Dale proudly walked his beautiful daughter down the aisle.
Even though he’d thought that it would be easier than Sharlee’s wedding because he liked Jared and hadn’t approved of Noah, he was still very emotional.
Skylar and Madison were flower girls, and Casey was the ringbearer.
Jared waited anxiously at the alter for his bride to appear.
When he saw her, she took his breath away.
Dale had tears in his eyes as he placed Cara’s hand into Jared’s. Then he went to join Alissa and sat down beside her and Logan.
Most of their family and friends were in attendance. Seated on Jared’s family’s side of the aisle were both of his parents in the front row and his sister Diana’s son, Timothy Jr. On the second row, his brother Logan’s wife, Lilly, Jared’s aunt Susie and his grandparents Mary Lu and Buck were seated.
On the third row were Cara’s cousin Devon, her cousin Kaylee, her aunt Leslie and uncle George.
Shawn’s wife Fae was also seated on the third row holding their sleeping son, Shane.
On the other side of the aisle, Alissa and Dale were seated with little Logan between them. He’d insisted on sitting in a chair like a big boy.
On the row behind them, Cara’s grandparents Robert and Valerie and her great grandparents Rémi and Charlotte were seated. On the third row, Cara’s grandparents Matthew and Kaye, her aunt Crystal and Crystal’s boyfriend Angelo were seated.
Noah was also seated there holding his and Sharlee’s youngest son, Dylan.
Dylan was enthralled with everything going on around him.
On the back row, Cara’s uncle Alex and Miki and Jamil who were like an aunt and uncle to all of the Stallworth children were seated.
Cara’s friend Niki also slid into a seat in the back row just as the wedding began.
Cara and Jared joyfully exchanged their vows.
The officiant pronounced them as husband and wife.
Then the officiant told Jared that he could kiss his bride.
They shared a kiss, and then Sharlee returned Cara’s bouquet.
Jared looked at Cara mischievously and dipped Cara and gave her a long passionate kiss.
Then as husband and wife, they stood facing their families and friends with happy smiles.
Cara quickly changed into another gown so that she could dance comfortably.
Then their wedding reception began.
Cara sat in Jarad’s lap. They looked at each other not quite yet believing that they were finally married.
The wedding party sat at the head table with the bride and groom. Sharlee was the matron of honor, and Jared’s brother, Logan, was the best man. The bridesmaids were Joy and Jared’s sisters, Diana, Theresa and Lea. The groomsmen were Shawn, Aiden, Diana’s husband Timothy and Jared’s good friend Taylor Lautner who starred in many popular movies.
Seated at a table together were Cara’s aunt, uncle and cousins the Deans. Her uncle Alex sat with them and so did her friend Niki.
At another table, Jared’s parents were sitting with his grandparent’s Buck and Mary Lu, his aunt Susie, his nephew Timothy Jr. and his sister-in-law Lilly.
Jared’s son Casey had fallen asleep.
Cara’s parents were seated together along with her great grandparents Rémi and Charlotte, her grandparents Valerie and Robert and her grandparents Matthew and Kaye. Alissa was holding Noah’s and Sharlee’s son Dylan. Valerie was holding Shawn’s son Shane.
Noah sat at a table with Skylar, Logan, Crystal, Angelo, Miki, Jamil, Fae and Madison.
Jared and Cara went out onto the dance floor for their first dance as husband and wife.
Each looked into the eyes of the other and felt as if they were completely alone.
Cara knew that she was with the one man in all the world with whom she could be completely herself. He loved her for who she is and she loved him with all of her heart.
As they twirled around on the dance floor together, Jared felt content and happy that he had found his other half, and he was determined to do whatever it took to keep her and Casey happy.
There were many pictures taken at the wedding and reception. Everyone had a memorable and enjoyable time. All were happy to have been a part of Cara’s and Jared’s special day.
They had their honeymoon in a beachside villa. Cara learned that Donatello had been right about something else. There truly was a huge difference between sleeping with someone and making love. She made love with her new husband and enjoyed every second of it. After that, she never wasted another thought on Donatello.
Cara and Jared will have a special wedding album. I’ll post the link later this week. I hope you enjoyed reading Cara’s storyline. ❤
