I received this as a bonus read to my purchase to Jessica’s Rules the Dark Side but you can read it for free from the authors website.

I was a bit critical with my review to Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side considering that I did enjoy the story. However, the wedding of Jessica and Lucius was very fairy tale like… and was just what I had ex

Absolutely beautiful!!! What a wonderful way to wrap up what happened to Antanasia (Jessica) and Lucius. I absoulutely loved the detail that was put into this short story of their wedding. The vampire wedding traditions were very original and made me fall in love with the couple even more then when I read Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side. I will even dare to say that this wedding was better than Bella and Edward's in Twilight (I wasn't sure if anything could top that). Of course now th ...more

I want to ask you – in this place where we were promised to one another by mandate – to marry me not because doing so is required of you, but because you love me as I love you.I ask you to choose me of your own free will, because that is how I choose YOU, Antanasia. Not to fulfill a pact, but to follow my heart, which will settle for nothing less than a life with you by my side.

I liked this short story, but if it had been in the second book, even as a flash-back to just scenes of it, it might have seemed more pertinent to me. Especially (view spoiler). I loved seeing more of Antanasia's and Lucius' relationship.

Speaking of Antanasia/Jessica, her name really befuddles me. I keep wanting to call her Anastasia, and I'm sure I'm not alone in that. The two names are quite similar, and maybe i

This short novella can be read for free on Beth Fantasky's website.  You can read many of the behind the scenes clips and check out the voting that helped shaped the final story.  The wedding dress pictures are a must see.  The picture of the dress that Jessica wears is to die for!  This novella picks up shortly after the end of Jessica's Guide to Dating the Dark Side.  Jessica is busy planning for her big day.  She and Lucias are head over heels in love.  Finally, I grew to understand and like ...more

Amazing! Brilliant! Beautiful Wedding... It makes me laugh, cry, smile. The wedding ceremony is fantastic. The emotions are raw that you can feel it too. And the wedding gown is gorgeous too...

What I love the most? the PROPOSAL! OMG! It is so sweet, romantic, unique and special. I love, love this story! Do I need to say more???

Now!, Where is my own Lucius Vladescu??? I want him NOW!!!
Oh, I don't know.

Dammit, Beth Fantaskey. Why can I never figure out what I think of your work?

This story was cute but unnecessary. Soooo muuuuuch about hoooooow in looooooove they aaaaare and not enough of the characters I as a reader grew to love in Jessica's Guide. Jessica, who I really liked as a character in the novel, is defined by her relationship with Lucius in this short story. Her interactions with her parents and Mindy are nice, but she doesn't feel as much like a person as she did in

I loved that the author made this treat available to anyone who can’t get enough of Jessica and Lucius. I was sucked in with the first book and came across this series thanks so much to Book Whisperer who’s doing the tour of the latest book which I will be involved with later this month.

Jessica is still getting use to her new home and is planning her wedding to her love Lucius. Anyone who’s read the first book knows the two overcame alot to get to this point. I enjoy that it’s not your typical v

This was really great of Beth Fantaskey to do for her readers!
It was so sweet to give us some closure and peace of mind for Jessica's and Lucius's fate!
I was really hoping for a sequel, there is so much story left for these two, but The Wedding of Antanasia Jessica Packwood and Lucius Valeriu Vladescu was sincerely a nice touch!

Well done!

This is an awesome novella that shows the wedding between Lucias and Jessica. Fans will love this short romantic vision of their wedding. Jessica and Lucias share so many romantic moments that just crawl into the heart and make you swoon. I only wish I could download this to my nook or kindle. I absolutely can't wait for the sequel Jessica Rules the Dark Side.

A sweet and at the same time eyeroll-inducing story of the day before and the actual day of the wedding between Antanasia/Jessica and Lucious. Lots of sentimentality and detailed descriptions of feelings (most of which Antanasia could read in Lucious' eyes - enter eyeroll) and even more detailed descriptions of the actual ceremony.

I never did get the fascination the wedding day holds for most women. I get the sentimental value, but all the details and the need to have everything be perfect is ju

I pretty much ever girl wants to think about her wedding and how its going to be with the perfect man. Only one problem, this story shouldn't have been created at all. There is already a second book on the way, everyone knows they got married. Do we have to read it to see what's going on through the whole thing. I'm not saying that I don't like it, it's just that I don't think it was necessary.

