It is Georgia and Billy Borden's wedding day. The evening before, on the way from the bachelor party to Billy’s place, the group of friends had come across a ghoul terrorizing an old woman in a parking lot, prompting them into a fight, which was made more difficult because they were drunk, resulting in various injuries. Billy's best man Kirby was put in hospital, forcing Harry Dresden to step in as a replacement.
The wedding is complicated by the kidnapping of Georgia, with the faerie Jenny Greenteeth taking her place. Georgia is rescued by Dresden and Karrin Murphy, and Jenny is later killed by Billy and Georgia in wolf form.
