At the Royal Wedding, San Cristobel:

In Cassie's Room:
Reva is trying to make Cassie wake up. Selena is panicking and Blake says it is all her fault. Reva says that Blake should stall the guests until they can wake Cassie. Reva is trying to tell Cassie that all she has to do is keep her eyes open and get down the aisle. The man of her dreams is waiting for her. Cassie doesn't want to embarrass him in front of the country. Reva says that she is Sarah Shayne's daughter and cannot give up. Reva refuses to let her miss it. Cassie is still very sleepy and falls down in Reva's arms. Out in the hall, Julia asks Jenny and Blake where the bride is because they are behind schedule. Julia wants to know if something is wrong. Julia demands to know what is wrong but they tell her nothing and not to worry about it.

In the courtyard:
Outside, Harley comes down stairs and asks Phillip why he is there. He tells her he has to fill in for cousin George. Harley isn't happy but isn't going to make problems on Cassie's big day. Harley is worried because the bridesmaids aren't there. Phillip tells her not to worry that she is where she is supposed to be and they will be there soon.

Noah asks Richard if Cassie is ready and Richard tells him he has no idea and he is worried about her. Guests are piling in taking their seats. Michelle and Drew arrive and Michelle mentions that she and Danny had a major fight and he didn't come with her. Drew tells her that it will be fine and they should just try to enjoy the wedding. The trumpeters start playing and the ushers come in with Richard. Richard and Noah stay at the alter while Dax, Edmund and Phillip go down to the door. They are waiting on the bridesmaids. The Royal Nanny passes by Richard holding RJ. Richard kisses the baby on the forehead before they took their seat.

Selena comes in and takes a seat. Tammy walks down the aisle throwing her flower petals. Blake tells the others they have to stall for time so Reva can get Cassie up and ready. Dax takes Blake's hand and starts to walk her down the aisle. He begins to take a step and she pulls him back making him walk very slowly down the aisle. Richard notices her stalling and tells Noah he is afraid his bride is not going to make it to her own wedding.

Next, Edmund escorts Jenny down the aisle. He asks her about the blushing bride and she tells him it could easily be a disaster. Phillip and Harley walk down the aisle next. They make it and the trumpeters do their announcement call and everyone looks at the door. No Cassie. There is a delay. Richard is still waiting and looks a bit nervous. He tells Noah he thinks she is not coming and wonders what he should say to the guests. Just then Cassie appears in the doorway. Richard smiles. Cassie walks alone down the aisle as Reva sneaks in the back of the room wearing a big hat and glasses. At the altar, Richard kisses Cassie's hand and tells her he was afraid she wasn't going to make it. She tells him she wouldn't miss marrying him for anything. The bishop has a prayer blessing Richard and Cassie and their union. A group of acolytes come in with Cassie's tiara. Richard removes her veil and places it on her head. They go up and light the unity candle and kneel at the altar before the bishop. The bishop starts the ceremony and Richard stops the ceremony. He announces to the room that he wants to break tradition and tells Cassie what he feels for her. He says his heart is so full of love and he wants to say his own vows. He tells them his and Cassie's life was not scripted and he wants the vows to be personal. He tells Cassie that she always knows the true meaning of things and she has given his life meaning. He loves her with every ounce of his being and he will spend every day of his life cherishing her. Cassie takes her turn and tells him she tries to write down how she felt about him but no words could describe her feelings. She said she looks at him now and can't believe that she will finally be his wife. Richard smiles and the bishop takes the rings. They exchange rings, the bishop pronounces them man and wife, prince and princess and they kiss. Flower petals are strewn everywhere as they walk down the aisle.

Later, Cassie asks Richard if he had seen Reva. He says that he can only see her. They are about to kiss when Edmund congratulates them. Tammy comes over and says it all came true just like they said it would and calls Richard, Dad. Richard hugs and kisses her. Rusty comes over and kisses his sister and welcomes Richard into the family. Blake comes over and apologizes to Cassie for the pills. Danny finally arrives and kisses Michelle. She is happy to see him.

Outside, Susan finds Harley and asks her if she is okay about Phillip being there. Harley tells Susan that she shouldn't worry about her she will be fine. She tells her to go to Max and dance and have a great time. Phillip approaches her and says he was thinking about their wedding day. They made a promise that day. Harley reminds him he broke the promise. Phillip says they promised to stick it out together and he wants to try to work it out. Harley walks back into the festivities.

Noah brings Reva a glass of Champagne. Reva is happy to have been at the wedding but wants to leave before she is recognized. She turns around and is surrounded by photographers and reporters. She turns and tries to leave but the door is locked. She turns when she hears Cassie who had seen what they were doing to Reva. Cassie gets everyone's attention and tells them as her first official act as their princess she is going to make a toast. She says she wants to toast her sister, Reva. She said she loves her and thanks her for making today possible. She took the wind out of the reporter's sails. Everyone applauds as they hug.
Music starts playing and a formal court dance begins. Richard and Cassie are seated at their thrones watching. He turns to her and says, "This is the happiest day of my life, I love you." She tells him she loves him too. Everyone is dancing, Ross and Blake, Susan and Max, etc. Harley is left standing alone watching the couples. Phillip comes in and takes her arm and dances with her as well. After the court dance, Cassie and Richard dance for their first official dance.

Later, Cassie greets Michelle and Danny and tells them to enjoy each other. Then Cassie tells Richard that being in love makes her think the whole world is in love. Richard kisses her. Blake tells Ross about the pills and Cassie falling asleep.
Selena tells Drew the wedding was beautiful and makes her think about Drew getting married soon. Selena is going to miss her. Drew says they can visit each other. Drew says Selena and Buzz will get married first. Selena mentioned that Buzz proposed once. Drew says that she shouldn't wait to marry Buzz. Selena calls Buzz and asks if his proposal is still good. Michelle and Danny are kissing and apologizing to each other. He says they need to be together on their own right now. They need to get away from everything. He knows some people at the marina and wants to sail away for a second honeymoon. They leave.

The photographers are taking Cassie and Richard's pictures; Richard dismisses them. Cassie tells Julia she wants to toss her bouquet and Harley catches it. She hands it to Jenny and runs out of the courtyard. Marah is talking to Reva and Rusty. They are teasing her about her hat. Reva tells Noah she is relieved everything worked out.
