[ "Bridal chorus" plays ]
Thorne: Hope you realize how lucky you are.
Ridge: I do.
Carter: Friends and family, thank you for being here to celebrate the reunion of a truly remarkable couple. Ridge and brooke have inspired all of us with their enduring devotion to each other. Today, we celebrate a love so strong it can overcome any obstacle and pull an entire family together.
[ Knocks on door ]
Wyatt: Well, that answers my question.
Wyatt: So you decided not to go.
Liam: I mean, I -- I never said I would.
Wyatt: Yeah, but you were thinking about it, and you got to know how much it means to steffy and her family for you to be there.
Liam: I mean, don't get me wrong. I wish I had it in me to be there, to celebrate ridge and brooke and see their family come together. In fact, I think -- I think they're counting on that inspiring me.
Wyatt: Their love story for the ages, right?
Liam: Yeah, well, not everybody gets a happy ending. As much as I want one, what happened between steffy and dad, that's just --
Wyatt: It's too much.
Wyatt: Yeah, I mean... look, if you don't want to be there, I totally understand, but I just... I don't know, I don't think you should be alone right now.
Carter: Now, I should probably skip this part. If anyone objects, you've had plenty of time to lodge your complaint before now.
[ Laughter ] Anyone?
Katie: [ Laughs ]
Thorne: [ Chuckles ]
Carter: No, I can't imagine anyone having a problem with the love and commitment we're celebrating today, a love that has more than stood the test of time, it defied it. It's that strength and resilience which brooke's sister katie would like to honor with the first reading.
Katie: Brooke and ridge chose this passage because it speaks to the theme of the ceremony and their strength as a couple. It's from 1 corinthians. "Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all things. Love is forever." The two of you have known each other and loved each other for most of your lives. And your belief in each other gives us all strength and inspiration and hope for our futures, and yours. I love you so much. [ Giggles ]
Brooke: Oh, my...
Liam: I still love steffy. We've had so much history together, I don't really know what life looks like without her in it.
Wyatt: Well, it doesn't look like this. This is only temporary.
Liam: Well, it wasn't supposed to be this way. And you know what's so messed up about that, is that I don't quit. I don't give up. I'm the guy who forgives.
Wyatt: Yeah, you are. It's kind of your special power.
Liam: Not anymore. I just -- I can'T. I keep trying, I keep searching, and it's just -- it's not there. And I don't want to pretend that it's there, either. I mean, like, if I had gone to the wedding with steffy, that would have given her hope, and honestly, I'm not sure there is any.
Wyatt: Okay. Fine. Fine, you don't want to be captain forgiveness, then you don't have to be. Like, you're not deliberately staying away to hurt her. You're not trying to send a message to her, you know? You're still a good guy, liam. You just -- you're doing what you have to do for yourself right now, and that's understandable. I mean, look, this -- this isn't gonna be easy, liam. You just -- you just have to know, like, you don't have to go through it alone. That's all I'm saying.
Liam: I know ridge and brooke thought that it would be this, like, symbolic thing for me, but... the truth is, it's their day. I shouldn't be there. I would just be a distraction.
Rick: The french poet anatole france -- "it is not enough to love passionately, you must love well. A passionate love is good doubtless, but a beautiful love is better."
Maya: "If compassion doesn't enter the feelings you have for one another, these feelings will not always befit all the circumstances of your life together. They will be like festive robes that will not shield you from the wind and rain."
Rick: "We love truly only those that we love in their weakness and in poverty. To forbear, to forgive, to console, now that is the science of love.
Maya: Science of love.
[ Laughter ]
Brooke: That's beautiful. Thank you.
Maya: We're so happy for you.
Brooke: Thank you.
Carter: Faith and forgiveness -- that's the heartbeat of marriage. Every couple faces its challenges, but with enough patience, faith, and forgiveness, every difficulty can be overcome. Ridge and brooke have proven that.
Eric: Yes, they have.
[ Laughter ] Before I read this, I want to say how overjoyed I am for both of you. For our whole family, really. I know that stephanie would be, too, if she were here. And I want to thank you for including her here today. This is her favorite author, george eliot. "What greater thing is there for two human souls, than to feel that they are joined to strengthen one other, to be one with each other in silent, unspeakable memories?" I've seen how the two of you have strengthened each other over the years and how your love and your devotion have helped you overcome all challenges, and how you've not only repaired those challenges, but you filled the cracks with gold. And I know that stephanie and beth are very happy and proud of both of you today. Congratulations.
