Giving her arms a gentle tug, I bent down and pressed another soft kiss to her lips. “I love you,” I whispered.
“I love you, Edward,” she whispered back.
We walked hand in hand out to the backyard where Alice had not only done an impeccable job decorating, but also arranging the timing of it all. It was twilight. And as I’d told Bella on the night of her prom, it was the safest time of day for the vampires in attendance. But with lights placed strategically around the area, it created a magical scene for both human and vampire. Alice had truly outdone herself.
For the first time since seeing Bella walk down the staircase, I let the voices filter back in. They were no longer the din in the background.
Everyone gave us their attention, some of them applauding again, as we walked out and made our way over to the table Alice had set up with special place settings for the bride and groom. Carlisle and Alice also had places at the table even though the only one who would be eating was Bella.
There was a buffet set up with food about ten feet away from our table. The way it was arranged would make it so that everyone would have to pass by ours on their way to the buffet.
People were mingled about the area talking. The humans stuck close together and on the opposite side of the area than that of the vampires. I noticed Jasper moving along the edges with a rather expensive looking camera taking pictures. My sister had thought of everything.
