The boys were already down in the lobby greeting the guests who were arriving. Doctor Rubin, their principal, had just arrived. Alvin slid up next to her.
“Hey, Doctor Rubes,” he said. “Lookin’ good.” He winked at her, which made Doctor Rubin laugh.
“I hope Brittany didn’t see that,” Doctor Rubin said.
“Nah,” Alvin said. “She’s still upstairs primping.”
“In that case,” Doctor Rubin whispered in his ear. “I think you look handsome.”
“All right, Casanova,” Simon said, dragging Alvin back to reality.
More guests flooded into the church. Finally the minister showed up and all three chipmunks crowded around him.
“It’s about time you showed up,” Alvin said.
“Alvin!” Simon scolded and nudged him a bit. Simon led him to the side entrance. While Theodore volunteered to tell the girls they were ready to start.
He ran up the stairs as fast as his little chipmunks feet could carry him. He knocked on the door. “Yes,” he heard Eleanor’s voice through the door.
“Hi, Ellie,” Theodore said. “We’re ready if you are.”
“Okay, we’ll be right down,” Eleanor said.
Theodore shot back downstairs and relayed the message.
“Okay, everybody,” Alvin said, taking charge. “It’s showtime.”
First, the Chipettes came down the stairs. “Hey, boys,” Brittany said as she and her sisters approached the boys.
“Wow!” Alvin said to her. “I love the way you primp.”
Theodore took Eleanor’s hand and the music started to play. They walked slowly, one step at a time. They looked at each other several times as they walked down the isle together. Simon and Jeanette were next. Then Brittany and Alvin. As they took their places near the alter, Karen came down the isle with Willis Tanby, Dave’s best man. The couple walked slowly. Dave was at the alter. He looked happy and anxious at the same time.
Suddenly all the guests rose to their feet. The music changed. It was the traditional bridal march, but the bride was anything but traditional. She wear a long dress in an eggshell color with pink and lavender flowers printed on it. There was a circular cut at the collar almost showing cleavage. There was no long train in the back like traditional wedding gowns, which made it much easier to walk in. She walked slowly and elegantly, while carrying her bouquet of pink and lavender roses. She had a simple garland of flowers that served as a veil. She looked very much like a fairy princess in her gown and her brown hair long and flowing.
