a/n: ahhhh so here we are at the end of all things. I'm starting to sound lord of the rings-ish. I've seen them wayyyyyyyyyy to many times. Anyway, this is my last chapter for this story. Tears. I've had fun with it! There might be a sequel, but I don't have any ideas for one right now. If there is one it will be after my new story I'm with you is finished. That's up today by the way. Well I love you guys! Enjoy!
Oh- and thanks to no name, no face: thanks for telling me about the swans! When I started thinking about it, I really started to wonder what swans did in winter. Thanks for helping me out! And michelle22- I forgot about jess and the black eye. I honestly thought that was one of the funniest gg episodes. It probably helps that I'm not the world's biggest jess fan…
Disclaimer: I don't own Gilmore girls or the people in it. Just crazy marsha, and unfortunately I'm stuck with her!
Chapter 15: Happily Ever After
"Oh honey, you look absolutely gorgeous!" Rory turned around to see her mother standing in the doorway. She smiled.
"I'm so nervous!"
"I can't believe my daughter's getting married before I am!" Lorelai pouted. She sat down at the vanity and started touching up her makeup.
"That's no one's fault but your own," Rory said. "You could have married Luke a long time ago."
"Luke?" Lorelai asked.
"Come on Mom, don't tell me you never thought about it before."
Lorelai smiled a little.
"Good. Ask him to dance tonight. Just promise me I'll be your maid of honor in your wedding."
"Of course honey. Well I'm the maid of honor today, aren't I?"
"You are for now, but if you keep putting on makeup you'll look like a hooker and then you'll lose the position."
"Hooker eh? I guess I am overdoing. I'm just so nervous!"
"Why Mom? It's my wedding."
Lorelai smiled again. "And you look absolutely perfect. Spin around."
Rory obliged. Her dress was traditional, ivory white with a long train. It was strapless and had an intricate design hand embroidered all over the bodice. It was expensive, but Tristan insisted she had any dress she wanted. Her veil was long, trailing behind her as she walked. In her hands she held a bouquet of pink and white roses.
Lorelai and the bridesmaids wore pink dresses, the same shade as the one Rory wore the night of the dinner months ago. They were simple yet elegant, long and trailing like Rory's gown.
Chris knocked on the door. "It's time."
Rory smiled at her father and took his arm. The three of them left the Bridal room and went down the long hallway to where the rest of the wedding party was lined up.
Gigi was first, being the flower girl. She was five years old and looked absolutely adorable in her pink dress. Next came Lorelai, walking with Luke. Then the bridesmaids and groomsmen followed, Paris with Tristan's college roommate Bryce, and Lane with his childhood friend Justin.
When Rory and Chris walked through the final doors and into the chapel, her eye's immediately caught Tristan's. She walked the entire length of the aisle watching him watching her, not hearing her father's whispered words.
When she reached the alter, he reached out his hand, offering her a smile. With her hand in his, smiling up at him, she knew she was exactly where she was supposed to be.
A/n: lucky for you when I was typing, I came up with an idea for a sequel. But that doesn't mean you're not gonna have to wait to get it….
