A/N: For all of you who guessed the last fic was wedding, you were right! I've wanted to write a wedding fic for a while, but I was.. well... I was scared that I wouldn't do it right... hehe... *awkwardly scratches head in awkwardness*

Giselle Pink: Thanks! I do try to be cute!

WolfishMoon: You laughed? I actually made someone laugh? O.O That is a first for me :D THANK YOU T.T

boneer: I had to do a double take to see what I wrote to make me your hero. Then I saw what it was. Thank you *takes off top hat and bows*
