But yeah wedding day i hope you enjoy the chatper :D
The door opened and the music changed it keys as the little flower girls started walking in followed by my bridesmaids. Kira and I came in next and I looked up to see Athrun in all his glory.
There was silence as I approached the altar in slow steps just staring into Athrun's emerald eyes. I saw his breath hitch and I smiled at him brightly. He gave me a wicked smile and I felt my heart skip a beat. This was it. It was the moment where all my dreams were going to come true. I was finally going to marry my prince charming, whom I loved more then life. I felt all our memories flash through my mind and I stopped in front of him. Athrun had both his arms out to hold mine.
I placed my hands in his as he helped me up the two steps and I stood in front of him.
A priest was there and to me it felt like only Athrun and I were there.
He started of by saying, " Dearly beloved it is a time of celebration, for two people have come together and found mutual joy. They have shared their lives and decided to create a covenant between themselves, a partnership guided by spirit and support by our community. Athrun Zala and Cagalli Yula Attha ask all you in attendance in body and spirit to pledge your support and encouragement for them to keep true to their vows.
The Minister then lit two white taper candles.
"We are all children of the light. I light this candle, which represents the sun, our spiritual father. I light this candle, which represents the moon, our spiritual mother. As these flames burn bright and strong, may their light bring this union between Athrun Zala and Cagalli Yula Attha to grow in joy and love."
He scattered flower petals in a complete circle around us.
"Let your love be like the flowers of the earth, beautiful and divine, ever growing, spreading love and joy throughout the Earth. May you live within a circle of love and may your unity be a thing of beauty and sweetness. May your love dance in eternal circles of time, with the dance of the earth with the sacredness of life."
He asked us to pick a candle each. We turned to each other and held our flames together to make one.
Minister said, "And you begin your journey of life shared, separate beings that have come together into one light, one love. Many are the years you will share if you keep your vows, your sacred trust. May the sacred winds whisper joy into your life. May you take delight in each other for all your days. You are forever changed from this day forward. May this fire of love kindle your passions for each other throughout all your years. May your love rise anew, an eternal flame to light the day. May you grow old together and share a happy home."
He asked us to repeat a verse.
"Beloved, I seek to know you, and ask for the wisdom to love you as you are. I will take joy in you and in our life together. You are to me the whispering of the tides, the seduction of summer's heat. You are my friend, my lover. Grow old and wise with me. I look forward to the life before us of rainbows and sunsets and a willingness to share all things. I love you. I adore you."
We both paused comprehending what we just said and smiled. It was perfect.
The Minister asked us to say our vows to each other starting with me.
"I, Cagalli Yula Attha take you, Athrun Zala, to be my husband, secure in the knowledge that you will be my constant friend, my faithful partner in life, and my one and only true love. On this day, I give to you in the presence of God and all those in attendance my sacred promise to stay by your side as your wife in sickness and in health, in joy and in sorrow, as well as through the good times and the bad. Athrun, you have filled my world with meaning. You have made me so happy and more fulfilled as a person. Thank you for taking me as I am; loving me, and welcoming me into your heart. I promise to always love you, respect you as an individual, and to be faithful to you forever. I promise to love you without reservation, comfort you in times of distress, encourage you to achieve all of your goals and dreams, laugh with you and cry with you, grow with you in mind and spirit, always be open and honest with you, and cherish you for as long as we both shall live."
Athrun couldn't seem to stop himself from not kissing me, so he did gently on my forehead and whispered, "Love you," proceeding to say his own vows.
"I Athrun Zala, take you Cagalli Yula Attha as my best friend, my love for life as my wife. I promise you my deepest love, my fullest devotion, my tenderest care, through the pressures of the present and the uncertainties of the future, I promise to be faithful to you. I promise to love you, to commit to you, and support you. I pledge to respect your unique talents and abilities, to lend you strength for all of your dreams. You have shown me what love feels like and for that I thank you. You are everything I need and at this moment I know all of my prayers have been answered and that all of my dreams have come true. I praise God for you Cagalli: for all of your love and constant friendship. I know that our love is heaven sent and I promise to be here for ever and always. From this day forward, you shall not walk alone. My heart will be your shelter and my arms will be your home. As I have given you my hand to hold, I give you my life to keep. Like an angel who fell on my lap…literally, I will love you for as long my heart beats."
I could hardly breathe.
The Minister asked for the rings to be brought out and Athrun and I took our rings for each other.
"The circle is the symbol of the sun, earth, and universe. It is the symbol of peace. Let this ring be the symbol of unity and peace in which your two lives are joined in one unbroken circle. Wherever you go, return unto one another and to your togetherness," the minister said.
Athrun placed the ring on my finger and said, "I give this ring in remembrance of this hour, a symbol of love that is beautiful, endless and complete."
I did the same and said, "I give this ring in remembrance of this hour, a symbol of love that is beautiful, endless and complete."
"Athrun Zala and Cagalli Yula Attha, you have now affirmed before your families and friends your love and your caring for each other. You have come from different backgrounds. You have walked different paths. You are different individuals. Your love has transcended these differences. In the years before you, may the richness of the traditions that have nurtured you enhance and brighten your lives as you help to create and shape the future."
