A/N- This is Marissa and Ryan's wedding. I tried to make it different from Seth and Summer's as much as I possibly could. Hope y'all enjoy it!

Chapter 31

"Wow Coop," Summer gushed looking at her best friend. "You look so beautiful!"

"Really? You think so?" Marissa asked, looking at herself in the mirror and admiring her dress. It was finally the dayt she and Ryan would officially be named husband and wife.

"Duh! Ryan's lucky to have you," Summer assured her.

"So where's Emily today?" Marissa questioned.

"My dad's looking after her. Seth and I didn't want her to start crying during the ceremony. Talk about major embarrassment," summer stated. Marissa laughed. "Aren't you and Ryan going to try for a baby?"

"After the wedding we will. We would have tried sooner, but then I wouldn't have fit into my wedding dress," Marissa explained.

"Well you better get cracking because Emily needs a best friend," Summer said.

"Don't worry. If all goes well tonight, in about 9 months I'm going to be having a baby!" Marissa exclaimed happily. She started playing with the veil on top of her head. "Sum…I'm nervous," Marissa whispered.

"Don't be nervous! I know I was a nervous wreck on my wedding day but I was marrying Cohen. I didn't know if he'd find some Cohen-y way to screw things up," Summer babbled. "But Ryan loves you. I know we don't really talk but he does. He's gonna make you happy."

"Yeah…yeah I know," Marissa said.

"I can't believe you're getting married, dude! This is like the coolest thing ever," Seth exclaimed.

"Tell me about it. I didn't expect me to get married," Ryan confessed. "But I love her so much. More than anyone else. I just want her to be happy."

"She will be, man. She loves you," Seth assured him.

"I know. I just didn't expect me to be so nervous. I thought that was your thing," Ryan replied.

"Haha. You're very funny Ryan. But don't steal my comic relief. It's natural to be nervous on your wedding day. Just think when it's all over that you and Marissa will be together forever," Seth said.

Marissa was waiting in the back with Summer, Caitlin and her father. People were already filled into the seats of the hall where the ceremony was going to be held.

"Good luck sis," Caitlin said, hugging Marissa.

"Thanks Cate," Marissa replied. Then she and Summer exchanged hugs.

"You'll be fine Coop. Don't worry," Summer promised.

"Thanks," Marissa answered and at that note, the chords for 'Here Comes the Bride' started up causing Summer and Caitlin to start walking down the aisle.

"I love you kiddo. And I'm so happy for you," Jimmy told his daughter, kissing her forehead.

"Thanks Daddy," Marissa replied as they started walking down the aisle. She spotted a bunch of her relatives in the seats as well as her mother who was crying out of happiness. Marissa didn't see Ryan's mom Dawn though. Perhaps Ryan and Sandy couldn't track her down. Or maybe she would have come if Marissa hadn't shot Trey. But Marissa didn't care about that anymore because it didn't change the way Ryan felt about her. She spotted Anna and Evan in the seats as well as Sandy and Kirsten. Then her gaze landed on Ryan. He looked so adorable in his tux. She couldn't believe she was getting married to him.

"I'd like to welcome you all to the Ryan Atwood and Marissa Cooper wedding…" the priest began.

"I love you," Marissa mouthed to Ryan.

"I love you too," Ryan mouthed back. Finally after a while of talking, it was time for the vows. Marissa had been repeating hers all day. She was first.

"Ryan, from the moment you gave me that corny line in your driveway I felt something. I knew we were meant to be. And I'm really sorry for everything bad that's happened and I'm so glad that that doesn't change the way you feel about me. For that I am eternally grateful."

"Marissa, when I moved here I didn't have anyone. Sure I had the Cohens and Seth, but when I met you I knew there was something special between us. Ever since we got together I've never been happier. And I don't care what happened between us over the last couple of years. I'll always love you."

