"You're up next Bells," I heard Charlie say.

"Ok," I told him taking a deep breath.

A lot has happened over the past two years. After that night in the meadow Edward and myself took things slow and got to know each other again. He moved back to Forks shortly afterwards telling Aro that he would always be ready to play again, but that it was time to go home. Of course there were times where Aro called and had him go play, and I was able to go on some of the trips when I wasn't working. He was my best friend, my love, who knew what to say. We were more open to each other and always able to speak our minds. I had never been more in love with him up until today. That's what brings me to where I am today. I took Charlie's arm and looked down the aisle looking at my future. He was wearing a black suite with a sapphire blue tie, and was smiling that famous smile of his. I met his eyes and saw love and happiness in them.

When Charlie took my hand from his and put it in Edward's, I knew that I was home.

"We are gathered here today," Jasper started to say. Him and Emmett decided to have a contest to see who would marry us. Edward said that whoever wrote the best ceremony got the honor. We already knew who it would be, but it was fun watching them. Jasper made his all about love, trust, and how we got to where we are today. Emmett on the other hand had to throw in his one-liners. So Edward agreed that since Jasper would marry us, Emmett would get to be the best man.

I looked into Edward's eyes and couldn't help but smile.

"I Edward Anthony Masen Cullen," he spoke saying his vows. "Take you Isabella Marie Swan as my wife. I promise to always be here for you, and not runaway when things are bad. I love you with all my being from today until forever. This I promise you."

He took my hand and slide a simple gold band on it. I felt his hand wipe a tear away from my cheek. I took a deep breath knowing it was my turn.

"I Isabella Marie Swan," I said looking at him and smiling. "Take you Edward Anthony Masen Cullen as my husband. I promise to always be here for you with open arms. I love you with all my heart and always will from now until forever. This I promise you."

Like him I took his hand and slide a simple gold band where it would stay for forever.

"I now pronounce you husband and wife," Jasper said smiling. "Edward kiss your bride."

"Yes sir," he told Jasper. He straightened up, saluting him and then the two of them laughing. It must have been an inside joke between them.

Edward wrapped his arms around my waist and pulled me close to him. I in return wrapped my arms around his neck, looking into his emerald eyes. He lowered his lips to mine. It was a soft kiss that started out slow with passion and I welcomed it. The next thing I know is that his is dipping me along with the kiss. I could hear all of our guests laughing and some were even cheering.

"Oh right Edward," Emmett said cheering.

When he finished and stood me back up I couldn't help but blush. I tried to hide my face in his chest, and could hear him laughing.

"I love you Mrs. Cullen," he whispered in my ear.

"As I love you Mr. Cullen," I told him. We walked back down the aisle hand in hand to our future.

What can I say. The past two years have been the best. There's not a day that goes by that my love for Bella grows. After that night in the meadow I moved back to Forks. I told Aro that I appreciated everything that he did for me, but that it was time to come home. He understood and there are times when he calls for me to come and play. Of course I can never say no, and I am beyond happy when Bella gets to come with me.

I looked down the aisle and saw her walking down the aisle with Charlie. She was breathtaking and I swear I had to pick my mouth up off the floor. Her dress was a simple A-line sweetheart cut, and a sapphire blue sash tied around her waist. What can I say? I love seeing her in blue. Her hair was done in loose curls that hung down her back. I smiled at her and she smiled back at me. We put the past between us and never mentioned it again. So when I looked into her eyes I no longer saw pain and hurt. Instead I saw love, happiness, and hope. Charlie put her hand into mine, and I knew that I was home at last.

"We are gathered here today," I heard Jasper say, but I couldn't pay attention to him. Instead I looked at Bella and thought back to the day I proposed to her six months ago.

Six months earlier…

It was a cold snowy day in Forks, and I had just gotten home from playing in Washington D.C. I knew that Bella was at the high school teaching so I headed over to mom's. Luckily for me she was there sitting in the den reading.

"Mom," I said getting her attention.

"Hey honey," she said. "When did you get in?"

"Not long ago," I told her. "Can I ask you something?"

"Sure," she said closing her book.

"It's about Bella," I said nervously.

"So help me Edward," she started to say. "If you leave her again."

"Mom," I said stopping her. "I'm not doing that again. I would never do that to her again. I could never or would I ever put her through that again."

"Good," she said relieved. "Now what about Bella."

"I was wondering ," I said then stopped.

"Wondering what," she said puzzled.

"If I could give Bella grandmother Elizabeth's ring," I said looking at her.

"I think that's a wonderful idea," she said getting up to hug me.

