A/n: Well my friends this is the last chapter on this journey. I can't thank each and every one of you enough who's been on this journey with me and helped to push this story to heights that I never though I see with one of my fan fics. As always, I only own Logan and Julia, everyone else belongs to SM; I just enjoy playing in her world.
On with the last chapter.
I couldn't believe that it was my wedding day. I never thought that I would ever find someone to love after what Edward did to me but then Garrett walked into my life and he made me happier than I've ever been. The wedding planning started as soon as we got home, I knew that I wanted both Charlie and Carlisle to walk me down the aisle; something that they both agreed to, everyone was extremely happy for the both of us.
Alice wanted to plan the whole thing but I squashed that line of thinking right from the get go, there was no way in hell that I was going to let her plan it. It would be too over the top and that wasn't something that I wanted. I knew that Vic was going to be my maid of honor and Char and Rose were going to be my bridesmaids. Garrett picked Jasper to be his best man and Em and Peter to also stand up for him.
I had been hunting for the perfect place to get married when Garrett suggested that we get married in Rome, in front of the Fountain of Love. It was such a perfect idea and I agreed quickly, I don't know how Garrett pulled it off, but we were going to be married at night under the moon, the fountain was going to be light up and there also wouldn't be any humans milling about. Once we had the place picked out, there wasn't much else to plan out. The only things that had to be settled on were the flowers, my dress, the bridesmaid dresses and the guy's suits.
I decided to be carrying a red rose bouquet and Vic, Char and Rose would carry lilies. The guys picked black suits to wear with a white rose in their lapel. My dress was the hardest to chose, everything I saw didn't scream me. We flipped though mags, online and went to many stores but it wasn't till we got to Rome a week ago that I finally found my dress. It was a floor length white dress that had a lace pattern on the bodice and it continued on to the straps. It was a sweetheart cut and there was also lace around the cups at the top of the bodice.
I was in love with it as soon as I saw it, I went into the shop and told the lady that I wanted the dress; it was on a mannequin, she took it down and I tried it on. Of course it fit and there were no alterations that needed to be done. I found a lace veil that had a tiara attached to it, to go with it. I was completely in love and I couldn't wait for Garrett to see it. I picked lavender mermaid style dresses for Vic, Rose and Char to wear as well. Charlie and Carlisle had picked a grey suit to wear for when they walked me down the aisle.
I was pulled out of my musings by Rose shaking my arm.
"You in there honey?" she asked when I turned to look at her.
"I am. I'm just thinking." I replied with a smile.
"What about how many times you'll fuck Garrett once your man and wife?" Char asked with a giggle.
"Must you always be so crude Char darling?" I asked with a giggle of my own.
"Of course, I've been around Peter too long." she replied with a wink.
We all burst out laughing then and when we calmed down, I finished getting dressed. I undid the knot in my silk housecoat and slipped it off my shoulders lying it on the bed. I was already in my bra and panties so I just slipped on my dress, Vic zippered me in and then I went back to my seat so that I could add on my makeup. Vic, Char and Rose finished getting in to their dresses and then they did their makeup as well.
As soon as we were done, there was a knock on the door, Vic went to answer it. It was Charlie and Carlisle telling us that it was time. The girls all came to give me a hug and then they gathered up their bouquets and headed out. I stood up from my chair as Charlie and Carlisle walked in, they looked at me and I had a feeling that if they were human, they would have tears their eyes.
"My baby is all grown up." Charlie said.
"Bella, you look simply amazing." Carlisle said after.
"Thank dads. I wouldn't be here today without either one of you." I replied.
"Here is your something blue kiddo." Charlie said handing me a flat box.
I opened it and inside was my grandma Swan's sapphire necklace.
"Thanks dad." I replied while giving him a hug.
Charlie helped me to put it on and then Carlisle handed me a smaller box. Once I opened it, I saw that it was a beautiful ruby heart ring.
"Carlisle, this is beautiful. Thank you."
"You're welcome my daughter. It was a ring that my father gave to my mother for one of her birthdays."
