"Nicole, this dress has to fit!" I yelled, tears running down my face. "Don't cry, don't smudge your makeup. It will fit." She said, trying to zipper my dress. "Okay, it's not going to fit." She said. I screamed. "No, no, don't cry. Please don't." Brook said. I shook my head. "It's supposed to fit! I can't have a wedding without the dress!" I yelled. "Sh, sh. We will make it fit." Nicole said.
"Suck it in." Annelyy said. I put my hands on my stomach, and sucked in my stomach. "Got it!" Nicole yelled. I sighed in relief, and let my stomach go. "I'm so fat." I groaned. "Ash, you had two kids. You still have baby fat. Bryant is only two months." Annelyy said. I nodded, and wiped my tears.
"You're sweating, why are you so nervous?" Michael asked. "If you're getting married, you would understand." I replied. He nodded. "If you were in my position with Brook, you would probably pass out." I said. He nodded. "I understand." He said. I nodded, and fixed my tie.
"Do you smell that?" Luke asked. Everyone sniffed the room, and covered their nose. "Bry." I sighed. I picked him up. "Wow! That's a strong smell." I said. "I got it." Ashley's dad said. "Thank you." I said. He nodded, and took him into the bathroom.
"Are you ready?" Brook asked, pushing my hair up in a bun. I nodded, and smiled. "I'm gonna cry." I said. "Well, when you get out there, you are more than welcome to cry." She said. I smiled, and laughed. "Now, lets get everyone lined up." She said. I nodded.
"Livvy, Nicole, Luke. Brook, Michael. Kyla, Calum. Lauren, Harry. Rachel, Bryant." Annelyy said. I nodded. "And of course me and Matt." I said. "And Caroline with you two." I said. She nodded. "And Nicole and Jackie are flower girls." I said. Everyone nodded. "Ashton never seen the dress." I said. Livvy smiled.
The music started playing, and everyone stood. I looked to the doorway, and I couldn't help the smile on my face, as all Ashley's friends, and my friends walked down the aisle. They were all smiling brightly, telling me they are happy. And I couldn't be happier.
Nicole and Jackie walked down the aisle, and threw flowers. Nicole had a big smile on her face, as she looked at Jackie. Jackie, on the other hand, was staring at me, with a small smile. She is so much like Ashley, it's scary.
The doors opened, and Ashley and Mr. Green walked down the aisle. My jaw dropped, once I saw her dress. It was amazing. She looked amazing. Everything about her looked amazing. She had a big smile on her face, and a big smile on her dad's face as well.
"We are gathered here today to celebrate the marriage of Ashley and Ashton." The priest said. "What a lovely day for a wedding, the sun is shining, everything is perfect." He said. I just kept smiling at Ashley. I couldn't take my eyes off of her. It's like the first time I met her. I couldn't stop looking at her. She's so beautiful, it's crazy.
"Now for the vows." The priest said. He nodded at me, and I smiled, and pulled out my paper. "Ashley, the first day I met you, I knew I would love you for the rest of my life. I couldn't keep my eyes off of you, because of how beautiful you were. Are. I remember when I first met you, and you didn't know any of us. And you hated us. And you didn't know any of our songs. And now, you are apart of our family. You love us, hopefully. And you sing along to the songs, and to the songs I write for you. I am so happy to have this life with you, and our beautiful kids, and our family. And I love you." I said. Ashley's tears were falling, and she smiled.
"Ashton, the day I... first met you, I hated you." She said. Everyone laughed, and she sniffled. "I was afraid to get hurt like I did before. I was the geek, and the quiet girl. And you changed that. You took away the fear, and you took away my nerd and now, I can't stop talking. You showed me things in life, that I would never see. You were there when my dad kicked me out, and then took care of me and Jackie." She said, sniffling. "I remember when Jackie first called you her dad, and I cried. I cried all day, up until the time I called you. You showed me love, and you showed me trust. And I couldn't be happier. Thank you for all of these wonderful years, and thank you for letting me into your family. And thank you for giving me amazing children." She said. I smiled.
The priest smiled, and nodded at us. "Rings." He said. Michael came over with the rings, and smiled. "I would like to call up the made-of-honor, and the best man." He said. Annelyy and Michael came walking up, and smiled. "Are you two a couple?" He asked. Michael and Annelyy both made a face. "Gross." Annelyy said. Everyone laughed.
The priest nodded at me. "Repeat after me." He said. I, Ashton Irwin, take you, Ashley Green, to be my lawfully wedded wife, my constant friend, my faithful partner and my love from this day forward. In the presence of God, our family and friends, I offer you my solemn vow to be your faithful partner in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, and in joy as well as in sorrow. I promise to love you unconditionally, to support you in your goals, to honor and respect you, to laugh with you and cry with you, and to cherish you for as long as we both shall live." I smiled.

Ashley sniffled.
"I now pronounce you husband and wife. Ashton, you may kiss your bride." He said. I smiled, and stepped forward, and kissed Ashley hard. She smiled, and I dipped her over. Everyone cheered, and laughed. "I love you." She smiled. "I love you too." I smiled back. We intertwined our hands, and walked out of the church.
"Everyone give it up for the new couple of the night, Mr. and Mrs. Ashton Irwin!" The DJ yelled. I smiled, and walked out with Ashton. Everyone clapped. "Now for the first dance for the new couple." The DJ said. I smiled, and stood in the middle of the dance floor.
The Only Reason started playing, and I smiled. "Remember this song?" Ashton whispered. "You sang it to me when I found you cheated on me." I whispered back. He smiled, and nodded. "What a great wedding song." I whispered. He laughed, and nodded.
"Now for the maid-of-honor's speech." The DJ said. I smiled, as Annelyy walked to the center of the dance floor. "Hi, I'm Annelyy Thomas, Ashley's best friend. I remember when Ashley and I were twelve, and we wrote down what we wanted our weddings to look like. And she always said she wanted a big wedding, with people, and flowers, and California bikinis." She said. I looked down in embarrassment. "But, she never mentioned she would date a freaking drummer!" She yelled. Everyone laughed, and I shook my head. "Just like the time she found condoms in her dad's drawer, and she-" I ran up and grabbed the microphone. "Alright." I said. She laughed.
"Hi, I'm Michael Clifford, Ashton's bestest friend. I remember when Ashton made a bro code with us, saying he will never date a girl." He said. Ashton rolled his eyes. "Obviously, that code stopped." He said. Everyone laughed. "But Ashton, here's to getting drunk, having sex, well, more sex, making more babies, and GETTING DRUNK!" He yelled. I rolled my eyes, and looked at Ashton, who was smiling.
"Henry! Come dance!" I yelled, too drunk to even know what was going on. He smiled, and got up. "Caroline, this is... Henry! Dance!" I yelled. He nodded, and danced with Caroline. "Momma." Nicole said, walking to me. I picked her up. She wiped her eyes, and I smiled. "Is my baby girl tired." I said. "Dad, can you put her, actually, Jackie, and Nicole to bed?" I asked. He nodded.
"Today was amazing." I said. Ashton smiled, and nodded. "We are married babe. Actually married." I said. He smiled. "I can't believe it." He said. I nodded, and kissed him. "I love you so much." He said. "And I love you." I replied.
