Alexis is worried something is going to happen, but Jax tells her not to worry. Carly looks at Jason and he tells her she can do this.

Jax tells Carly that she gave him strength and loyalty. She is a wonderful mother and he is proud to be a part of her life. He promises he will stand by her through everything and love her with all he has. Carly then takes her turn and recites a poem. She says those words never meant much until she met him. She feels safe with him, free to make mistakes, and knows that when they are together anything is possible. They exchange rings and are pronounced man and wife. They kiss, while Sonny watches, obviously uncomfortable.
After the wedding, Lady Jane and Bobbie discuss why the boys weren't in the wedding while members of the Quartermaine family discuss how a bet was made about Sonny breaking up the wedding.

At the reception, Alexis and Jason discuss who will announce Jax and Carly. Alexis ends up announcing them when they arrive and Jax and Carly share their first dance with Sonny watching. Emily knows Sonny is hurt and goes over to make sure he is ok. Lulu and Spinelli (along with Milo and Dillon) are also watching Jax and Carly dance. Spinelli daydreams about dancing with Lulu at their wedding, but it brought out of the daze when clapping starts. Edward comes over and tells Dillon that he should dance with Lulu. Lulu says she doesn't like to dance, but they end up dancing anyway. When they get done, Milo approaches her to dance as well. Spinelli goes to interrupt the dance, and another argument breaks out among the three suitors over who has danced the longest with Lulu. Sam and Alexis sit down together and talk about Sam's new show. Sam thinks she is good at hosting, but Alexis is worried about the contract. Sam changes the subject and tells her mother that she looks good and hopes she is feeling better. Alexis says she is feeling better and has been getting her energy and appetite back. Outside the reception, Robin and Patrick sneak a kiss. Robin knows they have to be careful, and they talk about how Alexis wanted to bring Mr. Craig.

Although she has to pretend to be in love with Nikolas, she kisses Patrick one more time. Back inside, Carly dances with the boys while Sonny watches. When Sonny gets up to leave, Jason eyes him but is cornered by Edward. Edward wants to know why Jason isn't dancing. Monica comes over to save him and tells Edward to leave Jason alone. Jason seems relieved to see Monica and takes her and Edward over to see the boys. They talk about how life is changing with Carly getting married, but Michael says he is happy for his mom. He says his mom looks beautiful, just like Monica.
When Carly leaves the reception area, she runs into Sonny. He tells her she has always made a beautiful bride. They share a tender moment when he says she will be happy with Jax and she tells him he will find someone, too. She tears up when he tells her he just wants her to be happy. She says she will always be grateful to him for letting go of her. Jax comes out and thanks Sonny for coming to the wedding. Sonny wishes them all the best and the two men shake hands. They go back inside and get ready to cut the cake and take some pictures. Carly pulls Max and Stan aside and asks them to keep an eye out on Sonny. She is worried about him. Carly goes back and throws the bouquet. Poor Lulu catches the bouquet, and her suitors jump up and down in excitement. They get ready to catch the garter and Spinelli says that whoever catches the garter gets to dance with Lulu. The garter is thrown and lands on Jason's table. Spinelli lucks out when Jason gives him the garter. Spinelli is speechless, but Jason is relieved (by the silence and the removal of the garter!).
Finally away from the wedding, Sonny makes a phone call and orders the best bottle of Scotch money can buy. Then he calls Eva and asks if she can come over. He wants to see her for a little while. As he's drinking, there's a knock at the door. When he answers it, Amelia is there. Meanwhile, Jax and Carly kiss but are interrupted by his phone ringing. Carly doesn't want him to take it, but he says he has to. It's Jerry. He asks how the wedding went, but Jax realizes he can hear the same music in the phone as what's playing where he's at. He asks him if he came to surprise him.
Jason approaches Liz and asks how she and the baby are doing. She says they are doing well, and they talk about how the due date is approaching. They depart and Jason goes to dance with Carly, even though he doesn't want to. Carly knows she can get him to dance with her, though and he does. She thanks him for being her best friend. Meanwhile, Liz watches the two of them dance and rubs her belly while Sam watches her.
Out at a gazebo, Nikolas approaches Emily and kisses her. He can't stand to be away from her. He wants to be with her, but Emily stops him and tells him they can't be together until Mr. Craig has been stopped.
