Cas shows up to their wedding with his tie backwards. His face is so nervous and crushed when he sees Dean’s eyes trail down to the offending garment. Before anything can start he whispers urgently to Dean, “Gabriel refused to help me fix it. I look ridiculous. I’m sorry.”
Dean smiles brightly at him, but shoots a glare over his soon-to-be-husband’s shoulder at Gabriel. “You always wear your tie backwards, babe.”
"But this is our wedding," Cas hisses, and Dean can tell he’s itching to pull at the tie. Dean takes his hands in his own instead.
"In twenty years, when we look at the wedding album that Sam will insist on making for us, your backwards tie is going to be the thing that makes us both smile like idiots," Dean whispers just for Cas to hear, as the officiator starts to get impatient.
"Because I look like an idiot," Cas grumbles, but Dean kisses his cheek.
"No, because you look just like the man I fell madly in love with. Backwards tie, put upon expression, and sex hair. Now, will you marry me, or do we have to make everyone wait while I retie that for you?" Dean asks with loving eyes.
"We may get married, but you will need to fix my tie for at least the picture we will give to my mother. She will still be upset about it in twenty years if you don’t," Castiel replies as he turns to face front.
Dean doesn’t fix Cas’ tie for any of the pictures, and Cas is too happy to remember it’s backwards. They smile like dopes in all their photos. When Sam brings the album over after they get back from their honeymoon, Dean can’t stop laughing at how debauched Cas looks with his backwards tie and messy hair. Cas grumbles, but secretly he loves the way it brings out the crinkles around Dean’s eyes because he’s smiling with his whole being.
Cas ends up making them get dressed up in their suits again just so Sam can take a picture for his mother. When she asks why they look so tan, they tell her it was bad lighting rather than that it was taken after their honeymoon in Hawaii.
