A beautiful day in Equestria.
Picnic in the park.
Rarity complementing the weather.
"It is gorgeous out!"
Twilight and her friends enjoying a lovely picnic.
Leaps and Bounds
Nothing can stop Spike from delivering his message!
Sandwich could use a dash of pepper.
And what are [picnics] without [apples]
I'm going in for the [bite]
"...do you see that?"
Spike arrives with urgent, yet exciting news.
Take a deep breath Spike.
Just give me a second.
Spike about to cough up a letter.
A message from the Princess
Twilight reading the letter.
It's about the Royal wedding
Fluttershy is happy her bird choir will preform at the wedding
"To host the reception."
Pinkie excited she gets to plan the reception
Yippie skippy, I'm a flake! Watch me step into the cake!
Pinkie's been taking lessons from Fluttershy...
"Applejack, you'll be in charge of the catering for the reception."
AJ pleased she gets to make the food
Rainbow Dash couldn't care less
Aw yeah! One explosion of awesome coming right up!
Even more planning
I get to, make dresses for the wedding!?
I think I'm gonna lie down.
Rarity derps out. :P
She's losing consciousness
I'm so happy, I'm about to faint!
Oh my...are you alright?
Guess it was too much for Rarity.
Spike, you look worried.
But, who's getting married?
"But I don't understand."
Oh wait, I have another letter.
Spike, with the letter he was supposed to give Twilight first.
Some things never change.
Twilight reading the letter, that Princess Celestia sent.
Super gasp with super funny expression.
Something to gasp about.
My brother's getting MARRIED!?
Yep, she's still in shock.
Congrats Twilight...you're now sister in-law with a princess.
Doesn't Rainbow Dash look cute.
Is Twilight being serious?
"Thanks a lot, Shining Armor."
"I mean, really!?"
"He couldn't tell me personally?!"
Everypony looks confused.
Twilight and her sandwich puppet
Shining Crust is best Sandwich
Everypony looking a little concerned.
A name of mystery warrants awkward outlooks.
Twilight Sparkle's face of skepticism.
Somepony is angry.
"Uh Twilight, are you okay?"
He was the only pony I ever accepted...
And...break into musical number.
Always reading, even as a kid.
Way too focused!
Isn't that the cutest face you have ever seen?
Young Shining Armor
Shining Armor! Glad you're here! Why does my book have no words???
This is not a family with rhythm.
Twilight and Shining Armor.
He taught me how to fly a kite (Best friend forever)
Sharing is caring!
Picking up the book.
"I miss him more than I realized, it seems..."
"Your big brother, best friend forever. Like two peas in a pod you did everything together!"
Point for Twilight
I guess she really did miss him...
"Be Captain of the Royal guard."
Twilight said her brother is what!
"So let me get this straight."
Twilight knows she'll be needing something.
Rarity + Pillow = Twilight being dismayed.
Twilight is jealous because Rarity can faint better than her.
How often does she faint that everypony just goes about their business?
"A sonic rainboom?..."
"At a wedding?!"
"Can you say 'best wedding ever'?"
BEST WEDDING EVER!!!!!
Heading to Canterlot.
"I just have one question. What's a bachelor party?"
Smiling at Spike's question.
Twilight's friends laughing at Spike's question...
...but not Twilight herself.
"I'm just thinking about Shining Armor."
"When did he even meet this Princess Mi Amore Ca-what's her name!?
"Come on, now. You're his sister. He'll always make time for you."
"Couldn't seem to make time to tell me that he was getting married."
'Ohh,look,a magic bubble! Think I can pop it?
Force field passing through the train.
Rarity and Rainbow Dash amazed at passing through a force field.
Too upset to notice the force field.
Why does he have to make them so cold?
Twilight after passing through the force field. Speechless, wouldn't you say.
The very first Earth Pony Guard
"Royal weddings do bring out the strangest ponies."
She's about to sneeze.
Now how did she sneeze confetti? Whatever, it's Pinkie Pie.
Walking out like nothing happened.
Gray unicorn guard wondering- "She didn't notice me..."
