Liam: I know I’m keeping you from work.

Hope: Mm.

Liam: But I don’t care.

Hope: Uh, yeah. You are giving me a reason to hurry up and, uh, get this all done so we can have a little time together before the kids come home.

Liam: Mm, yeah. Oh, yeah. Oh. Yeah! Uh, I’m–I’m gonna finish my emails too. I don’t wanna slow you down.

Hope: All right, well, I just need to sign this one document.

Liam: Cool.

[ Phone chimes ] It’s steffy. It’s their wedding announcement. Steffy and finn are getting married.

Steffy: And my cousin zende usually works in here. He’s also a designer.

Jack: Wow. Is your whole family in the business, steffy?

Steffy: [ Laughing ] Yeah, yeah, pretty much.

Li: So lovely you’re all so close. It’s really nice meeting your dad, and your brother, and your grandfather. Brooke, too.

Steffy: Well, they were very excited to meet you too, li.

Finn: And now, they know my whole life story, with pictures. Thanks, mom.

Steffy: [ Laughing ]

Li: I know you don’t like to talk about yourself, finn. Your fiancée didn’t even know you were adopted.

Finn: Well, until we had hayes, I never really thought about it. And you guys are my parents.

Steffy: And you raised an incredible son.

Hope: Steffy sent the announcement to you, too?

Liam: [ Laughing ] Not just to me. It’s–it’s all over social media.

Hope: [ Laughing ] Well, they’re obviously excited for their wedding.

Finn: Yeah. Well, they’re not waiting around, are they?

Hope: No, when finn proposed, I thought they might get married right away.

Liam: Yeah, but you know, there was a lot going on. Baby and all that.

Hope: Well now, they can have the big celebration that they deserve.

Liam: Yeah.

Hope: I’m really happy for them both.

Liam: Me too.

Hope: It feels like a big step forward, for all of us. I mean, you’re finally home. We’re enjoying our family together. And steffy has met the man that she wants to spend the rest of her life with.

Steffy: Just gave them a behind-the-scenes tour.

Eric: Oh, that’s great.

Li: It’s fascinating.

Eric: You just missed phyllis summers.

Steffy: Oh, really? She came in from genoa city?

Eric: Yes, and it was a quick trip. She had to get back for–for a meeting. She, uh, was sorry to miss you. She wanted me to give you her best wishes for this wonderful time in your lives. So, um, how was the tour?

Steffy: [ Chuckles ]

Jack: Oh, you have built a very impressive business, eric.

Eric: Thank you. But I have to give my children and my grandchildren credit for what it’s become.

Li: Steffy says you’re still very much involved.

Steffy: Oh, yes, you are working on a fabulous collection.

Eric: Yes, I am, and I have some wonderful new ideas. One in particular, I think you’d be interested in.

Steffy: What is it?

Eric: How would you like to get married at my house?

Steffy: At your house?

Eric: I mean, you have a wonderful home. I love your place. But it’s up here, it’s at the ocean. It’s beautiful, right?

Steffy: I mean, having a wedding at your house, that’s family tradition, and I–I would love… well, it’s–it’s really up to both of us. Would you wanna do it?

Finn: Uh, yes, what…

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, we would love to. It’s so wonderful how much you wanna make this day so perfect for us.

Eric: Good. Makes me very happy.

Jack: [ Chuckles ]

Hope: You’re really happy for steffy?

Liam: [ Laughing ] Y-yes. Hell yes, I am. Finn’s a good guy.

Hope: He adores her.

Liam: And, he adores kelly, which is a big deal for me.

Hope: Steffy can depend on him, and kelly can too.

Liam: Right.

Hope: He wants to be a good stepfather to her.

Liam: Yeah, and I think steffy believes that he will be.

Hope: And what about you?

Liam: Like… for… I just–I just want kelly to be loved by everyone in her life. That’s my thing. I mean, it’s–it’S… yeah, no, nobody’s gonna love kelly as much as I do. But that doesn’t mean I’m jealous of finn’s relationship with her. Or his relationship with steffy, for that matter.

Hope: Good. I’m glad to hear that. I mean, obviously, you and steffy are always going to be connected. And you know, sure, at times, that has been difficult to accept. But we’ve all been through a lot together. And sure, steffy and I have always been rivals, but we don’t want it to affect the kids. We can only keep fighting these same battles over and over again so many times. I–I really do think this wedding is the beginning of a new chapter for all of us.

Steffy: My grandfather’s house is gorgeous. It’s the perfect spot for a wedding.

Eric: Yeah, we’ve hosted quite a few, but I think this one would be extra special. You know, your relationship, the two of you, it’s been an absolute inspiration.

Li: Finn says your family’s been very supportive.

Eric: Yeah, we–we find finn very interesting, yeah.

