*HERE IS THE FINAL CHAPTER: ENJOY!
Randy stood in a room looking at himself in the mirror as his best man; John, watched on. "Are you ready for this?" he asked.
"I'm more than ready. I've waited for this day since I met Kim. I am definitely ready to make her my wife," said Randy as he fixed his tie.
"It won't be too long until she is Mrs. Kimberly Orton," said John. "I'm happy for you. You and Kim were definitely meant to be together. She makes you happy."
"She does," said Randy with a smile as there was a knock on the door. "Come in."
"Randy, it's time," said the minister.
"All right," he said as he adjusted his tie one more time and then checked himself out in the mirror. "Let's go," he said with a smile as John and his groomsmen walked out of the room behind him to the sanctuary of the church.
Randy walked to the front of the sanctuary behind the minister as he walked past his family and friends as well as Kim's family and friends. Randy was as nervous as he could be as he waited for the ceremony to begin. Randy felt an anxiousness overcome him as the music began to play and the wedding party began to walk in. He smiled as Kim's maid of honor walked in wearing a light blue spaghetti strapped dress with John who was wearing a black tux with a light blue tie matching the dress of the woman he was walking with. They were followed in by Kim's two bridesmaids and Randy's two groomsmen. The moment was getting close as the ring bearer walked in holding the two rings on the light blue pillow that would be the symbol of their eternal love. Randy grew a smile on his face as Gianna and Olivia appeared in the doorway each wearing a light blue dress that fell to their feet, each wearing a light blue bow in their hair. Gianna carried a white basket filled with light blue flower pedals and held the hand of Olivia as they walked down the aisle together. They looked so precious as they slowly made their way to the front of the sanctuary. It was that moment when Kim appeared in the doorway with her father at her side that Randy's smile grew bigger. Tears filled his eyes as he watched Kim walk down the aisle with her father. She limped to the front of the sanctuary but that didn't stop her from looking so beautiful. Her dark hair was hanging down in curls, with a white veil and a tiara. Her white dress was a halter and the bottom dragged slowly behind her. She held a bouquet of light blue flowers in her hand. She had tears in her eyes as she walked to meet her soon to be husband. He looked so handsome in her eyes in his black tux, light blue vest and his light blue tie bringing out his crystal blue eyes that she loved so much. As they reached the altar the minister said, "Let us pray," and went into a prayer. As he finished the prayer he said, "Who gives this woman to this man?"
"I do," said her father with a smile and tears in his eyes. He placed Kim's hand into Randy's and softly kissed her cheek before he joined his wife to watch the ceremony.
The minister began the ceremony by reading from Corinthians where he talked about what love was. "Love is patient, love is kind…." Kim and Randy had the most patient love of anyone in the world. Their love was as kind as could be. He continued on. "….it always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails…" Kim and Randy's love was built on hope it was built on trust.. It was their hope that had brought them this far. Their love was unfailing. They had been through it all but through all those tough times their love had never failed either of them. Each loved the other the same and even more so than before. The minister's words were clear and beautiful. He then had Kim and Randy state their vows which each had written to the other from their hearts. "I understand you two have decided to state your own vows?"
"Yes," said Randy.
"You may read them now," said the minister to Randy.
Randy took Kim's hand and looked into her eyes, "Kim, the day I met you I saw a poor woman being hurt by a man. I didn't know you but I knew that you needed help and I stepped in to help you. And ever since that day I do not regret my decision because you have become the love of my life. It has brought us to this point. Although our relationship didn't start off the best it grew to become the best. You are my entire world, Kim and you are everything to me. We've been through tough times, some of the worst times but we've had some of the best times. It was not long ago when I thought I was going to lose you. You are the love of my life and I would never be able to go on without you. You are everything to me. You came into my life and changed me. I never thought I could love someone as much as I love you. The love I have for you will never die and everyone tells me they're surprised I stayed by your side through it all but that's what love is all about. You can't choose who you fall in love with but once you're in love that love does not die. You love that person through the good times and the bad times. You love them through sickness and health. I love you whether the times we're facing are good or whether they are bad. I will love you through sickness and I will love you through health. I will love you through the rain, I will love you through the sunshine. I will love you no matter what. The love I have for you will never die, it will never end. Our love is about trust and it is about hope. It is about forsaking all others and staying true to each other. Everyday of my life I find it a blessing to wake up next to you and have you in my life. Everyday it is a blessing that I can look into your green eyes and hear your sweet southern voice. It is a blessing for me everyday that you are in my life. I have seen you through your worst and I have seen you through your best and I will continue to see you through no matter what comes our way. We've gone through trials and we've gone through triumphs but no matter what it was we got through it because we love each other. I never understood when people said they loved someone more and more each day until I met you. I can honestly say that I love you more and more each day and I look forward you loving you more and more each day as you become my wife. I love you, Kim," he said with tears in his eyes as he saw her eyes filled with tears.
