Summary: Templeton Peck and Chely Lynn Duke are getting married at her family's farm in Hazard County, GA.
Copyright: August, 2009
The nervous bride to be looks out of the window, into the yard and sees the people assembling there for HER wedding. She picks up the piece of paper that has her feeling on it and looks at it. She then looks at picture of her and her soon to be husband. "I just hope I can be a good wife to you." Chely Lynn Duke says as she traces her fingers over his lovely smile.
In the other bedroom, the equally anxious groom to be is pacing around the room, nervously running his hands through his golden hair. He glances out of the window to see the people arrive for HIS wedding to the woman of his dreams. He looks at the piece of paper that has his feelings for her. "I just hope I can be a good husband to you." Templeton Peck says as he smiles to himself thinking of his beautiful soon to be wife.
The people are congregating in the spacious front yard. Friends and family are talking and laughing.
A knock is heard on Chely's door. She runs to it. She barely cracks the door. Daisy Duke-Strait leans into the crack of the door and smiles. Chely opens the door as her cousin walks in. "What would you have done if I had been Face?" she asks walking into the room. "Probably have smiled and shut the door." Chely says slipping into her shoes. Daisy closes the door behind them. She notices her cousin's nervous state.
"What's wrong?" she asks. Chely looks out of the window and takes a deep breath. "Were you scared before you and Enos got married? She asks. Daisy walks over to Chely. She places a hand on her shoulder. "More than you think." Daisy says. Chely turns around to face her cousin. "I love Tem and I know that he loves me. But I'm scared." Chely walks to the bed. "Scared of what?" Daisy asks. "I'm scared that I won't measure up to the wife that Face wants me to be to him."
Daisy sits on the bed by Chely. "Chely, I'm going to ask you a question and I want an honest answer from you." "Okay." "Do you love Templeton?" "Yes! I love that man more than anything." Chely says looking in Daisy's eyes. "That's all you need. As long as you two love each other, you guys can face ANY obstacle that comes up."
In the other room, Templeton Peck is running around the room looking for his shoes and jacket. His colonel, Chely's biological father, Hannibal Smith knocks on the door. "Come in!" he yells from the floor. Hannibal walks in and sees his lieutenant on the floor looking under the bed. "Loose something, lieutenant?" he asks grinning. Face looks up at his Colonel. "My shoes and jacket!!" he says.
The Colonel produces his lieutenant's shoes. "And I here I was thinking you had lost your mind!" Hannibal Smith says laughing as he slaps his second in command's shoulders. Face nervously runs his hands through his hair. "At first, I thought I had become just as crazy as Murdock!" Face says laughing. "But then I realized that I'm in love with the woman of MY dreams. This might sound corny coming from me, Hannibal."
"No, Face. You don't sound corny. You're a man in love with a beautiful, smart woman. When Chely looks at you, we all can see the love she has for you in return." Hannibal says as he rests a hand on his second in command's shoulder. Face turns and looks at his commanding officer, father figure and friend all wrapped in one package. "Colonel, you have been like a father figure to me since I first came into your command. I feel like I'm leaving the only family I have ever known."
Tears well in the older man's blue eyes. "I feel the same way kid. Instead of losing one child, I feel like I'm losing two. Face, you've always had a special place in my heart as if you, BA and Murdock were all my sons. I know that you and Chely will be happy together. If you stop and think about this, the two of you fit together as if you two were two peas from the same pod." Face smiles as he runs his fingers through his hair. He slides into his jacket and adjusts his tie.
Walking to the door, Hannibal Smith turns around and looks back Face. "And besides, Chely is the only woman that I know who can put with you!" he says laughing walking out of the room. Face follows his commander laughing. "And I wonder where she gets that from!" he says as they walk outside into the spacious yard. BA and Murdock walk behind the two men as they take their places. Chely walks over to the window and sees her soon to be husband and his friends/family standing beside him.
Another knock interrupts Chely and her racing thoughts. "Come in!" the nervous bride to be answers. Bo, Luke and Jesse Duke enter into the room. Jesse clears his throat as he looks at his two nieces. "Chely, you and Daisy look simply beautiful." Daisy and Chely look at their uncle. Chely's eyes well with tears. She walks over to her uncle and hugs him. "Please don't make me cry Uncle Jesse. I don't think Face would want to marry me if I have raccoon eyes." Chely says battling back tears.
"Face would be a fool not to marry a beautiful woman like yourself." Bo Duke says to Chely. The sound of violin music is being played. Daisy places Chely's veil on her head. "I guess it's time!" Chely says gathering her flowers in her hand. Enos opens the door. "Girls, it's time!" he says. Daisy smiles at her husband. Bo and Luke each hugs Chely and kisses her cheek. Daisy and Enos walk out first. Bo and Luke leave after Daisy and Enos to locate their dates. Jesse and Chely are left alone in the room. Chely looks into Jesse's eyes and smiles. Tears threatening to spill out at any time.
