"Are you almost ready Samantha?" Mrs. Benson came into Sam's dressing room, "Oh you look beautiful Sweetheart," she gushed.
Sam looked at herself in the long mirror as Carly fixed her veil. She did look beautiful, "Thank you."
"It's almost time to go," Carly told her looking at the clock on the wall.
"Do I look alright?" Sam asked. "Where's Spencer? How are my babies?"
"Spencer's with Freddie right now and Steven and Addison are with my sister," Mrs. Benson told Sam in a soothing voice.
"Oh Sam you're so lucky," Mel sighed dreamily.
Sam made a face, "I'm not sure that getting married at nineteen constitutes as 'lucky.'"
"Perhaps not always but in your case everything has worked out! It could have been soooo much worse," Mel beamed up at her sister from where she sat on her chaise. She sprung up from her place suddenly, "Here I got you this from Paris," Melanie handed Sam a diamond tennis bracelet.
"Mel! How did you afford this? I can't accept this," Sam tried to hand the bracelet back to her twin.
"Don't, it's for you," Mel took Sam's wrist and clasp the bracelet around it.
"Mel," She protested.
"Shhh. It's the least I could do," Mel smiled sweetly at her sister.
"Sam," Spencer knocked at the door before coming in, "It's show time."
Sam took a deep nervous breath, "Let's go." She grabbed her bouquet and followed Spencer out the door.
The band played as Carly walked out with Gibby and then Melanie with one of Freddie's very attractive cousins. Both girls looked beautiful in their simple, forest green, asymmetrical dress that was simply breathtaking with the addition of ruffles cascading down one shoulder. Your bridal party will love the look and feel of royalty in this cocktail length dress.
Then Sam stood in the door way with Spencer and the song changed to the wedding march. She looked absolutely stunning in her one shoulder taffeta gown with cascading organza ruffles, self fabric flowers and feather accents, semi-cathedral train. Her curly hair was pinned up under her veil which cascaded elegantly around her.
"Wow," Freddie murmured when he saw her. He had a classic black tux with the addition of a forest green vest and tie to match Sam's color scheme.
She walked slowly down the aisle on Spencer's arm. Her gaze never left Freddie's, not even when Steven began to fuss in Mrs. Benson's arms. Today was her day. The babies were taken care of; there was no need to worry.
The ceremony consisted of family and a few close friends. It was just the way Sam wanted it. It was quaint, almost like Sam and Freddie were the only ones there. Then it was time for the vows.
"The couple has opted to write their own vows," The priest told the congregation.
Freddie turned to Sam and took her small, delicate hands into his, "Sam, I'm not going to lie- writing this was extremely difficult. I wasn't sure if I could get my feelings for you in words. We've only been a couple for a short time but I've known you for forever. I know your every quirk and movement. I know when you are feeling down and when you are elated. I can read you like an open book," Sam made a face, "Now, I know you may not like that but I know you well enough to be able to read you and I'm sure that you could count on one hand how many people can do that," Sam was beginning to tear up, "You are the mother of my children and I love you more than anything, you, Steven and Addison are my world. I would go to the moon and back for you. I promise to love, protect and take care of you until one of us croaks," that got a small chuckled from the guests, "I am the happiest man alive to be able to get to know, love and marry you."
Sam had to wipe away some tears before starting hers, "Damnit Freddie," she let out a nervous laugh. Freddie just smiled at her like he had won the lottery. "Where do I begin?" She swallowed a sob, "We didn't always get along. I'm actually really surprised that we're standing here today. Had you asked me three years ago who I thought I was going to marry your name would have been on the bottom of the list. Now if you had asked Carly or another of our close friends and perhaps even some of our viewers you would've been on the top of their list. But that faithful night brought us together, made us admit our feelings. I wouldn't have wanted to go through this past year with anyone else. You are my knight in shining armor, my Prince Charming, my rock. I love you with all my heart. From this day forward you are my best friend, my faithful partner and my love. I know that after this year we can conquer anything together," she looked up at Freddie who was watching her patiently. He was absorbing, memorizing everything she said, "I will love you forever for better or for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish; from this day forward until death do us part," Sam folded her speech back up and handed it to Carly who was a few steps behind her.
"May I have the rings?" The priest asked. One of the altar boys came up behind him and handed him the velvet pillow that had the three rings, Sam's engagement ring and both of the wedding rings, "Fredward, repeat after me: Samantha, I give you this ring as a symbol of our vows and with all that I am, and all that I have, I honor you. With this ring, I thee wed."
"Samantha, I give you this ring as a symbol of our vows and with all that I am, and all that I have, I honor you. With this ring, I thee wed," Freddie slipped the rings over Sam's delicate finger.
"Now Samantha: Fredward, I give you this ring as a symbol of our vows and with all that I am, and all that I have, I honor you. With this ring, I thee wed."
Fredward, I give you this ring as a symbol of our vows and with all that I am, and all that I have, I honor you. With this ring, I thee wed," Sam was just barely able to choke out the words without bursting into tears.
"I now pronounce you man and wife! You may kiss the bride," the priest proclaimed.
Freddie pulled Sam into his arms and they shared their first kiss as husband and wife. This was not a kiss either of them would ever forget. They broke apart and turned to face their family and friends.
"May I introduce for the first time as husband and wife Mr. and Mrs. Fredward Benson!" The priest's voice boomed throughout the church as Sam and Freddie ran out of the little church as their friends and family pelted them with rice. And I guess you could say they lived happily ever after. 3
