I'm Amazed By You


I paced back and forth in the room, running my hands through my hair frantically. I walked over to the bed and sat down on the edge, willing my frenetically beating heart to slow down. I started bouncing my knee nervously.

"Fuck," I muttered running my hands through my hair again as I stood back up and began pacing again.

Why was I so nervous suddenly? Why the fuck was I acting this way? I was fine last night during the rehearsal dinner and I was fine when I went to sleep. I was more than fine, I was ecstatic. That's not to say I'm not ecstatic now, I'm just nervous and slightly terrified. But of what? I found the most beautiful and perfect girl to spend the rest of my life with. Someone who I never in a million years thought I could find. It is amazing just how perfect we are together, how perfect we meld together, like two pieces of a puzzle, like two hearts that come together to beat as one. So why was I scared suddenly?

"Calm down Edward, calm down, everything will turn out perfect. In just a few short hours Isabella Black will become your wife." I mumbled to myself as I continued to pace the room.

"Talking to yourself I hear?" My head snapped up to find Emmett peeking through the door into my bedroom. I hadn't heard him come in.

"How did you get in?" I asked stilling for the first time in who knows how long.

"Alice gave me your spare key." He held up the hotel card key for me to see.

"Oh," I said before I started pacing again.

"You alright there bro? You seemed to be talking to yourself as I walked in? Want to talk?" He asked walking up to me with narrowed eyes as I continued to pace.

Talk? Maybe talking would be a good idea. Talking was usually good. Yes, talking.

"Edward?" Emmett said snapping me out of my stupor, grabbing me by the shoulders and halting my pacing. I stared at him blankly.

"Calm down. You seem a little on edge." He said eyeing me closely.

"Um, I'm fine." I lied.

"Bull shit. Sit down and let's talk." He said pushing toward my bed by my shoulders and pushing me down till I was sitting on the edge of it.

"So, tell me." He said sighing as he took a seat beside me.

"I don't know, I'm fucking sweating. Look at my palms." I said holding them up to show him. "I'm a fucking wreck. Why the hell am I so nervous?" I asked. His hand came over my knee stilling it. I hadn't realized I was bouncing it again.

"It's normal to be nervous man. This is big. You're finally getting married!" He said with a grin, patting me on the back. I nodded. "And you have found the perfect girl to spend the rest of your life with." I nodded again, my eyes fixated on the blue and red hotel carpet beneath my feet.

"Just the way you two look at each other is enough to make those around you gag, so I guess that tells you right there that your love for each other is strong." He laughed as I nodded again. "Say something dude."

My head snapped up to meet his questioning gaze. "What?" I asked.

"Are you having some kind of melt down or something?" He asked, his eyes studying me with concern. I shook my head.

"You know, you're not much help." I said in irritation standing up and pacing again.

"Well then Mr. grumpy-on-my-wedding-day, why don't you tell me what it is that has you pacing back and forth like a headless chicken?"

"I don't know," I said in frustration raking a hand through my hair. "I went to sleep feeling fine, I was excited, calm and I couldn't wait for today to arrive. But then again, I could blame that on the vodka I had." I shrugged. I paced a few times trying to conjure up why it was that I was so nervous. I wish I could answer that question myself. I didn't even know the real reason. "Emmett, you love Rosalie." I stated. He nodded even though it wasn't a question. "Does it sometimes feel like too much?" I asked stopping and facing him. He looked at me with confusion.

"Huh?" He asked. I chuckled lightly. I took a deep breath and let it out slowly, trying to come up with a way to explain what I wanted to say clearly.

"Does it sometimes feel like . . . the love you have for her is so intense that it kind of freaks you out a little?" He stared at back at me in deep thought. I had no idea why a question like this would require so much thought from him. It was either a 'yes' or a 'no'.

"Yeah it does." He finally answered. "Is that what is happening to you now?" I shrugged as I started pacing again. "Dude, you seriously need to stop the pacing because you're making me freaking dizzy." Emmett snapped. I stopped and turned to face him.

"Sorry," I mumbled. "I just have never felt anything this intense, and much as I don't want to mention her today out of all days, I never felt anything even remotely close with Tanya. I can't even begin to compare. I never knew love could be so grand, so intense and just so . . . overwhelming."

"That shouldn't be something to freak you out though. That should be erasing your nerves because it is showing you that you are ready to marry her, that your love and devotion toward her is there and so intense and real. You have nothing to worry about dude." He explained.

"What if I screw up? What if I hurt her? What if I don't end up being the man she wanted to marry?" I asked my nerves lacing my voice.

"Those are not questions you should be asking yourself a few hours before you say 'I do' man." Emmett shook his head with laugh. I glared at him. "Sorry," He held his hands up. "I'm sure she is down the hall, in her room, having all the same nerves you are having and asking herself the same questions you're asking yourself. It's normal to think that you may not be good enough and to question it. But Edward, bro, you won't screw up. She loves you more than anything in this entire world. Her face lights up whenever she sees you, the way she smiles at you, they way she hugs you. I can see it. And it's the same with Brady. You were the missing piece in that kids life. You were what he was missing out on. Chill, everything will be fine." He said smiling at me. I stared back at him, his words sorting themselves through my overworked brain. He was right, everything he said was right. Bella did love me, I saw it in her eyes. And I loved her, more than I ever thought was possible of loving anyone.

"Is the sex great?" Emmett asked out of no where, snapping me out of my thoughts.

"What?" I asked, caught off guard by his question.

"Is the sex good?" He asked again, slowly this time like I was someone with a mental disability. I couldn't help the shit eating grin that overtook my features.

"Good? Good doesn't even come close. Sex with Bella is just . . . fuck, I can't even find words to explain . . . mind blowing, there, mind blowing." I nodded hoping that was a good enough description.

"Thought so," Emmett smirked, "Well then, you have nothing to worry about because we all know if you two have a fall out then there is always make up sex and if normal sex is 'mind blowing'" he said using air quotes, "then by the time you're both done with make up sex, you would have forgotten what it was that the two of you fought over. And we all know great sex plays a big part in a happy marriage."

Before I could say anything I heard a light knock coming from my room door. I exited my room and headed walked over to the hotel door and opened it.

"You're not showered?!" Alice asked incredulously rushing past me and into the room. I shook my head to register what just happened and how in the hell she knew I hadn't showered yet. It was all too fast. I didn't even see her, all I saw was a blur of black hair.

"Good morning?" I said closing the door and walking back into my room.

"There is no time for formalities today Edward, and look at you, you're still in your boxers!" She said pointing at me in complete shock. I looked down at myself, I was still topless and in my boxers.

"Go easy on him, the poor guy was having a minor melt down." Emmett said walking over to the mini fridge and scanning its contents . . . not sure what for. It must be just a habit of his to scan for food.

"Sorry to say this, but there is no time for break downs right now. Your beautiful bride is down the hall already made up and ready to step into her dress and her groom is not even close to being ready? Do you even want to get married today Edward? Or should I go and tell Bella that her groom is taking this so nonchalantly that even on your wedding day you can't-"

"Alice!" I snapped. She froze mid sentence, her mouth still open. "I hear you. Please, just . . . all this chattering right now is not helping." I said raking a hand through my hair. "Just tell me what you want from me and I'll do it."

"Ok, go take a shower, shave, whatever you guys do and get back out here. I have your tux in my room that I'll just go grab in the mean time."

