Kyle: Welcome to the wedding of mariah copeland and tessa porter. Weddings are generally solemn occasions. Two people proclaiming their love and commitment to each other in a very public forum requires some seriousness, after all. And while tessa and mariah take their commitment to each other very seriously, this wedding will be…”the funkiest, grooviest, most bad-ass wedding you’ve ever been to.”

[ Laughter ]

[ Cheers and applause ]

Kyle: Tessa and mariah have written their own vows to each other that they would like to share with us at this time. Tessa.

Tessa: [ Sighs ] I knew today would be the happiest day of my life, because it was the day that we begin our married life together. I’m not gonna lie, I — I never thought I would be here, because I had given up on love and everything that comes with it. But you broke down all my walls. You saw all of me.

[ Chuckles ] The best of me, the worst.

[ Both laugh ] And you embraced me entirely. Our connection is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. It fills my soul and inspires me. Every lyric and every note of every song is about you and the love that we share together, because everything that I’ve learned about love is because of you. I have many more songs to write, so I can’t wait for our future together. And I can’t wait to see what lessons we learn along our beautiful adventure. I promise to be your partner through all of it. Your best friend, your champion, and your shoulder to lean on, now and always.

Mariah: Wow.

[ Both laugh ] You got me all teary.

[ Laughs ] Okay.

[ Sighs ] Even though I have wanted this for so long, I cannot believe that we are actually here. Growing up, wishes like this just didn’t come true for me. And I never had much. And then a miracle happened — the first miracle of the two great miracles of my life. I found my mom.

[ Sniffles ] And sharon has taught me so much. I’ve learned so much from her. I learned how to love, and i learned how important it is, so I was ready for you when you came along. Even though I didn’t exactly know what was happening at first.

[ Laughs ] I just thought…I had met an amazing person who was gonna become my friend. And I soon realized that it was, you know, a bit more than friendship. And the date — our first date that kyle set up — when you held my hand, it just felt right. And looking around now, it all feels so right. Tessa, I am so grateful that you are in my life.

[ Chuckles ] And I swear you are magic.

[ Both laugh ] You are like an alchemist — everything you touch turns to gold. And so here we are, committing our lives to each other, about to start our own family, and i know that that’s gonna be golden, too. I also know there are gonna be good times and there are gonna be bad times. But, tessa, I promise you that I am going to be right by your side, holding your hand through it all, just like I am now.

[ Sniffles ] Because when we are together, there is nothing that we can’t do. I love you and I am yours today and tomorrow and forever. I’m on a mission to talk to people about

The role of

summer newman-abbott is now

being played by allison lanier.

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Allie: Do you need help?

Summer: Hi.

Allie: Hi.

Summer: Oh, you must be allie.

Allie: I am.

Summer: I’m summer, kyle’s wife.

Allie: Oh, right. Of course. I heard you were coming.

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Allie: It’s nice to meet you. Here, let me help you.

Summer: Oh.

Allie: Here. Oh, my god.

[ Laughs ]

Summer: [ Sighs ]

Allie: Here you go.

Summer: [ Chuckles ] Oh, my god, thank you. I tried to pack light for this trip, but it didn’t work out. I am my mother’s daughter.

Allie: Phyllis, right?

Summer: Yeah.

Allie: Yeah.

Summer: Oh, my god, you must have met so many people since you’ve been here.

Allie: Yeah, yeah, there were a lot of names to put with faces.

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Allie: I met all the abbotts at once.

Summer: They were all together?

Allie: Yeah, I interrupted a family meeting.

Summer: Mm, I bet I know what that was about.

Allie: [ Sighs ] Yeah, it was pretty awkward walking in on that. And, you know, but they’ve all been really, really nice.

Summer: Even billy?

Allie: Yes, even billy. He’s been great. You know, I actually met your mom while I was out in la.

Summer: Hmm.

Allie: She’s one of the big reasons that I’m here. She’s been really supportive of jack and I to spend time together.

Summer: Hmm, well, if she was encouraging you to come out here, you must have passed her test. She can be supportive, but she’s also super protective of jack, of anyone she loves, really.

