Thank you Ariane DeVere aka Callie Sullivan on livejournal for the transcripts. They help so much.

Here is the wedding!

I own nothing, except Calliah and my ideas.

If you want to see Calliah’s outfit:

If you want to see Molly’s outfit:

I hope this lives up to everyone’s expectations.  

I was sitting in front of a mirror. I was staring at myself in the mirror. “You nervous?” I hear behind me. I look back and see Molly.

I smile softly. “A little. Is that bad?”

“No. I heard that if you aren’t nervous, then that is when you have to worry.” She says and wraps her arms around my shoulders. She rests her head on my shoulder and looks at me in the mirror. “You love him. He loves you. This is something you both want.”

“Too many people out there.” I say and close my eyes.

“There is not too many people. I mean it is only eight of us and then you and Mycroft.” Molly says.

“Too many.” I say.

She sighs and turns my seat around and looks me in the eyes. “You will be fine. You will get ready, put on that dress, get your flowers and get married. Once you see Mycroft, you won’t notice anyone else.” Molly says.

“How do you know?” I ask.

“I’m a romantic. I watch a lot of movies.” She says and shrugs. I look at her in her mint green bridesmaid dress. It was lace on the top and flowed to her knees. She had her hair in a low side pony and a white flats. I laugh and nod. “Okay, time to get ready. You can’t be late.” I nod and sit down in my chair. A hair stylist comes in and starts doing my hair. I smile at Molly and she smiles back. After the hair stylist gets done, I look at my hair. She had curled my hair and twisted it into a beautiful bun. I even had a simple tiara on top. I grin. “Oh Calliah, it looks amazing!”

“Thanks.” I say and start doing my make-up. I did it light, since I hated make-up. I put on my silver hoops, a diamond heart pendant, and my diamond drop earrings. “Time for the dress.” I say softly and Molly grins. I go over and she slips on my dress. It was a sweetheart lining and flowed down to the ground. It had a belt around my waist and a small flower to the side. There was two layers of sheer fabric over the skirt and it laced up in the back. I felt like a princess. I slip on my silver heels and turn to Molly. She tears up and I grin. “Oh Mol.”

She comes over and hugs me. “I’m just so happy for you. Mycroft and you are a perfect couple. You two were made for each other.”

I chuckle as I hug back. “We aren’t perfect but we are one of the best.” I say. Molly hands me my flowers, which had white roses and mint green flowers. Molly grabs her flowers and looks at me.

“Ready?” She asks. I nod and grin. She nods and goes to get ready. I look in the mirror and grin. I take a deep breath and go to my place. I wait till I hear the wedding march and I go out into the room. We rented a small room and a banquet hall. I look around and see Mrs. Hudson with Mummy and daddy Holmes. I look over and see Sherlock with John and Mary and Greg by them. I look up at the front and see Molly. She smiles at me and I smile back. I finally look at Mycroft and as Molly said, forgot about everyone else. He looked amazing. He was in a traditional suit but it was him. I couldn’t see him in anything but that. He grins when he sees me looking at him. I feel butterflies and start to giggle. I get to him and hand my flowers to Molly and turn to Mycroft.

“Hello.” Mycroft says softly.

I grin. “Hello.” I say softly. He takes my hands in his.

“We are gathered here today to celebrate one of life's greatest moments, the joining of two hearts and to give recognition to the worth and beauty of love, and to add our best wishes to the words which shall unite this couple in marriage. Should there be anyone who has cause why this couple should not be united in marriage, Shush!!” The preacher says. We all laugh. “Today we have come together to witness the joining of these two lives. For them, out of the routine of ordinary life, the extraordinary has happened. They met each other, fell in love and are finalizing it with their wedding.” He continues. I look at Mycroft and grin. He smiles back. “A good marriage must be created. It is never being too old to hold hands. It’s remembering to say I love you every day and it is not just marrying the right person its being the right partner.” He says. “Now I know Mycroft and Calliah have written their own vows, so Mycroft.”

I look at Mycroft and smile. “So I’m not the best with talking, but with you I never have a problem. You were the shining light in this bland world filled with goldfish.” Mycroft starts to say. I giggle and hear Sherlock laugh. “When I helped you get off the streets, I didn’t know I was letting you into my heart. I never thought I would get married, I even told mummy that no one deserves to put up with me. I still believe this, but I won’t argue you when you say that you do.” I start tearing up. “I actually looked up romantic vows so I could say something that you would remember for the rest of your life, but they all were bland. So I just want to say that I will cherish you and make you feel like you are the most amazing woman in the world. You are and always will be my Ardaigh.” Mycroft finishes. I hear some sniffles in the crowd and I grin as I dry my tears.

“Okay Calliah.” The preacher says.

“Well, I hope I can top that.” I say and giggle. “Mycroft Holmes. I never thought I would ever get married either, I always believed that I wasn’t worthy of anyone. You changed my whole life and turned it on its side. I believed that I was ugly, stupid, and a hindrance to everyone. Well, you changed my mind on the ugly and hindrance part. I still feel stupid compared to you and Sherlock.” Mycroft rolls his eyes. “Just kidding, everyone knows I’m the smart one.” I hear laughing from Mummy Holmes and Molly.” I look at Mycroft in the eyes. “They day I met you, I thought you were some stuck up government worker who was putting his nose somewhere it doesn’t belong, but you didn’t just save me from the street, you saved my life and continue to do every day. You are and will always be my Croft.”

“Time for the vows. Mycroft. Do you take Calliah to be your wife?” The preacher asks.

