Take Me to the Moon 6.5

Previous Chapter / Next Chapter

Narrated by Fiona Tesla

After years of dreaming and doubting, and months of planning, we stood at the front of the church to be wed.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-03-32-98

Yuki looked so beautiful; she was glowing with carrying our baby, and I think that helped her overcome her strong dislike of large crowds.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-03-45-60

In fact, we’d limited the ceremony to my parents and aunt Zoe, just to help Yuki feel more comfortable.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-07-11-26

“Are you ready?” I asked quietly, and she nodded.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-06-23-38

I promised to love and respect her through the rest of my life.   I couldn’t imagine what could happen to make me want to forget that promise, it seemed like the easiest promise in the world.  But no matter how hard things get, I mean it, I do promise to love and respect her, cherish her.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-09-13-63

Yuki said her vows and then gave me a big hug.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-09-42-85

Then it was time for the reception.  I checked, and our family friend CT was there to play the piano, and the bartender, Tony Stark, had arrived.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-17-41-06

But the caterer was no where to be found, so I quickly mixed up a cake myself

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-16-57-01 TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-17-09-78

Yuki felt a little stressed by all the hub-ub over the cutting of the cake

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-22-04-35

My uncle Eric and his daughter, my cousin Ashlee, made a big deal out of it

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-22-46-55

“Light or heavy frosting?” I asked playfully, to help calm Yuki’s nerves.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-23-20-21

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-24-00-49

Then we retreated to the sanctuary with Felicity, who doesn’t like crowds either, to eat our cake in peace.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-25-06-80

Felicity asked, “What’s it like, to be married?”

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-26-03-14

But before I could answer, we noticed the bartender had come in, and was flirting with her across the room.

I asked her if she knew him and she laughed, and said she didn’t think so.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-26-54-01

I went out after a while, to spend some time with our guests, who were enjoying the dance floor and DJ.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-32-06-36

After a while, I noticed Fearghus hanging back instead of joining in so I went to check on him.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 16-00-26-11

He said weddings make him sad because it just highlights how alone he is.  He asked why we didn’t invite Alyse, and his other friends.  I told him how stressed Yuki was, and that we only invited people Yuki felt she knew well.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 16-00-15-28

Felicity called to him to join her, and he made his way over there.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 16-02-38-80

By then, everyone else was going to the buffets for food, so I asked Fearghus if he wanted to dance and finally got him to agree to a dance-off

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-33-43-32

I knew appealing to his competitive nature would be the trick

But he ended up laughing so hard he could barely dance.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-34-07-87

and finally, forgetting about his bad mood.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-34-18-09

Before we joined the others, I got a quick picture, proof that Fearghus can have a good time at a wedding

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 16-00-45-26

Yuki was telling Uncle Ewan he was soon to be a Great Uncle, as if he couldn’t tell or thought she decided the height of bridal fashion was a soccer ball under your dress… plus, dad is beaming and telling anyone who will listen that he’ll soon be a granddad.TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-46-57-64

But Uncle Ewan acted surprised anyway

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-47-09-82

Dad asked how Yuki was feeling, and if we’d had our second ultrasound, and if the doctors were being conscientious.  After all, this is a revolutionary pregnancy, and I think he might be having second thoughts about helping us and the doctors with the methodology.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-53-14-79

I realized, he can’t bear the thought of something going wrong, and feels responsible.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-53-05-13

“It’ll be ok, dad,” I said.  “No matter what, I’m glad you helped us.”

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-52-28-92

It was time for family pictures.

Here’s Yuki with her new in-laws

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-44-02-73

Yuki and I with my parents, Aunt Zoe, and Felicity

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-46-07-34

And Aunt Zoe finally got Uncle Ewan in one of the pictures.

TS4_x64 2016-02-14 15-49-25-62

And one last one of Yuki and I

Gameplay Notes:

  • I was very disappointed to learn that I could not have Zoe arrange for their wedding, from the main house, so I was limited to inviting the sims that Fiona and Yuki know well.   Yuki does have the Loner trait, so she had some stressful moments with the crowds.
  • We really need classical and slow dancing for weddings, and larger group photos or at least be able to use bb.moveobjects on sims!!!
  • The beautiful medieval church, reminiscent of a monastery, was built by Ruthless KK and you can see a tour of it, on her blog.  It is available for download on the Gallery too.
  • You probably noticed I used the pictures of Fearghus dancing with Fiona out of order, I had those pictures of them dancing earlier and wanted to show Fearghus after Fiona cheered him up, but after he cheered up, he left, and I was busy trying to get the family portraits done.

    What a sweet ceremony! I really enjoyed the family photos. And that cathedral from across the bay looks so awesome!

  2. Carla says:

    Aw, no slow dancing? That’s a shame! It’s always been added with expansion packs in the past though, so maybe you’ll get it in the future?

    Yuki and Fiona had a very sweet wedding regardless! Glad to see them tying the knot finally! And to see Fearghus enjoying himself, lol!

  3. Cathytea, thanks! It’s odd, I didn’t get a message about your comment, so I didn’t realize you had commented till now!

    Carla, yes, I really miss slow dancing and classic dancing so much. Glad you enjoyed the ceremony & fun, and thanks for commenting!

    What a great wedding! The church and outdoor patio area were lovely backdrops for these two. Poor Yuki, weddings are stressful enough without having the spotlight on you and the loner trait. Glad she had a good time and made it through without many issues…. though the cake would be a huge fiasco irl! Lucky that Fiona can whip up a wedding cake quick! Glad Fearghus could find some fun for himself, smart appealing to his competitive nature.

    Felicity is so pretty, I really love her cheek bone structure, as such an odd thing to say, but she’s really lovely. <3

    This was adorable. Your explanation for having a small wedding made perfect sense. I loved watching the brides feed each other cake! Sims 3 has cake cutting, but I really wish they’d done that too. I think this is the first really good look I’ve seen of Yuki’s face as an adult. She looks so sweet.

  6. Maisie, I agree, I think Felicity is so beautiful and I would have loved to have seen her be heir, although Fearghus is great too. Felicity got a lot of her grandma Bella and her mom, Zoe’s, beauty. I’m still quite frustrated with weddings, without proper dancing or group portraits, but I’m glad you enjoyed it. I did like the setting and everyone ended up having a special day. Thanks for commenting!

    Echo Weaver, Yes, I like Yuki’s look too. She’s a really fascinating sim, it is kind of disappointing not to get to play her but I just felt too overwhelmed with the full house for so long. It will be neat to see what kind of look Yuki and Fiona’s children have. Between their face shapes and coloring, there’s a lot of range.