Allie: Oh, yeah, yeah, I have seen that side of her, too. When she heard that kyle’s mom was alive and had orchestrated the whole thing, oh, man, she was not happy about that.

Summer: Rightfully so. This whole thing has been so crazy. It’s been really hard on kyle.

Allie: He’ll be really glad that you’re here.

Summer: Well, he won’t be thrilled that I’m late, which wasn’t my fault, by the way. My flight was delayed. But I do need to get to the wedding, so we better get dressed and ready.

Allie: Wait, we?

Summer: Yeah. You’re coming with me, right?

Kyle: Tessa, will you take mariah to be your wife? Will you love, honor, and cherish mariah and remain faithful to her as long as you both shall live?

Tessa: I will.

Kyle: Mariah, will you take tessa to be your wife? Will you love, honor, and cherish tessa and remain faithful to her as long as you both shall live?

Mariah: I will.

[ Both laugh ]

Kyle: Excellent.

[ Whispers ] You two are doing great.

Kevin: [ Chuckles ]

Kyle: We will now have the exchange of the rings. Does the maid and man of honor have the rings?

Kevin: The man of honor does.

Crystal: The maid of honor does.

Tessa: This ring is a symbol of my everlasting love. With it, I offer all that I am and all that I hope to be.

Kevin: [ Chuckles ]

Mariah: This ring is a symbol of my everlasting love. And with it, I offer all that i am and all that I hope to be.

Kyle: It is my honor to pronounce mariah copeland and tessa porter officially — and as you can see, blissfully — married.

Tessa: [ Exhales sharply ]

Kyle: Come on, you can now kiss the bride.

Mariah: Oh, thank you!

[ Applause ]

[ Both laugh ]

Tessa: [ Laughs ] We are america’s doctors. And some of us…

Allie: Wait, you want me to go to the wedding?

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, I don’t think so.

Summer: You have to. I’m sure you’re invited, and if not, you’re my personal guest.

Allie: Which I really appreciate. Jack did invite me, it’s just that I am not comfortable going.

Summer: But you’ll know people there — I mean, me, jack, kyle, my mom.

Allie: Yes, but I’ve never even met the happy couple.

Summer: Oh, don’t even worry about those two. They have a “more the merrier” mentality. I mean, if mariah wants me there, I’m sure she would welcome a stranger like you with open arms.

Allie: You two don’t get along?

Summer: Hmm, not since the first time we met.

Allie: [ Chuckles ]

Summer: But as big of a pain as she can be, she’s kyle’s best friend, and tessa’s pretty cool.

Allie: Yeah, yeah, I am a big fan of her music.

Summer: Well, then think of this as an opportunity to meet her in person. It’s gonna be a fun wedding. And we’re late, so we’re missing all the boring parts. It’ll just be a big party.

Allie: Yeah, thing is, I am not really a big party person.

Summer: Oh, did I say a big party? No, I meant a small, delightful gathering of pleasant and friendly individuals.

Allie: Oh, right, right, right. Somehow I don’t think I should be trusting you.

Summer: Hmm, probably not, but I don’t think that you should stay in this enormous old house by yourself. It’s probably haunted.

Allie: Really? Really, you’re gonna scare me into going with you?

Summer: [ Scoffs ] Come to the wedding, allie. I promise you, you’re gonna have a good time. And if you don’t, you can come back here and never take my word for anything ever again. Deal?

Allie: Okay, okay, I will go.

Summer: Yes! You won’t regret this.

Allie: Yeah, but the problem is I don’t have anything to wear.

Summer: That’s not a problem at all. See, I just got off the plane from milan, the fashion capital of the world, with all of these enormous suitcases, so we’ve got plenty of options. We’ll find you the perfect outfit. Now let’s get ready.

Allie: [ Sighs ]

Faith: Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in welcoming mariah and tessa as they share their first dance as a married couple.

[ Cheers and applause ]

Tessa: We did it.

Mariah: Yes, we did. Got dressed up in fancy dresses and got our hair did and in front of all of these people said, “I love this woman and i want her to be my wife.”

