Previous Chapter / Next Chapter:

Adrianna Walker and Dennis Tesla were married at the Newcrest Cathedral at Oracle Point on Saturday.  The bride is the daughter of Jana Walker and was escorted by her brother, Ace Walker.   Dennis Tesla is the son of Gavin and Cacey Tesla of the Three Rivers area, formerly of Oasis Springs.  In attendance at the wedding and reception were the groom’s family, including his two brothers Dashle and Darryl, and the family of his cousin, astronaut Delaney Tesla, as well as the youngest son of socialite Bella Goth, Desmond Goth.   The wedding reception was catered by Dante Denson, owner of Roll with It, located  at Magnolia Promenade.  The couple will live on Newcrest Boulevard West, in midtown, since both work in the city.  Ms. Walker has just been promoted to Corporal at P.P. Police Department after  stunning police work that led to a high profile arrest, and Mr. Tesla is a Medical Assistant at  Port Prominence Hospital.    The couple has plans to honeymoon in Granite Falls, since Mr. Tesla is an avid fisherman.


Adrianna’s family and friends held a wedding shower for her at Cacey Tesla’s home in Three Rivers.

Cacey’s mom, Jana Walker, arriving at her daughter’s shower.

The  house was overflowing with laughter, chatting, and occasional hooting at certain pieces of lingerie.

(at head) Delaney Tesla, Adrianna Walker, Cassandra Goth, Zoe Tesla-Goth, Rihanna Arias, Eleanor Simsfan, Jana Walker, and Elise Tesla-Goth.

After a while, Dante Denson, the caterer came in, and made a beeline for the kitchen.  Dennis considered entering the shower but decided to go fishing.

TS4 2015-06-21 15-05-23-79

And only returned to the house after all the guests had left.

TS4 2015-06-21 15-09-31-00

“See you at the wedding!”

The wedding was held late on a Saturday afternoon, at Newcrest Cathedral at Oracle Point.

Both Adrianna and Dennis showed up to their wedding day feeling very confident.  No cold feet here!

TS4 2015-06-21 15-33-33-58

“Here we go, babe,” Adrianna said.

TS4 2015-06-21 15-35-33-59

Realizing the somber nature of the vows they were about to make, they looked at each other for a moment before Adrianna began.

TS4 2015-06-21 15-35-14-56

“I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride. Loving what I know of you, and trusting what I do not yet know. Home is wherever you are. I love you not for what you are but what you are when I’m with you,” Adrianna said.

Dennis smiled.   He sort of looked like he was daring her to hold to what she’d said.

TS4 2015-06-21 15-41-26-57

Adrianna’s mother was on the verge of tears.

TS4 2015-06-21 15-40-50-33

Before Dennis began his vows, Adrianna noticed her mom tearing up,and smiled at her.

TS4 2015-06-21 15-43-02-12

Dennis got serious, and began his vows.  “I hope to grow old with you, even though you won’t go fishing with me.  I hope we share countless times of cheering for our favorite teams together; ranting about the refs together, and coming up with better plays than the coaches.  I hope I will have the strength to be a person worthy of your love and respect as the years go by.  I promise to bend my will to love you, no matter what.”

TS4 2015-06-21 15-40-30-27

Adrianna felt speechless, for once.

TS4 2015-06-21 15-43-30-86

When they first arrived at the reception, after the group photos, it was bedlam.  Relatives and friends were everywhere, hugging, chatting, and beginning to dance.  Adrianna sat down with her mom.

TS4 2015-06-21 15-52-58-57

“You ok, mom?  You look sad,” Adrianna said.

“Just a bit serious, I guess,” her mom said.  “No, I’m not sad.”

TS4 2015-06-21 15-53-03-25

Soon, Zoe came over to sit with Adrianna for a while.  They laughed and watched people being silly on the dance floor.

TS4 2015-06-21 15-53-51-02

Like Elise, who is normally so serious.  “I hope my brother doesn’t think she acts like that all the time,” Adrianna said.  “He’ll be in shock if he sees her normal grumpiness!”

TS4 2015-06-21 15-56-04-66

Elise was really feeling generous, and she went over and gave her dad a bear hug.

TS4 2015-06-21 15-58-24-18

Meanwhile, Gavin, Dennis’ dad, and Adrianna’s mom, were getting to know each other.

“It’s an emotional day, isn’t it?” she was commiserating with Gavin.

TS4 2015-06-21 15-58-51-45

“It’ll be ok,” she comforted him.