"Ok, but tell me one thing first please?" I asked, pleading with my eyes.

"What's that?" She asked.

"Bella. How is she?" I asked, my heart fluttering just at the mere mention of her name. Alice smiled warmly at me.

"She is perfect, looking absolutely stunning. We've done her hair and make up. Renee is in there with her at the moment. She looks perfect Edward. She is going to take your breath away." Alice said softly.

"She always does." I murmured.

"Awwww," Emmett said mockingly walking up to me. "My little bro is love struck." He said patting me on the back.

"Ouch! Watch it will you?" I said stepping away from him. The guy had some freakish strength on him.

"Sorry, but that wasn't hard, it's just that love is turning you all soft and gooey." Emmett laughed. I rolled my eyes at him before heading into the bathroom to get ready.

I turned the shower on to let it warm as I stripped out of my boxers. I stepped into the shower and under the warm spray, letting it cascade down my body, enjoying the warmth of the water. I shampooed my hair and scrubbed myself and then just stood under the spray, letting the warm water relax me because I knew as soon as I was to step out I was going be attacked by the black haired bundle of energy waiting for me outside. Once I was satisfied I'd had enough, I switched the water off and stepped out onto the bath mat, drying myself off. When I was dry enough, I wrapped the towel around my hips and headed over to the sink and pulled out the shaving cream. I shaved my face, going slow and not wanting to cut myself and hoping I wouldn't miss any spots. A little after shave and I walked back out into my room.

Alice was gone but my tux was in its garment bag laid out on my bed. I walked over to my suitcase and pulled out my boxer briefs and slipped them on. I put on the white dress shirt that was laying beside the garment bag on the bed also. I unzipped the garment bag and carefully pulled out my tux, being careful not to wrinkle it in the process. I pulled the black suit pants on, tucking in the shirt and buttoning them up. I grabbed my cuff links that I had sitting on the dresser and fiddled with them till I had them on. I hung up my jacket for later and walked over to the mirror and looked at myself.

This was finally happening. . .

I could hear chattering going on in the suite outside so I opened my bedroom door and walked outside to find Jasper and Carlisle there. Carlisle seemed to be fiddling with his dark bronze tie.

"Edward." My dad smirked as he eyed me down. "You look handsome son."

"Thanks," I breathed, my nerves kicking in again. "Where's Emmett?" I asked as I headed over to the bar where a bottle of Jack Daniels sat.

"He's gone to get dressed."

"Joining me?" I asked them holding up the bottle of JD.

"Sure," Carlisle agreed.

"Hell yes." Jasper laughed as he appeared beside me, pulling out three glasses.

I poured some ice into each one and then filled them with JD. We each grabbed a glass and turned to each other.

"I'd just like to say a few words first," Carlisle began, clearing his throat. "You don't know how happy I am right at this moment. It'll be impossible for me to find the right words to express the emotions I'm feeling right now. Edward, your mother and I always knew you deserved nothing but the best. You've always been gentle-hearted, loving and passionate and we are so very proud of you. You went through a point in your life that changed you and not for the best." He said looking at me, I knew he was talking about my break up with Tanya. "It scared me to think that you would never trust someone enough to love them again, to never open yourself up to love. And then, just like that, you meet beautiful Isabella, who turned you around and I could never have wished for you to find someone so perfect. Before I get all emotional," He chuckled as his voice broke, "Let me just say, I wish you both the best in life and I hope you cherish each other for eternity." He held up his glass as Jasper and I tapped ours against his. They both took a sip as I sculled mine, grunting as the liquid burned down my throat.

"Thanks Dad, you don't know-" I stopped when I saw him looking at me wide eyed. "What?"

"You're not having any more." He said pointedly, nodding his head at my empty glass. I chuckled.

"I know. Believe me I don't want to be drunk, I want to be completely sober to enjoy my Bella today. But I just needed to calm the nerves a little."

"It's all normal." Jasper said, "I was a mess on my wedding day." Jasper laughed.

"I remember. You were freaking out." I chuckled.

"What did I miss?" Emmett's voice boomed into the room as he stepped in all dressed in his tux. "Hey! I want some booze." He pouted as his eyes landing on our glasses.

"Big baby," I mumbled as I walked over to the bar to pour him a glass.


I stared back at my reflection in the mirror, unable to form words for how I felt. My stomach was in knots, my palms were sweating and my heart was beating like there was some kind of race going on within it. I took a few deep breaths, trying to calm myself. If I was feeling this now, how was I going to handle my nerves once I actually put my dress on?

I couldn't believe it has been three months since Edward proposed to me. Time has definitely flown by. Stepping off the plane and back into Santa Barbara gave me the feeling like we never even left. Edward and I wanted to get married where he proposed, somewhere where we could have a quiet beach wedding with our family and closet friends. We wanted simplicity.

Things have gone smoothly for us in the last three months. Brady and I officially moved in with Edward. As soon as we got back from Phoenix, Edward had Brady's room painted and decorated. Brady picked out blue walls and a 'big boy' theme. Edward and I weren't sure what that meant exactly but it turned out Brady didn't want car things everywhere like he had back in our home. We kept his room simple, plain blue walls and cream carpet. It was decorated with shelves, toys, a new desk, a new bed, a little couch and even a TV. Edward spoilt him rotten, turning his room into every little boy's dream. It was his 'domain' as Edward calls it now.

This all meant that I moved out of Jacob's and my house and Seth moved in. Trying to explain what I was feeling as I was packing everything away and the day I moved out is difficult for me to explain. I was feeling a myriad of emotions, all completely different and at odds. I was excited because I was moving in with Edward but sad about leaving Jacob's memories. I was so relieved about finally being able to move on with my life but felt guilty because I felt like I was leaving a part of Jacob behind. I was going to miss the house that Brady grew up in and where Jacob and I started our lives together, but thrilled about being able to start a new life with Edward. I was an emotional wreck that week before moving in. The stress of packing, the emotions, work and trying to sort out what I should leave in the house took its toll on me. But I felt huge relief knowing Seth was moving in, Jacob's best friend and my best friend. He would cherish what was left of Jacob's in that house not destroy them. He left the TV cabinet that Jacob built himself because he cherished the memories and for that I was so grateful and at ease that I wasn't totally skipping out on it all.

Billy was better but not the best. Whenever he would want to see Brady, Edward and I would take him down to La Push. I had said to Billy before, you don't have to accept Edward for yourself but for me he had too. He was better to Edward. He wouldn't talk to him unless he desperately needed to, other than that it was nothing major. He wasn't hostile toward him, I wouldn't put up with it if he was anyway. But he was warming to it. He saw how much Edward loved and cared for Brady and just how much he made Brady laugh and smile. Our life was complete… finally.

His reaction to our engagement was not a surprise to me or Edward. He wasn't too happy but didn't say anything. Words didn't need to be spoken to see he was hurting but he promised me last time that he is trying to understand that I will eventually have to move on, we can't hold on to the past. Billy wasn't able to fly out for our wedding due to his health but Edward and I knew that even if our wedding was in Forks he wouldn't have attended anyway. That would have been way too much for him.