"May the challenges of your life together be met with courage and optimism. May you learn from your failures and grow in your achievements. May life bless you with children, friends, and family in a wide network of mutual support and enjoyment. May you face pain, toil, and trouble with a stout but light heart. May you share with others the radiance of your seasons of joy and pleasure. May you always remember that laughter is the medicine of God."
The Minister joined the right hand of Athrun and I and said, "Now that Athrun and Cagalli have given themselves to each other by solemn vows, with the joining of hands and the giving and receiving of a ring, I pronounce that they are husband and wife. Congratulation you may now kiss the bride."
Athrun swept my in his arms and whispering and short, "finally" in my ear and gave me a sweet heart warming kiss. We broke apart after hearing a cough and stepping away as the minister said, "Ladies and gentlemen I now would like to introduce for the first time, Mr. and Mrs. Zala."
There was a huge uproar of applauses as Athrun and I walked down the aisle and to a private room for us before we had to go to the reception.
"I'm surprised I didn't throw up," I said sitting down on a couch placing a hand over my abdomen.
Athrun closed the door behind me and said, "See we're going to have a good behaved kid."
"He definitely got that from you," I said kissing Athrun's lips.
"Does it feel different being married?" Athrun asked kissing my bare shoulder.
"I don't feel anything," I said, "Yet at least."
"You're wearing one very beautiful dress," Athrun said, "I thought I was going to fall."
I smiled and said, "You're lucky I didn't fall in these heels," sticking my feet out.
Athrun was about to take off my shoes when the door opened and in came our gang with congratulations. I was smiling and chatting with my girls while Athrun was on the other side of the room with his guys.
"So where are you two going on your honeymoon?" Mir asked
I had a huge blank as I realized that Athrun and I never talked about our honeymoon.
"It's a surprise," Athrun said intervening and pulling me to his side.
"How come I didn't know about this surprise?" I asked
"Because you didn't ask," He said cheekily.
"Guys time to head out for the reception," Shiho said, "You know the most important part of the wedding."
"I liked the getting married part," I said with fiddling with the bouquet in my hand.
"I liked watching you walk down the aisle looking like a goddess part," Athrun said kissing my temple.
I beamed at him as while he held my hand as we walked to the reception area, where the party just begun. After sitting down and receiving many congratulations and showers of presents, which were now filling up a room, dinner had begun. After multiple toasts, some, which made me, tear up; it was time for the ceremonies.
I had to throw my bouquet.
"Okay everyone?" I asked the crowd of ladies behind me. They all had huge smiles on their faces.
I turned around closed my eyes and tossed the bouquet. Instantly there were shrieks, yells and hollers. And I turned around to see who the person was who caught my flowers.
There standing was Lacus looking quite dumbfounded. I cheered for her and whispered to Kira who was looking at Lacus with a smile, "You know Kira the person who catches the garter has to put it up her leg."
His face paled as a person announced that the garter ceremony was next.
"Do I really have to do this?" I asked Athrun who was kneeling in front of me as I was sitting on a chair.
"Tradition," Athrun said, "Very important."
"What kind of tradition is pulling a piece of fabric down my leg?" I asked, "Especially in front of all these people."
"You're lucky I'm not pulling it off with my teeth," Athrun grinned, and then said lowly, "I'll do that with your other one in our honeymoon bedroom."
"What a cute bridal brush angel," Athrun said kissing my forehead, getting up briefly
And the night went on.
There was food, dance, and laughter. Athrun and I had our first dance. We stared into each other's eye, shining with happiness and love. I never could have felt more complete then how I did at that moment, in his arms as he just couldn't stop kissing my lips over and over again.
It was magical.
I danced with Kira next and Athrun with his mother…well my mother now too.
"You look beautiful Cagalli," Kira said into my ear.
I laughed and jokingly said, "This will be my first and last time."
Kira laughed and said "You are always my beautiful little sister"
I smiled….paused "Hey, I'm older."
"I'm happy for you. I know I haven't spent as much brotherly time with you…as much as siblings spend growing up, but I couldn't have asked for a more perfect sister you grew up to be. And I'm so proud of you," Kira said looking like his eyes were tearing up.
I couldn't tell I was crying. Horomones…yep it definitely has to be that.
I hugged Kira tight…I was so blessed to have such an amazing brother.
The music changed once more, and I was dancing with Patrick.
"My daughter is glowing," was the first thing he said.
"Your daughter is the happiest woman alive," I grinned, glancing over to look at Athrun who was dancing with Lacus.
"Athrun is a lucky man, and more then that, I am the luckiest father to be able to have such an amazing son," he whispered, "Thank you Cagalli for coming into his life."
"Dad, you know I wouldn't want it any other way," I said, "I mean look at those genes."
Patrick laughed, "You are way too good for my old ego."
"I agree," Lenore said coming up to us, "Cagalli, you should rest a bit. I'm sure your feet must be hurting."
She was right they felt like they were swelling.
Athrun's hands slipped around my waist, he kissed my temple and said "Yeah let's go cut the cake and we'll find you a place to sit."
I looked up at Athrun and just hugged him tight. I closed my eyes briefly, hoping this wasn't a dream.
