Epilogue: The Girl in the Wedding Dress
The girl stared at herself I the mirror, her long brown hair was set in perfect curls that twisted to her waist, red tints showing through. She was exceptionally pretty, with lily white skin and a perfect heart shaped face, big amber eyes were her dominant feature. She wasn't wearing much make-up since there was evidently no need for it, but a small amount of blue eye shadow and eyeliner had been delicately applied. She sighed and stood up, being careful not to tear her beautiful white gown (A/N: Picture of the gown is on my profile!). As soon as she stood she started pacing and toying with her fingers. After a few minutes of her nervous pacing, a small pixy like girl danced into the room. She too had pure white skin and amber eyes but her hair was wavy and black. She was wearing a long green v-neck silk dress that had patterns sewn on in beaded intricate patterns. Two blonde's followed after her, one tall and glamorous, wearing a long red dress with a plunging neckline and a slit on the side, showing her long legs. The second blonde was more motherly and she was wearing a simple baby blue dress that fitted her perfectly.
"Bella, you shouldn't be so nervous!" The pixy cried, a huge smile stretching across her face as she looked over at the girl in the wedding dress. Bella smiled shyly and stopped pacing.
"The motherly blonde stepped up to her and wrapped her in a tight hug. "I can't believe your getting married. It was only yesterday you were still my little Bella." The women sighed and pulled away, placing her hand on her cheek and then wiping the tears off her adopted daughter. "It feels like only yesterday Alice was married. I feel like I'm losing you all!" She looked over at the pixy adoringly.
"Esme, look what you've! Bella's started crying and now her make-up might run!" Alice scolded her, reversing the usual roles of mother and daughter. She turned to the other blonde who was leaning on the far wall. "Come here Rose, group hug!"

The girl in the wedding dress stood behind the doors that led into the room where she would be wed with a bouquet of freesias and red roses clutched in her small deathly pale hands. She closed her eyes and breathed deeply, calming herself before she ran away. She loved Edward, that was for sure, more the anything I the whole world, and would gladly giving her life to be with him like she had done once but the fact that she would soon be marrying him was amazing. Esme, Alice and Rosalie had all reassured her that this was completely normal. Before she could take another breath, Esme came to stand by her.
"This is it Isabella," The women said, using the bride's full name and linking her arm around Bella's. "Are you ready?" The bride nodded and smiled back her. It made her slightly sad Charlie, her biological father, wasn't there to give her away. Or Carlisle for that matter, but he was performing the ceremony.
She then heard the soft organ playing the wedding march and the doors opened, Alice (the maid of honor) entered first with her husband, Jasper, then Emmett (the best man) went through the doors with his wife Rosalie on his arm. They took their places as the girl in the wedding dress came through the doors, getting her first glimpse of the room. It had been decorated in pure whites and soft blues. Around thirty chairs had been set out, fifteen on each side, and a long white carpet led up to the raised platform, where an arch intertwined with white and blue flowers stood. The vicar stood slightly behind the arch and Edward stood in front with Jasper and Emmett by his side. Rosalie and Alice were on the other side, waiting for Bella to join them.
The repetitive thought kept playing in her mind as she made her way to the alter with Esme just in front, acting as her flower girl. Esme naturally reached the platform before the bride and took her place by her other daughters.
Isabella's eyes fluttered to her groom and she melted. His perfectly messy bronze hair was falling over his eyes slightly and her crooked smile was gracing his face. The temptation of running up to him and crashing her lips to his was overwhelming for a minute before she clamed herself down. They had the whole of their honeymoon for that.
She reached the platform and took Edward's outstretched hand. She smiled radiantly at him before they both stepped under the arch.

"You may now kiss the bride." Carlisle said shutting the book he held in his hands, before smiling as his adopted son and daughter kissed passionately. They smiled at each other and walked down the long carpet and were pelted by the many covens they had invited. The Vouturi were even there Aro, Marcus and Caius were sitting with Jane, Alec, Demitri and Felix. The Denali coven were there in the mass, talking excitedly to Alice and so were the coven.
Carlisle felt a strange swelling feeling in his chest and could feel a grin spreading on his face. Everything was so right at this moment it was unreal. Everything that he had been through in the past, all the wars he had fought in and all the happiness he'd seen. It was amazing just seeing this all come together, for Edward and Bella's tragic love story to end with such happiness.
Carlisle strolled down from the platform where he stood and was caught up by the now dispersing crowd.
