at how amazing she looks today, and I can not believe just how privileged I am that she's chosen to be my wife. Trinity you are my soul mate and the love of my life. I am a very fortunate man and I would like to take this opportunity to say to you how much I am looking forward to spending the rest of my life with you. I hope that every day will be as happy as today.
Stephen - All that remains to say is thank you to all of you for coming, especially those who travelled so far. Extra special thanks however, goes to the person who travelled the farthest, my new wife, who after almost 2 years since we first met and started this journey is still right here by my side. Ladies and Gentlemen, please join me in a toast to my stunning bride.
Everyone claps and cheers as I kiss my wife gently and tell her how much I love her. I take her hand gently in mine and lead her out to the dance floor.
Stephen - May I have this dance?
Trinity - You may my darling
As the music queues our friends and family turn to watch as we take our first dance. My doll is yet to know which song I picked as she let me have the honours and I wanted to surprise her. I pull her close to me stroking her cheeks with one hand as she grips that bicep looking up into my eyes. My other hand possessively around her waist as she rests hers on my shoulder.
And with that the music starts and Amazed by Lonestar comes on.
I see a tear fall down her cheek and I gently kiss it away before pulling her closer to me, the intro beginning as I glide her across the stage holding her body tight to mine. I rest my mouth near her ear and as my opposite hand holds her head tenderly, she leans into me as I start singing softly into her ear.
Stephen - Every time our eyes meet, this feeling inside me, is almost more than I can take. Baby when you touch me, I can feel how much you love me, and it just blows me away. I've never been this close to anyone or anything, I can hear your thoughts, I can see your dreams. I don't know how you do what you do, I'm so in love with you, it just keeps getting better. I want to spend the rest of my life with you by my side, forever and ever. Every little thing that you do, baby I'm amazed by you.
I feel her hold me tighter as I wipe her tears away and as the song continues, and we keep dancing I keep reminding her how much I love her. As the song comes to an end and the next song starts everyone joins us and we stay on the dance floor holding each other for a few more songs. I watch as Luke and Clint take the opportunity to dance with my wife, while I share a dance with Mia and even Todd. I smile as the room is filled with the love of everyone that means the most to us.
After a few dances and everyone has had the chance for their food to settle we bring the cake out for cutting.
We both hold the knife and carefully bring it down together.
Clint - You touched the bottom you have to kiss a boy now
We all chuckle and Trinity walks over to Clint, wipes a bit of icing on his cheek and kisses it off.
Trinity - You did say kiss a boy and not a man
She says as she winks at Clint and everyone roars out laughing. We take a slice of our cake and as she brings it up for us both to take a bit I take a huge clump of icing on my finger and smear it across her lips before I capture them in mine sucking the delicious frosting off. Everyone cheers and I take the chance to slide my tongue in her mouth letting her taste the frosting in my mouth. As I pull away from her I whisper very softly into her ear.
Stephen - Didn't taste near as good as your frosting does
As I watch her cheeks blush I laugh and capture her lips again.
The night is winding on so we decide it is time for the bouquet toss and garter. As my doll takes her spot at the front I watch as she gets ready and tosses it.
One of the girls from her office was lucky to catch it and as Jess turned to her partner we all roared in laughter as we watched him bolt for the exit.
Clint and Luke brought out a chair for my wife to sit on as the music started and I got in front of her. I slowly ran my hands down the outside of her arms and down her beautiful stomach to the top of her thighs as I started to kneel down in front of her. My eyes were glued to hers as she watched every slow, deliberate move I made. Suddenly as I am about to lift her dress we all hear Luke and Clint shout
Luke - Anymore than 30 seconds mate and we will be pulling you back out
Clint - Anymore than 30 seconds mate and we will be pulling you back out
Everyone laughs and I look up to my doll
Stephen - So which leg baby?
Trinity - The left my love
I slowly run my hands up her beautiful leg and just as I get to the prize I feel my wife wiggle her toes right in my crotch tickling me right where she knows it is going to set me off.
Stephen - Oh you bad doll
I look up into her eyes as she is smirking back at me. I hook my fingers around her garter and just before I slide it back down I reach my finger out and give her a little stroke between the legs. She goes to gasp then realises all eyes are on us so she bites her lip and just stares directly back at me.
I bring it back down her leg and fling it over my head, not even looking at the boys as I grab her around the waist and bring her to the edge of her chair and reach my head up to kiss her. Everyone cheers and goes back to mingling as we sit there holding each other for a minute.
As I open my eyes I notice the sun is starting to set so I take her hand and walk her outside to the top of the vineyard and pull her in to me.
Stephen - I love you wife
Trinity - And I love you husband
I pull her into me, picking her up off the ground slightly to kiss her beautiful lips as the sun starts to set on our wedding day.