The wedding was beautiful, loving, and all that and a bag of chips. But I don't know about others who r

What a wonderful little read. 22 small chapters with gorgeous dialogue.
I just loved this little addition to 'Jessica's Guide To Dating On The Dark Side' . Not to be missed, it's a wonderful little bridge of information before bk #2, 'Jessica's Guide To Ruling On The Dark Side'. Quite breath taking the wedding scenes.

Excellent work Beth Fantaskey!!!!! You may have made Lucius and Jessica the next big thing in

I enjoyed reading about the wedding of Jessica to Lucius. It gave me a bit of insight and background knowledge in to their relationship, and although I felt it was a bit mushy at times and unrealistic (although when is a vampire fantasy ever realistic?) I still felt it was a fun, light read.

I think it was smart however, for Beth Fantaskey to release it through her website, as it's not quite something you HAVE to read before reading her sequal to Jessica's Guide, but it is a nice little prelude t

I just love Lucius's castle !! And the weeding dress of Antanasia !! Book's great . well written . sure story is short and it's not a novel (like we know it's a bridge b/w 1 and 2 book in the series ) just to describe Lucius and Antanasia's weeding which btw is really awesome . A vampire mirage and it's tradition as described in this book is really different.Sure Marking your hands so that your blood can mix with your spouse's blood is pretty tacky but Hello they are vampires (so a little tacky ...more

Read this after I read Jessica Rules the Dark Side, which probably didn't help how I felt about some of the characters. (It was at the end of the ebook)
I will say this in the book I previously mentioned I was curious about how Mindy and Jessica became friends once more and what the wedding actually entailed so I was happy to get those answers. But for a 20 chapter book (1/5 of Jessica Rules the Dark Side and 1/3 of Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side sizes) it felt too long... and it lack

I was very please with this Novella, it was a nice moment for all. The minor problem I had with it was Jessica/ Anastasia and Mindy. I feel like they still needed to has some things out. In kindle books I wish they had a sketch of the dresses I am not very good at seeing them in my head. I just want a better perspective of Jessica/Anastasia's wedding gown.

Really good

This was a good 1.5, but I feel like it could have been a 2 with part of Jessica’s Guide to Dating the Dark Side in it. Just a thought.

I also enjoyed getting to “see” old characters again.

This is my first book in the Jessica series. Well, it's sweet, fun and succinctly short, thus a very easy read. Well, the book is somewhat... uneventful. But that's not too unexpected because the book is supposed to be about a wedding. Just about a wedding. And what do you know, the weeding is really cute.

Some of the vampire traditions conjured up by the author are creative and lovely, like the sharing of each other's blood and married vampire couples only being allowed to drink each other's bl

I wish this book was included in the second Jessica's Guide because it's been a while since I've read those books...but anyway, I really liked this. It's kind of annoying to read a book online but the pictures added to it and they wouldn't be there in the printed edition. Many people experience jealousy when they read about the great lives and loves of people in books, but I'm not like that for two reasons: 1. I feel like I AM living the life of a character in a book (Li-En from Zatch Bell) beca ...more

Jessica has finally come to accept the vampire she was born to be and has changed her name back to Antanasia. Check out The Wedding – a great free read Beth Fantaskey has provided to all her fans of the Jessica Series!

In The Wedding, we get to see all the behind the scenes action and events leading up to the wedding between Antanasia and Lucius. You definitely don’t want to be left out!

Though I’m really enjoying this series, the only drawback I’m getting is I’m not too happy about Antanasia’s co

Note: If you have not read Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side, this might contain slight spoilers, but nothing that would ruin the story.

This was a really cute Novella. I think that Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side had a great ending and this novella was a nice touch. It was fun to have an insight to the wedding. The book was very romantic and moving. I really loved the ceremony in The Wedding, it was personal and beautiful. I don’t know if I could be like Jessica and let my h

- Lucius Valeriu Valdescu”
“I’d been unable to stop questioning if I knew what I was doing, even just kissing, and I’d sort of sheepishly apologized for my inexperience. Lucius had drawn back, a strange look in his eyes and a half smile on his lips as he’d said, 'I don’t think I could allow another man who’d touched you to continue walking this earth. The only reason Zinn survives is the debt that I owe him.' He’d smiled a little more broadly, joking, 'Your inexperience saves lives, Antanasia.” 24 likes
