Everyone finally agreed to have the Weddings at the eastern end of the Island and so Croquet and Roland worked together to get the area ready and everything set up for the coming Weddings. There was a large arch erected and it was covered with flowers and then in the middle of the archway there was a spot made for the Minister to stand and for each of the couples to stand too.
Serenity called a Mai who was living in New York at the time and told her "about the Weddings and that she really needed her help in designing the perfect Wedding Gown for Peggy because she was going to not only becoming Max's wife but her and Joey's adopted Aunt and she wanted not but the best for her."
Mai then asked Rene if she knew Peggy's measurements, what was her favorite color and did Peggy have a preference of what she'd like her gown to look like?"
Rene told Mai Peggy's measurements and shoe size were and that her favorite colors were baby blue and light pink and that she had always dreamed of getting married in a dress that resembled the ones that women wore in the Victorian times." Mai then said "I know exactly what gown to bring and I have the perfect shoes too, so we'll leave tomorrow and be there in two days and just have someone to meet us at the airport and it'll be good to see all of you again."
Rene told Max what Mai said and he was so thrilled that he would be able to give Peggy her dream wedding and then he asked about Joey and Seto and were they getting their clothes together?"
Rene laughed and she said "Oh their ready especially when I made them go shopping with me and they are going to look very handsome. Are you and Croquet ready too?"
Max laughed as he said "Oh we're ready and I can hardly wait for the day that I will be marrying Peggy and becoming that family with Mica as our son." Rene was in tears as she held onto Max and together they cried and laughed as they thought about Greg and Molly and how much they'd love meeting Peggy and welcoming her and Mica to their family.
Seto and Joey were at the Manor and one evening Mokie came to talk to them and he asked "Would it be alright if I give Rene this gift?" Mokie took a little box out of his pocket and handed it to Joey who opened it and inside he found a promise ring and Mokie said I really love her and I want to marry her one day after we've graduated from College so is it alright?"
Seto stood up and opened his arms and Mokie ran to his brother and as they held each other Seto said "I love you and I'm so proud of both you and Serenity for being smart enough to realize that you both need your education before you think about getting married and I know that Joey feels the same way."
Joey smiled at them and he stood and said "I feel the same way that Seto feels and I know how hard it is sometimes not to be with the one you love all the time but you both need to know that you both need time to yourselves and that will only make your love for each other be stronger. I'd love to see my sister wearing that ring and to know that one day both of you will be married and as happy as your brother and I am right now."
Croquet was waiting at the airport the day that Valon, Mai and their sons arrived and drove them to the pier where they boarded the launch to get to the Island. When they arrived there waiting for them was Max and Rene and tears ran like rivers as they all hugged and kissed each other and then Max said "Let's get go, I want all of you to meet the beautiful lady that I'm marrying and her son who will soon be our son."
Mai couldn't believe how changed Max was and she smiled as he got into the car and when they arrived at the house he was the first out and as they walked inside he brought Peggy and Mica out to meet them Mai saw how attentive he was to this lovely lady and how her eyes lit up as Max introduced her and Mica to his guests.
When they went to the living room Serenity got Peggy aside and whispered something to her and she nodded and then she excused herself and Rene motioned to Mai and the three of them left the room and went upstairs to Rene's room and that's when Mai opened the dress bag and took out the Wedding Gown and showed it to Peggy. Peggy's eyes filled with tears as she softly said "This is just what I envisioned wearing the day I got married."
Mai took the dress off the hanger and when Peggy tried it on it fit like a glove and so did the shoes and as she twirled around she whispered "Mai how did you know that this is exactly what I wanted?"
Rene giggled and told her "Max told me one day that you had mentioned what you dreamed of your Wedding Gown would look like and well I just told Mai and well here is the gown."
Peggy walked over to Mai and Rene and she hugged them and then she said "When I first found out that I was going to have a baby the man who fathered Mica just laughed at me and he told me that I wasn't worth anything and that no man would ever want me to be his wife and no one would want to father a bastard, and now here I am going to marry the only man who believes that I'm worth everything to him and he wants to adopt my son and make Mica his son. Well I guess I'm worth something after all aren't I?"
Mai wiped away Peggy's tears and she said "Hon, you listen to me and listen good, that son-of-a-bitch who made you pregnant was the one that no one would ever want and I know Max and he really loves you and your son and that's all that matters."
Rene smiled at them and she said "When my parents died it was Max who held Joey and me while we were grieving and it was his love that helped us get better and all I've ever wanted was someone to come into his life and bring him the happiness that he deserved and you're that someone and you're giving him a bonus a son to love too. I want to thank you for that and I love you for giving Max the love that he so desperately needs."
Valon was sitting in the living room with Max and Mica and Valon asked Max "Rene said something about a mural that Mica drew is there anyway I can see it?"
Max smiled and said "Mica let's go show Valon the mural."
Mica's face lit up and he held his hands out to Darrell and David and they three of them walked down the hall followed by Max and Valon and as they walked into the room Valon couldn't believe how beautiful the mural was and he said "Mica you're one heck of an artist, this is so life like and it's just amazing."