Tessa: We did. And you look amazing.

Mariah: You look more amazing.

Tessa: Do you think that’s why everyone’s staring at us? Because we looking amazing?

Mariah: I think that’s exactly why.

Nick: I know what you’re thinking.

Sharon: Yeah? What?

Nick: Rey would’ve loved this.

Sharon: That’s exactly it. I know he would have said this is the most beautiful wedding he’s ever seen, since ours.

Nick: He’s here. He’s with us. So is cassie.

Kevin: I am so proud of them. You know, there was a time i didn’t think their relationship would survive. But all the obstacles, all the pain they caused each other, it didn’t tear them apart. You know why? I will tell you why — because the love is always there. Just goes to show you, the power of love can conquer all. Ow. What was that for?

Chloe: You know what. Our relationship should’ve taught you that. Everything that we have been through ought to have proved that if two people are meant to be, then they are meant to be.

Kevin: Well, of course, but, you know, with mariah and tessa, it was shaky. Things were touch-and-go for a while. We didn’t know that they were gonna have a happy ending. But with you and me, babe, baby bird, it was written in the stars. There was never any doubting our love.

Chloe: Oh, nice save, fisher.

Kevin: Thank you.

[ Chuckles ]

Chloe: You know what I think is so amazing about this wedding?

Kevin: What’s that?

Chloe: Just a few years ago, this never would have happened. It wasn’t legal. And now, no one would even question it. Two people should be able to marry whoever they want, and that is the real power of love.

Kevin: Well said. May I have this dance?

Chloe: Yes, you may.

Tessa: Oh, I’m so happy.

Mariah: Me too. I am so deliriously happy.

Tessa: I love you so much.

Mariah: I love you, too. Hi, I’m karen.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Tessa: Okay. I could use a break.

Mariah: What? No! You said this was gonna be a dance competition. You’re gonna ruin our chances for the grand prize.

Tessa: Well, I already have the grand prize, and I have a ring to prove it. Do you want some champagne?

Mariah: Oh, yes, please. I would love some.

Amanda: One second, ladies.

Mariah: Hi!

Amanda: I just have to say congratulations. And your vows were absolutely beautiful.

Tessa: Thank you.

Abby: You both looked gorgeous up there.

Tessa: Oh, don’t stop dancing on account of us. We’re just getting some champagne.

Mariah: Yes, save a dance for me, okay?

Chance: Who should save a dance?

Mariah: All of you. All of you save a dance because I’m dancing with all of you before the night is over. Got it?

Devon: You heard her.

Tessa: Hi.

Noah: Hey, crystal.

Crystal: Noah, I heard you did all this. Great job. You crushed it.

Noah: Oh, well, thank you. My instructions were very clear. They said, “make it look like a wedding, but not a wedding-wedding.”

Crystal: That’s helpful.

Noah: That’s mariah.

Crystal: Well, mission accomplished. It looks amazing.

Noah: Well, thank you, but you know what’s really amazing? You being here for your sister. I don’t think anything could’ve made tessa happier.

Crystal: I’m so glad I could be here for her.

Noah: Well, I want to hear what you’re gonna do with this newfound freedom of yours, but we don’t have to talk around the boring old bar. Care to dance?

Crystal: Lead the way.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Kyle: You are here. Thank god, I’ve missed you.

Summer: I’ve missed you, too. We have a lot to talk about.

Kyle: [ Chuckles ] Hey, allie. Sorry, I didn’t see you there.

Allie: [ Chuckles ] No need to ever apologize for being glad to see your wife.

Phyllis: Supergirl! Oh, my god, supergirl! Look at this dress. That’s amazing.

Jack: It’s been too long, kid. Get over here.

Summer: Oh, yeah?

Jack: Get over here.

Summer: Did I miss something big?

Jack: Uh, you don’t know the half of it. You look beautiful.

Allie: Thank you, jack.

Jack: Let me guess, you ran into summer at the house and she dragged you here.

Allie: You know, she can be very persuasive.

[ Laughter ]

Jack: Don’t know where she gets that. Hey. Let me show you around. I got a few people I’d love to introduce you to.