TS4 2015-06-21 15-59-00-71

Dennis found Adrianna in the crowd and asked for a dance.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-00-04-47

Meanwhile, Cacey was scurrying to throw together a gourmet wedding cake, since once again, the hired caterer wasn’t doing his job.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-00-56-85

Making the cake brought back memories of so long ago, when she was a teen at her sister’s wedding in Oakenstead, and her mom had to make the cake.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-01-20-97

Rihanna and Elise were catching up.

“Hey, look at that doofus in the crazy vest,” Rihanna said.

“That’s my uncle,” Elise informed her.  “But the vest is not fit for appearing in public.”

TS4 2015-06-21 16-02-10-13

“The last time we talked this much was at your granddad’s funeral,” Rihanna said.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-02-14-25

“Why don’t we ever hang out?!  Every time we’re together we have a blast!”

“Maybe because you are unsufferable,” Elise noted.  “Of course, other people have given me that same feedback as well, so maybe we are compatible.”

TS4 2015-06-21 16-02-30-79

Cacey brought the cake out when it was finished.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-14-57-44

The bride and groom waited and smiled for the photographer before taking the first slice.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-17-45-19

And then fed the cake to each other.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-18-37-51

Elise was also catching up on teasing her uncle, Desmond, who is, to her endless delight, several years younger than she.  From the first time she had met him, she had considered it part of her family duty to make sure he could take a good pestering.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-19-08-59

“You know, the color of that vest is just situated on the color spectrum at the point most stress-inducing to human retinal cones. It is a health hazard. Just so you know.”

It was a beautiful, even magical, evening.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-20-46-44

As some of the guests started to leave, Adrianna sat with Gavin and her mom a while.  They had really hit it off, since they found they had a lot in common.  As well as having children leaving the nest, both found that they were disgruntled with the current defensive coach for the Llamas and thought that the coach from the Bullfrogs needed to be recruited at any cost.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-21-29-37

Jana was getting ready to leave, and Adrianna gave her a big hug.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-22-01-93

“I”ll come see your new place soon,” she promised, but added with a little wink,  “But not for a few days.”

“Oh mom,” Adrianna rolled her eyes.  “So old fashioned!”

TS4 2015-06-21 16-22-11-45

Ewan kept wanting to join Zoe on the dance floor, but hadn’t gotten up the nerve yet.  Maybe the suit made him feel a little less free than he had at the pool party.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-24-41-52

“Go on, bro,” said Eric.  “You’re missing out!”

TS4 2015-06-21 16-27-33-43

Ewan hesitantly stood up near the table and began to dance.  Zoe stopped and watched him, but she didn’t come over right away.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-29-57-41

Dennis and Adrianna had gotten a bit punchy with their dancing.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-32-23-03

And Elise and Simone were giving Dante, the caterer, a hard time.

“My aunt had to leave the party and go make the cake,” she fussed.  “We expect this from an average, no-good, caterer, but Aunt Cacey hired you specifically to keep this from happening?!”

TS4 2015-06-21 16-34-54-21

But Dante just grinned, and danced, unfazed by her lashing.   He got fussed at every day of the week, so this bit of a rant was completely irrelevant to him.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-35-05-27

Dashle had decided to make a toast to his brother and new sister-in-law.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-37-12-45

While he was thinking about what to say, Ace told Adrianna he was looking forward to getting into some more comfortable clothes soon.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-38-36-71

“This cumberbund is too tight,” he complained.

Dashle began.  “Well, I’m the oldest, and the most appropriate of the three of us, so it falls to me to do the honors of this toast,” he smiled.  “Dennis, I never thought anyone would be willing to put up with the fish and worm grime under your nails, long enough to notice how charming you are.”

TS4 2015-06-21 16-39-21-49

“But you deserve every bit of happiness you’ve got, and then some.  Adrianna, how many guys have a sister-in-law who knows the rules of seven different sports better than they do?! I wish you guys the best. “

TS4 2015-06-21 16-41-40-60

“Maybe you’ll convince Adrianna to fish, and live happily ever after,” he added, and quickly ran for cover before Adrianna could say something scathing.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-39-04-65

Dennis took the mike.  He decided the best defense is a good offense, and chose to ostensibly ignore the jab about Adrianna’s squeamishness around worms and fish.  “Thanks, Dash, now I can finally get some sleep.  You know, Oscar Wilde said  “The typewriting machine, when played with expression, is no more annoying than the piano when played by a sister or near relation. “

“I couldn’t have better brothers than you guys; I’m gonna miss you.  But I’ve found the love of my life, and just because it’s gonna be weird, doesn’t mean it isn’t gonna be good. “

TS4 2015-06-21 16-43-22-37

“Adrianna, I know you won’t make me do it, so I’m safe; but if I had to choose between you and fishing, I’d give away my tackle tonight.”