"Is she in here?" I heard Renee ask from the other side of the door snapping me out of my daze. I spun around just as the bathroom door opened up, my mum stepped in, all dressed up in her beautiful dress, her make up and hair all done. Her dress was a lovely deep blue fitted cocktail dress that came to rest just above her knees. The bust came over from either side, crossing over in the middle of her chest to opposite sides of her shoulders. Her hair was done up in a relaxed up do, her bangs swept to the side softening her features.

"My baby," she whispered in awe as she looked at me. "You look absolutely breath taking." I looked down at myself in my bath robe confused but figured she must be talking about my hair and makeup. She walked up to me and enveloped me into a hug. I wrapped my arms around her and hugged her tight, letting her embrace relax me but instead I felt tears prickling my eyes. I tried to blink them back but they spilled over. Renee pulled me back enough to look at me.

"What's wrong baby?" She cooed as she grabbed me a few tissues and began dabbing my eyes gently, careful not to smudge Rosalie's handiwork. I shrugged.

"I don't know," My voice came out a whisper as I tried to fight back more tears.

"Come here, let's sit." She led me out of the bathroom and sat me down on the bed beside her. She began rubbing soothing circles into my back as she gave me time to speak.

"It's all just . . . so overwhelming." I sniffled. "I love him so much mum." I said before more tears spilled over.

"I know you do sweetie and so does Brady. We all love him. I could never have picked a better man for you to marry." She said. I looked over at her.

"Do you think this is all too much?" I asked.

"What is baby?"

"This . . . wedding. I mean I'm a widow, maybe I shouldn't be-"

"Hey," She cut me off, grabbing my face with both of her hands making me look at her. "This is nothing. It's a small wedding, a ceremony in a little chapel with your closet family and friends, followed by a quiet reception. There is nothing too much about it at all." She soothed.

"I hope so," I said looking back down at my hands in my lap, fiddling with a tissue.

"Bella, the past is the past. This is your future and that is all that should worry you right now. Jake would want nothing more than for you to be happy ok?" She asked placing her finger underneath my chin to make me look up at her. I nodded, sniffing. There was a light knock on the door.

Renee jumped up and opened our hotel door to find Brady standing there with Alice. She had taken him to dress him with Charlotte and Peter. The tears started up again when I spotted him, standing in the doorway, frowning in his little black suit and tie. I got up from the bed and hurried over to him, picking him up and hugging him tight against me.

"I love you so much my Brady." I said peppering him with kisses all over his face.

"Elk!" He said wiping his face down. I chuckled as I let him down. "You ok?" I asked kneeling in front of him, my hands on his shoulders.

"This tie is annoying." He frowned.

"I know sweetie, but Peter is wearing one too. And all the men are wearing ones. This makes you a big boy now." I said smirking.

"Yeah?" He asked, the corners of his mouth pulling up into a smile.

"Sure does. You're not a little kid in a suit."

"Cool." He said. I heard Renee chuckle behind me.

"Ok, I need to get the bride dressed." Alice sung from the doorway.

"And I'm here to help." Rosalie said appearing behind Alice. Both were dressed already, looking absolutely stunning.

Alice was my maid of honor, her dress a silver pleated skirt with a sequined detailed bust. The dress came to rest just above her knees, a black silk belt just underneath her bust where all the silver and black sequin detail rested. Her hair was straightened and clipped up on side behind her ear with a cute little silver sequined hair clip.

Rosalie had her hair curled in big waves and swept over my shoulder. Her dress was a pearl purple, a knee length floating chiffon skirt. She also had a thick silver sequined belt under the best with a silver sequined neck. She looked absolutely stunning.

I'll just take Brady outside." Renee said as she led Brady to the door.

As Renee was stepping out of the room she almost ran into a man holding a huge bouquet of long stemmed red roses. I gasped at the huge arrangement that was arranged in the shape of a heart. Renee moved herself and Brady out of the way as the man brought in the bouquet and placed it on the small dining table near the balcony French doors.

"For a Bella Swan." He said.

"Thank you so much." I said to the delivery man once he had them safely on the table. He nodded with a smile and left the room closing the door behind him.

Rosalie, Alice, Renee and Brady all appeared around me as I admired the arrangement. I found a little white card tucked away to the side. I picked it out and pressed it against my chest not wanting anyone to read it just yet. I turned and raised an eyebrow at them. Rosalie smirked at me while Alice playfully glared as they walked away. Renee giggled and ushered Brady out of the room.

I pulled the card back and read it.

Two more hours and you will be mine forever. You are my life and my world. I love you more than words could ever describe

~ E ~ xox

I grinned from ear to ear and couldn't help the tears that formed in my eyes, tears of extreme happiness and love. After Rosalie and Alice read the card and 'awwww'-ed over it, Alice pushed us back to business.

After Rosalie had touched up my make up from all the crying, Alice was standing to the side with my dress carefully held in her hands.

"Ah Alice?" I asked knowing she would probably bash me for even considering what I was about to ask.

"Yes?" She asked as she held the dress up for Rosalie to try and unzip from the back.

"Can I go see Edward?" I asked biting my lip and preparing myself for a verbal bashing. Her eyes shot up from the dress and to me, wide eyed in horror.

"Edward?! Don't you know its bad luck for him to see the bride-"

"Before I put my dress on." I explained quickly.

"It doesn't matter. You slept in separate rooms last night for a reason."

"I know but I really want to see him. I miss him and I want to thank him for the flowers."

"In a few hours you will get to see him but for now no!" She said narrowing her eyes at me. I huffed in annoyance.

"I forgot your shoes!" Alice said in horror suddenly.

"Where in Forks?" I asked worried.

"No in my room." She said. I relaxed and chuckled at her over reaction.

"No biggie, I'll go grab them." Rosalie offered as she headed for the door. As she opened the door we found Jasper standing there.

"Oh, hey." He said before his eyes found me. "Bella. You look . . . wow!" He said with a chuckle. I blushed and thanked him.

"Is there a problem?" Alice asked narrowing her eyes at Jasper for interrupting. I would have hated to have seen what she was like on her own wedding day.

"Ah, Emmett can't find his tie." Jasper explained trying to fight back a smirk.

"You boys are so incompetent sometimes, I swear!" Alice huffed as she laid my dress back down on the bed.

"I'll be right back Bella." She said as she left the room mumbling various things about Emmett and his lack of ability to dress himself. Jasper chuckled before giving me a quick smile and heading out, closing the door behind him. I turned back to my room and let out a deep breath, eyeing my dress laid out on the bed. I walked up to it and fingered some of the detail along the bodice, my mind thinking a mile a minute about today and the joy of it all.

"Bella?" I jumped and spun around when I heard his velvet smooth voice from the other side of the door. My heart escalated immediately as I walked over to the door.

"Edward." I said in relief as I walked up to it, my hand hesitating on the handle.

"Can you open up?" He asked, his voice sounding anxious.

"Is everything ok?"

"I just . . . I miss you baby. I want to see you."

"I miss you so much too. Oh thank you so much for the roses, I love them so much."

"Anything for you baby." I could hear the love dripping from his voice it was overwhelming me.

"Alice has warned me that I can't see you before the wedding." I explained.

"Are you in your dress already?" He asked.

"No, but she said regardless it doesn't matter because its bad luck to see the bride 24 hours before the wedding." I heard him groan and that was enough to get me to fling the door open. I wanted nothing more than to be in his arms. As I was turning the handle her voice rang out, I halted my movements.