Allie: Yeah, that sounds awesome.

Summer: You’re doing great, allie.

Phyllis: Hey, I missed you. I missed you so much. Not as much as kyle, of course.

Summer: Well, I’m here now for whatever you need.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. Okay, well, I’ll let you guys catch up. I’m not gonna hover. I’ll, you know —

Summer: Mm, look at you, mom, reading the room.

Phyllis: I read the room.

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Kyle: I missed you.

Summer: Missed you.

Amanda: So I need to know — are you two going on a honeymoon?

Devon: Oh, yeah.

Tessa: Yes.

Mariah: Yes.

Tessa: But the details are confidential.

Mariah: Mm-hmm.

Amanda: Okay, no, you can tell me. Yes, you can. Come on, come on. It’ll be our little sec– our little secret.

Devon: [ Laughs ] She gonna get it out of her.

Mariah: Oh, well, great. That’s perfect.

[ Laughs ]

Devon: Gosh, I can’t even begin to tell you how happy I am that this day has come for you.

[ Chuckles ]

Mariah: Thank you. Yeah, I am so happy that you could be here to celebrate.

Devon: Are you kidding me? Of course I’m here to celebrate with you, after everything we’ve been through — friendship, business, dating, friendship again.

Mariah: Yeah, that’s — that’s a lot.

Devon: Yeah. You helped bring an amazing new life into the world. But I’ll tell you, I’ve never seen you like you look today. You’re glowing. Looks like you have sunlight coming out of you.

Mariah: See? That is exactly what I was saying. I’m, like, happy — deliriously happy. And I don’t know what it is about this marriage thing, maybe it’s turning me into a sap.

Devon: No, that’s impossible.

Mariah: Well, since we are being sentimental, I just wanted to say thank you. Because I wouldn’t be here without you. I wouldn’t be with tessa without you, and I wouldn’t feel this happiness. Damn it, I think I’m gonna cry again.

Devon: It’s okay. You can cry. Come here.

[ Chuckles ] When my blonde is luminous, i feel luminous.

will continue.

Jack: Hello.

Chance: Hey!

Abby: Allie.

Allie: Hello.

Abby: Hi. You’re here.

Allie: I am.

Abby: I’m glad. I love your dress.

Allie: Oh, thank you. I had help.

Abby: Well, whoever helped you has great taste.

Allie: Summer.

Abby: Of course.

Jack: Well, I wanted to introduce her to chance.

Chance: Well, we actually got to meet briefly earlier today. Yeah, sorry we were in such a rush, I didn’t get the opportunity to properly welcome you to genoa city. So welcome.

Allie: Thanks, chance.

Jack: I think the ladies of the hour are free. If you’ll excuse us, please.

Amanda: So…

Phyllis: Hey.

Amanda: I didn’t expect to see you here.

Phyllis: Jack invited me.

Amanda: Mm-hmm.

Phyllis: “Mm-hmm” — what does that mean?

Amanda: [ Scoffs ] It means that every time I talk to you, you say that you two are just friends, but I don’t know, I don’t think that a friend invites their buddy to a wedding.

Phyllis: He invited me because he knew summer was gonna be here.

Amanda: Uh-huh. Okay, if you say so. If you say so.

Jack: Mariah, tessa, I’d love for you to meet my granddaughter allie.

Allie: So lovely meeting you guys. Congratulations.

Tessa: Thank you.

Mariah: Kyle has told us so much about you. So welcome to our wedding.

[ Chuckles ]

Allie: I hope it’s alright that I’m here.

Tessa: Oh, of course, we’re glad to have you.

Mariah: Any granddaughter of jack’s is a friend of ours.

Allie: You know, summer did say you would feel that way.

Mariah: Oh, well, summer is a lot to take, but I have to admit it, she and kyle are perfect together.

[ Chuckles ]

Tessa: Well, I can relate.

Mariah: Oh.

Nick: Oh, it’s so good to see you, supergirl.

Summer: Oh, I miss this hug.

Faith: Me next, me next!

Summer: [ Laughs ] Hey, faith. It feels like it’s been forever.

