79% of the votes - Luke and Laura (Anthony Geary and Genie Francis): It’s no surprise that the Luke and Laura wedding — which drew an audience of over 30 million — reigns supreme among GH fans. The November nuptials brought the duo’s storied (and at times inglorious) courtship to a dramatic and romantic climax, as the freshly-divorced-from-Scott bride exchanged vows with her groom at the mayor’s mansion, which was shot on location at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, CA. Before friends, family and a wedding party that included Robert, Bobbie and Tiffany, the couple said, “I do” in a traditional ceremony — while uninvited guest Helena Cassadine, played by Elizabeth Taylor, glowered from afar and placed a curse on them. A merry buffet and reception followed the service, and the newlyweds changed clothes and stood on the balcony to toss the garter and bouquet. When the floral arrangement was snatched by a back-in-town Scotty, a brawl ensued between Laura’s hubbies. After Luke knocked him out, the Spencers exited for their honeymoon in Beechers Corners.
8% of the votes - Frisco and Felicia (Jack Wagner and Kristina Wagner): Aztec princess Felicia nearly didn’t become Mrs. Frisco Jones: Afraid of the danger of his new career as a cop, she called the whole thing off the day before. Happily, she changed her mind, but their loved ones were forced into fast action, as Felicia had canceled everything from the caterer to the officiant! A last-minute ceremony was pulled together at Bobbie’s brownstone, which was decorated to look like a garden, with a harpist playing as Felicia made her way down the aisle in a family heirloom lace gown, escorted by Sean. They exchanged traditional vows, then walked beneath an arch of batons courtesy of Frisco’s friends on the force. At the reception, Frisco serenaded his bride with “Lady of My Heart”, and the newlyweds spent their honeymoon night at Sean’s penthouse, which had been transformed into an Arabian Nights fantasy suite.
6% of the votes - Sonny and Brenda (Maurice Benard and Vanessa Marcil): It took Sonny over 15 years to make it official with his first great love, Brenda, but for “S&B” diehards, it was worth the wait. Brenda was anxious on her big day, considering that Carly had threatened to expose her past with Dante to Sonny, but her radiant smile was unmistakable as Jason escorted her down the aisle. When the minister asked if anyone objected to the union, Brenda decided to come clean about her “affair” with Dante — and prepared to walk away. Instead, Sonny believed that it had all been a ruse, and assured her of his love, telling her, “I ran away from you on our wedding day and I stood across the street in the rain, watching you break your heart. And I said then that that was the biggest mistake of my life. And I really don’t want to make that mistake again.” Brenda’s heart melted and the ceremony continued. At the reception, they shared their long-awaited first dance to “Home Again”.
4% of the votes - Duke and Anna (Ian Buchanan and Finola Hughes): Duke and Anna’s church wedding was one that honored their history, celebrating the groom’s Scottish roots (he wore a kilt and bagpipers performed) and Anna’s first family (ex-husband Robert walked her down the aisle, and her daughter, Robin, served as the flower girl). Cheered on by wedding party members including Sean, Tiffany and Felicia, they exchanged vows, during which an emotional Anna told a smiling Duke, “I pledge you my eternal love.” At the reception at the Port Charles Hotel, Anna surprised Duke with Scottish dancers, and before they departed for their honeymoon in Scotland, Amy Vining caught the bouquet (but Tony and Robert deliberately let the garter fall to the ground).
3% of the votes - Ned and Lois (Wally Kurth and Rena Sofer): They first tied the knot when Lois knew her groom as rocker Eddie Maine, but they went a more traditional route when they wed for real in a Catholic church in Lois’s native Brooklyn, NY. After a series of mishaps (their pre-wedding cruise erupted into mayhem when the boat sprang a leak; squirrels feasted on Lois’s gown, so she donned the wedding dress of Ned’s grandmother, Lila, instead; traffic was so bad that they had to race to the church on foot; and Lois’s ex, Danny, made an 11th hour attempt to win her back), they finally made it to the altar, with Ned promising “to spend the rest of my days proving my love.” Best per- son Brenda toasted the happy couple at the reception and they took to the dance floor to an instrumental version of “At Last”.