Brooke: Thank you.
Liam: I mean, I know I don't seem like it, but I really am happy for ridge and brooke.
Wyatt: Yeah. It's a great love story.
Liam: It's taken them most of their lives. I mean, circumstances pull them apart, and they just -- their love just brings them right back together, doesn't it?
Wyatt: Well, love and a lot -- a lot of work. I mean, trust just -- it doesn't rebuild itself.
Liam: That's the way it should be for two passionate people. I mean, isn't that what they say, that together you can do anything, together you can overcome anything? I mean, nothing should be impossible for them.
Carter: St. John of the cross wrote, "in the evening of life, we will judged by love alone." Now, you're hardly there yet, but your love is truly beyond compare. I believe that everyone deserves a lifetime of happiness with the person they love, but, ridge and brooke... you've really earned it. We all know their history. Their love changed the course of forrester creations and the forrester family. Brooke's unshakable love for ridge turned her most formidable adversary into her most cherished friend. Ridge's respect and appreciation for brooke's talents has shaped the fortunes of everyone in this room. They have shown us the true power of love, the value of forgiveness, and the potential of the joy that lies beyond the storm. With a love like theirs, anything is possible. It builds bridges, ignites courage, conquers every fear and doubt. Ridge and brooke are an example, an inspiration, especially to their children, who couldn't be happier for their parents today, especially R.J., Who told me that he never doubted for a minute that this reunion would happen someday.
R.J.: That's true.
[ Laughter ]
Carter: It is my pleasure to preside over this ceremony and unite my friends in holy matrimony, helping them to fulfill what I can only call their destiny.
Carter: Ridge. Brooke. Join hands. You ready?
Ridge: Oh, I'm ready.
Carter: Will you take brooke to be your wife? Will you love her, comfort her, honor and cherish her in sickness and in health, forsaking all others, be faithful to her all the days of your life?
Ridge: I will.
Carter: Brooke. Will you take ridge to be your husband? Will you love him, comfort him, honor and cherish him in sickness and in health, forsaking all others, be faithful to him all the days of your life?
Brooke: I will.
Carter: Now that you've stated your intentions, you may share your vows. Brooke.
Brooke: Oh! [ Chuckles ]
Carter: [ Chuckles ]
Brooke: Me first. Okay. Ridge. You have stolen my heart from the moment I first met you, and that was in here, actually.
Brooke: The forrester mansion. I remember just turning around and looking in your eyes, and it was love at first sight. We've always been connected. No matter what, through our ups and downs and through our challenges or separations. But today I want to give you all of my heart. And I want you to protect it and to love it for the rest of our lives. And I'm gonna do the same for you. So, from this day forward, I vow to cherish you and to make sure that not one day passes where I don't let you know how much I truly love you.
Ridge: The hardest part about writing these vows was to rein myself in. Because, man, I could talk about you all day.
Brooke: [ Giggles ]
Ridge: What you are to me, what this relationship means to me... all the stuff we've been through... how much I love you. You said I stole your heart. Well, you rescued mine. Because you're my light. You're my star. And whenever I feel lost, all i have to do is look at you, and i know you'll guide my way home to our family, to our destiny. Thank you for letting me steal your heart. I promise I will cherish it for the rest of my life.
Carter: The rings. These rings symbolize the sanctity of marriage. When you wear them, remember the vows you made to each other. Ridge.
Ridge: Yeah, no, I know how this goes. I got this.
[ Sighs ] My logan... this ring is a symbol of my love, of my commitment to you, and it's there to remind you of the faith and the forgiveness that brought us together.
Brooke: [ Giggles ] Ridge. This ring is a symbol of my love and my commitment to you, and it's a reminder of the faith and forgiveness that's going to keep us together forever.
Carter: With the -- not yet!
[ Laughter ] With the exchanging of rings and solemn vows, you have pledged yourselves to each other. It is now my pleasure to pronounce you once again husband and wife. Ridge, you may kiss the bride.
Brooke: Oh! [ Laughs ]
[ Cheers and applause ]
Carter: Ladies and gentlemen, I present mr. And mrs. Ridge forrester.
[ Cheering ]
Ridge: As it is now, so it shall remain.