Faith: I missed you so much. Did you bring me back any clothes? I want to know all about your job. Is it hard? How’s your italian?

Nick: Okay, okay, summer just got here. You can grill her later. These two have a lot to catch up on, so you’re with me. Come on. Have fun.

Kyle: Mm.

Summer: You look tired.

Kyle: I haven’t been sleeping well. I wanted you here with me and to tell you about everything, and not just video chat or on the phone. I need you here with me.

Summer: I’m here. I wish I had come with you and harrison when you first left.

Kyle: Yeah, me too, but we had no idea what was in store for me. After we leave here, we’ll go back to the house and sit down and I’ll tell you everything about what’s been going on.

Summer: [ Chuckles ] Good. I am all yours.

Meet ron.

Jack: Hey, there.

Phyllis: Hey! Hi. Where’s allie?

Jack: She’s over talking to tessa. Apparently, she’s a big fan of tessa’s music.

Phyllis: Oh, wow, that’s great.

Jack: It’s just been lovely. Not just a romantic wedding, but it’s been a welcome respite from all the crises in our lives.

Phyllis: Yeah, that’s true, that’s true.

Jack: Didn’t actually know i needed a break.

Phyllis: Oh. Me neither.

Jack: Just one night without thinking about diane. Is that too much to ask?

Phyllis: It is not too much to a– let’s dance. You want to dance with me? Let’s dance.

Jack: Um…

Phyllis: Let’s go.

Jack: Okay.

Noah: I’ve only been back in town a couple months myself.

Crystal: So how was london?

Noah: Parts of it were good. Other parts of it were a little rough.

Abby: Crystal, hey!

Crystal: Abby, how are you?

Abby: I haven’t had a chance to say hi to you yet. I’m just so happy to see you.

Tessa: Same.

Abby: I just heard what rey did, and I shouldn’t be surprised because, well, he was such a good guy. But I’m so happy that he had all the charges against you dropped. It was a terrible situation, and I can’t imagine what you’ve been through the past few years.

Crystal: It’s all behind me now. I’m focused on the future, and I haven’t felt this good in a really long time.

Abby: I’m so glad to hear that. And, please, if you need anything, anything at all, while you’re in town, let me know. I’m happy to help.

Crystal: That’s so sweet. I really appreciate it. Everyone’s been so nice.

Noah: I think we’re all just relieved to see you doing so well.

Crystal: Thank you. And I heard from tessa that you’re doing really well, too — a husband and a baby.

Abby: It’s true. I have never been happier.

Chance: Congratulations, mother of the bride.

Sharon: Oh, thanks, chance.

Chance: This is — it’s very beautiful. Must be proud.

Sharon: I’m overwhelmed with joy.

Chance: And yet I’ve seen you standing here by yourself for most of the night.

Sharon: Yeah.

Chance: Thinking about rey?

Sharon: Someone told me that he’s here with us, probably on the dance floor.

Chance: I’ll tell you, he’s out there, and he is tearing up that dance floor. I am sure of it. But you need to go celebrate yourself. You know, have some fun, enjoy it. You should be dancing, too.

Phyllis: Glad you’re happy. Keep that. I need to tell you something.

Jack: Okay, tell me. Tell me.

Phyllis: Don’t worry about it. I have it under control. Diane is here.

Jack: What?

Phyllis: Yeah. She’s here. That was my initial reaction. Don’t worry, I got it. I just didn’t want to rush her, ’cause I didn’t want to ruin tessa and mariah’s evening.

Jack: I cannot believe she — what am I saying? Of course I can believe it. It’s diane. What, she wants to let the whole world know that she’s alive?

Phyllis: I don’t think she’s gonna do that. She would’ve already done it by now. I think she just wants to watch kyle.

Jack: She better not make a scene here.

Phyllis: Oh, she’s not going to, trust me. I have it under control.

Summer: Congratulations!

Mariah: Summer! Do you really mean that?

Summer: I do. I believe that everyone deserves a chance at love and happiness, even you, mariah. Hey, tessa, congratulations.

Tessa: Oh, thank you, summer. Thank you for coming.

