One guy who should be invited to Miley Cyrus’s wedding to Liam Hemsworth — provided they aren't already hitched — is Nicholas Sparks.

He's the author of
The Last Song, and when that book was turned into a movie, Miley and Liam were cast as the romantic leads. And that's where it all started.

“It took about four minutes," Sparks told Ryan Seacrest of how long it took for the couple to fall in love. “Literally they saw each other and it was like ‘ding!’ I mean, they had the little, like, cartoon flowers coming out of their eyes. It was great, good for them.”

So. Cute.

That's not going to happen with Sparks's next adaptation, Safe Haven, which opens Valentine's Day. That one stars Josh Duhamel (who is married to singer Fergie) and Julianne Hough (who is dating Ryan Seacrest).

Still, it's fun to piece together the Miley/Liam love story. We know how quickly they fell in love, we know he proposed to her after hearing this song, and now we just have to hear about the actual wedding!
