Chapter 12: The Reception…and the end.

A/N: I'm so sorry for taking so long, but here's the last chapter! This is the first free moment I've had in months. Don't forget to review!
Quick warning! This chapter has so much fluff it's sickening. Just thought I'd let you know.
Mary Anne's POV
Mrs. Logan Bruno. Those three wonderful words were still running through my head. There I was, standing next to the man of my dreams, about to go into a room filled with my friends and family. How lucky could a girl get? Logan squeezed my hand, breaking into my thoughts.
"Ready, Mrs. Bruno?" he asked, grinning. "Of course, Mr. Bruno." I replied. Then we heard Alan shout from inside "And here they are, Mary Anne and Logan Bruno!"
We walked through the door to tons of people, all cheering. I gasped when I saw the room. It was beautiful! Everything was a very pale pink, from the tablecloths to the flowers. There was a dance floor on one end of the room, on the other there were tables. I collided with a sea of girls. Jessi, Mallory, Claudia, Abby, Stacey, Kristy, and Dawn were all yelling their congratulations at once. We hugged, then all took our seats for dinner. Before we ate, being the best man, Alan stood up to make a speech. He tried to get everyone's attention, but failed until Kristy gave one of her famous whistles. This resulted in complete and instant silence.
"Well, as many of you know, I'm not known for being serious. But I will make an effort this once. We've all known Mary Anne and Logan for some time know, and I don't know two people more perfect for each other. Now, Mary Anne, I don't know if he's told you this, but Logan has had his eye on you since his first day in Stoneybrook. We were eating lunch together, and the first thing he said was 'Who's that girl?' Ever since then, I knew that he would do whatever he could to catch "his girl". And you better take care of her, Logan Bruno, or I know seven Baby-Sitters who are going to kick your butt!"
Everyone laughed. Then Kristy stood up. "Mary Anne, the girls and the kids and I have a gift for you."
Out came Marilyn and Carolyn Arnold holding a huge card with "Congratulations!" written on the front. On the inside it said, "Congratulations, Logan and Mary Anne! We love you!" It was signed by every single one of their charges. Well, that did it. I burst into tears. Dawn handed me some tissue while Logan stood up.
"Thank you, everyone." He said. "We really appreciate all the wonderful support you've given us. And in reference to Alan's speech, you girls have nothing to worry about. I wouldn't hurt Mary Anne for all the money in the world."
I looked at him, surprised. He wasn't one for making public declarations of love. He stared straight back at me, those georgeous eyes boring into mine.
"Mary Anne," he started. "You are the most amazing girl I've ever met, and I can only hope that I can be as wonderful a husband as you deserve. And I want to thank you. For choosing to share your life with me."
There wasn't a dry eye in the room, including mine of course. I couldn't stand it. I stood up and embraced my Logan. He held me tightly while everyone clapped. We sat down to eat our delicious lobster dinner.
After dinner we cut the cake, and then the DJ turned on the music.
"Well, everyone, how about we start out with the happy couple?" he said. "Will Mr. and Mrs. Bruno please take the floor for your first dance as husband and wife?"
Logan led me to the floor and placed his hand in mine. "Wonderful Tonight" came over the speakers as Logan and I danced.
It's late in the evening
She's wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make up
And brushes her long blonde hair
And then she asks me
Do I look alright
And I say yes, you look wonderful tonight
We go a party
And everyone turns to see
This beautiful lady
That's walking around with me
And then she asks me
Do you feel alright
And I say yes, I feel wonderful tonight
I feel wonderful
Because I see the love light in your eyes
And the wonder of it all
Is that you just don't realize
How much I love you
It's time to go home now
And I've got an aching head
So I give her the car keys
She helps me to bed
And then I tell her
As I turn out the light
I say my darling, you were wonderful tonight
Oh my darling, you were wonderful tonight
As the song ended, Logan looked into my eyes and said, "I love you, my Mary Anne." "I love you too, Logan." I said back. Then we kissed.
After the reception, we climbed into the limo. Logan and I were on our way to a honeymoon in Hawaii. As we rode off into the sunset I could only think of one thing…
A perfect day. A perfect wedding. The start of a perfect life.
A/N: It's finally done! I know the end was corny, but hey. I'm sick, give me a break. Anyway, I really hope you enjoyed it, and who knows? Maybe there will be some one shots heading your way later. Please review! Thanks!
