Here Comes the Groom

Here Comes the Groom

Here comes the Bride, all dressed in white,……..

Luchia smiles at everyone as she walks down the aisle.

She was not allowed to look outside her veil to look at Kaito, but she knew he was happy too.

They say their vows silently and happily,

"I love you. You are my best friend.
Today I give myself to you in marriage.
I promise to encourage and inspire you, to laugh with you,
and to comfort you in times of sorrow and struggle.
I promise to love you in good times and in bad,
when life seems easy and when it seems hard,
when our love is simple, and when it is an effort.
I promise to cherish you, and to always hold you in highest regard
These things I give to you today, and all the days of our life."

Luchia says.

"From this day forward I promise you these things.
I will laugh with you in times of joy and comfort you in times of sorrow.
I will share in your dreams, and support you as you strive to achieve your goals.
I will listen to you with compassion and understanding,
and speak to you with encouragement.
I will help you when you need it, and step aside when you don't.
I will remain faithful to you for better or worse, in times of sickness and health.
You are my best friend and I will love and respect you always."

Kaito says.

"I promise to give you the best of myself and to ask of you no more than you can give.
I promise to accept you the way you are.
I fell in love with you for the qualities, abilities, and outlook on life that you have,
and won't try to reshape you in a different image.
I promise to respect you as a person with your own interests, desires, and needs,
and to realize that those are sometimes different, but no less important than my own.
I promise to keep myself open to you, to let you see through the window of my personal
world into my innermost fears and feelings, secrets and dreams.
I promise to grow along with you, to be willing to face change as we both change
in order to keep our relationship alive and exciting.
And finally, I promise to love you in good times and in bad, with all I have to give
and all I feel inside in the only way I know how... completely and forever.

We pledge to each other to be loving friends and partners in marriage.
To talk and to listen, to trust and appreciate one another; to respect
and cherish each other's uniqueness; and to support, comfort
and strengthen each other through life's joys and sorrows.
We promise to share hopes, thoughts and dreams
as we build our lives together.
May our lives be ever intertwined, our love keeping us together.
We will build a home that is compassionate to all, full of respect
and honor for others and each other.
May our home be forever filled with peace, happiness and love."

They say together.

"Do you Domoto Kaito take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife, in sickness and in health, 'till death do you part?", asks the judge.

"I do." Kaito replies.

"And do you Nanami Luchia take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband, in sickness and in health, 'till death do you part?", asks the judge again.

Luchia looks at Hanon and Rina and at her closest friends.

Hanon smiles and cries in her handkerchief and Rina smiles and nods her head.

Luchia smiles at them both, looks back to the judge, and says, "I do.".

"I now pronounce you husband and wife.", says the judge and nods her head, signaling a "you-may-kiss-the-bride" look.

Kaito lifts the veil.

Luchia opens her eyes and looks at Kaito.

But she gasps and widens her eyes.

"You're not Kaito!"