Twilight's jealousy is worrying
Nothing to report, sir. We'll continue with our patrols.
Shining Armor is ecstatic to see his sister.
Don't even think about touching me.
"How dare you! Not telling me in person that you were getting married!"
"I'm your sister!"
"For pony's sake!"
"It's not my fault."
"Princess Celestia has requested a major increase in security."
Twilight slowly accepting the news.
"This you need to see."
The toll of maintaining a force field is whacked out facial expressions.
Twilight looks pretty baffled.
Is he asleep on the job?
"I'll be honored to."
"But I'm still pretty ticked."
"That you're marrying somepony I don't even know."
"When did you even meet."
"Princess Mi Amore Cadenza is Cadance."
"As in the Cadance?!"
"You tell me..."
Twilight's room as a filly
Give me a hug.
Princess Cadance placing a bandage on Twilight's cut.
Princess Cadance is kind.
"I'm the one who's lucky, Twilight!"
Young Twilight with Princess Cadance.
"And do a little shake!"
Aww how adorable.
Lucky and Wild Fire arguing
Get Along Beam!
All you need is love!
This is Wild Fire, an original character of storyboard artist Sabrina Alberghetti, as stated on her deviantArt
. (Sabrina was one of four storyboarders on "A Canterlot Wedding".)
Oh yeah, that's how you spread love.
Adorable. Wouldn't you say.
Twilight hippity hop after learning Shining Armor is marrying Cadance.
Why so serious, Twilight?
A lot of delicious icing on the wedding cake.
Ice sculpted in 10 seconds flat
You used the pick with your mouth and you're now holding it with your hoof. Come on.
"Taste the fritters!"
"I do, do you?"
Put those down, young drake
Twilight hears Applejack greet Princess Mi Amore Cadenza.
"Please, call me Princess Mi Amore Cadenza."
Frankly, Twilight just doesn't gi...eer care.
Twilight is watching.
Princess Cadance giving Applejack a very sincere smile.
Trying out the food.
"I love love them!" Yeah...I find that hard to believe.
Twilight knows when fake is happening.
Did she just throw that away?
What is this confound look on Twilight's face.
"Did... you see what she...?"
"Oh, you should have seen how she acted back there"
"I don't know when she changed, but she changed!"
Twilight imitating Cadance.
Speak of the devil pony...
...and she shall appear.
"Let me just start by saying what an honor it is to play a role in such a momentous occasion."
Cadance looking at her dress. Will she be pleased by it?
Rarity is all smiles. While Princess Cadance is... smiling on the inside.
"I was hoping for something with more beading and a longer train."
Rarity maintaining her cool.
Come on Cadance! Usually Brides maid dresses don't look half as good as those
"I think they're lovely."
"I love them ^_^"
Her glare is worse than the bat glare.
Princess Cadance wants the dresses to be a different color.
Rarity only takes quick notice of Twilight's words.
Maybe her name should be Princess Demandy-pants.
The reception is gonna be great
Exactly why am I here?
Plan a party with Pinkie Pie...
Another pony who won't take Pinkie serious.
"I think this reception is gonna be perfect! Don't you?"
...if we were celebrating a six-year-old's birthday party!"
What are you doing there, Twilight?
The princesses changing shifts
"That goes on the cake!"
"Twilight, whatever are you talking about?"
"Cadance is an absolute gem."
"Well of course she is."
"Why shouldn't she expect..."
"the very best on her wedding day!"
"She was so demanding!"
"Well, she did raise her voice at one of my birds during rehearsal."
Yeah I'm right!
"But... he was singing really off-key."
She's right, he was off-key.
Am I really seeing this!
Pinkie is too busy playing with the figurines with Spike to talk about Cadance's attitude.
For once Pinkie I was about to take you seriously.
"You're with me right?"
"Been too busy prepping for my sonic rainboom to pay much attention to the bride's bad attitude."
Twilight is about to blow her fuse.
"The princess is about to get married!"
"I'm sure any negative behavior she might be displaying."
"Is simply the result of nerves."
Excuse me Rarity.
Twilight is not pleased.
