Ari was quite thrilled when he returned her affectionate gesture, since his small little action calmed her nerves. It only signified that they made each other stronger in tougher times, and that they could even calm each other's nerves.
Ah, the famous starting words. In movies it seemed to go quickly, but it seemed that it was a different story now that it was their wedding.
She almost began tapping her foot in slight impatience as the ceremony began, but a bight smile appeared on her face when it was her time to say, "I do", she recited it with an enthusiastic response. There was no hesitation with her words, and she only seemed to offer Daniel an even bigger grin at that time. After that she was happy to hear and see Daniel's response to his part of the vows, and she couldn't help but quietly laugh at his enthusiastic response.
It did her heart wonders to hear his heartfelt response, and to just see the happiness in his own eyes. Ari knew that their past struggles had only strengthened their bond together, and nothing that life threw at them in the future would ever make them feel any less for each other. Today was the real showing of that.
Plus, it showed the people out there that doubted their relationship that they WOULD make it. No matter what.
It wasn't that the doubt bugged her, but she just grinned at it.
Making them actually see their success and happiness was the best kind of thing she could have asked for, and she knew she'd never ask for anything else.
Finally, Mr. Hutchison uttered the words that they were man and wife, and she leaned into Daniel's kiss as her arms gently wrapped around his neck. Ah, it was nice to finally be married, and to be called Mrs. Daniel Kingsly. It was a sentimental thing to take her new husband's name, and she wondered if he was just as giddy to call her his new wife. Once the two parted she laughed happily as they walked down the aisle with joint hands, and she strained to hear him as he spoke.
"That we did love, that we did!"
The real part of the wedding started when the reception began. The guests then were allowed to be showered in alcohol, and even little finger food to feed their hunger for the time being. It may not have been the fanciest thing in the world, but it suited both Ari and Daniel. Plus, it gave them more of an opportunity to personally thank each person that was able to make it, and it gave their friends a time to relax after all the time and effort they put into helping with the planning. But, it was nice to escape for a little while, and she gladly followed Daniel out to get some fresh air. Once he sat down she decided to take a seat beside him before replying:
"You're right. I just didn't want to dirty the dress at all, but since the ceremony is over, who cares right?" As she spoke she decided to take his advice before hiking up the bottom portion of her dress so she could unclasp the strap that kept her feet securely in place.
