OMG, are you kidding me? This was so lovely and beautifully written, I want to weep. I have the FEELS! I could absolutely envision every word of this. I love that you did a call back to WoO with the kiss. Sigh.

A very nice setting for their wedding. When Jack makes up his mind...Jack makes up his mind! You left to the imagination their calling and telling their friends and their excitement in the inviting. Doing so made completely centered on the setting of the beach, and their moment. However, I wonder if you had those moments in a draft and then deleted them. I'm sure they would be amusing to read.
I appreciate the contrasts you've included here: Sam's making the distinction between Jack and Pete and their reactions to things, focusing on why Sam found Jack so much more steady than Pete. The puppy dog look would make a woman have to feel motherly as opposed to an equal with her partner-and Jack is partner material all the way. ...Jack's memories of his first wedding, his rank, the setting, the crowd, his youth-contrasted with this wedding. There is not one blood relative there for him (either of them), but he has discovered family means more than that. Of note, though, is how you did not deny Jack's happiness at his first marriage which you easily could have insinuated. I'm glad you didn't. You've just painted it different. And that's how it should be. Jack is different now. This is where he is in life now. It makes me smile-as does the WoO throwback. Lovely descriptions. I could picture it all. Now...can I get a picture of Teal'c taught how to hula out of my head! : - )

I have read this story before, and once again, I sighed at the end. Perfect, just perfect.

Never has avoiding things-I-probably-should-be-doing-instead-of-this been so enjoyable. :)

"And it was perfect."
*sappy happy sigh*
That it was.
You know, for a moment there I swear I was actually on the beach right there with them. How do you do it? How do you write the reader right on in there so well like that. Gah I wish I knew how but I suspect it's an intuitive rather than learned skill. It's awesome!
Thank you for writing. :-)

Aww now I am all teary eyed. Great story so in character and I can see them not fussing with a big wedding just their good friends present.
