I had a dream so big and loud
I jumped so high I touched the clouds

James Potter looked closely at the red headed witch across from him. He grinned at her as she raised one eyebrow at him. She was the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. He had only had eyes for her since he had first seen her on the Hogwarts Express so many years ago. Of course, his way of showing it was to be a complete arse.

But then, he matured. And she had noticed and had seen him in a different light. James laughed to himself as he realized how lucky he was to have changed from his childish ways.

Lily Evans surveyed the man with untidy black hair. Even on his wedding day, he had either been unable or unwilling to fix it. She couldn’t help but to smile fondly at him. As much as she acted as if she did not approve of his often childish mannerisms, she actually found them rather endearing. She did, however, appreciate the mature man he had turned into.

She shook her head as she thought of the complete arse he had been. And to think, he had somehow ensnared her.

I stretched my hands out to the sky
We danced with monsters through the night

Harry Potter’s eyes drank in the red headed witch smiling at him. She was so beautiful. To be honest, he couldn’t believe that he was finally marrying her. After the hell of the war and the following troubling times, they were lucky to be alive. He never took a day they were together for granted and cherished every moment they spent together, knowing how fragile life could be and how cruel fate could be.

The woman he was marrying was the woman who had saved him. She was what kept him going through that year and who had been able to pull him out of his melancholy after the war.

Ginevra Weasley smiled as she noticed his eyes drink her in. He loved her completely and unconditionally. She felt very much the same. They were perfect together, in her opinion. After the last battle, when they had both suffered from nightmares for months, the only thing that had kept them sane was each other. They helped each other recover from the loss.

Finally, she was marrying the man she had loved for so long. After so much heartbreak in their lives, it was nice to be able to share something with someone for a lifetime.

I'm never gonna look back, Whoa-Oh
Never gonna give it up, No-Oh
Please don't wake me now

Ronald Weasley’s ears were very red. Whether it was nerves or excitement, he couldn’t tell. Most likely both. What had he gotten himself into. He wasn’t ready for it. He was the boy with the emotional range of a teaspoon, as his bride had put it.

But then, he thought back to all the moments he had had with the woman with the bushy brown hair that smiling at him. The terror when he learned of her attack in the second year, the pride when she had helped save Sirius, the missed moment at the Yule Ball, the thrill of fighting by her side in the Ministry, and of course, their first kiss during the last battle. His ears returned to their normal color. There were no doubts. He was going to finally marry this woman he had probably loved since their first year.

Hermione Granger was also having some jitters. This was the man who had the emotional range of a teaspoon. This was the man who was immature and insensitive. But, for better or for worse, this was the man her heart and soul had chosen. As much as she swore by logic and reasoning, she was glad her emotions had taken control.

The jitters disappeared when she reflected on the time she had known the freckled and read headed man. And she knew that she would always love him.

This is gonna be the best day of my life
My li-i-i-i-i-i-ife
This is gonna be the best day of my life
My li-i-i-i-i-i-ife

Arthur Weasley grinned at the stunning bride standing next to him. To him, she was perfect. He did not care what others said.

He thought of the life already growing inside her. They were expecting their first child already and he could not be happier. A beautiful and loving wife and a baby; how could life be any better.

Molly Prewett grinned back at the rather dashing man. The passion between them was remarkable. When they were together and in private, they couldn’t keep their hands off each other. When they were apart, they ached for each other.

She knew that their passions would last for years. For a moment she faltered, thinking of all the opportunities a child could happen. She shook it off though, she looked forward to the day when she could gather her children around and tell them of her wedding day.

I howled at the moon with friends
And then the sun came crashing in

Remus Lupin stared at the beautiful, young woman in front of him. He was in awe. Never in his wildest dreams or fantasies did he imagine that he would ever be given the opportunity to marry. He had resigned himself to the lonely life of a werewolf without companionship.

Not only was he getting married, but he was marrying a woman who looked past his lycanthropy. Nay, a woman who did not even see his furry little problem. She loved him unconditionally.

Nymphadora Tonks smiled at her husband-to-be, her eyes glued to his. Her heart leapt and her hair flashed from a formal brown to a exuberant red as he sent her a quick smile wider than any she had ever seen on his usually tired and sad face. She knew that she was the cause of that smile.

Yes, he was scarred and old, but she did not see that. She only saw the noble, brave man who had risked his life time and time again in pursuit a more perfect world. He was the only man she needed in his life.

But all the possibilities
No limits just epiphanies

Edward Tonks could not take his eyes off his bride. His eyes were glued to her’s. He could clearly see that she was nervous. Not that he blamed her of course. If he had family like her’s, he would go bonkers.

But they had made their decision and he would honor their commitment to each other. He knew she would too.

Andromeda Black also could not take her eyes off of him. She was risking everything for him. He was worth it though. Time and time again, he had shown her his love from him.

She only hoped that Bella or her sick friends never got her hands on him. They would not care he was married to a pureblood witch. If anything, it put him in more danger. She would protect him. No, they would protect each other.

I'm never gonna look back, Whoa-Oh
Never gonna give it up, No-Oh
Just don't wake me now

Frank Longbottom’s beautiful bride was, to be redundant, beautiful. She was everything he had dreamed of and so much more. She was intelligent, cunning, and brave.

He could not wait to start a family with her. He knew that she would be fantastic mother who would cherish each and every one of her children. He hoped that they would have many.

Alice Klein’s heart was aflutter as she looked at her handsome groom. He was such a good man and she was glad they had found each other during this troubled time. Sometimes she worried that they would not survive, but then she thought of this wonderful man and her optimism grew.

She knew that he wanted to start a family and she grinned to herself as she thought of the results she had gotten by owl that morning. She was sure that he would be very pleased by the news.

This is gonna be the best day of my life
My li-i-i-i-i-i-ife
This is gonna be the best day of my life
My li-i-i-i-i-i-ife

Scorpius Malfoy could not not believe that this red headed witch was marrying him. After growing up with her, going from wary acquaintances to friends, to lovers, it seemed like a roller coaster ride.

He looked to the side and smiled at his young son, who was completely unaware that his mommy and daddy were getting married. His heart filled with so much pride as he looked between his bride and child. They were perfect.

Rose Weasley was unable to stop the sigh of bliss escape her mouth as she watched her soon to be husband look at their child with so much love and affection. She had really found the one.

She thought back to the many adventures they had shared together. The dinner party from hell, the loss of friends, the unexpected pregnancy, and of course their madman in a box. All of them had affirmed what she had known for a longtime; Rose loved this blonde man very much.

I hear it calling
Outside my window
I feel it in my soul
The stars were burning so bright
The sun was out 'till midnight
I say we lose control

The minister said, “Do you take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife?”

“Till the day I die.”

“I do.”

“Finally, yes.”

“For as long as we are together.”

“For as long as we are together.”

“Of course.”

“Forever and always.”


This is gonna be the best day of my life
My li-i-i-i-i-i-ife
This is gonna be the best day of my life
My li-i-i-i-i-i-ife

The minister said, “Do you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband?”

“Till the day I die.”


“I do.”

“For us and our future children.”

“Together or not at all”


“Till the end of days.”


This is gonna be, this is gonna be
This is gonna be, the best day of my life
Everything is looking up, everybody up now
This is gonna be the best day of my liife
My li-i-i-i-i-ife