"Edward!" I heard Alice shriek. I stifled a giggle. I could picture the horror on her face finding Edward at my door.

"I want to see her." Edward said sounding like a little kid that was asking to open up a present before Christmas day.

"Its bad luck." She said sounding annoyed.

"That's bull shit. It's an old wives tale . . . just let me see her." He argued, although his voice was soft as if knowing already his arguing would be fruitless.

"Edward Anthony Cullen, if you don't move that ass of yours away from Bella's door than I swear to God I will kick your ass into oblivion." I snorted a laugh at Alice's tone. She could be quite scary for someone so tiny.

I heard a light thump on the door. It sounded like Edward hit his head against the door in defeat. I lifted my hand and placed it over where I heard the thump.

"I love you my Bella." I heard him say softly.

"I love you Edward." It probably seemed ridiculous having a stupid piece of wood separating us from seeing each other but there was no upsetting the black haired pixie.

"Shoo." I heard Alice say. I heard Edward growl before the sound of his retreating footsteps echoed through the door. I opened the door and glared at Alice.

"You're both such babies I swear." She said pushing past me into the room. I snuck a peek out into the hallway but Edward was already gone. I sighed and then walked back into the room and closed the door behind me.

"Where's Rosalie?" I asked.

"She'll be here in a sec. Now come here." She said holding the dress open low on the ground for me to step into. I untied the bathrobe I was in and took it off, throwing it onto the bed. I was in some white lace panties and topless. Covering my chest with my hands I stepped into the dress as Alice pulled it up. I dropped my hands from my chest and grabbed the top of the bodice and adjusted it around my chest while Alice zipped my dress up from the back. Once that was done, Alice began puffing out the bottom of the skirt, straightening the slight train. It was a white strapless gown that flowed out freely from the bust down. It had white flower detailing in chiffon that came under my bust and up over one shoulder to the back. It was simple and comfortable, perfect for our wedding. Alice came and stood in front of me, taking a few steps back to admire me. Her mouth curled up into a grin.

"You look absolutely stunning." She said, her eyes starting to glisten with unshed tears. I smoothed the dress out, looking down at myself and mumbling a thank you. I took a deep breath and walked over to the mirror. I gasped lightly. I almost didn't recognize myself. I was glowing, my face relaxed and completely content. I smiled and relaxed, seeing just how happy I looked. There was a burning light in my eyes, a sparkle that I hadn't seen in years. It was so comforting to see myself like this again.

The door knocked a few times and Alice cracked the door open to see who it was. A second later she swung the door open and Rosalie, Esme and Renee walked in with Charlotte behind them. They all froze when they spotted me, all their eyes glistening with tears. I tried to fight back my own knowing Rosalie would have to touch it up again if I let them spill.

"I know." Alice agreed, answering their unspoken words as they all stared at me in stunned silence. Esme was the first to approach me, enveloping me into a hug.

"Gorgeous, so, so stunning." She whispered into my ear. She pulled back and grinned at me. "Edward is not going to know what hit him." I smiled back her. She looked beautiful herself. She had on a dark bronze knee length cocktail dress. It was a halter neck line and gathered a little down the front, with a thick silver belt under the bust and some silver around the shoulders. The color looked beautiful on her with her pale skin and caramel colored hair. Her hair was curled lightly and left out considering it was too short to pin back.

"Have you seen him?" I asked, anxious to see how he was doing. She nodded with a smile. "How is he?" I asked.

"He is good. Absolutely impatient to see you and make you his wife." She chuckled. "He is quite comical actually. He has had to fix his hair a few times because he keeps running his fingers through it anxiously. I think he has given up." I chuckled lightly at the thought of Edward constantly running his hands through his hair. I didn't want him to fix it, I wanted it in its disorganized disarray, I loved it that way.

"Good, I can't wait to see him and hug him." I admitted. Esme gave me a knowing smile.

"Well, in a few hours you can both run off and forget the reception if you want. You both seem anxious just to be in each other's arms." She winked and I blushed.

Edward and I stopped having sex two weeks ago wanting to wait for the wedding, something to make our wedding night special and explosive. Let me tell you, it has been absolute hell. Trying not to have sex or do anything sexual has proven to be more difficult than we anticipated. We've almost caved in on so many occasions till one of us was able to stop before things got too far. So at the moment, all I wanted was to become his wife, run away with him and lock ourselves into our hotel room for a few days.

"You look really pretty Bella." My eyes darted down to charlotte who was standing beside me now. I sat down on the bed and patted the space beside me for her to sit down, considering I couldn't actually crouch or kneel down in my gown.

"Thank you sweetie, you look gorgeous yourself, like a beautiful princess." I said smiling at her. She smiled and blushed as she sat herself beside me. "How are you holding up? You're still not worried are you?" I asked. Charlotte was our flower girl and yesterday she had expressed to me her nervousness in walking in front of so many people. Edward and I had to sit and talk to her to ease her nerves. We reassured her that she will be having Brady and Peter on either side of her so she wouldn't be alone.

"I'm ok now. I just hope I don't fall." She said worriedly. I tried not to chuckle.

"That makes two of us." I admitted. She grinned and rested her head against my arm.

"Lift Bella." Rosalie ordered as she crouched in front of me. I lifted my dress a little so she could slip my little heels on.

"Bella, baby, you look… " Renee stood in front of me, tears streaming down her face. Once Rose had both my heels on, I stood up and pulled her into a hug. "So beautiful Bella. You don't understand how happy it makes me to see you like this." She said through her tears. I hugged her tighter and over her shoulder I could see Alice glaring at me a little. I knew it was because I was squashing the detailing on the front of my dress but I just ignored her, glaring back. She huffed but smiled before she disappeared into the bathroom.

Renee pulled back walking over to the dresser and pulling out a few tissues to wipe her eyes with.

Rosalie stood off to the side fixing a stray bit of Esme's hair back in place while Renee was off talking with Charlotte. I looked around at everyone and then down at myself, so many emotions coursing through my body that it was becoming all too much.

"Ok, Bella." Alice said reappearing from the bathroom. "I have your something borrowed." She said walking over to me till she was in front of me. Everyone else gathered behind her watching. She opened her palm and inside lay two beautiful silver hair pins. "I wore them on my wedding day and I want you to wear them too." She smiled.

"Oh Alice, they're beautiful. Thank you so much." I said admiring the pins. They had a silver shaped flower with a single a few diamonds in its centre. She reached up and pinned them both on one side of my head. My hair was left down, curled into big waves but pinned up on side and away from my face. That's where she added the pins.

"I have your something blue." Rosalie smiled. She had a white and blue garter hanging off her finger.

"Would you like me to do the honors?" She grinned mischievously. I nodded.

"Thank you Rosalie." I pulled her in for a hug before I sat myself onto the bed allowing her to lift my dress and slip my garter up onto one leg. She fixed my dress back into place and helped me stand up.

"I wore these on my wedding day Bella. They were Carlisle's great grandmothers." Esme said pulling out two beautiful diamond tear drop earrings.

"Oh my God," I gasped. They were beautiful. "Thank you so much." I said turning my head to the side so she could put them on me.

"Complete. You look perfect now." Esme smiled before leaning in and giving me a kiss on the cheek. "Edward is one lucky boy." She said as she pulled back. I felt myself blush.