[ Both laughing ] No, we appreciate very much this extraordinary young man that you’ve raised, and how happy he’s made my granddaughter. I hope you’re aware that she likes to do things her own way. You know that.

Steffy: Oh, yeah, okay. I’m a little unconventional, but the more I think about it, I–I want our wedding to be about–about family.

Jack: I am so sorry that your mother can’t get back for the ceremony.

Steffy: Thank you. I was really hoping she could be my matron of honor. But since she can’t be there… it’d be really important for me to have someone else, if it’s okay with you.

Eric: It’s your wedding, you can have anyone you like.

Steffy: Okay, good, um… because I would… I would love to have my grandmother.

Eric: I get it. So, you wanna put stephanie’s portrait back up above the mantle?

Steffy: I would love that. Uh, my–my grandmother, she’s not just my namesake. Um, she was everything to me. I went to her for support and advice. I mean, she was one tough cookie, but she loved this family more than anyone.

Eric: She would be very proud of the woman you’ve become. It’s a great idea to have her at the wedding. Of course.

Steffy: [ Chuckles ] Thank you.

Eric: Yeah. Oh, I–I would love to tell you both about stephanie, and I will one of these days. But I have to–I have a meeting across town, I’m sorry.

Jack: Oh, please, excuse us. Um, didn’t you want to get back to the house to check on hayes and kelly?

Finn: Yes, uh, before amelia takes kelly to her class.

Eric: All right, I’ll see you both very soon.

Li: Okay, all right.

Eric: Bye-bye.

Li: See you soon.

Eric: Good to see you again.

Jack: Pleasure.

Eric: See you soon.

Steffy: Um, I’m gonna just, uh, I’ll be a little longer. I’m just gonna, um, do some wedding things real quick.

Finn: Okay, do you want our help?

Steffy: No, no, no, it’s fine, it’s fine.

Finn: Yeah?

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: Okay.

Steffy: I love you.

Li: Okay, bye, steffy.

Steffy: Bye.

Hope: But I wanna start introducing the–

[ Phone chimes ] Oh.

Steffy: Hey.

Hope: Liam and I saw your announcement. Congratulations.

Steffy: Thanks. Where are you?

Hope: We’re at the cabin.

Steffy: Can I stop by? It’s important.

Hope: Sure. Yeah, we’ll be here.

Liam: Steffy coming over?

Hope: Mm-hmm, and she says it’s important. I wonder what she wants to see us about. Ok everyone, our mission is to provide complete,

Finn: Thanks, amelia. Have fun, kelly. I’ll see you when you get home, honey. Hayes still sleeping?

Li: All wrapped up like a little burrito.

Finn: Oh, you are a pro.

Jack: Where’s kelly off to?

Finn: Uh, tumbling class.

Li: You two are so cute together.

Finn: Oh, I know. I love being her stepdad.

Jack: Do you get along with her father?

Finn: Uh, we’re respectful.

Li: Liam, is it?

Finn: Liam spencer. He’s a–he’s a good dad. He loves kelly, and he cares for steffy too. But, uh, put it this way. They have a long, complicated history. He’s not a bad person, just not the right one for steffy.

Li: They had a bad relationship?

Finn: Uh, she could never feel secure with him. Too many… surprises. But when steffy and i got together, I freed her from that cycle. She can depend on me. And even my jokes are reliable. The last thing that I would ever wanna do is bring any complications into her life.

Liam: So, steffy wanted to see us both?

Hope: Yep.

Liam: I mean, that’s gotta be about the wedding, right?

Hope: I don’t know. I don’T… know if she’d even want to involve us in that.

Liam: [ Laughing ]

Hope: So…

Liam: Yeah, maybe not–maybe not us. But did–but how did she–like, she said it was important, you said. So, did she sound stressed or…

Hope: No, it was just–it was a quick phone call. It just–it just sounded like she had a lot to get done.

Liam: But like from her tone, was it good news or bad news? ‘Cause she’s gonna tell us something.

Hope: Well, I think we’re about to find out.

Liam: I know, but I wanna– I wanna prepare myself. If it’s bad news, I…

Hope: Hi!

Liam: Hey!

Steffy: Hi.

Hope: Come on in. Congratulations again.

Steffy: Thank you. Hey.

Liam: Congratulations.

Steffy: Thanks. Finn and I are very excited.

Liam: I bet kelly’s excited too.

Steffy: Oh my gosh, you should see her. She’s already, like, practicing her flower girl walk.

Liam: Aw.

Steffy: It is so cute.

Hope: Aw.

Steffy: Finn’s parents are so charmed.

Liam: Are his folks in town?

Steffy: Yeah, jack and li. Yeah, they’ll–they’ll be at the ceremony. It’s perfect timing.

Hope: Well, that’s coming up fast, isn’t it?

Steffy: Yeah, yeah. My–my grandfather offered to have it at his house. He didn’t know if I wanted something traditional, but you know, I–I say why not? It’s a new chapter. And it’s, you know, my family’s home, we have so much history.

