It’s bleeding-eye o’clock on the day of Jarrett and Easter’s wedding and there’s a strange ruckus coming from the back of the garden.
I don’t even want to look.
But I have to.
That’s what I’m here for, right?
Hmm, perhaps “Jojo” isn’t feeling well. Do cowplants get hairballs?
Come on, Jojo, stop being so dramatic. I’m sure Easter will still pay you plenty of attention after the wedding.
So that’s where the groom went. *headdesk* This is gonna be a long day, I can already tell.
Rather than wait for his obituary, I should probably properly introduce Jarrett Palacios to you now: He’s Cheerful (when he’s not just been spit up by a cowplant), a Loner, and a Bro. His aspiration is Angling Ace – that’s an easy one! He has black hair, medium/light skintone. He suffers from squint-eye squarejaw something fierce. Most of the time he doesn’t even look like he has eyes, but he does and they’re a nice shade of brown. He’s got a sweet bod under that frumpy sweater, except he seems to be missing his butt. But that’s okay, ’cause Easter has a booty to span the ages!
Sorry for treating you like a piece of meat, there, Jarrett. I usually only do it once, unless I develop an unhealthy fixation on your pixels. Which won’t happen here, I don’t think. Pretty sure. Ahem.
Anyway, sent the poor fellow fishing so I could begin wedding preparations.
Despite an awkward and slimy morning, Easter and Jarrett’s wedding went remarkably well!
We decorated a bit. Bought the quickie wedding “room” since I’d already demolished ours. A throw-away tiki bar. A piano so we could have proper entertainment.
The wedding party began and the bride and groom actually changed clothes like they’re supposed to – a family first! Easter almost left for work right then (we’d just started her in the painter career, since she Loves Art and could stand a few danger-free hours away from the house) – we canceled that in time, but she had already changed out of her wedding dress. Oof! So we had to rush and find something in the dresser. But, she looked so radiant afterward that I can hardly muster a complaint, now! *wipes away a tear*
The groom didn’t look too shabby, either. 😉
Oops. Don’t worry, that was probably just a fluke. I think. Hey, look – it’s your almost-wife!
Sometimes I worry that I’ve pushed these two together, but when I see how they look at one another it puts my mind at ease. Easter puffs Jarrett up – he feels strong and has purpose around her. And she simply adores him.
While the lovebirds spent some time socializing, Dia started making the wedding cake himself. He’d been working on his culinary skills recently (Renaissance Sims are such dabblers!) so he was happy for a chance to show off his progress.
It took some work, but the cake came out quite nice!
I know, I did things a bit backwards here with the recept-ing before the wed-ing. But I wanted to make sure all the necessary parts were there before I clicked the great combiner arch. I’m getting better, really! At this rate we’ll have a perfect wedding by about generation 14. I *might* still be alive by then.
The guests were having a grand time! Elder played bartender for a host of uncles, neighbors, and townies.
The “entertainer” was actually entertaining. Ede, whose whims were filled with hugs and kisses, seemed particularly impressed.
When all the talking and eating and drinking were done, we took the final steps up to the wedding arch. For a long, aching moment Easter was the only one to take notice.
But it was alright! People were just taking their sweet time moseying on over. The guests eventually, finally, seated themselves and the ceremony began.
Promises were uttered,
Rings were exchanged,
And the covenant was sealed with a kiss.
Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Easter Lily Wolff! 😉
I suppose all of this makes it seem like Easter is the next heir. I don’t think that’s going to be the case, though. For whatever reason, Dia is her go-to person when she’s in the mood to yell at someone, so their relationship is just barely in the green. I guess with the cowplant gulping folks left and right, anything is possible, but for now I’m just loving her while she’s here. 🙂