TS4 2015-06-21 16-44-03-07

Zoe and Ewan were almost the last guests to leave the reception.  After Zoe helped Adrianna gather up the floral bouquets, she came back, and found Ewan dancing.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-47-56-37

The wedding party was over.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-49-07-28

Adrianna and Dennis took a taxi up Newcrest Boulevard to their flat.  It was pretty empty, but it was theirs.

Outtakes & Gameplay Notes:

Adrianna’s dress was by Sims Addictions.  It is called Sims 4 Sparkle Dress.

Elise’s dress was called Corset Dress Circle, by Bukovka

TS4 2015-06-21 15-23-28-02

Zoe’s dress was the velvet dress in the Sweet Dresses Set, by Puresim.

TS4 2015-06-21 16-30-39-00

Don’t know what was up with Dennis with this expression!

TS4 2015-06-21 15-43-14-06

Adrianna’s vows by Pablo Neruda; Dennis’ by me.

I was planning to make this a really short post, with just the newspaper announcement, and one or two pictures, but Kiz1313’s chapel is SO beautiful, and as usual, it was so much fun seeing everyone behaving autonomously (Delaney’s family was not the active family).  So it’s not short 🙂

I’m excited about Dennis and Adrianna’s flat, by itguyinsc (Credits on this page).   I remodelled the interior, which he had beautifully outfitted as a single townhouse.  Adrianna and Dennis enter by the fire exit on the park side (the back side of the building).

TS4 2015-06-21 17-23-53-83

They have a kitchen and living on their entry floor (second floor)TS4 2015-06-22 08-08-57-25

and their bedroom and bath on the top floor.

TS4 2015-06-21 17-22-39-41

There are a lot of skyscrapers, and the park, from their windows in the back.

TS4 2015-06-21 17-24-28-27

TS4 2015-06-21 17-45-36-00

Since we don’t have apartments yet, in actuality, Dennis and Adrianna have the whole building, but they only use the two floors.

    Love these screenshots! I also love how you were able to have so many people together like that as well as the family. Her dress is beautiful and so is that house! I especially like the brick accent wall in the kitchen. Definitely gives it that city-feel. 🙂

    • Thanks! I invite everyone I’m allowed on the party menu, and then also have my sims call everyone they know and ask them to hang out on the lot, and it works pretty well. I actually had the shower to bring up the relationships between Adrianna and a lot of the guests so they would attend. I love that dress too! And I’m pretty partial to exposed brick 🙂 Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!

    Wow–the mother daughter interactions are so priceless! I love that the mother teared up… and the bride, under the arch, turned to smile at her!

    I’ve noticed that type of subtle interaction–and contextual and emotional awareness–in my Sims at weddings before. They really respond so clearly to each other’s actions and emotions. It was really touching–I love that you singled out these interactions.

    And Elise! She floors me!

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it; they pulled me in with their interactions and subtleties, and I couldn’t resist writing a post even though they aren’t in the main household 😉

  3. What a beautiful wedding! You wrote it so intimately I felt like I was an actual attendee watching the whole day. I love all the details you added of speeches, vows, and the moments in between. The tour of their flat was great, too. A wonderful chapter! 🙂

  4. Carla says:

    It was a beautiful wedding and Adrianna’s dress is lovely! It’s nice to have something a bit different for weddings. I have a couple of short wedding dresses bookmarked – just need the right sim to wear them!

    I’m glad you went with the longer post in this case. 🙂 It was nice to see all the guests at the wedding, as well as get a peek at Adrianna and Dennis’s new home. It’s perfect for a young couple just starting out. I like the view from their window too. Is that window fogging up?

    • Thanks Rory, Carla! It makes me happy you enjoyed the wedding. I think the window is not fogging up; I went back and looked at the last picture and I think it’s just the way it’s rendered. That would be pretty cool, though.

    All of these weddings are making me emotional. It was neat to meet Adrianna’s Mom in this. Another caterer fails to bake the cake. I wish that would get fixed. Once in a while is one thing, but I’m not sure I’ve ever had a good caterer I wasn’t in control of.

    I love Ewan dancing after everyone has left. It’s my kind of awkward, wanting to dance but not in front of everyone.

    • I remember in your story, Lucius having to try to get a cake made when the caterer failed. As I’m reading through your comments, now with it having been much of Ewan’s adult life, I think he really does have a hidden loner trait.

      • moondansr says:

        I agree that he has a hidden loner trait. He seems to be very awkward in all the large get together situations. Zoe pulls him out of it a bit, but it really does seem to be there.
