The bride was dressed in ruffled white and wore a tiara. The groom pledged to be her best friend forever. They exchanged rings, and the lucky North Texas couple swooned as they danced to their favorite song -- "Love Bug" by the Jonas Brothers.
They may be a tender age -- Jayla Cooper is 9 and the groom, Jose Griggs, is 7 -- but their parents were behind them all the way.
For Jayla, who has been diagnosed with an aggressive form of leukemia and who, according to her doctors, may only have weeks to live, the "wedding" was less a dream come true than a last wish.
"He is very cute, and I love him," Jayla said of Jose, who has a chronic and more treatable form of leukemia with a strong prognosis of recovery.
"I was so excited and happy," she told ABCNews.com. "It was really fun, and we had dances and did a lot of things."
She met her husband-to-be at a Halloween party while they were both being treated at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children's Medical Center in Dallas.
"They did it right, like the real deal," according to hospital spokeswoman Jessica Newell, who said it was more of a celebration of friendship. "It was really sweet."
Jayla wanted all the fanfare of a wedding -- including 150 guests, floral arrangements and a minister -- even though the ceremony was not legal. It was organized in less than a week and held at Paradise Grove on the shore of Grapeline Lake.

Singing sensation Jonas Brothers took time in between their hectic schedule to pay a visit to one of their devoted fans, named Jayla Cooper who is fighting for her life against leukemia, at her home in Grapevine, Tex. on Sunday, March 1. During their visit, Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas and Nick Jonas sang their hit song "Love Bug", which is Jayla's favorite.
Jayla Cooper is a 9-year-old girl who is terminally ill with an aggressive form of leukemia. A big fan of Jonas Brothers, she danced to the band's "Love Bug" at her symbolic wedding to fellow cancer patient, 7-year-old Jose Griggs, which was held last week. Doctors who treat her believe that Jayla will only live for a few more weeks and so her parents organized the wedding because it was her final wish.
Jonas Brothers' heartwarming visit to Jayla Cooper's home will be broadcast during the airing of CBS' "The Early Show" on Tuesday, March 3 at 7 A.M.