Just then they heard Mai say "Wow, this is one really great mural. Peggy your son is one very talented artist." Peggy smiled at her and she said "It was Joey that noticed Mica's talents and got Max to come see him and well that's how we met and now we're about to become a family soon."
Croquet came and said "Chef said lunch's ready and if we don't come eat soon he's going to quit and leave us going hungry." Max laughed as he held out his hand to Peggy and as they led the way they all walked to the dining room and sat down to the best lunch any of them ever had. After they had lunch Max suggested that they all go outside and see his paradise first hand.
As they all walked around and Mica and the boys ran around it was the best afternoon that Mai and Valon had had in a very long time. The young ones were getting tired and so Croquet and Valon and Max carried the young ones inside and as they all put them down for a nap Mai and Valon rested too as did Peggy, Max and Rene. They all had things to do to get ready for the Weddings.
Three days later as the launches brought out Seto, Joey, Roland and Mokie and most of Seto's staff they all went to get ready for the coming ceremonies. As Roland, Croquet and the rest of the staff got things ready, the men went to get ready as did the ladies and when everyone was ready, Mica held his mom's hand as they walked down the aisle and Rene walked beside Joey and as they walked towards where the Minister was waiting Max and Seto stood there watching their loved ones come towards them and when Peggy and Joey both put their hands in Max and Seto's hands the Minister began saying.
Dearly beloved we are here to join together these two couples in Holy Matrimony. They have all written their own vows and I want to begin by asking Peggy to read her vows first.
I never thought that I'd ever find a man who could love not only me but my son and then one day you came into our lives and taught me how to live again. You've not only asked me to marry you but you also asked to adopt my son and make him yours and I will forever thank God for bringing you into our lives and for making me the happiest woman on earth. I Patricia Louise Sawyer take you Maximillion Pegasus as my husband to have and to hold till death us do part.
Then the Minister said now Maximillion please read your vows.
When I lost Cecilia I thought that I'd never love again, but then his young man came into my life and with him was this angel he called mom. I will forever thank God for bringing us together and for allowing me to find happiness again in the arms of one of his angels. I Maximillion Pegasus take you Patricia Louise Sawyer as my wife to have and to hold till death us do part.
Then the Minister said "May I please have the rings and as Mica and Croquet gave him the rings and the Minister said "Please say after me, with these rings I thee wed." As both Max and Peggy said the words then the Minister said "I now pronounce you husband and wife, you may kiss your bride."
Then the Minister said "Seto Kaiba and Joey Wheeler want to be joined as life mates and so I'm going to ask Joey to read his vows first.
I've seen what real love is by watching my parents because they truly loved each other and I prayed that someday I'd find that kind of eternal love and I have and his name is Seto and I will forever be thankful for him loving me in return. I Joseph William Wheeler take you Seto Eugene Kaiba as my life mate to have and to hold till death us do part.
Then the Minister said now I'm going to ask Seto to read his vows.
I have been cynical about the whole finding love thing and then you happened to come into my life and you showed me that it's really true; there is a happy ever after because I've found it in your love. You've given me the most precious thing you gave me your love and I will forever give you mine. I Seto Eugene Kaiba take you Joseph William Wheeler as my life mate to have and to hold till death us do part.
Then the Minister asked for the rings and Serenity and Roland gave him the rings and as the Minister gave each of them a ring he said "Please recite the words after me" and then as they did the Minister said "I now pronounce you both life mates, you may kiss your mates.
Then the Minister said "I want to now give you Mr. & Mrs. Maximillion Pegasus and Seto and Joseph Kaiba may all of you have the happiness you all have been searching for."
The reception was the best part of the Wedding with everyone there hugging and kissing each of the Wedding Parties and Mica went over to Max and said "Can I call you dad?"
Tears ran down Max's face as he knelt down in front of him and said "I'd love for you to call me dad."
Max, Peggy and Seto and Joey all danced their first dance as married people to the one song that Peggy had loved and wanted to dance to and so Max asked Rene to make sure that this song played for their first dance together.
HEAVEN'S MISSING AN ANGEL (98 Degrees)
I hope the Man upstairs
Isn't mad at me
'Cause I have one of His angels
And she's here with me
When I see her precious smile
And she spreads her wings
It takes me to a place where love
I'm not letting go
I don't want to be alone
In this crazy world
How I love her so
And I'll sacrifice it all to have her
In my life
I found my girl
I'll tell the world
That Heaven is missing an angel
My dreams came true
When I found you
Yes, Heaven is missing an angel
Not a day goes by
That I don't thank God for you
He blessed me with my angel
Though I don't deserve you
Until I found you, girl
Lonely was my best friend
Now that you are in my life
I am stronger within
I can't wait to kiss my angel
Late at night
And watch her go to sleep
Until I see her rise
All that I do is for you
Me without you, girl, just won't do
Your love's all I want to know
Angel, don't you ever go
Life won't be the same without you
Seto and Joey went to Europe for their honeymoon and Max took Peggy to the other side of the Island where they would spent three days together.
Mica stayed with Croquet, Rene and Mokie who also took care of Darrell and David so that Mai and Valon could spend a few days alone in a very nice hotel paid for by Max.