"Shouldn't it go to Rose or Alice?" I asked not feeling worthy of receiving something like this.
"Each of them has a piece of jewelry that my father gave to my mother. You are just as much my daughter as they are, so it only makes sense that you get something." Carlisle replied.
"I don't know what to say." I said.
"Don't say anything. Just put it on so that we can get this show on the road before Garrett thinks that you are going to leave him at the altar."
I laughed and then took the ring out of the box and slipped it on to my finger. I then hugged Charlie and Carlisle and we walked out of the room, down the hall and towards the double doors that will take us outside. Rose, Char and Vic were all standing in a line in front of the doors when Charlie, Carlisle and I got to the doors. The music started, the doors open with a flourish and the girls started their walk towards the fountain. When the music changed again, I hooked my arms though Charlie and Carlisle's and then we started our walk down the aisle.
The aisle wasn't long and in no time I was standing in front of Garrett, he had a huge smile on his face and the fountain gave him this glow.
"Who give this woman away?" The minister asked.
"We do." Carlisle spoke while Charlie nodded.
Carlisle placed a kiss on my cheek as did Charlie and then Charlie placed my hand in Garrett's. After they had taken their seats, the minister continued,
"We are gather here tonight to witness the joining of this man and this woman. If anyone has any reason as to why these two shouldn't be join, let them speak now or forever hold their peace."
Of course no one said anything, so the minister continued,
"Garrett and Bella have told me that they have some things that they want to say to each other, so Garrett would you like to go first?"
Garrett nodded and said, "Bella, when I first met you I knew right away that you were a remarkable woman and the more time that we spent together, the more that became true. When I found out we were mates, I knew that I couldn't have been happier with anyone else. You are so special to be Bella; you're everything that I've ever wanted in a woman. I can't wait to spend the rest of my forever with you. I love you my Little Lady"
"Garrett, I felt weightlessness that I never felt before when I met you. It was like everything in my life fell into place and the world was finally put to rights. I loved you for a long time and I'll continue to love you forever more. I can't wait to spend the rest of my forever with you. I love you my Rebel Soldier." I knew that if I were human, I would have been crying.
"My I have the rings?" The minister asked once I was done.
Jasper moved passed Garrett and handed the rings to the minister. They were really awesome rings; they were silver and had half a heart on them that ended with a diamond. When the rings were put together they formed the whole heart.
"Thank you. Garrett, I want you to take Bella's ring and repeat after me, I, Garrett Adams, take you, Isabella Swan to be my lawfully wedded wife. To have and to hold from this day forth. Through good times and bad."
Garrett took my ring, placed it on my finger and repeated the vow, "I, Garrett Adams, take you, Isabella Swan to be my lawfully wedded wife. To have and to hold from this day forth. Through good times and bad."
After my ring was on, he kissed the back of my hand and then turned to face the minister.
"Bella, please take Garrett's ring and repeat the same thing, just changed the names."
I took the ring, turned to Garrett and repeated my vows, "I, Isabella Swan, take you, Garrett Adams, to be my lawfully wedded husband. To have and to hold from this day forth. Thought good times and bad."
"Garrett, do you take this woman to be yours forsaking all others?" The minister asked.
"I do." Garrett replied.
"Isabella, do you take this man to be yours forsaking all others?"
"I do." I said with all the love that I could muster.
"Then by the powers vested in me. I now pronounce you man and wife. You may kiss your bride."
Garrett smiled at me and then placed his hand on my cheek and leaned in and kissed me with so much passion. We pulled back when Em started to make catcalls and everyone cheered when we turned to face them. We walked back down the aisle and back into the hotel; we then headed up to our room and waited for the others to join us. Once they did, we had a small party.
The next morning after we finished packing, we said goodbye to everyone and headed towards the airport. Carlisle was lending us Isle Esme for as long as we wanted for the honeymoon. I couldn't wait to not only being alone with my new husband but also exploring the island. I couldn't wait to start my forever with my new last name and with the man that will love me till our dying day.