Renee stepped forward, "Baby, this is from your father and I. I spoke with Esme and then went out and made sure to pick one that would match with your earrings." She explained as she opened up a long jewelry box, inside laying a white gold diamond encrusted bracelet.

"Oh, mum, you shouldn't have." I said as she pulled it out. I held my hand out as she clipped it on around my wrist. "Its too much."

"Nonsense. It's your something new baby. I love you."

"Thank you, I love you too." I said feeling the tears again.

"Oh no you don't." Rosalie yelled. She hurried up to me with a bunch of tissues in her hand. "After the ceremony and the pictures you can cry all you want." She said dabbing my eyes lightly.

"Sorry Rose, its all so much today."

"I know silly. Just messing with you." She smirked.

There was another knock at the door as everyone's eyes snapped to it. Before anyone could get to it, Alice was at the door opening it up. Charlie, Phil, Carlisle, Emmett and Jasper appeared all at the door.

"Come on girls, let's give her a moment with the guys and go see how the groom is coping." Alice called over to Rosalie, Esme, Renee and Charlotte. They all smiled lovingly at me before scurrying out of the room.

"Is his hair still intact?" Rosalie laughed asking the boys as she passed them.

"Just . . . only just." Carlisle laughed along with Emmett and Jasper.

"Watch the dress! I don't need to warn you of the consequences." Alice said pointedly looking each man in the eye before rushing out and shutting the door behind her. Emmett and Jasper rolled their eyes as Carlisle chuckled. Charlie just seemed confused.

Emmett was first to rush over to me. "Little sis, wow!" He said looking me up and down, "Do I even need to tell you how stunning you look? My brother is one lucky shit head." He boomed and laughed. I heard Carlisle sigh in irritation, glancing in our direction before returning to talk to Charlie, Phil and Jasper.

"Thanks Emmett." I said but then punched him playfully in the chest. "Don't speak about him like that." I laughed.

"Sorry, but its true . . . the lucky part I mean." He added quickly. I noticed he had what looked like a frame clutched in one hand. When he saw my eyes dart to it he lifted it up and handed it to me.

"It's from Edward. He wanted me to give this to you." Emmett said. I took the frame from him and looked at it. It was a picture of Edward and I three months ago, the day he proposed. It was after we returned to the house taken on the Ducati he had rented. He was straddling the bike with me straddling him from behind, my face resting on his back, my arms wrapped around him tightly. His head was turned to the side looking at me with a soft loving smile. There was a little note attached to the frame.

Three months ago and now one more hour left… I love you

I tear slipped out and landed on the picture. Before I could swipe it, Emmett's hand reached out and wiped away my tears with his thumb. I chuckled at my lack of control, my make up was probably all ruined.

"He loves you more than I can even begin to comprehend sometimes." Emmett said softly. I looked up at him and smiled before pulling him in for a hug. He wrapped his big arms around me, hugging me tight.

"I love him so much too, Emmett." I mumbled into his chest.

"I know you do. And I couldn't have asked for a better girl to become a part of my family. You truly are a great girl Bella. You have stolen all our hearts, you and Brady. I love you little sis." I was taken aback at how sincere and serious he sounded. I felt my tears freely streaming down my face now but Emmett quickly wiped them away with his thumb again. "No time for tears. Not in the mood to deal with the pixie for ruining your make up." He said with chuckle.

"Actually Rose did the make up, so you'd have to deal with her." I explained. His smiled faded as he suddenly looked scared. I couldn't help but chuckle. He laughed at my expression.

"What can I say, she has me whipped." He shrugged. I laughed and gave him a kiss on the cheek.

"Thank you Emmett. You know you have been nothing but great to me. I couldn't have asked for a better big brother." He grinned back at me with a wink.

"Good to know." He replied. My eyes darted behind Emmett when I saw Jasper approaching.

"Move it buddy, you're taking up precious time." Jasper said swatting Emmett playfully.

"Alright, alright. See in a few Bella." Emmett winked before walking over to Carlisle and Charlie.

"I don't need to say it again but . . . wow!" Jasper said. I chuckled and blushed.

I pulled him in for a hug, "You all have been nothing but great to me. You and Alice mean so much to me, everything you have done for me and Edward, I could never ever thank you enough." He gave me a kiss on the cheek before pulling back to look me in the eyes.

"It was our pleasure. And I'd like to give the credit to Alice who pushed for Edward to grow some balls and make the first step. The guy was just too nervous." I laughed.

"That made the both of us."

We talked for a little more before Phil approached me giving me a hug. Phil, just like Renee was there in the last two years of my life back in Phoenix. They helped so much with Brady whiled I worked and studied to be able to create a living as a single mum. That was something I could never thank them enough for. There emotional support helped my battle my way through my hardest days. We talked briefly, Phil giving me his blessing for Edward. They seemed to have bonded quite well.

Carlisle was next, hugging and kissing me softly on the cheek as well. He looked so handsome in his black tux and white shirt. His white blond hair perfectly styled.

"Welcome to the family Bella. Thank you for bringing our Edward back. I've never seen him so happy before and I have no one to thank for that but you." He said. I was getting all emotional and really needed to get a grip over myself otherwise I was going to be in constant tears all day. We spoke a little more till I could spot Charlie standing impatiently off to the side waiting for his turn. Carlisle noticed and excused himself ushering Jasper and Emmett out of the room to give me some privacy with Charlie.

Charlie approached slowly. I knew this was not his thing, events, emotions, formalities. And I could tell he was out of his comfort zone but he looked happy, genuinely happy for me. As soon as he was close enough I grabbed him to me and hugged him tight, my tears spilling over. No one knew me like Charlie did, not even Renee. He was there through out high school. He watched my relationship with Jake blossom and grow. He watched us fall in love, get married, have Brady and he was there in that dreaded moment when my life shattered before my eyes. He was there in the hospital and he was there in that first year after the accident when I was nothing but a shell walking around. He dealt with Billy, he helped with Brady all he could and I knew that was a lot for Charlie. And then he was there through out my relationship with Edward, watching me live again, breathe again and smile again. He was my world.

I cried into his chest, hugging him so close to me because I knew if it wasn't for him, I wouldn't have made it. He was my rock. He and Brady were what kept me going and I could never tell him just how much that means to me. For once he didn't hesitate and held me close to him, hugging me and rubbing soothing circles into my back and kissing the top of my head. He wasn't a man of many words but in this moment I knew he understood everything I was conveying through my tears and actions. He knew and I knew. After a few moments of tears I finally got a hold of myself. I managed to choke out a 'thank you' to him as I pulled back and tried as best I could to wipe away my tears carefully.

"I know and I love you. I love you and Brady and now Edward. You three are my family." He knew exactly what I was thanking him for. That's all that was said between us because there were no more words needed.

"I love you too dad." I replied trying to get a full hold of myself. I looked up and could see the red in his eyes as he fought back his own tears.


It was chaos.

Absolute chaos.

I had four women fussing about, three kids and now three men that just walked into my room all of them scurrying around my hotel room, chatting, laughing and squealing. Why am I not with Bella in this moment?

I walked over to the bar, reaching out for my glass of JD before it was snatched out of my reach. My eyes snapped up to the offender to find Carlisle smirking at me and shaking his head. I ran a hand through my hair. I gestured with my hands to the chaos around me.

"You expect me to be sober through all of this?" I asked. He just chuckled at me.