"Kim," said the minister, "you can state your vows."
"Okay," she said with a shaky voice. She had to get herself together before she spoke. "Randy, people say fairytales don't come true and that there is no such thing as a knight in shining armor but you are proof that there are knights in shining armors. You have been my knight in shining armor since the day I met you and you saved my life. You have saved me from so many situations and came to my rescue numerous times. I know we had our ups and downs but I have not stopped loving you. I have loved you since day 1 and no matter what was thrown our way I never stopped loving you like you never stopped loving me. You have given me the best and treated me as if I were a princess. The day came when I almost died but I didn't. I fought to stay alive not only for our girls but for you. I couldn't leave you. I didn't want to leave you. I wanted my happily ever after. I wanted my happiness. I wanted you to be happy. You stuck by me through it all. You were told I would never be the same, that I would never walk, that I would never talk, you were told I would never be the woman you fell in love with again but that didn't stop you from loving me. You never walked away, you never gave up and that means everything to me. You could have left and gone to someone else but you didn't because our love is that strong that even the worst things can't break us. Randy, you are my prince charming and you've done nothing but make me happy. You gave me a beautiful little girl and as we move forward today I hope to have more children with you and watch our family grow. I was nothing but a fan of wrestling when I met you and I never thought you would even lay eyes on me but miraculously you saw something in me that made you love me and look at us now. You were with me through my trials and I know it wasn't easy when I was helpless and couldn't do anything but you never gave up. That makes me love you more. You helped me through it all and when the triumphs came you were there. You never left my side. You are an amazing man that I am glad that I can call my husband. I never thought fairytales were real and I never thought I would get my happy ending. I thought Prince charming only existed in Disney movies and fairytales but you are living proof that Prince Charming does exist. I love you for everything you have done for me, I love you for being there for me and I love you more each day. I would never change a moment in my life even the bad times because it was the bad times that led me straight to you. I love you, Randy and I can't wait to make you my husband." She had tears in her eyes a she finished her last sentence. They had been through it all and they were still going. They were going to have better and they were going to have worse but no matter what they would have them together.
After they stated their vows the minister took over and asked for the rings. He had each of them place a ring on the other's finger and repeat his words. The rings were a sacred symbol of their love for one another. The ring was a circle because it was never ending like their love. He continued through the ceremony as there were songs sang and words spoken and as it was over he said, "I now pronounce you husband and wife. You may now kiss the bride." Randy looked at Kim and smiled as they both leaned in to share a very passionate kiss. They turned to face their friends and family. "I now introduce to you Mr. and Mrs. Orton!" Their family members and friends stood up and clapped as Randy and Kim made their way down the aisle followed by their wedding party.
Their wedding was everything they dreamed it to be and at the reception they were sharing their first dance together to "You're Still The One" by Shania Twain. It just worked with everything they had been through. Randy held Kim close to him as they danced. There was a time when dancing didn't seem like something Kim would do. Walking was another thing they didn't think Kim would be able to do. Kim proved everyone wrong and sure enough she was walking, talking and dancing with her new husband. "I think the wedding was amazing," said Randy.
"It was. It was everything I ever dreamed of. I meant it, Randy you are my knight in shining armor. You saved me so many times."
"And you saved me," he said with a smile.
"I did? How?"
"Because I was with the wrong person when I met you and I was on the wrong road but you put me back on the right road and showed me that the right person was out there for me."
"Oh," she said with a smile. "I guess this is my happily ever after."
"It's not over yet. WE have so much more in our lives, Kim. It's not over yet."
"I know but I just feel like this is my happy ending," she said. "Except."
"Except what?" asked Randy.
"I just want to know why you stuck around for so long? And why you never left?"
Randy looked at her with his blue eyes and smiled. "I love you," he said with a smile before he softly kissed her lips, "and besides," he said after he broke the kiss, "It was all for Love."
