The ceremony had gone flawlessly, with you only shedding a few tears when you turned and saw Shawn standing next to the officiator. You exchanged vows, kissed, and hugged your bridesmaids for the first time as Mrs. Mendes.
Now, the reception. You and Shawn were sitting in the back of the country car you two had decided on renting. “Shawn, what if the DJ isn’t there, or if-”
“Love, calm down, everything will be fine.” Shawn smiled, rubbing his thumb across your hand. “Aaliyah’s been texting me, said the DJ was already getting set up. Nothing ot worry about.” He smiled, opening the door when the car pulled up next to the curb.
You nodded and followed your husband. “I’m really happy we got married.”
“Yeah?” Shawn asked, taking your hand.
“Probably one of the best decisions I’ve made.”
“One of the best? What are some others?” Shawn asked, looking at his watch.
You hugged him. “Saying yes when you asked me out on that date in freshman year.” You giggled, kissing him. “Get ready for lots of kissing tonight.” You joked, taking a deep breath as Shawn opened the door to the recepion hall for you.
There was an immediate applause and cheer as you two walked into the recpetion, and you smiled, waving at your best friends and family. “Congrats!” The DJ yelled into the microphone, turning down the music. “I do believe it’s time for the first dance!”
You and Shawn took the dance floor, and you two smiled at each other as Ed Sheeran’s Kiss Me began playing from the speakers. You and your husband danced, eyes locked with each other’s. You glanced over at your mother, and saw her in tears, holding your father’s hand tightly. You sent her a smile as Shawn softly sang the chorus of the song in your ear.
At the end of the song, you two blushed as the crowd cheered, filling up the dance floor. You two had your rounds to all of the guests still at the tables, thanking them. You ran over to your friends, all of them gushing about how cute you two were. “Aw! I’m totally sending you all of the photos and videos I take to you!” Your maid of honor told you, taking a sip of the cocktail she got earlier.
“Yes!” You nodded, laughing when you saw Shawn talking to some of his friends, shaking his head when they said something particularly embarrassing.
You continued onto the table with both your and Shawn’s parents and sister, hugging your mother. “Oh, I’m so proud of you! My baby girl is married! Oh! Soon you’re gonna be making babies of your own!” Your mother dabbed her eyes with a tissue, for the sake of not ruining her makeup.
Blushing, you snorted, rolling your eyes. “Mom!”
“What’re we walking about?” Shawn asked, wrapping his hands around you.
“Nothing! Nothing!” You stopped the conversation, and looked at Aaliyah, who was looking out the window. “What’re you looking at, Liyah?”
She shrugged. “Was looking at my reflection. I really like this dress.” She smiled, smoothing the material of the bridesmaid dress she had on. “Thanks for picking me to be a bridesmaid, it was really fun!”
“Aw, you’re welcome!” You smiled, hugging her quickly as Shawn pulled you towards the table set up front and center in front of the dance floor.
You two sat down as Brian, who Shawn picked as his best man, took the mic from the DJ. “Hey.” He nodded, waving to he two of you. “So you guys are married, and not gonna lie, I honestly have no idea what to say. I forgot he speech at my house.” You laughed, tilting your head when Shawn excused himself. “But I mean, think Shawn’s got a little somthin’ up his sleeve for the bride.”
He smiled, handing the mic to Shawn, who nodded. “Yeah.” He grabbed the acoustic guitar from Brain, and looked at you. “Hi, darling.” He adjusted the guitar on his lap. “So, I- I love you a lot.” He began strumming the guitar, and you almost immediately recognized the song as Photograph, one of your favorites.
A small slideshow began playing behind Shawn, showcasing photos throughout your and Shawn’s relationship. You felt your eyes water, and your hands flew to your mouth as Shawn began singing. You didn’t notice Aaliyah and your maid of honor filming, as well as Andrew taking some photos from the table he was sitting at.
By the time the song ended, you were properly crying. Shawn set the guitar on the ground, and you met him halfway, giving him a bone-crushing hug. “I love you so much, Shawn.”
“I love you, too.” He kissed you once more, spinning you around.