"Think maybe you're bein' just a tiny bit possessive of your brother?"
"I am not being possessive,..."
"...and I am not taking..."
"...it out on Cadance!"
"You're all just too caught up in your wedding..."
"...planning to notice that maybe there shouldn't even..."
"...be a wedding!"
Man, she is so angry.
Oh, there she is.
"She sure has a way to sneak up on people." (I think you mean "ponies", not "people".)
"Could I speak to you for a moment?"
"Better go see what she wants."
Now what are they doing in there?
Or should I not.
I'm just going to snoop since most problems are solved that way anyway.
It wouldn't be wrong for me to take a peek.
"This is my favorite uncle's."
They are just having a private talk.
"I guess, I am!"
Attack of the migraine.
What's wrong, Shining Armor?
Making an angry face.
Cadance putting a spell on Shining Armor, meaning that Cadance is evil, or so Twilight thought.
"She's downright evil!"
"Let her go."
Princess Cadance being affectionate while Shining Armor ponders about Twilight.
Cadance satisfied because Twilight left.
Princess Luna on the lookout.
Something alerts Princess Luna.
"Who goes there! Stay indoors, Twilight Sparkle."
"Shining Armor's in real trouble!"
What the heck am I seeing!?
All dressed up in new bridesmaids gowns
A typical Twilight reaction.
Fluttershy greets Twilight at the door
"We're gonna be Princess Mi Amore Cadenza's new bridesmaids!"
"What happened to her old bridesmaids?!"
"She did tell us that she love love love if we fill in for them."
"Seeing as we've been working so hard and everything."
"And you had your doubts about her."
Twilight looks funny.
Twilight may be going crazy now.
"Doesn't seem all that aereodynamic."
"I'll see what I can do"
Rarity taking Rainbow Dash to her work spot to make some adjustments.
Pinkie is best bridesmaid.
Applejack is lying about something.
The practice ceremony begins.
The proud bridesmaids
Rarity and Rainbow Dash about to giggle.
Bubbling with excitement
No, we were not acting like little fillies!
The Guards Ponies don't match....
Here comes Cadance
Shining Armor happy to see Cadance.
Cadance walking down the aisle.
Princess Cadance and Shining Armor being affectionate.
Hey wheres Twilight?
Hey han everyone seen Twilight?
There she is!
"I'm not gonna stand next to her. And neither should you!"
Shining-Armor does not look too comfortable.
"I'm sorry, I don't, I don't know why she's acting like this."
"Maybe we should just ignore her."
"Oh goodness, are you okay?"
"You sure about that?"
Get out of my face Applejack.
What is she gonna do?
No, not you Shining Armor.
Even Pinkie is shocked.
She's behind me isn't she.
Twilight accusing Cadance.
She's on to me!
Twilight has Princess Cadance cornered.
"I saw her put a spell on my brother that made his eyes go all.."
Cadance blushing out of embarrassment .
I have you now.
She literally has Cadance cornered
"Why are you doing this to me!"
"Because you're evil!"
Rarity and Rainbow Dash... well their faces speak for them.
Rainbow Dash and Rarity, gasping.
Twilight feels proud with herself.
She looks a lot younger from this angle
Twilight, I am disappointed.
He is having the headaches again.
Twilight may feel guilt coming on.
Yeah I find it hard to believe you.
Are you going to let me speak!
What expression is this?
Epic stare off.
Let me help you.
"Don't bother coming to the wedding!"
Reality is sinking in.
What have I done.
Twilight's friends are leaving Twilight after her accusations.
Even Celestia is angry.
Twilight in tears.
"Maybe I was being overprotective."
"I could have gained a sister..."
"But instead... I just lost a brother..."
"He was my..."
"...big brother best friend..."
Goodbye, Shining Armor.
"And now we'll never do anything..."
Crushing her moment. T_T
Wait, her eyes are green!
"You will be!"
Oh this is so not good.
Definitely not good!
Cadance using her magic to surround Twilight.
What's worse than green fire and a mare with an evil smile?
What a twist.
Cadance knows you need contacts, glasses, or laser eye surgery.