They walk out of the room and out of the house. When they get to the porch, Jesse whispers into Chely's ear, "I love you, Chely Lynn." Chely looks into her uncle sad, but happy blue eyes. "You haven't called me Chely Lynn since I was little." Jesse Duke winks his eye at her.
Jesse and Chely walk down the steps. As the follow the trail of rose petals, Chely and Face lock eyes with each other. Face gives her his special wink. She smiles at him. ‘Face is so handsome, strong, charming and he's going to be MY husband! I'm so lucky to have him in my life.' Chely says to herself. At the altar, Face can feel the strong hand of his colonel on his shoulder. ‘What did I do to deserve such a warm, beautiful creature like Chely?' Face asks himself.
Jesse says to himself, ‘I'm so happy that my little girl has found somebody that will love her for the rest of her life.' He feels Chely tighten her hold on his arm just a little. He lightly pats her hand and smiles. Once at the altar, Chely steps up towards Face and turns to face her uncle. He raises her veil and kisses her cheek. He turns and gives Chely's hand to her husband. Jesse sits down by Luke and his date.
"Boss" Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane smiles as Chely takes the other two steps and joins Face before him. Daisy steps up and takes Chely's flowers. Chely and Face hold each other's hands. "Friends, family and loved ones, we're gathered here today to witness Chely Lynn Duke and Templeton Arthur Peck make a life-long commitment to each other." Roscoe looks at Chely and Face. "There's no backing out now, for either one." Says Boss Roscoe. Everyone gathered into the yard laughs.
"I would have to be criminally insane to run away from this beautiful woman." Face says looking into Chely's eyes. Boss Roscoe smiles. "You couldn't get me away from this wonderful man even if you offered me an insane amount of money." Chely says looking into Face's eyes. "The bride and groom have written their own vows. Templeton, your vows first." Face takes a deep breath as he turns to face Chely. His hands are shaking as she holds his hands tighter in her own.
"Dearest Chely, when we first met I asked myself this question. How long has it been and how long will you wait before you let someone take your breath away again? From the first day that we met, I fell helplessly and hopelessly for you. I promise to love, honor and cherish you for all the days of our lives together. Please accept this ring as a token of my never ending love for it has no beginning and no end." Face says swallowing his tears back as he slides the ring on Chely's finger.
Tears silently fall down Chely's face. "Chely, your vows, honey." Roscoe says. Chely takes a deep breath and exhales it. She holds onto Face's hands. Looking into his blue eyes, Chely smiles.
"I was lost, too scared to stand still or run until you and I met, my darling Face. With each day that passes, I find myself falling more in love you than I was the day before. I can't promise that we won't have fights but I can promise that I will love, honor and cherish you for all of the days of our lives together. Please accept this ring as a token of my undying love for you for my love has no beginning and no end."
Chely slides the ring on Face's finger. Tears pool in her eyes and Face's eyes. For a split second, they are lost in each other's eyes and are the only two people there. Both are brought back to the present by Boss Roscoe blowing his nose. Everyone in the wedding party giggles lightly. "Are you okay Roscoe?" Chely asks. "That was beautiful." Roscoe looks at the couple and for a moment wishes that he and Chely were the ones getting married.
Roscoe asks the crowd "Is there anyone here who shows just cause why these two people should not be married? Speak no or forever hold you're peace." Bo and Luke turn around along with Hannibal, BA and Murdock.
"Templeton, do you take this woman to be your lawfully wedded wife, from this day forward, through sickness and health, for richer or poorer, until you're dying day?" Roscoe asks. Face locks eyes with Chely as he says the two words that he has wanted to say for his entire adult life. "I do." A tear falls from his eyes. Roscoe looks at Chely and smiles. "Chely, do you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband, from this day forward, through sickness and health, for richer or poorer, until you're dying day?"
Chely locks eyes with Face as she tightens her grip on his hands. "I do." Boss Roscoe takes their hands into his own. "Then by the power vested in me by the State of Georgia, I pronounce you husband and wife." Face and Chely smile at each other. "You may kiss the bride." Roscoe says as he lets go of the couple's hands. Face slowly raises Chely veil. They move closer together. Templeton and Chely Duke-Peck tenderly kiss. Everyone claps. Boss Roscoe stands by Chely and Face and makes an announcement.
"Ladies and gentlemen, it's my pleasure to present to you, Mr. and Mrs. Templeton Peck." He says. Face and Chely tenderly kiss as they walk down the aisle back to the house for the reception. Everyone in the wedding party and their dates follow the lovely bride and handsome groom. As the sun sets, Templeton and Chely Peck share a romantic and tender kiss, cementing the love they have for each other forever and ever.
