Meredith stood at the top of the altar, along with Izzie, Callie and across from them Derek, Alex, George and Preston, who was waiting for Christina to walk down the aisle towards him.
As Christina walked down the aisle to the wedding march, something she had fought hard against, Derek's eyes were only on Meredith. She looked beautiful in the spaghetti strapped burgundy dress. The years had gone by really fast. Derek was now head of Neurology and Meredith and all of her friends Residents. Addison had gotten head of OB/GYN and Burke head of Cardio.
Addison had found love in a New York Plastic Surgeon, Mark Sloan, who moved to Seattle a few years ago.
Izzie and Alex had gotten married and had twins boy and girl during their last year as interns and George and Callie had gotten married and had a boy the year before, with another boy on the way.
Meredith smiled back at Derek once she caught him staring at her. She loved him so much. She then turned her attention back to the bride and groom as they said their vows.
After the ceremony, there was a huge reception in Burke and Christina's backyard. Meredith and Derek were sitting at one of the tables having dessert, watching everyone dance. "No fast dancing right?" Derek had asked.
"No, but you can have me for the first slow song and-"
"and everyone after?" He interrupted. Watching her again, he spoke. "We could do something like this right?"
Meredith turned to him, "something like what?"
"A reception like this? Maybe next summer, once the house is done? It would look really great with the lake in the background. What do you think?"
"Are you saying what I think you're saying?"
"What do you think I'm saying?" Derek played.
"You're mean." Meredith turned her attention back to dessert.
Derek laughed and grabbed her hands, "I wanted to wait till later, but this is the perfect opportunity," Derek reached into his pocket and pulled out a beautiful jewelry case. "Meredith, I love you, and I will continue to love you for the rest of my life. I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Meredith, will you marry me?"
"About bloody time!" Christina said from the dance floor, coming over to them.
"She hasn't said yes yet." Derek smiled.
Christina hit Meredith on the shoulder, "answer the man."
Meredith looked to Christina, "Ow… and Yes!"
"Just remember that I let you pick out your own bridesmaid dress." Christina said before beckoning George, Izzie, Alex, and Callie over.