Hope: Mm.

Liam: Mm-hmm.

Hope: Well, I agree. I mean, it does feel like a new chapter for all of us.

Steffy: Yeah, that’s exactly what I want my wedding to be about. Just something new, you know. We’re honoring the past, and looking towards the future. Actually, my–my grandfather’s gonna put my grandmother, her portrait on the wall. It’s gonna be so nice.

Liam: Oh, that’s a nice touch.

Steffy: Yeah, it is, especially since my mom’s not gonna be there. But I’m–I’m still trying to figure out a way to pull the family together. Finn has brought so many incredible changes in my life. I mean, there’s so many times our–our relationship could have gone off the tracks. But he made sure that didn’t happen, and he always knew that we had a future, and he wouldn’t let anything get in the way.

Hope: Well, that’s certainly something to celebrate.

Steffy: That’s why I came by. I know our announcement was a little impersonal.

Liam: Oh, no, stop.

Steffy: But finn and I are just so happy, and we want everyone to know it. The actual ceremony, I think it’s gonna be a little more private.

Liam: Sure.

Steffy: Intimate, yeah.

Hope: It’s your day. It should be whatever you want it to be.

Liam: Exactly. The last thing that you need right now is drama.

Steffy: Yeah. You’re right. Finn helped me get to a place of real peace. And that’s what I want my wedding to be about. A new start. A fresh start. That’s why I’m–I’m really hoping you’d agree to be there.

Hope: Us?

Liam: You sure you want us at your wedding?

Steffy: I do. To be a thriver

Finn: Yeah, I know it seems like steffy’s lived this charmed life with all these advantages. And–and she’s had that. But what’s really remarkable about her is how much she has overcome.

Li: We’d never presume to know what someone else has been through, finn.

Jack: Everybody has their own challenges to face.

Finn: Steffy’s been carrying a lot on her own. And when we first got together, I wanted her to change that. And I’m not slamming liam. I’m sure his intentions were good. But his follow-through was not. For whatever reason, he could never make steffy a priority. I do.

Li: And she’s lucky for it.

Finn: No, we both are. She’s given me so much. Our love, and kelly, and hayes. You know, I’ve always found purpose in my job. How I’ve been proud, especially following in my mom’s footsteps and becoming a doctor. But our family is so much more. It’s–it’S… I mean, I can’t even put it into words.

Jack: We’re parents, son. We understand.

Finn: Yeah, and I know steffy feels that too. I wanna make sure she always feels that way. She deserves a smooth, serene, drama-free life.

Li: Mm. Well, I’m confident that you will bring steffy nothing but joy.

Steffy: Thanks, mom.

Li: Right, jack?

Hope: You want us at your wedding? I mean, of course we want to support you.

Steffy: Well, you and liam are part of the family. We always wanted to put the kids first, give them a sense of connection.

Liam: Actually, I think we’ve done a really good job of that.

Steffy: Yeah, we have. But honestly, this is more than the kids. Like, our history… it doesn’t have to be a negative thing. The forresters, and spencers, and finnegans, we could really just be like a big, messy family.

Liam: [ Chuckles ]

Steffy: I’d–I’d like that. I believe that could happen.

Hope: I do too.

Steffy: So, you’ll be there?

Liam: Yes, steffy. Absolutely, we’ll be there.

Steffy: Great. Thank you.

Hope: No, thank you.

Liam: Yeah.

Steffy: Hope, I know we’ve been in this, like, vicious tug-of-war. But it doesn’t have to be that way, and I know we vowed that we were gonna stop it, and didn’t always work out, but…

Hope: No, and that was frustrating, because I–I know we can do better.

Steffy: I know. We have. Especially recently. I really think that we’re moving forward. Which is why I would like to do something to acknowledge that. I’m starting a new life with finn. You’re happy with liam. We have beautiful children, we’re strong accomplished women, and we need to be there for each other. Which is why I’d be very grateful if you’d be at the altar with me.

Hope: At the altar?

Steffy: Yeah, if you were my matron of honor.

Hope: W-wait, you want me to be part of the ceremony?

Steffy: I would absolutely love that. And we could get ready together, we could plan the wedding. Think about what it would mean to our daughters. Honestly, imagine what it would have been like for us if our moms actually got along. This would mean a lot to me.

Hope: And to me. I mean, so, so much.

Steffy: So, you–you’ll do it?

Hope: Yes.

Steffy: Yes! Oh!

Hope: Yes, of course! I’d be honored to stand for you, steffy.

Steffy: Oh, really?

Hope: Yes.

Steffy: Oh. I’m really excited about this. No, I–I can’t wait to tell finn. This has just–this made my wedding even more exciting. Thank you, this is gonna be a day we’re never gonna forget.
