Jenna woke up the next morning, and she couldn't be happier. The sun was shining, and could see through the window it was a beautiful day. Most of all, she was happy that she and John's wedding day was finally here.
"Jenna!", Maria called from downstairs, "Are you up yet? We need to get going."
"Yes, give me a minute," Jenna answered. She decided to wear a simple pair of jeans and button down shirt to the church. She was soon ready, and she and Maria headed to the church, where Jenna's aunt would be waiting to do their hair.
About two hours later, Jenna was doing a quick check in the mirror. She loved her vanilla colored strapless gown, and loved her crystal comb with long veil even more.
"Maria," she asked turning her attention to her friend. "Can you get John's dad please? I need to talk to him for a few minutes."
"Sure", she replied heading out of the bride room. While waiting for John's dad to come to the room, she received a text message on her phone. When she opened it, a smile grew on her face as she read it was from John.
I just wanted to say
I love you.
Jenna was just in awe of how much he loved her, and appreciated how he showed it. As she finished texting him back to say how much she loved him in return, she heard a knock on the door.
"Come in!", Jenna replied.
"Hi Jenna, Maria said you wanted to talk to me.", John's dad replied as he pulled up a chair across from his future daughter in law.
"Yes I did," Jenna began. "Now, you know that neither my mom or dad are here. You have been like my surrogate father since high school, and I have a very important question for you."
"Sure, just name it."
"I was just wondering if you would walk me down the aisle. I was thinking if I walked down the aisle by myself, I may not make it."
John's dad then stood up from his chair and gave Jenna a hug. "Jenna, it would be my pleasure to walk you down the aisle. I would be honored."
"Thank you so much!", Jenna replied not breaking the hug.
Soon it was almost time for Jenna and John's dad to walk down the aisle. Jenna was looking into the church and saw all of her bridesmaids at the altar, and the trumpets started playing, signaling Jenna.
"Are you ready?", John's dad asked as Jenna linked arms with him.
"Yes. Thank you again."
"My pleasure", John's dad told her smiling.
As they made their way down the aisle, John and Jenna immediately locked eyes, and they both had tears streaming down their eyes. John thought she looked so much like an angel, and felt immensely blessed that she was about to become his bride. When his dad gave Jenna to John, he gave his dad the biggest hug he could.
"Your welcome, son. Be sure to take care of her."
"I will, don't worry about that," John said smiling, finally breaking the hug. He then took Jenna on his arm and stood before the priest. He then began with a prayer, and soon it was time for the vows. John and Jenna decided to write their own vows, and the priest told John that he was to start first.
John then took a deep breath. "Jenna, when I sat down and decided to write what I wanted to say to you, I couldn't form any words to make a sentence. It wasn't a case of I didn't know what to say, I just didn't know how to say it. Your love makes me speechless. I love how you stand by my side no matter what, and know that I can count on you no matter what. I am promising you today that I will be the best husband I can, and hopefully one day be the best father possible. I also promise to be truthful to you, and the only tears you will cry from now on will be tears of happiness. I feel so blessed that we were given this second chance to be together and will not take it for grant it. I am so honored to have the opportunity to call you my wife, and I love you so much."
Jenna smiled back at John with tears in her eyes, and whispered I love you back to him. She was then told it was her turn to recite her vows.
"John…I thank God every day that you came back into my life. My life now has more meaning. I love that I see your face before bed, and wake up to your smile. Thank you for your support of me, no questions asked. Thank you for all the times you have made me laugh, and for the shoulder I have to lean on. I promise you that I am going to be the best possible wife I can. I am very proud to be taking the Cena name, and will try to uphold the honor every day from now on. I love you too, John.", Jenna finished still smiling.
John and Jenna then heard the words they have been waiting to hear for now 6 years: they were pronounced husband and wife. John lifted Jenna's chin and brought his lips to hers into a soft, deep kiss.
"I love you", he whispered as the now newlywed couple stood hugging.
"I love you too."
Jenna was so excited to be Mrs. John Cena. She had been dreaming of this day ever since she was a high school girl with a crush. Her dream had finally become a reality. As she stepped into the limo with John to go to the reception hall, she had to smile at him.
"You look happy," he said as he gently caressed his new wife's cheek.
"I am extremely happy. You have no idea.", she replied as she climbed into the limo. There, the vehicle took off, and the newlyweds took off to start their new life together.