"Thank you," I told her.

She turned towards the wall safe and opened it. After looking for a minute she pulled a small black box out and handed it to me. I opened the lid and saw the oval face with tiny diamonds all over it. I closed the lid and hugged mom before leaving.

I had my girl, the perfect ring, but all that I needed was to ask her. Besides myself, my mom was the only other person to know that I was going to propose. I couldn't tell anyone for the fear of them telling her. I already knew where, and how I was going to propose. The question was when was I.

*****Two Days Later*****

The snow had let up to where it was barely flurrying. She had come over to my parents and I decided that that we should go out and enjoy the snow. We built snowmen, made snow angels, and acted as if we were both five years old again. I looked over and saw her laughing and having a good time. Today would be the day that I propose to Bella. I made a snowball threw it at her hitting the back of her head.

"Edward," I heard her say turning around to look at me.

"You can't catch me," I told her taking off towards the back of the property.

"You're going to get it Cullen," she said chasing me.

I ran all the way to the meadow, stopping at the swing, and preparing myself for her. When she finally made it to me, I grabbed her and kissed her. Her lips were soft and provided the feeling of innocence.

"Are you happy," I asked her.

"Yes," she replied. "Is something wrong Edward?"

"No," I told her assuring that I was very much indeed happy. "I love you."

"I love you too," she said with a puzzled look on her face. "What's going on Edward?"

"My Bella," I said taking a deep breath. Before I could start saying anything else the snow started to fall steadily. "There's not a day that goes by that I don't love you. I'm grateful for you and for the chance of giving you my heart again."

"Edward," she said but I wouldn't let her finish.

"Bella," I said reaching into my pocket for the box. I tired to get down on one knee but I sunk down in the snow. When I looked at face, she looked as if she was going to cry. "I love you with every ounce of my being. I promise to love you everyday of forever. Will you marry me?"

"Yes," she said. "Yes!"

"Really," I said looking into her eyes.

"Edward," she said trying to pull me up from the snow. "Yes I'll marry you."

When I was finally able to stand up I took the ring out of the box and slide it onto her finger.

"This was my grandmother Elizabeth's ring," I told her.

"It's beautiful," she said looking at it. "I love you."

"I love you too," I told her kissing the tip of her nose. "I had better get you in the house, so that you don't freeze."

"Ok," she said laughing. She hugged herself to me and I held her. Knowing that I was now the luckiest man in the world. When she let me go, I intertwined our hands together and headed back to the house.

"The bride and groom have elected to write their own vows," Jasper said, and then turned looking at me. "Edward would you please say your vows."

"I Edward Anthony Masen Cullen," I spoke saying my vows and taking a deep breath. I looked into her eyes getting lost. "Take you Isabella Marie Swan as my wife. I promise to always be here for you, and not runaway when things are bad. I love you with all my being from today until forever. This I promise you."

I took her hand and slide a simple gold band on it. I looked at her face and saw a tear coming down her cheek. So I took my hand and gently wiped it away.

"I Isabella Marie Swan," she said looking at me and smiling. "Take you Edward Anthony Masen Cullen as my husband. I promise to always be here for you with open arms. I love you with all my heart and always will from now until forever. This I promise you."

She took my hand and slide a simple gold band where it would stay for forever.

"I now pronounce you husband and wife," Jasper said smiling. "Edward kiss your bride."

"Yes sir," I said standing straight up and saluting him. Jasper and myself couldn't help but laugh. The memory of him taking me to the airport that day came flooding back. I told him to look after my sister and he did the same thing to me.

I wrapped my arms around her waist and pulled her closer to me. I got a quick glare from her matron of honor. I knew that Alice would kill me if I missed either her dress or make-up up. I didn't care, I was going to kiss my wife. I liked the way that sounded kissing my wife. When she wrapped her arms around my neck, I looked into her eyes once more. I lowered my lips onto hers. I kissed her softly to start out slow and there was passion in it. I was glad when she welcomed it and kissed me in return with as much passion to match mine. I wanted to have a little bit of fun with her. So I dipped her while I was still kissing her. I could her all of our guests laughing and some were even cheering.

"Oh right Edward," Emmett said cheering.

When I finished kissing her, I stood her back up and watched her blush. How much I loved it when she blushed. I couldn't help but laugh when she tried to hide her face in my chest.

"I love you Mrs. Cullen," I whispered in her ear. I still couldn't believe that she was my wife.

"As I love you Mr. Cullen," she told me. We walked back down the aisle hand in hand to our future.

The End!
