"You look beautiful, Bailey." Ian said, as he walked up to fiancée and gave her a loving kiss on the cheek. As the best man, he wore a black tuxedo suit and a midnight blue tie that matched his partner's long, blue evening dress.
"Thanks." Bailey said, with a smile as she returned his kiss. "You don't look so bad yourself either."
"Hey, buddy. You having fun?" He gently took his two-month-old baby boy, Zane from his mother's arms and kissed his forehead. Zane Myers had light brown hair, his mother's dimples, and his father's adorable smile and green eyes. He was such an angel and the couple couldn't be any happier.
"I'll be right back," She said, giving them both a kiss on the cheek. Ian nodded and continued to cradle their beautiful baby boy, as Tony and Griffin walked over to greet their favorite nephew.
Bailey walked up to Rosie and Joey, who were both wearing the same formal attire as the rest of the group. "Bailey, you look great!" Rosie said, tackling her friend in a tight hug. "Your figure is stunning. You wouldn't even be able to tell that you had a baby! I hope I get my figure back that fast when I have a kid."
"Thanks, Rosie." She replied with a good-natured laugh, as a blush crept its way to Joey's face. "Even though you said the same exact thing yesterday, and the day before."
"Yeah I know, but it's true!"
Bailey smiled in response and asked the couple, "Have you guys seen Harper?"
Dani, who was hand-in-hand with her boyfriend Julio, walked up to three and answered her question. "The last time I checked, she was in her dressing room. But let me warn you – she is extremely nervous right now. I tried to calm her down, but nothing I said worked."
"Yeah, same." Rosie added, climbing on her boyfriend's back for a piggyback ride – despite the fact that she was wearing a dress. "Mikey is having the same problem. Joey and the guys went to talk to him, but no one could calm him down."
"Alright, I'll talk to them." Bailey said, as she walked off to find her best friend. "Be right back."
When Bailey finally found her soon-to-be sister-in-law, she couldn't help but smile proudly. Harper was so beautiful in her simple wedding dress, her makeup done lightly, and her blonde hair styled into a bun on the top of her head. She was sitting in front of the mirror, too focused on taking deep breaths to notice anyone walking into the room.
"Hey, Harp." Bailey said, as she made her way through the large room.
Harper turned around when she heard a familiar voice and replied. "Hi, Bailey."
"You look gorgeous." She said as she took a seat next to the nervous bride.
Harper smiled at the compliment and said, "Thank you, and so do you."
She chuckled with a sigh. "Am I that obvious?"
"Very." Bailey said as she good-naturedly agreed with her friend.
"I am slightly nervous," she finally admitted. "I love Michael, but what if marriage isn't for us? What if he grows tired of me? What if we are too young? We could be rushing into things."
Bailey placed a hand on her friend's shoulder for reassurance and smiled. "Michael could never get tired of you, Harper. He loves you and you love him – it's been that way from the very first day you two laid eyes on each other, and that's never going to change. I know you, Harper – you aren't the type of person to rush into things. You accepted his proposal, because you knew that you were ready for this marriage. Having nerves on the day of your wedding is completely normal. Don't stress over it too much. Just know that you have the girls and me. We'll always be here for you, alright?"
"Thanks, Bails." She smiled and seemed to have finally relaxed. "I don't know what I would ever do without you."
Bailey chuckled and said, "Hey, what are sisters-in-law for?"
After two knocks, Bailey walked into her brother's dressing room when she heard a familiar muffled voice yell, "Come in!"
"Hey, what's up?" She asked, taking a seat by the door.
Michael was pacing back-and-forth in his suit, with his tie undone and his dark brown hair in a mess. "What's up?" He repeated, incredulously. "I'm getting married to the girl of my dreams in a few minutes! That's what's up!"
"Very much." He sighed in defeat, and took a seat next to his younger sister.
"So, what's on your mind?"
"I'm scared that she'll get tired of me." He admitted, smoothing down his messy hair with a comb. "What if she decides that she doesn't love me anymore after we get married?"
Bailey laughed and shook her head in amusement, as she fixed his tie. "Harper said the same exact thing about two minutes ago."
"She did?" His eyes lit up as he laughed.
She nodded. "Harper will not grow tired of you once you two are married. If that were the case, it would've happened a long time ago. You two have been dating for how many years now? She loves you and you love her. Trust me, she won't grow tired of you any time soon. Have some faith in her, bro."
He exhaled and seemed to calm down drastically. "You're right. Thanks, little sis."
"Any time." She said, before leaving the dressing room. When she closed the door, she heard her brother cheer himself on.
"YOU'RE AWESOME AND YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED TO AN EVEN AWESOMER GIRL TODAY, MICHAEL KNIGHT! ALRIGHT, LET'S DO THIS!"
I can't believe he's getting married before me, Bailey thought in amusement.
"You may now kiss the bride," the priest said. As Michael and Harper shared their first kiss as a married couple, everyone clapped and cheered – giving the newly wedded pair their blessings. "I now present to you, Mr. and Mrs. Michael Knight."
"They are so perfect for each other," Bailey said, with tears of unexplainable joy running down her cheeks.
"Kind of reminds me of us," Ian chuckled, as kissed his fiancée's cheek. He took her left hand and kissed the engagement ring that fit perfectly on her slender finger. "I can't wait until we get married."
"Me neither." She smiled.
"I love you, Bailey Knight."
"And I love you, Ian Myers." She said as he captured her lips with his in a sweet kiss.
