Chapter 40 - The Wedding (both point of views)
[ Gryffin ft Katie Pearlman - Nobody Compares to you.]
Finally, after been through lots of problem and all, I finally ready to be his wife. Just a few more minutes before our wedding. Now, I'm in my waiting room and I'm standing in front of the big mirror and of course I'm nervous. Whatever it is, yesterday was fun. Celebrating my last day before be a someone's wife. We had so much fun. I hold the paper of my vows to him. I've been memorize this vow because I don't want to stop in the middle of it. I read it a few more times and now I already memorize it all and perfect.
I look at myself in the mirror and smile. The dress that I've been wanting since I was young, now hugging my body perfectly. "Mom, dad I'm getting married today. I know both of you must be so happy from me up there." I said and blink my eyes few tmes also clear my throat to prevent my tears from running out. I don't want to ruin my makeup.
Just then, I heard the door open and show Alexa, Brianna, Elijah's parents and the twins. "Oh my god, you look so beautiful Thea." Elijah's mom said to me and I thank her.
"If you don't mind, I'll walk with you along the aisle. I already told Joseph and he's okay with if you okay too." Mr. Perkins said to me.
"I would love too." I reply and smiling at him and the others. "Thank you so much." I said again.
"Now, let's go. It's time." Mr. Perkins said and I take a very deep breath and begin to walk and left the room with Mr. Perkins. Now, both of us standing in front of the door. I'm literally shaking like crazy now. The wedding song is being play and then the door are open.
I look front and everyone who are there look at me with smile. I wrap my hand to Mr. Perkins and begin to walk. My eyes look at Joseph. His face look so handsome in that suit. I can't describe his face when he look at me.
Mr. Perkins stop after we're in front of the priest and Joseph. Joseph hand out his hand and I take it with a smile. We look each other's eyes and smile. "You look so so so beautiful today Thea." He said and I smile at him. I'm happy that he loves how I look today. We're both nkw facing the priest and everyone stay silent before the priest start to speak.
"We gather here to unite these two people in marriage. Their decision to marry has not been entered into lightly and today they publicly declare their private devotion to each other. The essence of this commitment is the acceptance of each other in entirety, as lover, companion, and friend. A good and balanced relationship is one in which neither person is overpowered nor absorbed by the other, one in which neither person is possessive of the other, one in which both give their love freely and without jealousy. Marriage, ideally, is a sharing of responsibilities, hopes, and dreams. It takes a special effort to grow together, survive hard times, and be loving and unselfish." The priest start to say.
"Now, let's give a chance to our groom and bride to say to each other vows. Let's start with the groom." We face each other again and he take a breath before begin to speak.
"I promise to spend each day working to become the truest version of myself, for you, for us, and for our family. I love you and thank the Lord for bringing you into my life. As we enter into the sacred bonds of matrimony I promise to always love you in sickness as in health, in poverty or wealth, in sorrow and in joy, and to be faithful to you, my wife, so long as we both shall live. I vow to love you and keep you every day of my life as my wife - to look into your eyes adoringly as I do now - and to kiss you tenderly on your lips as a remembrance of our wedding day." He said his vows abd now my turn to say my vow to him.
"It is clear to me now that everything in my life has led me to you - I think back on all my choices and consider even the bad ones blessed, because if I had done even one thing differently, I might never have met you and become your wife. You are my family, and I want to be there for you in all things, I am so excited to be your wife and share in every moment - not only the good times, but the learning experiences too. I vow to take from every moment the opportunity to love, to nurture, and to grow - and to never forget how lucky I am." I said to him and he smile at me. Now for the last part is the 'I do' part. Then we're officially become husband and wife.
"Joseph Sanchez, do you take Thea Morris for your lawful wife, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do you part?"
"I do." He answer without any hesitation.
"Thea Morris, do you take Joseph Sanchez for your lawful husband, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do you part?" The priest look at me.
"I do." I finally said.
"I now pronounce you husband and wife. May I present to you, Mr. and Mrs. Sanchez. You may kiss the bride." Joseph cup my face with his hands and lean in to kiss me. He kiss me passionately and I smile between the kiss. I heard everyone applause for us.
I can't believe I'm her husband now. The moment when the priest said that I can kiss my bride, I hold her face with my both hands and kiss her. She smile between the kiss and every one give us big applause.
"I love you so so much my wife." I said to her and she smile sweetly to me. I carried her and bring her out of the church with everyone else behind us. We get in the car and heading to the hotel for our wedding reception.
After a few minutes, we finally arrive at the hotel and walk out to see our friend and family already got here. I didn't know hiw they can arrived so fast. I hold Thea's hand and walk together. "Bro, congratulations." Elijah abd Parrish come to me and hug me.
"Thank you. So soon, your daughter and son will get their new friends." I said and look at Thea who been talking to Alexa and the other woman who I assume are her colleagues.
We all now dance in the middle of the hall.
With Thea in my arms I feel so happy. "How many children do you want?" I ask her and she look at me with confused and red face.
"Do we have to talk about this now?"
"Of course. Well its fine if you don't know but I think I'm gonna need lots of children so that when we're old, they can take care of our companies."
"What's mine is now yours too. So yeah our." She nodded her head and I kiss her. "Thank you for being my best friend, my girlfriend, my fiancee, my wife and... My interior designer." I said and kiss her again.
My new chapter of life is starting from now. I will make sure I make her happy to have me as her husband. Thank you for being my interior designer at first and now my wife.
