[first lines]
Martha Rodgers: 297 wedding guests. It's a minor miracle, our final total is below 300.
Richard Castle: There. I am done. Five hundred autographed copies of "Wild Storm". My pre-wedding signing obligations are finished.
Alexis Castle: Good. Now sign this.
Richard Castle: What's this one?
Alexis Castle: Final payment for the rooftop venue.
Richard Castle: You mean the perfect venue. A 360-degree view of Manhattan. The stars above us, the world at our feet. It's too bad Beckett didn't want to bungee jump off the side of the building for our big exit. Now, that would have been...

everything about this particular episode is WRONG

ITA with the other reviews on how awful this episode was. i thought i had saved the episode to watch for when i needed a "favorite" show to enjoy!! needless to say this was NOT enjoyable on any level. as a matter of fact i needed everything i had to continue watching until the pathetic ending. normally i refuse to force myself to watch awful content. i hope i can remember to care enough to watch next season. at this point i don't even care if they marry each other as long as they continue to work together. to end up having the wedding in the hamptons after all the dumb drama about choosing a site ? although i will give a plus on the mention of the transportation of the "mostly flown in" guests by alexis. i wonder exactly who had kate's number to call her directly about her fiancé's tragic accident DURING her wedding instead of having someone break the news gently to her and why did all the people at the wedding who love them allow her to go to the scene alone!!! personally, if anybody thinks it's believable that the just arrested mobster put out a hit on rick from FBI custody, that it's the 3x killer, or bracken getting even by tracking them to the wedding--well i won't have that either. after all these years i need a whole lot more than just the joy i felt when that horribly ugly dress was destroyed!! this should have been an episode of love, humor, and romance for everybody in the cast.
