Chapter 4: The Wedding!
On the morning of July 28th, Hogwarts was busy with excitement. Ginny and Hermione were in the girl's dormitory, and Harry and Ron were in the boy's dormitory. Mr. and Mrs. Weasley, Bill, Charlie, Percy, and George were out in the Great Hall getting everything ready. Soon guests starting arriving, everyone else rushed to the dormitories to get ready.
"Mummy, I'm so nervous!" Ginny exclaimed.
"You'll be fine sweetie. I'm so proud of you! I love you."
"I love you to mum."
At 12:45, all the guests had arrived and taken their seats. Everyone took their positions a few minutes later. Finally at 1:00 the music started. Hermione took Ron's arm and walked down the aisle, followed by Mrs. Weasley and Mr. Weasley, Bill and Fleur, and Charlie and his wife, Arnia. Then everyone stood up for the bride.
Ginny appeared looking like a fairy tale princess. She slowing walked down the aisle towards Harry. Harry kept smiling at her. He felt as if he was on cloud nine. When Ginny reached the top of the aisle she took Harry's hand and the minister began to speak.
"Ladies and Gentleman, Witches and Wizards, we are gathered here today to witness the bonding marriage of Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley. Their journey here had rough spots and so will their marriage no doubt. But the journey of marriage is the best journey anyone can take. I understand you have written you own vows. Harry you may read yours to Ginny first."
Harry faced Ginny and began.
"Ginny, before I met you, I always felt there was a part of me that was missing, a part of me that wasn't there. When I met you…I felt complete. You complete me. I promise to always be there for you, and to respect you for as long as I live. I love you."
Ginny had tears in her eyes. She began to recite hers to Harry.
"Harry, you have always been the love of my life. You're my soul mate, my hero, my love, and my friend. You're the half that completes me. I also promise to love, respect, and honor you all the days I shall live. I love you."
The minister then said, "May I have the rings?"
Hermione handed Ginny Harry's ring, and Ron handed Harry Ginny's.
"Harry place the ring on her fourth finger of her right hand. Harry Potter, do you take Ginny Weasley to be you lawfully wedded wife? Do you promise to love, honor, and cherish her through better or for worse, in sickness and in health, until death do you part, all the days of your life?"
Harry looked at his beautiful bride, "I do."
"Ginny place the ring on his fourth finger of his right hand. Ginny Weasley, do you take Harry Potter to be you lawfully wedded husband? Do you promise to love, honor, and cherish him through better or for worse, in sickness and in health, until death do you part, all the days of your life?"
Ginny looked at Harry and said through tears, "I do."
The minister smiled, "Then if no one has cause for objection. I herby pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride."
Harry smiled and said, "My pleasure." He kissed Ginny and everyone stood up and clapped. There wasn't a single dry eye in the Great Hall.
Ginny and Harry turned and walked down the aisle the new Mr. and Mrs. Potter.
