“Hey French I’m really liking that dress.” Francesca smiled at her husband. She liked the form fitting white gown she had argued with her mother until she eventually tried it on and fell in love with it.”My mom picked it out. I was actually worried about my post baby pouch.” Angelo walked over to her wrapping his hands around her waist. “Well it’s all gone now but in this dress we might be working on another one.” Francesca slapped his hands away. “Oh no we won’t. “She smiled having memories of delivering the last four. Angelo looked at his wife he knew she was having second thought about living the quins it would be her first time in two months. “You sure you want to go to this benefit? We paid for the tickets they got their money.”
“Yeah I’m ok I know I have to cut the string at some point.” Angelo smiled giving her a reassuring hug this woman and their children were his world. “You ready Mr. Binochi.”
“Yes Mr. Binochi.”
They went to the quins room gave them kisses. They were using two girls from the maid service that Francesca knew personally. Francesca took a deep breath and said a prayer. Angelo wrapped his fingers around her hand. Everything will be fine.
They arrived at the cotillion and was surprised that it was mostly family and friends who had showed up for the fund raiser. “Does anything seem strange to you?” Angelo asked.
“Like we know everyone at this event yes.” It was only moments after they entered that Cella and Gianna bombarded her. “We need your assistance.” They got her into a room sat her down 2 girls came out one was fixing her hair the other the makeup. “What’s going on?” Her mother smiled “You’re getting married.”
“I guess I ’m going to be your Maid of honor.” Lauren smiled at her bring her a bouquet of tulips, lilies, white roses and orchids. Francesca smiled and cried hugging her best friend.
Vinny put his arm around his son’s shoulder. He had given him three grandsons had taken the Binochi company from a pop and son to global he was beyond proud. “You know I looked forward to the day I can watch my son marry the woman he loves. And hold my grandchildren and know I’ve done my job as a father and husband and my legacy will live on in him.” Angelo turned to his father and smiled his father hugged him. “Time for a drink boy.” Angelo’s father led him to a room. Rob his father in law Carmine and his brother in laws were sitting around a table drinking. “What’s going on dad?”

Francesca felt the butterflies in her stomach. She was happy and nervous her father was at her side and she still felt like she was going to pass out.” I love you little girl today I’m officially giving you to the man you love your children’s father.”
“Daddy.” She kissed him. They turned as the music started Francesca watched as the bridesmaids escorted by a grooms man walked down the aisle followed by Lauren who was meet by Rob then her music started and it shocked her at first The melody then the words Elvis…
Wise men say, only fools rush in but I can’t help falling in love with you. Shall I stay would it be a sin? If I can’t help falling in love with you.
