"You ready kid?" Lorelai asked.
Rory looked at herself in the mirror. She couldn't believe she was getting married. She had dreamed about it, but she'd never pictured it like this. It was perfect. She felt like a character in a book. She kept waiting for someone to pinch her and wake up. But this was real. And she was thrilled.
"I can't believe you're getting married." Lorelai sniffed.
"Mom please don't cry. If you cry then I'll cry. And then I'll look like a mess."
Lorelai straightened her shoulders. "You're right." She said bravely. "Not crying."
"Not crying." Rory confirmed.
Just then, Chris walked in. "Wow, kiddo. You look incredible." He said.
"Yeah. Let's go."
Lorelai nodded and walked out ahead of them. As the music began to play the brides-maids and ushers walked in. Lorelai was the last to walk out, besides Rory. Everyone stood and turned as the traditional wedding march began. Christopher took Rory's arm and they began to walk. The Dragonfly was even more beautiful than usual. The backyard was a perfect wedding spot and the arch that had never been used was painted and decorated. ribbons and flowers were everywhere and the place had never looked so stunning.
Up at the alter Logan couldn't believe his eyes. He had seen Rory look beautiful before, of course. She always looked amazing. But as she walked down the isle he couldn't help but gawk. She was gorgeous. And she was going to marry him. It was right then he knew he was the happiest man on Earth.
Rory and Christopher stopped and looked at each other. Christopher gently raised the layer of veil from Rory's face and behind her head. She smiled and kissed his cheek. He then turned her around and gave her a nudge.
"Dearly beloved we are gathered here today to join Rory Gilmore and Logan Huntzberger in holy matrimony." The priest began. "If anyone has any objections, please speak now or forever hold your peace."
Logan's eyes immediately went to Shira, who was sitting in the first row next to Mitchum. He smiled when she remained silent and seated. He was glad she had understood that he had meant business that Sunday months ago.
"Rory and Logan have prepared their own vows." The priest announced. He turned to Logan and nodded.
Logan took a deep breath and began.
"A wise man once said 'People can live a hundred years with out really living for a minute.' I am thrilled that my next hundred years will be spent with you. I had never imagined getting married. But here I am. You caught me, Rory. You caught the one impossible to catch. And I'm glad we found each other. I can remember the moment I fell in love with you." He laughed. "We were getting ready to jump. And as you took my hand and said 'You Jump, I Jump, Jack" I new you were special. You challenge me. You keep me on my toes. And you make me bring you coffee." The crowd laughed. Logan's face went serious. "There is no one I would ever rather bring coffee to. You are incredible. You are perfect. You are my Ace. And I am proud to call you my wife." He slid the ring onto her finger.
The priest turned to Rory and nodded. Rory wiped tears from her face while muttering "Not crying." and began.
"The first day I met you, I hated you." The crowd laughed. "And the second time I met you, I still hated you. But then I got to know you. I learned that you were different. I learned that to you, life was about taking chances and living every minute as if it were your last. You made me think. And so I began to see you more and more. And then it got to whenever I saw you with some other girl I wanted to kill them. I've never felt like that before. You have always been there for me even when obstacles got in the way. Whether it was other people, work, or being on different sides of the world. If I truly needed you, you never let me down. And to this day you never cease to amaze me. I've always wanted a fairy-tail love story. And I never had that until I met you. To be perfectly honest I'm still waiting for someone to wake me up, because this is just too perfect." She smiled and wiped away more tears, which were now streaming down her face. "I love you, Logan." She squeaked. She slid her ring onto his finger.
"I love you too, Ace."
"Logan, do you take Rory to be your lawful wedded wife? For richer, for poorer, in sickness, and in health, in good times and bad, as long as you both shall live?" the priest asked.
Logan grinned. "I take her for a lot longer than that." He said. "But yes, I do."
"And do you Rory, take Logan to be your lawful wedded husband? For richer, for poorer, in sickness, and in health, in good times and bad, as long as you both shall live?"
Rory nodded and wiped away yet more tears. "I do." She said.
"Ladies and gentlemen it gives me great pleasure to present to you the new Mr. and Mrs. Logan Huntzberger." The priest announced. "You may kiss the bride." He told Logan.
Logan did so and pulled Rory into a mind blowing kiss. When they finally came up for air they grinned.
"I love you, Logan."
"I love you too, Ace."
Logan took Rory's hand as they walked out of the church and were covered in flying rice.