"No. But I expect you to be sober for your bride." As soon as he said that I felt extreme love, impatience, anticipation and excitement overwhelm me. I was dying to see her. I was dying to make her my wife. I was dying to kiss her, to ravish her. I needed her now like I needed the air to breathe.

"I thought so." Carlisle smirked when he saw my expression. "She looks too beautiful for words by the way." Carlisle added with proud glint in his eyes. "And she is doing great."

"Thanks," I muttered. I felt a little hand tap my arm. I turned around and looked down to see Brady looking up at me. I crouched down in front of him to see what he wanted. He was too cute for words in his little tux, although he hasn't been able to stop fiddling with his tie since he put it on.

"How are you little guy?" I asked punching him lightly in the shoulder.

"My tie is annoying me but mummy said that it makes me a big boy." He said proudly. I chuckled.

"Yes it does. And you look real handsome in it too." He blushed.

"You look nice. And Mummy looks very pretty." He said.

"She always does." I said with a smile. "So, are you ready for your task? We can't lose those rings."

"Uncle Emmett has them. He said he'll give them to me just before the ceremony." He explained.

"Good. Because I need those otherwise I can't marry your mummy." He smiled shyly before hugging me tight. "I love you daddy." My heart never failed to soar whenever I heard him call me that. Ever since the day we arrived in Phoenix after I proposed to Bella, Brady began calling me Dad. I made sure to point out that he should only call me that if he wanted to, not because he felt obligated to. He explained that he saw me as his dad already. I don't think I have ever felt such happiness. I saw him as my own son already, I always have. I have such love for him and such pride. It was still all taking some getting used to.

"I love you too Brady."

I let him go where he scurried off to join Peter and Charlotte who were watching TV. Esme walked up to me, a happy glint in her eyes. She pulled me into a hug before giving me a kiss on each cheek.

"You know how much I love you. Your dad and I are so . . . proud of you. Bella is perfect for you and it . . . makes me happy to no end to see how much love . . . you have for each other." She said as tears started streaming down her face. I wiped them away with the back of my fingers and hugged her tight again.

"I love you too mum."

"Ok, everyone the ceremony will commence in half an hour so can everybody get themselves over to the chapel." Emmett bellowed. Everyone said their good byes and good lucks to me as they scuffled out of the room to head to the chapel. Carlisle stayed behind with me as he was going to head down to the chapel with me once it was time.

"You hanging ok?" Carlisle asked me. I nodded, running a hand through my hair. I knew it was all over the place because I couldn't keep my hands out of it but I couldn't be bothered to fix again.

We sat back and tried to chill for about ten minutes, trying to calm down from the chaos and calm my nerves. We chatted together comfortably till it was time to leave. We were staying at the Casa Del Mar hotel where the ceremony was being held by the beach in a small chapel followed by the reception in one of the hotel dining rooms held for special occasions. There were only about 20 or so guests all together, just our family and a couple of our close friends.

We made our way to the chapel, my nerves escalating with each step that brought me closer to it. I tried taking deep breaths to remain some sort of calm. As soon as Carlisle and I stepped into the chapel everyone's eyes snapped to me, all reassuring and proud smiles plastered on their faces. I smiled back and nodded in recognition as I made my way to the front of the church while Carlisle took his seat beside Esme in the front row.

The celebrant, Joe came over and greeted me. Bella and I had met with him three days ago when we arrived here. He was a really nice and laid back celebrant, letting us take control over how we wanted the ceremony to go. We talked for a few minutes while I tried to fight back my nervousness.

I spotted Seth entering the chapel. He walked up toward me, "She's here," He grinned patting me on the back before taking his seat in the front beside Jasper and Rosalie. When the soft melody of Pachelbel's Canon D began to filter through the church, everyone turned toward the door in their seats. My heart began racing at incredible speed and I took repeated deep breaths to calm my nerves.

Alice and Emmett were first to appear. Alice looked absolutely stunning as she gracefully made her way down the isle beside Emmett. Her eyes kept glancing between me and a little at Jasper when he came into her view. She had a big grin on her face the whole time. Emmett kept winking at me and taking quick glances toward Rosalie. They reached the front of the chapel where Alice made her way to left side. Emmett came to stand beside me, patting me hard on the back I almost stumbled forward, everyone laughed at the show. I shook my head and refrained from hitting him back but I couldn't fight my own laugh. Next to appear was Charlotte in her white dress with a silver sash around her waist. Peter and Brady were on either side of her, the three of them trying to walk in sync with each other. I can't begin to explain how cute the three of them looked as they walked side by side. Charlotte was timidly throwing rose petals onto the isle as she made her way down. Peter was scanning the crowd casually as he walked while Brady looked tense and uncomfortable but a forced smile on his face. I had to hold back a laugh at the sight. Brady held a pillow with our wedding rings tied onto it for security. They made it to the front of the chapel, Brady and Peter moving to the right side in front of Emmett, while Charlotte stood in front of her mum on the left side of the alter. Brady grinned up at me, seeming relieved his walk was over.

I patted him lightly on the shoulder as he turned to face the entry where everyone was waiting for Bella and Charlie to appear.

At this point, the sound of everyone's scuffle as they stood up waiting for Bella and Charlie echoed through the church. My hands began to shake a little. I felt like screaming I was so anxious to see her. I felt Emmett's hand on my shoulder, giving me a light squeeze. As soon as she appeared, my breath hitched. Everyone disappeared, my eyes zoned in on Bella in her white gown looking more beautiful than I have ever seen her. I felt all my anxiety, stress and panic of the day drift away as our eyes met. She smiled softly at me and I could tell her eyes were glistening with tears. I couldn't look away even if I wanted to, she had me sucked in. They made it to us and I was dying to reach out and grab her but I couldn't of course.

"Who brings this woman to marry this man?" Joe asked.

"Her mother and I do." Charlie replied, his voice slightly breaking at the last word. I saw Bella reassuringly squeeze his hand.

Charlie took my hand and gave me half a hug before turning to back to Bella and placing her small hand within mine. I felt complete as soon as we touched, like a void had been filled. I gazed into her eyes as she smiled back at me, her beauty radiating off of her in intense waves. I have never felt such happiness and love before like I did in that moment. I gave her my crooked smile before we both turned to face Joe.

"Welcome family and friends. We are gathered here today to join in the marriage of Edward and Bella. This is the time that you have chosen to become husband and wife. We are here not only to witness your commitment to each other, but to wish you every happiness in your future life together. Marriage is founded on sincerity and understanding which leads to tolerance, confidence and trust. We believe that those qualities which have attracted you both to each other, can be best developed during a life spent together. A happy marriage will enable you to establish a home with love and stability where your family and friends will always be welcome.

Joe continued, "Two lives, two people, so very different, yet so similar. Together we stand as one, sharing our future as it comes. The past is that past. Buds are yet to blossom, with care and trust, the best is yet to be revealed. Honesty and kindness, are the fruits of love. Lord bless this day and always to enrich us so our love will never end. Before you are joined together in marriage in my presence and in the presence of your family and witnesses, I am bound to remind you of the solemn and firm nature of the relationship into which you are about to enter. Marriage as most of us understand it, is the voluntary commitment of a man to a woman and a woman to a man to the exclusion of all others and is entered into with the desire, the hope and the firm intention that it will last for life.

