She looked in the mirror, searching for the perfect place until the white flowers tucked neatly into the braid in her hair, loose curls laying softly on her shoulder. It was almost time to see him, and she couldn’t help but smile at the thought. Yes, her family and closest friends had traveled to be with her, and the sun was shining down gloriously from the blue sky above. She smiled at those things, too. But mostly she smiled at the thought that, in only a few short hours, the man she loved with all her heart would take her hand in his, promising to be true to her for the rest of their lives. And that is certainly something to smile about.
He looked down at his jacket, then at his shoes, and back at his jacket again, smoothing his coat and making sure that everything was straight, that all the buttons were buttoned.

But mostly he smiled at the the thought that, in just a few short moments, the women he loved with his entire being would be standing there in front of him and take his hand in hers, vowing to love him until her very last breath. And yes. That is certainly something to smile about.
