Brooke: (Sighs) Ridge is coming. He'll be here. He's going to whisk me away any minute now.
Man: Marriage is a celebration. For most couples, it's a moment to look forward, to imagine the future, to make promises about how things will be. They hope for health, good times and prosperity, but as this couple knows, that isn't always what you get. Sometimes life can be much more cruel and heartbreaking than we want to imagine. Ridge and Taylor have seen bad times. They have suffered a heartbreaking tragedy. The loss of a child can tear a couple apart, but in this case, Phoebe's death brought her parents back together. It--seeing them here about to be joined in holy matrimony, we are reminded once again that God does indeed work in mysterious ways. From the depths of their loss, Ridge and Taylorís love was reborn up from the earth like a flower blooming after a hard and barren winter. Life and hope restored. They found comfort in the acceptance of God's will and with each other. So today, we celebrate with them. We witness and are in awe of the miracle of their reunion.
Katie: If Ridge had called off the wedding, I'd hear something by now. I'm gonna see if Brooke sent me any texts.
Bill: Hey, you.
Katie: Hi, um, do you have an appointment? Because Ericís not here.
Bill: I know. The big wedding. I assumed the Logan girls weren't invited. I thought you might be looking for something to do.
Katie: You're here to see me?
Bill: I believe that's hope I hear in your voice.
Katie: Actually, I have a phone call to make so--
Bill: But suddenly, you can't remember what's so important.
Katie: I need to call my sister.
Bill: Mm, yeah. Tough day for her, huh?
Bill: End of an era. The king and queen of Forrester are no longer.
Katie: Maybe. Maybe not.
Brooke: He's late. Why haven't you called? (Sighs) Where are you, Ridge?
Bill: Maybe not? Maybe Ridge and Brooke aren't over? Ridge and Taylor won't get married?
Bill: You do realize they are saying their vows right now.
Katie: Actually, Ridge asked my sister to meet him at Point Dume.
Katie: Yeah, right now. She's waiting for him.
Bill: Well, she's going to be waiting a long time. Ridge and Taylor are at the Forrester beach house saying their vows as we speak. I've got a photographer in a boat off Malibu taking a cover shot. Katie, I have had people on this all week. The wedding is a go. The caterers are here. The minister showed up. Wouldn't have sent my guy out there without confirmation.
Katie: Well, you didn't get confirmation from Ridge.
Bill: (Chuckles) So Ridge is just gonna leave Taylor at the altar?
Katie: I know. It sounds cruel.
Bill: No, Katie, it sounds wrong.
Brooke: "Ridge, I'm waiting. Our spot. I love you." (Sighs) Oh, where are you, Ridge? Please get here soon.
Stephanie: I have, um, two pearls of wisdom, I hope, to share with you. One is from the book of Psalms. The other, surprisingly, from Dante, but I think they complement on another.
(Cell phone vibrates)
Stephanie: From the book of Psalms-- "Weeping might remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning." And from Dante, in that book, which is my memory, on the first page...
Felicia: What are you doing? You're addicted to this thing. I'm turning it off.
(Cell phone chimes)
Felicia: Your parents are getting married again. You don't want to miss it.
Stephanie: "Life begins anew."
Brooke: Oh. "Coming. Be there as soon as I can." "Okay, see you soon. Hugs and kisses." (Giggles) (Sighs) Did you hear that? Yeah? (Sighs)
Stephanie: Today begins a new life for you and your children and for the whole family, really. At long last, the night gives way to a new morning. Today, you get to turn the page on your story and give it a happy ending. I wish you all the joy in the world.
Brooke: "Delivery failed. Forwarded message undeliverable to..." What? That's not Ridge's number.
(Cell phone buttons beep)
(Cell phone rings)
Steffy: Hey, it's Steffy. Leave a message, and I'll get back to you.