"Excuse me! Hello!" Lorelai called into the microphone later that night. Everyone was gathered in the town square and the party was kicking. They had every food you could imagine and more. Hep Alien was rocking all night long and everyone just seemed generally happy.
"Thank-you." She said once silence was found. "I just wanted to propose a toast to the bride and groom. I love you both very much and I know you'll buy me a very good birthday present for this." She grinned. "And now I think Lane would like to say a few words."
Lane smiled as she walked up on stage. "For all the years I've known Rory, which is a lot by the way, she has always talked about getting a dream wedding. She told me in second grade she knew exactly how she wanted it. She would ride in on a pony in a pink wedding gown. And she would marry her prince. She also said she would have 12 kids. One for every month of the year, since she loves birthday parties. Well, Rory, I don't think you'll be having twelve kids but I know you found your prince. And I don't think I've ever seen you happier than you are right now." Rory's eyes had tears in them as she looked up from her place at the center table next to Logan. "Congratulations." Lane held up her champagne flute. "To Rory and Logan!" Everyone cheered as they also called "To Rory and Logan!"
Finn stumbled up onstage, whiskey in hand. "It is my job as best man to give a speech." He said thickly. "Logan was a wonderful lad. He always had high hopes and good wishes. He was always my boy." He stopped for a moment before launching into song.
What a lovely way of sayin'
How much you love me
Havin' my baby
What a lovely way of sayin'
What you're thinkin' of me
I can see it, face is glowin'
I can see in your eyes
I'm happy you know it"
"Oh my god. Is that Paul-Anka he's singing?" Logan said from the table.
"THAT YOU'RE HAVIN MY BABY. YOU'RE THE WOMAN I LOVE. AND I LOVE WHAT IT'S DOIN TO YA. HAVIN MY BABY." Finn yelled.
"That it is." said Rory. Logan put his head in his hands.
Luckily Colin got onstage at that moment and pulled the microphone away.
"What he means is, uh, congrats man." He said quickly. "And that he really needs to go now." And with that, Colin dragged him off stage.
"Its times like these I truly question your taste in friends." Rory told him.
Logan took her hand and gently began rubbing his thumb across it. "I do that myself from time to time." He said.
" 'Time to time?' "
"Meaning every day."
The next day everyone gathered in the town square once again to see Rory and Logan off. No one was quite sure where they were going except Logan.
"Come on Logan. We're married, now. Please tell me where we're going." Rory begged.
"Can't do that, Ace. You know how much I love the element of surprise."
"What's that?" someone called pointing to the sky. A small jet was coming toward them. Everyone backed away as it landed in the center of the town square.
"What is this?" Rory asked, amazed.
"It's our ride." Logan said simply. "I believe you know Frank." He said gesturing to the pilot who was putting their bags inside. Frank waved. Rory waved back.
"This is taking us on our honeymoon?" she questioned.
"Well we weren't going to walk." Logan said as if it were obvious. He pulled her close to him. "Come on, Ace. You know I do things big. Besides, it's only the best for my wife." He said kissing her.
She smiled. "Let's go."
"That's the spirit."
Lorelai walked up to them as they were about to board. She hugged Rory tight.
"Now send me lots of presents, where ever you're going. Be careful and have fun. And remember: bring me presents." She repeated.
Rory laughed and hugged her tighter. "I'll miss you, mom."
"It's only two weeks, kid. Besides you're gonna call me everyday, right?"
Lorelai smiled. "Okay." She pulled away. "Now go! Shoo! Go be crazy."
Rory waved as she climbed on with Logan. "Bye mom!"
"I love you, kid!"
"Love you, too!"
The plane started to descend, and everyone began to wave. Rory and Logan waved from the windows.
"So where are we going?" Rory asked after about twenty minutes. They were settled on a comfy plush couch on the plane. After all, it was Logan's jet.
"Well remember how we never got our trip to Asia?" Logan asked.
Rory gasped. "Really?! Oh my god Logan this is great! I'm so excited!"
Logan smiled. "Well were going on the trip we pretty much planed except..."
"Except we're going to stop in the Bahamas for the last three days. I want some time to just lay on the beach and tan."
"That sounds great."
"You'll like it. We have a room right over looking the beach."
"That sounds perfect." She snuggled closer to him and laid her head on his chest.
He leaned in and kissed her. He could tell this was going to be fun. And he could also tell they weren't going to be going much of anywhere in the Bahamas.