"If you shall face one another." Joe smiled at us. Bella and I turned to face each other and I couldn't help the grin that spread across my face as I stared back at her, sucking and absorbing all her beauty. She smiled lovingly at me, squeezing my hand.

"Edward, do you take Bella, to be your wedded wife?" Joe asked.

My grin grew even bigger, "Of course."

"An I do would have worked."Joe chuckled. Everyone in the audience laughed with him. I hadn't realized what I said. Bella giggled lightly. I was too lost in her to really think about what I was saying.

"I do." I corrected.

"Bella, do you take Edward, to be your wedded husband?" Joe asked smiling at Bella.

Bella winked at me and I could tell she was fighting back tears, "I do," Her voice cracked. I squeezed her hand knowing it was all I could do.

Joe spoke, "The following is a reading from the Corinthians that Edward, Bella and I decided upon.

"Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited, it is never rude or selfish, it does not take offense and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people's faults, but delights in the truth. It is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope. It is always ready to endure whatever comes. True love does not come to an end."

Throughout the reading, our eyes were locked, never drifting nor straying for one another. She was it. She was my world and my life and I could feel it inside of me so deep. As Joe finished the reading, I could see Bella's eyes welling up again. I mouthed an I love you to her hoping it would help but it just made it worse as a single tear spilled over and slipped down her face. I reached my hand out and wiped it away gently with my thumb, my eyes never leaving hers.

"Now it is time for Edward and Bella to declare their love for one another through their vows. Their vows being a representation of the love they have for one another, the promise they declare to each other."

Bella and I had memorized some vows from a book thinking it would be better than repeating after Joe. We both agreed to steer away from writing our own as it could become quite intimate and too emotional for us to express in front our family and friends.

I knew I was first and I was trying to fight back the nervousness I felt. I took a deep breath and held Bella's hand tight in mine, "Bella . . . 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."

Another stray tear slid down Bella's cheek as she sniffled lightly, her bottom lip quivering. I wanted to pull her to me and hug her tight against me but I had to wait, not much longer now.

"Bella," Joe encouraged.

"Edward . . ." Her voice broke. She paused for a moment, clearing her throat and looking down at her feet for a second, I think to try and gain control over her emotions. I squeezed her hand and let my thumb rub circles against her knuckles. She looked up at me and smiled before she tried again, "Edward, I love you. You are my best friend. Today . . . 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." As soon as the last word left her mouth, tears began streaming down her face. I squeezed her hands, and I could see from the corner of my eye everyone sniffling and wiping tears away. She had made everyone cry. This time she mouthed an I love you to me. I grinned like a fool.

"May I please have the rings?" Joe asked. Brady appeared from behind me and walked up to Joe holding out the pillow. Joe carefully removed the rings and smiled down at Brady, "Thank you Brady."

"You're welcome sir," Brady smiled. He looked at the now empty pillow with furrowed brows. He turned to Emmett and held out for him. Everyone laughed while Emmett ruffled Brady's hair.

"You keep that." Emmett said trying not to laugh.

"Ok," Brady said not seeming too please before he returned to stand beside Peter.

"Ok, Edward, please repeat after me." Joe said. "This ring represents my affection for you, and my commitment to you. It shows the world I will always love you, cherish you and honor you, for all the days of my life."

I repeated after him gazing into Bella's eyes before slipping her ring onto her finger. Bella sniffled again as she looked up from her hand to me and grinned.

"Bella, now it's your turn, if you could please repeat after me. This ring represents my affection for you, and my commitment to you. It shows the world I will always love you, cherish you and honor you, for all the days of my life."

Bella repeated after Joe, her voice sounding stronger than before as she slipped my ring onto my finger. I couldn't help but let out a relieved chuckle which caused Bella to giggle lightly at me.

"Because, Edward and Bella you have expressed your love and commitment, and promised each other the joy of all your days before us, it gives me great honor and pleasure to pronounce you husband and wife. Now, Edward, I can tell you've waited impatiently throughout this ceremony but you may now kiss your beautiful bride." Joe said and I couldn't have waited any longer. I grinned at her before pulling her to me but I didn't need to pull too much as she had begun to close the gap. I leaned down till our lips touched, both of us humming lightly as soon as we made contact. I let my lips move against hers for minute before pulling back not wanting to give everyone a show. Bella grinned up at me before throwing her arms around my neck.

"I love you so much." She whispered into my ear.

"I love you so much." I repeated before giving her a quick kiss on the cheek.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to introduce you to Mr. and Mrs. Edward Anthony Cullen." Joe said. I grabbed Bella's hand, my grin etched into my face as we turned to face everyone. I could see our family all with teary eyes as they all smiled back at us.

I felt Brady by my side. I turned to him and have him a quick hug before I let him go to Bella where he wrapped his arms around her legs. Bella laughed, leaning down to kiss his forehead and hug him tight. We walked out of the chapel and stood outside where our family and friends gathered around us to give their congratulations and love.

"Seth!" Bella exclaimed throwing herself into his arms. He hugged her tight, lifting her off the floor as he laughed. As soon as she let her down Bella grabbed back onto my hand.

"I know I already told you before but you do look stunning Bella." Seth said. "And you Edward, lets just say you look handsome." Seth said smirking at me. I patted him on the shoulder.

"Thank you and we really appreciate the fact that you flew down here for us, really." I explained.

"I wouldn't have missed it for the world. Anything to see this girl smile." Seth said smiling at Bella.

Once everyone had made their rounds, they all began departing toward the dining room where the reception was being held. The photographer that we had booked came over to us and directed Bella, Emmett, Alice and Peter, Charlotte, Brady and me toward the beach and shore. He took photos of all us. Some of them posed and some just of us mucking around on the beach.

I took my shoes off at one point and carried Bella, pretending I wanted to throw her in the water, causing her to squeal loudly. Brady and Peter found that amusing and began cheering me on. It was amazing how they'd sacrifice her dress and all for a little entertainment. But I guess kids don't think too rationally. Once we finished everyone headed off to the dining room. I told Emmett to give us a minute, I really wanted Bella on my own for a bit.

Once they had all disappeared, I pulled her to me and crashed my lips to hers. Her lips parted for me immediately as I let my tongue seek hers, moaning at how sweet she tasted. We made out for bit before I pulled back for air and mostly because I wasn't about to tempt myself to the point of no return.

"I love you." I said into the crook of her neck hugging so close to me.

"I love you Edward." She said placing delicate kisses along my neck and jaw.

"I haven't told you yet but you literally took my breath away as soon as you appeared in that Chapel. You look absolutely stunning and so sexy in this dress." I said grasping her ass and pushing her against me. She bit her lip before burying her face into my chest.

"I want you so bad Edward." She whispered but it came out muffled.

"Me too baby. Fuck I can't wait to have you alone tonight."

I held her a little longer till I knew we really had to be heading back. I slipped my shoes on which was irritating because I had sand all over my feet which I had to dust off best I could, before we made our way hand in hand toward our reception.

Carlisle offered to introduce us but just as he was about to speak into the microphone, I saw Emmett appear beside him and take the microphone out of Carlisle's hand, shaking his head at him. I knew Emmett with a microphone wouldn't be good. The guy didn't need a microphone he was loud enough. I groaned which caused Bella to laugh.

"Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3." I groaned louder at Emmett's immaturity. "Alright, everyone I would like to introduce to you all the couple of the evening, my little bro and now little sis, Edward and Bella Cullen!" Emmett boomed into the microphone. Bella and I walked in hand in hand and spoke to everyone briefly before taking our seats. Eating was the first thing on the agenda as everyone dug into their food. I wasn't really hungry and neither seemed to be Bella as we were both too excited to eat. While everyone ate we just talked to each other, flirting and joking around. I couldn't keep my hands off her and I had to keep reminding myself it would only be a matter of hours now.

After the food we it was time for cake cutting. We cut the cake and toasted everyone with champagne. I fed Bella a piece while Bella fed me a piece. I purposely made sure to get some on the side of her mouth. Before she could lick it or wipe it off I leaned down and licked it off myself, earning a few whistles from the crowd and a very loud 'Get a room!' from Emmett.

I led Bella to the dance floor, and pulled her to me, one hand resting on her waist while the other linked into hers. Her free hand found my shoulder where she let her fingers stroke the hair at the nape of my neck occasionally.

Our wedding song that we both chose began to play and that's when I filtered everyone out of my vision and focused on my Bella and how perfect she was for me.

Savage Garden, I knew I loved you before I met you.

Maybe it's intuition
but some things you just don't question
Like in your eyes, I see my future in an instant
And there it goes,
I think I found my best friend
I know that it might sound
more than a little crazy
but I believe...

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

There's just no rhyme or reason
Only the sense of completion
And in your eyes, I see
the missing pieces I'm searching for
I think I've found my way home
I know that it might sound
more than a little crazy
but I believe...

I gazed into her warm brown eyes as she stared back at me. My heart was swelling with so much love for her. When I looked at her I saw my life, my soul and my everything. I could all the emotions of the day weighting down on me now. I held her against me as close as she could go. I never wanted to let her go.

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life
A thousand angels dance around you
I am complete now that I've found you

Bella was made perfect for me, for me to love and cherish her like she was made to be cherished. She has gone through so much heart ache in her life already and I will make sure to rid her of that. To make sure she never suffers again. She was mine and I was going to love her with all my heart.

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life.

As the song ended it brought us back to reality. Bella pulled back and smiled warmly at me. I kissed her softly only to be interrupted by Emmett's booming voice. I groaned as Bella chuckled.

"Time for the speeches and we all know little Eddie that you have been waiting all night just to hear what embarrassing stories I could come up with." Emmett grinned mischievously at me as I rolled my eyes at him. I pulled Bella with me to our table where I sat her in my lap. I wasn't ready to let her out of my grasp yet.

"Ok, firstly I would just like to thank everyone on behalf of Edward and Bella for making the trip down here. They are immensely grateful to have you all here today to share this memorable and special day with them.

"I just need to say this now Bella, I think . . . no scrap that, I know everyone is this room will agree with me when I say that you look absolutely breath taking today, you really do. And as for Edward . . . well he just looks stunned the poor guy." Emmett laughed. Everyone erupted in laughter with him while I just shook my head, trying not to laugh too.

"I won't be cruel and embarrass you today bro but I'll say this, I think its safe to say that by giving me this honor today, Edward has finally admitted that I am the best man. I know it wasn't easy to admit bro but thanks, it was about time you stopped being in denial." Bella chuckled beside me, kissing me on the cheek.

"You're my best man," She whispered into my ear. I hugged her even closer to me.

"I think many people ask themselves what is love? Well, if there are any doubts I would like you to look at the couple sitting over there who seem to be lost in their own little bubble." Emmett said pointing in our direction. "Edward and Bella are love. Their love for each other radiates off of them in waves that sometimes I find myself getting sucked into it myself." He grinned.

"I couldn't be happier for the two of you. You truly have found soul mates in one another." Emmett said looking over at us. Bella turned me with a loving smile. I pulled her face to me and kissed her softly, wanting the moment to never end. She pulled back before placing another quick kiss on my lips and then rested her head on my shoulder.

Emmett continued, "If everyone could raise their glasses with me. To Edward and Bella." He toasted. Once the toast was done, music blared out of the speakers and everyone got up to dance. Brady came over to us and I suggested he dance with his mum. He grinned and grabbed her hand, pulling her to the dance floor.

I danced with Esme and then Alice while Bella switched to dance with her father. Once that song was finished I went searching for Renee. I found her off to the side chatting with Rosalie. I pulled her away and asked her to dance with me which she happily agreed to. She was so different to Bella but all the same at the same time. I could just see how much love she had for Bella and how happy she was for the both of us. We talked a little as we danced and I noticed then that Carlisle was dancing with Bella. I smiled at the sight, just loving the fact that my parents adored her so much. Once I was done with Renee, I found Charlotte tugging at my pants wanting to dance with me. I smiled down at her, lifting her to stand on my feet, guiding her in our dance. Bella was now dancing with Emmett. The poor girl was going to be exhausted after all this.


I couldn't begin to explain how happy I felt. I felt like screaming and jumping and dancing to let it all out of my system. If felt like screaming at the top of my lungs in excitement. I couldn't wait to be alone with him, to have him in my arms, to spend the rest of my life with him. He was my everything.

My feet were beginning to get sore from all the dancing. I just wanted to steal Edward away and have him alone. The song finished and Emmett leaned down and kissed me on the cheek.

"How bout we get you to your husband, yeah?" He smiled. I nodded with a grin as we made our way across the dance floor to Edward. Edward was hugging Charlotte as we approached them. Emmett held her hand and led her away while Edward snaked his arms around my waist and pulled me to him.

"You look so beautiful." He whispered into my ear. My eyes fluttered closed at the feel of his breath against my skin.

After the bouquet toss which Rosalie caught and the garter toss which Seth caught, we said our emotional goodbyes to everyone. I cried so much when I was saying bye to Brady as I wasn't going to see him for two weeks. Edward and I were going to Bora Bora, Tahiti for 2 weeks. We organized to fly to Phoenix for a few days to pick up Brady as he will be staying with Renee and Phil, before flying to Florida for a few days to take Brady to Disney World and then head back home. Edward and I agreed it would be nice to start off our marriage as a family. Once I was cried out, Edward and I headed out to the limo that was waiting for us. We both got in and as soon as the door was closed, Edward pulled me into his lap so that I was straddling it. I had to adjust my dress though to make it possible.

He grabbed my face with both hands and kissed me passionately, love dripping from his lips as he moved them so tenderly against mine. As soon as our tongues made contact we both moaned into each other's mouth. My hands were fisted tightly into his hair wanting nothing more than to have him inside of me.

"I love you Bella so much, so, so much." He panted as his lips found my neck. My head fell back as my eyes closed, pulling his mouth harder onto my neck. Two weeks of nothing has been hell for the both of us and now we were finally able to have each other that way.

"I love you too. More than ever." I panted as I began grinding myself against his erection. He stilled my movements by my hips and pulled back to look into my eyes, his eyes darkened and burning with lust and desire.

"I won't be able to hold back if you keep that up." I smirked at him before climbing off his lap knowing that would be safest for the both of us. He pulled me into his side, wrapping his arm around me as I rested my head onto his shoulder.

There was nothing that could hold me back from happiness in this moment. I smiled to myself in content feeling so at ease and at comfort with my life.

I found true love again and nothing was going to take that away from me.

Likey? No likey? Let me know.