“I do.” Mycroft says and winks at me.

“Do you promise to love, honor, cherish and protect her, forsaking others and holding only unto her?” The preacher asks.

“I do.” Mycroft says and I grin.

“Calliah, do you take Mycroft to be your husband?” The preacher asks and looks at me.

“I do.” I say.

“Do you promise to love, honor, cherish and protect her, forsaking others and holding only unto her?” The preacher asks.

“I do.” I say.

“Wedding rings are an unbroken circle of love, signifying to all union of this couple in marriage. Can we have the rings?” The preacher asks. Mycroft looks at Sherlock. Sherlock brings them over and then retreats back. “Mycroft, repeat after me and place the ring on Calliah’s finger. Calliah, This ring is my sacred gift…”

“Calliah, this ring is my sacred gift…” Mycroft repeats.

“….with my promise that I will always love you…” The preacher continues.

“…with my promise that I will always love you….” Mycroft repeats.

“…cherish you and honor you all the days of my life…” The preacher continues.

“…cherish you and honor you all the days of my life…” Mycroft repeats.

“…and with this ring, I thee wed.” The preacher finishes.

“…and with this ring, I thee wed.” Mycroft says and places the ring on my finger.

“Okay Calliah, repeat after me and place the ring on Mycroft’s finger. Mycroft, This ring is my sacred gift…” The preacher starts.

“Mycroft, this ring is my sacred gift…” I repeats.

“….with my promise that I will always love you…” The preacher continues.

“…with my promise that I will always love you….” I repeats.

“…cherish you and honor you all the days of my life…” The preacher continues.

“…cherish you and honor you all the days of my life…” I repeats.

“…and with this ring, I thee wed.” The preacher finishes.

“…and with this ring, I thee wed.” I says and places the ring on Mycroft’s finger.

“By the power vested in me I now pronounce you Mr. and Mrs. Holmes. You may kiss your bride.” The preacher says. Mycroft pulls me into his arms and kisses me. I kiss back and wrap my arms around him. “I present to you our happy couple.” Everyone claps and I giggle.

Later we are in the banquet hall. It was a small room and has one table and a dance floor. We didn’t want anything big. I don’t like crowds and Mycroft is a personal person. We were all sitting and eating. Mycroft and I were at the end on the table, Molly on the side by me. Greg was by her and then Mummy and Daddy Holmes. On the other side, Sherlock was sitting closest to Mycroft. John was next to Sherlock, then Mary and then Mrs. Hudson. It was a small get together and I wouldn’t want it any way else. We finish dinner and then Sherlock stands up.

“If I could get your attention. Since Mycroft didn’t have a best man, I will fill in.” Sherlock says. I hear Mycroft groan next to me. I place my hand on his and grin. “When I found out that Calliah and Mycroft were dating, my first thought was ‘Was Calliah smart enough to keep Mycroft entertained?’ and then my next thought was ‘Why did Calliah want to be with Mycroft, he is a bore’.” Sherlock says. I roll my eyes and kiss Mycroft’s cheek. “Well I thought about those questions and the answers came to me last night. Of course Calliah was smart enough. Like she said she is the smart one. In a sense. Calliah experiences things with emotion and thinks about people’s feelings. She took my brother and made him care about something other than the British Government. I think I speak for all of us and saw, thank you Calliah.” Sherlock says.

I get up and go over and hug Sherlock. “Thank you Sherlock.” I say softly. He hugs back. He sits down as I go back to my seat. Molly stands up and smiles softly.

“So, I’ve known Calliah for a while. We went to school together and then got our jobs together. I knew her before she met Mycroft and I can tell you that Mycroft has saved Calliah. She has become an amazing woman with Mycroft’s help and has become confidence and has come out of her shell. She is the sister I never had, the best friend I always wanted, and the woman I admire most. I love you Calliah and Mycroft you had better treat her right because I know how to dice people up.” She says and I chuckle.

“Don’t try to be funny Molly.” Sherlock says.

“It was funny.” I tell him as Molly sits down.

“Only to you two.” Sherlock says.

“That’s all that matters.” I say and stick my tongue out.

“All right kids.” John says and rolls his eyes.

“Not even brother and sister an hour and you are already bickering.” Mummy Holmes says.

“This is how they act all the time.” John informs her.

“Oh whatever.” I say and roll my eyes.

“To the happy couple.” Mrs. Hudson says and raises her glass.

“To the happy couple.” They all reply and raise their glasses. Mycroft and I raise ours and kiss softly. I giggle.

“Sherlock, is it time for our first dance?” I ask.

He nods and gets up and goes to the side and gets out his violin and gets set up. Mycroft stands up and holds out his hand. I slip my shoes back on and grab his hand. He helps me up and leads me to the dance floor. Sherlock starts playing his violin and Mycroft and I start dancing. I lean my head on Mycroft’s chest and he holds me. I grin and feel a kiss on my head. We finish the dance and everyone claps. We smile and Molly puts on some music. Mycroft and I sit down and everyone else gets up and dances. Mrs. Hudson was doing some type of dance by herself, Mummy and Daddy Holmes dancing and being cute, John and Mary were dancing and laughing, and Molly got Sherlock to dance with her, even though I knew he wouldn’t protest much. I lean back into Mycroft and he wraps his arms around me. “Mrs. Holmes.” I say softly and giggle.

That night we got to our hotel room, the penthouse, and we ‘danced’ a little and enjoyed a nice night in. We went to New York City for the honeymoon and saw some plays, which Mycroft was starting to like, we shopped, and just acted like newlyweds.