Brooke: Oh, my God. Steffy? It's a trick. She had my messages to Ridge forwarded to-- to her phone. Ridge isn't coming.. (Sighs) He's getting married. (Breathing heavily) I've got to stop him. I've got to stop him. (Groans) Come on. (Clicks tongue)
Katie: Look, Ridge and Taylor have been through hell. They are grieving the loss of their daughter, they're trying to hold their family together, but what he has with Taylor is not the same... (Sighs) as what he has with my sister.
Bill: True love?
Katie: Yeah. Don't you believe in it?
Bill: Do you?
Katie: I guess I believe in theirs. I grew up with it. Brooke has spent her entire life loving Ridge or longing for him. If he tells her to wait for him on the beach, she'll wait for him for as long as it takes.
Taylor: Ridge, we have made vows to each other in the past, and even as we stand here now vowing to love and make each other happy, I know this time will be a little bit different, a little more blessed, because we have an angel in our corner this time. This is-- this is what Phoebe wanted-- all three of our children. I-- (Sighs) I know that they're a testament to the fact that we--we belong together. We were meant to be together. And I will treasure you every single day, every moment we have, because we never know what tomorrow will bring. I vow to love, to honor and to respect you every single day, and I will-- with every kiss good morning and every kiss good night, I will renew those vows to you every day for the rest of my life.
Man: Ridge, your pledge to Taylor.
Ridge: Phoebe is with us today-- I-I feel that, too-- smiling down on us, seeing her family reunited. That's what this day is about-- a day of reunion, a day of recommitment. It's true what you said. Over the years, at times, we have lost our way. We've suffered great loss. But today marks the end of all that.
Ridge: This is a time when we will come together, you and me and our beloved children Steffy and Thomas, and our dreams for our family and ourselves will once again come true. This is a day of letting go of sadness and pain to celebrate the love the family brings to each of its members. For in our family, we are each made greater than any of us individually and this is my promise to you. Iíll be there with you to provide a loving, happy, peaceful place to be. I will be your husband and the father to our children. And you will bring the strength to hold this family together in love and light and harmony. We will treasure the good times we have, the love that we share, for better or for worse, in sickness and in health, for richer, for poorer. I will be here for you with our family in peace from this breath to my last.
Brooke: Darn it. (Sighs) (Groans) (Sighs) Trigger!
(Trigger whinnies) (Trigger snorts)
Brooke: Good boy. Come on. (Groans)
Man: Ridge and Taylor have made their vows, pledging themselves to each other before God and all of us. May the words they've said to each other here guide them through the hard times. May their commitment grow ever stronger and their love deepen with each passing day.
Man: May I have the rings? Thank you. Wear this ring as a symbol of your vow. Exchange them to be bound together as though you were placing your hearts in each other's hands, because in so many ways, you are. Taylor, place this ring on Ridge's left hand and repeat after me. With this ring, I thee wed...
Taylor: Ridge, with this ring, I thee wed...
Man: And pledge to you my everlasting faith and love.
Taylor: And pledge to you my everlasting faith and love.
Man: Ridge, will you take this ring and place it on Taylorís finger and repeat after me? With this ring, I thee wed...
Ridge: With this ring, I thee wed...
Man: And pledge to you my everlasting faith and love.
Ridge: And pledge to you my everlasting faith and love.
Man: As we witness and celebrate this sacred union, it is our duty to honor and protect it, to offer guidance and support whenever it's needed, and to respect Ridge and Taylorís commitment, and help strengthen it whenever we can. So I charge you, if there is anyone here who knows any reason why this couple should not be married, speak now or forever hold your peace.
Thomas: (Whispers) Come on. Come on. Say "I do" already.
Man: Taylor, will you take this man as your husband, to love him, comfort him, honor and keep him, in good times and in bad and remain faithful to him for all the days that you live?
Taylor: I will.
Man: Ridge, will you take this woman as your wife, to love her, comfort her, honor and keep her in good times and in bad and remain faithful to her for all the years that you live?
Ridge: I will.
Man: Taylor, Ridge, it is my great pleasure by the power of the church and the state of California to pronounce you man and...
(Hoof beats approach)
Brooke: Hold it right there, Padre. There isn't going be a wedding today. (Breathing heavily)
