Chapter 34

It was a beautiful Seattle July morning. It was our wedding day today, and the clear blue skies and a bright warm sun were a blessing. After months of planning, fitting, arguments, we were finally here.

I was the last one to get her hair and makeup done, while our mothers and bridesmaids were getting dressed. I thought back to our rehearsal dinner last night.

"I would like to raise a glass to my beautiful, Bride." Christian said. "The concept of luck has often been brought up in my life. The success of my business, opportunities, and even being adopted by my family. My success was due to hard work, opportunities due to a strong business mind, and my adoption a blessing, but I never truly felt lucky until you came into my life. You showed me that I was lucky to have all this, and more importantly to have you. Thank you for being the light in my life. I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life loving you."

My eyes brimmed with tears when I looked up to my future husband. Cheers erupted from our small wedding party, and toasted to our future marriage. After a few more speeches from our parents, Kate, and Elliot, we had to head our separate ways.

We were standing outside his parents house, where I was staying with the bridal party. He was heading to our house with the groom's party.

"I still might steal you for the evening." He said, and pushed a lock of my hair behind my naked shoulder. I shivered from his touch.

"It's tradition, Christian."

He leaned in closer, his lips brushing my ear. "I want to fuck my bride through the night, until the sun rises and I get to make her mine forever."

"Tempting." I answered huskily, but we will have to wait.

"Maybe." He chuckled, kissing me on the neck. "Goodnight, Miss Steele."

"Goodnight, Mr. Grey." He smirked dangerously, and I could only imagine what deviant plans he had. It would be hard to resist him until the wedding tomorrow.

"Ana, we should get you in your dress." Mia said, interrupting my memories of last night.

"Yes, right." I said. I looked in the mirror. My updo and soft makeup would complement my wedding dress beautifully.

My mom, Kate, and Mia helped me into my dress, clasping the countless buttons in the back.

"Oh Ana, you look absolutely beautiful." My mom said teary eyed.

Kate nodded, dabbing her face with a tissue.

"Mom, we can't start crying." I said, teary eyed too. "We will ruin our make up."

We chuckled and hugged.

"Breathtaking, darling." Grace said, kissing my cheek before putting my veil on.

I looked in the mirror. My off the shoulder dress hugged my skin perfectly. Kate's mom outdid herself. Grace was right, the details on the dress were truly breathtaking.

"Christian is going to lose it." Mia giggled. "He'll try to steal you away… again"

I laughed.

"Are you ready?" Kate asked, handing me my bouquet.

"I'm ready." I smiled.

Ray walked in, and almost lost his footing.

"Annie… you look beautiful." He hugged me. "I know you've been on your own for a while, and you're getting married, starting your own family, but you will always be the little girl that stole my heart."

I sniffled. "Thank you, Dad. I love you."

He smiled. "Love you, kiddo."

We headed outside where the ceremony was being held, and we took our places.

The bridesmaids started walking down the aisle when the string quartered started playing La Vie en Rose. I took a steadying breath when it was our turn. I noticed Christian as soon as I walked up the aisle. He looked so handsome in his black tuxedo. I was overcome with emotion, and I had to look down before I was a crying mess down the aisle. Ray and Christian exchanged a hug and some words as he gave me away. I took Christian's hand and he smiled at me before we faced the minister. His smile calmed me instantly. I could almost hear him whispering reassurances in my head. The minister went on with his sermon and before I knew we were repeating after him the vows he recited for us.

"I do." Christian said, caressing my hand.

"I do." I said when it was my turn, tears brimming in my eyes.

"I declare you both husband and wife, you may kiss the bride."

Christian and I smiled and laughed, and he wrapped his steady arms around me.

"Forever." He whispered against my lips, and kissed me fervently.

"Forever." I smiled.

We walked down the aisle hand in hand as husband and wife. Our guests were cheering, as we made our way inside. We headed for the makeshift bridal suite to have a moment to ourselves before our first dance.

"Hi Mrs. Grey." He said, smiling once we were inside. He wrapped his arms around mine.

I chuckled, high on the euphoria of the ceremony. "Hi Mr. Grey."

I traced my finger along his chiseled jaw. He breathed out heavily, pulling me closer to him. His mouth lingered along mine. I planted a soft kiss on his soft lips, it was comforting and familiar. Marriage. Every kiss was etched with a bit more hunger. I reach for his pants, brushing my hand over his erection.

He grabbed my hand, and kneeled down instead. "I have other plans for you."

He lifted my dress and ran his hands up my thighs, dipping a finger inside me. "You're fucking drenched." He groaned.

"For you." I moaned and he slipped another finger inside me. I weaved my hands in his hair while he was still kneeling down. "I want you."

He slipped his fingers out and stood up. "Lay down on the chaise." He commanded, and I did.

He lifted my heavy lace dress, eying my white garters hungirly. He fisted my underwear in his hand and ripped them off. I moaned from the delicious bite of the fabric. He unzipped his pants, pulling his hard rock cock out.

"This will only be a taste of this evening, Mrs. Grey." He said, before slamming into me.

"Christian!" I cried out as he wrecked me mercilessly.

"Say my name, baby." He said, in between thrusts. "It's the last name you'll ever cry out for the rest of your life."

His possessiveness and maddening trusts were driving me to the edge. He slipped a hand between us to pinch my clit hard. "Come for me, Anastasia."

I cried out as my body responded to his command, finding my release. He pumped a few more times before coming inside me. He collapsed on top of me while we both caught our breath.

"I can't wait when we have the whole night to ourselves." I whispered.

Christian chuckled. "Me too, baby." He said, before helping us stand up.

We had to clean ourselves and straighten up before heading back out to the party.

The band announced our first dance, and the lovely singer's voice filled the room with his rendition of Etta James' "At Last".

Christian held me gently while we swayed on the dance floor, and eventually the song bleed into another and others started joining us. We danced, ate, and drank the day away with our guests. It was a true celebration of love. I was eager for tonight, but even more so for the rest of my days and nights with the love of my life by my side.

AN: It only took me YEARS to finally post this draft I've had on my documents for a long time. I am so sorry for everyone that waited for me to finish this story. Life has been beyond hectic. I started working a "big girl" job, got married, my husband got relocated a couple times due to his job, so I've been quite busy! I hope you guys enjoy this chapter. I am planning one more final chapter to upload probably next week :).
