Chapter 32

The next morning came and Andi and Elise were up and decided to order room service because Andi did not want to take a chance and see Kris until it was time. The food arrived and the girls enjoyed strawberries on waffles and orange juice.

Andi's cell phone went off and she looked to see who was calling her and surprise it was her soon to be husband.

"Good morning Kris. How are you?" Andi answered.
"I am great because I am supposed to be getting married to the perfect woman whom I love completely. How are you?" Kris asked.
"I am excited and have butterflies in my stomach because there is this awesome guy that I am supposed to be marrying in a little while" Andi said happily.
"Really some awesome guy, eh" Kris joked.
"Yeah he is awesome, cute and wonderful. Of course I love him with all my heart" Andi said dreamily and smiled to herself.
"What can I say I am Mr. Perfect" Kris bragged.
"Excuse me, did you think I was talking about you, Kris? Actually I was talking about Sidney Crosby, you know your teammate. He is my dream man" Andi said sarcastically.
"I don't think so because for one thing Sidney is in Pittsburgh and I would fight his ass for your honor and love" Kris said seriously.
"Kris you know I love you and so enjoying joking with you and can't wait to see you when I walk down the aisle. Now I hope that you are leaving the hotel because I have to leave soon to get ready. Are you guys leaving soon?" Andi asked.
"Yeah we checked out about a half an hour ago and are at your parents house getting ready" Kris explained.
"Ok cool well then Elise and I are going to leave soon then to and head to my aunt's place to get ready too. I love you and will see you soon" Andi said as she started getting her bags situated.
"I love you too and will see you very soon sweetheart. Oh and Luc was good for your parents and he loves you too" Kris said as he looked at Luc who was on the floor playing with a stuffed bear.
"Tell my beautiful baby boy, that mommy loves him too and give him a kiss from me too and thank my parents a million times too. OK I gotta go, love you" Andi said.
"Love you too Andi" Kris said and then they both hung up.

An hour later Andi and Elise were at their aunt's house getting ready for the wedding. Andi was getting her hair and makeup done. Finally after a couple more hours it was time for the wedding to begin.

The photographer was getting all sorts of pictures of Andi while she was getting ready and the photographer's assistant was with the guys.


Everyone was sitting in the backyard of Andi's aunt's house where the wedding was going to happen. The day was perfect with an amazingly sunny late afternoon in late March.

Finally Kris and his friends came out from the side of the house and headed to where the minister was standing. They all looked gorgeous in their tuxes. Andi's mom was holding Luc who looked so cute in his little baby tux. Kris looked over at Luc, who was cooing and babbling, and Kris just laughed at his son and then the music started as the bridesmaids started walking down the aisle. Kris looked up and started getting nervous but a good nervous because Andi would be his wife soon.

All the bridesmaids were down the aisle and then the music changed and then out walked Andi and her dad and Kris could not believe how beautiful she looked. Kris had a huge smile on his face and Andi looked at Kris and she could not believe how handsome he looked. She had major butterflies and tried not to cry but she could not but get seriously emotional because this was the perfect day ever!

As Andi walked past her mom and her son, she smiled at Luc and he babbled and tired to reach for her and Andi blew a kiss to Luc. Andi's dad gave her hand to Kris and Kris took her hand.

"Kris you take good care of my little girl" Mr. Walker said.
"I will sir" Kris said and smiled.

The minister started the ceremony and thanked everyone for coming for this special day for Andi and Kris.

"We are gathered here today to join Andrea Walker and Kristopher Letang in holy matrimony. Together, we can accomplish anything. Together, we will be better than we could be alone. Together, we will share our love with the world. Together, our love will grow into a bond too strong to break."

"Kristopher will you take Andrea to be your lawfully wedded wife. Through sickness and health and highs and lows of life?"
"I do" Kris said smiling.
"Andrea will you take Kristopher to be your lawfully wedded husband. Through sickness and health and highs and lows of life?"
"I do" Andi said smiling brightly.

"Can I have the rings please?" the minister asked and then he blessed the rings.

"Circles have no beginning and has no end, and so in the long and sacred tradition of marriage rings have come to symbolize eternal love and endless union of body, of mind, and of the spirit. They have been given by lovers to each other as tokens of faith, trust, and hope as well as a tangible sign of a promise given and kept through the days of their lives together."

"At this time Andi and Kris wish to say their vows that they wrote personally" the minister said.

"Andi, You mean the world to me and I am the luckiest guy in the world to have you in my life. You are a strong, amazing, wonderful mother and woman. We have had our ups and downs but we make each other better all the time. I love you and can't wait to live the rest of my life with you and all the adventures we will share. I love you Andrea forever" Kris said as tears filled up his eyes.

"Kris, You are my heart and soul. I love you with all my heart. I am so happy that I am going to be your wife and teammate in life. We are definitely each others 'puzzle pieces' to quote you from our date at the William Penn Hotel. You are a great dad to our son and that makes me very happy. I can not wait to figure out all the adventures we will have as a family. I love you Kristopher always" Andi said through her tears.

"By the power vested in me by the state of Michigan, I now pronounce you husband and wife. Kristopher you may kiss your beautiful bride" the minister said.

Kris looked at Andi and lifted her veil and pulled her close and kissed her like there was no tomorrow. After the kiss there were lots of hoots and hollers and the happy couple turned to see all their family and friends smiling at them.

Andi and Kris walked down the aisle and then Andi looked at Kris and they gave each other the look and then ran towards the dock and ran off the walkway and jumped straight into the lake with a hug splash.

Everyone was surprised but loved how Andi and Kris ended the ceremony but it was what Andi wanted and Kris had agreed. Andi and Kris finally got out of the lake and greeted everybody.

The reception was lots of fun and the food was great. Everybody had a great time dancing, talking, eating and just enjoying the wedding. Andi and Kris had lots of fun.

At one point Kris, Andi and Luc were having a quiet family moment on the dock.

"Andi we did it!" Kris exclaimed as he smiled at Andi.
"Yes we did and now I am Mrs. Letang and its awesome" Andi said happily.
Kris was holding Luc in his lap, "Hey buddy, mom and I are finally married. Isn't that great".
Luc just babbled and Andi and Kris just laughed.
"Kris I love you so much and this has been the best day ever" Andi exclaimed smiling at Kris.
"I love you too Andi and everything is perfect" Kris said and then leaned down and kissed Andi deeply.

Finally it was time for Andi and Kris to head off for their honeymoon. Andi's parents were taking care of Luc for them so they could have a week off to be newlyweds.

Andi and Kris were sent off on their honeymoon adventure after hugging everyone goodbye.