Mariah: Oh, no, I do–

[ Chuckles ] I don’t want to wrinkle my dress.

Summer: So I was just going to say that you two look terrific. Those dresses are perfect. So much nicer than what you usually wear.

Mariah: And there it is. There it is. You’ll never change.

[ Chuckles ]

Summer: I was — I was joking. I actually have changed a lot. Motherhood and marriage will do that to you. My perspective has shifted, and I’m really, really happy. I know you’ll experience the same thing when you start a family. It’s going to be awesome, and you deserve it.

Mariah: Mm-hmm. And?

Summer: And…nothing.

Mariah: There’s no little jab or clever little put-down.

Summer: No. I mean it. I wish you and tessa nothing but happiness.

Tessa: Just say “thank you, summer.”

Kyle: You can do it.

Mariah: Thank you, summer.

Kyle: [ Chuckles ] See? Was that so hard?

Mariah: Yes, it was excruciating.

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Kyle: Uh…excuse me. I need to go take care of something. What are you doing here?

Diane: I came to see you.

Kyle: No, first you show up at the house unannounced, and now you’re here. What are you up to? You love rich, delicious ice cream.

Diane: I’m not up to anything. I came here to watch you officiate the wedding. It was such a kind and generous thing to do.

Kyle: You know, I could’ve told you all about it after the fact. You didn’t need to show up here. And the ceremony’s been over for a while, so what are you still doing here?

Diane: [ Scoffs ] It’s not like I’m going to make a grand announcement or anything that I’ve returned.

Kyle: Okay, that’s not the point. I don’t want this event to suddenly become about you instead of the happy couple. And if someone sees you, that could happen. So I’d appreciate it if you left.

Diane: Okay, okay. But I’d just like to do one thing first before I go. Could I just say hello to summer?

Kyle: Now?

Diane: It’s been years.

Kyle: I think you can wait.

Diane: She’s your wife, my daughter-in-law. Please, kyle. It would mean so much to me.

Kevin: May I have your attention? It is now time for toasts. Please grab a drink and join me as we salute our favorite couple.

[ Whooping, cheering ] Today has been so great. The ceremony was 100% mariah and tessa. It was fun, colorful, full of love. It completely captured the essence of this couple that we all admire and adore.

[ Cheering ] I know that it has been a long road for the two of you to get here. There were twists, turns, bumps along the way. But I am so happy that you made it. Everyone here is, and you can feel it. Everyone in this room is out of their minds crazy about the two of you.

[ Cheering ] I mean, listen to that. Traditionally, there is not a lot of whooping and hollering at weddings. But your exuberance is so infectious. You make us all want to be joyful, happy, in love. We have all been rooting for you two for years.

[ Shouts of agreement ] So the theme of the day is “love conquers all.” And you two have conquered every obstacle that has come your way. Your happiness is our happiness. Your joy is our joy.

[ Sighs ] And your love is our love. To mariah and tessa!

[ Cheering ]

Mariah: Oh. Okay. [ Laughs ] Thank you. Kevin, thank you.

Tessa: We just wanted to say thank you all for coming today.

Mariah: Yeah, even summer.

[ Laughter ]

Tessa: We can’t tell you how much it means to us that you are all here to celebrate with us.

Mariah: I think the celebration has been a little tame…

Tessa: Mm.

Mariah: …Up until now. Don’t you think?

Tessa: Yeah, mm-hmm, mm-hmm. Well, we exchanged vows and rings.

Mariah: Yeah, we did the traditional first dance. And then we mingled politely.

Tessa: And then kevin gave his speech that made mariah weepy again.

Mariah: It did. It did do that, yes. That’s true.

[ Laughs ]

Tessa: So now it’s time for the real party to begin.

Mariah: Yeah. Hey, noah, hit it.

[ ’70s music plays ]

[ Cheering ] Okay, everybody, get your butts on the dance floor!

[ Cheering ]

Never look down you’re flying too high when you need the ground when you wave goodbye just forget about all the rest they’re much too afraid to try but you know you’re the very best livin’ a wild life wild life livin’ a wild life a wild life