"Do you Marissa Sarah Cooper take Ryan Matthew Atwood to be your lawfully wedded husband, to love and cherish in sickness and in health as long as you both shall live?"

"I do," Marissa said sounding more confident than she had felt all day.

"Do you Ryan Matthew Atwood take Marissa Sarah Cooper to be your lawfully wedded wife, to love and cherish in sickness and in health as long as you both shall live?"

"I do," Ryan declared.

"Do you have the rings?" Ryan got the rings from Seth and slid it onto Marissa's finger. It was a perfect fit. Marissa put the other ring on his finger.

"I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride!" Ryan took off Marissa's veil and embraced her into a passionate kiss while the audience erupted into applause. There were finally married.

After the ceremony, everyone went to the Cohen house for the reception. Before anything, there were toasts that needed to be made. First it was Sandy and Kirsten's turn.

"When Ryan came to us two years ago, we wanted him to have the life he never had," Sandy started.

"We knew that there was something special between him and Marissa and when they weren't together we would always hope they would get back together soon," Kirsten continued.

"We'd just like to say that we're both extremely happy for you both. And Marissa, we're happy to have you as part of our family, even though you were already," Sandy finished. Then it was Seth's turn.

"Ryan was in love with Marissa ever since he came here. And even though she was taken, it didn't stop him from fighting for her. I remember listening to Ryan talk about him and Marissa. Even though we aren't blood related Ryan and I are brothers. I guess what I'm trying to say it that I'm happy for him. Oh, and it's great to have you as a sister in law, Marissa," Seth said. Then it was Summer's turn.

"Coop and I have been best friends for as long as I can remember. We were even like sisters. I knew that Luke wasn't the one for her. When Ryan came, I knew they were meant to be. Even though they've had their differences they've always managed to get back together. I know that Ryan and I never really talk but if anyone's good enough for my best friend it's him. Congrats you guys." Finally it was Jimmy and Julie's turn. Marissa wondered what they would say.

"Marissa always knew what she wanted. When she got together with Ryan it was like she was a whole different person. Ryan, I'm happy to have you as my son in law," Jimmy said.

"I know that I didn't really like Ryan in the beginning. And I know that Marissa and I haven't been on the best on terms for the past couple of years. For that, I'm sorry. Marissa and Ryan deserve each other. Marissa deserves the best and Ryan is the best. I'm sorry for the trouble I've caused you two," Julie apologized, tears streaming down her face.

"It's alright Mom," Marissa said hugging her mother. "It's okay." When their hug was finished, Julie embraced Ryan who was surprised at first, but got comfortable with it after a while. Things couldn't be more perfect.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I think it's time for Ryan and Marissa's first dance as husband and wife," Summer announced as the music- Jem's Maybe I'm Amazed- started playing.

Maybe I'm amazed at the way you love me all the time

Maybe I'm afraid of the way I love you

Maybe I'm amazed at the way you pulled me out of time

And hung me on a line

Maybe I'm amazed at the way I really need you

Maybe I'm a girl

Maybe I'm a lonely girl who's in the middle of something

That she doesn't really understand

Maybe I'm a girl

And maybe you're the only man

Who could ever help me

Baby won't you help me understand

Maybe I'm a girl

Maybe I'm a lonely girl who's in the middle of something

That she doesn't really understand

Maybe I'm a girl

And maybe you're the only man who could ever help me

Baby won't you help me understand

Maybe I'm amazed at the way your with me all the time

Maybe I'm afraid at the way I love you

Maybe I'm amazed at the way you help me sing my song

Guide me when I'm wrong

Maybe I'm amazed at the way I really need you

"Thank you, Ry for everything. This is officially the best day of my life," Marissa murmured.

"It's mine too," Ryan whispered back.

"I love you," Marissa declared.

"I love you too," Ryan replied.

So I made up Ryan and Marissa middle names because I don't think they were ever mentioned on the show. Please review and lemme know how you guys liked it!
