Rainne September is 31 years old.

(Alastair is 32, Dean is 30, Kalika is 29 and Melantha is 3.)

Photobucket

I’m getting married!

Photobucket

I can’t even get mad at my crappy job anymore. It’s like I’m walking on air.

Jace came over to thank me for introducing him to Kalika. They’re hitting it off so well that they’re official now. In turn, I told him that I was finally engaged to Al. We were both giddy with excitement.

Photobucket

I gave him a hug. I noticed that his cologne smells a lot like Al’s. Had he ever worn cologne before? Maybe this was a change that came with him dating Kalika. His hand moved ever so slightly up, and I noticed that I’d probably been hugging him a lot longer than was appropriate. I hoped he didn’t take it the wrong way. I laughed it off and told him he’d have a front row seat at the wedding.

We decided on our best man and maid of honor quickly, Dean October and Kalika July, respectively. After that, it was a lot of nights spent discussing plans, preferably with a bottle of beer in each of our hands.

Photobucket

Kalika and Dean joined us, including with the beer, even though Dean almost always throws up and Kalika gets kinda crazy with too much alcohol in her system.

Photobucket

More often than not, though, Mel was there. And Mel’s presence meant no beer, but no one minded because everyone was too busy playing with her.

Photobucket

I decided to do a home wedding. Everything was easier that way, and we only had to pay for the marriage license. Everything else was rented from a party store. Jace and Kalika set it up. Doesn’t it look nice?

Photobucket

We decided to do the ceremony at sunset. I thought it would add an extra romantic flair, and the forecast was average for October, meaning that it was merely cool instead of freezing.

Photobucket

Al just nodded his head and agreed with whatever I suggested, though he threw in a couple of suggestions. I think he just wanted to get it over with. But I could see the excitement in his eyes. He was looking forward to after the wedding, I’m sure.

Photobucket

The only hitch was that Melantha came down with a stomach bug only a few hours before the ceremony. She wanted to be the flower girl so badly and I’d even pulled her hair out of that frizzy tail Al keeps it in, washed it really well and brushed it out so it fell down smooth. And it was a lot of work on top of getting my own hair done, putting on my dress and finding the best man, who’d wandered off.

Photobucket

The after-ceremony activities were done inside of course. By then, night had fallen, the temperature was plummeting, and the weather was calling for overnight snow. When we cut the cake, I warned Al if he messed up my dress, he was paying to have the frosting removed. That may have factored into his decision to play nice and feed me the cake like he had some sense.

Photobucket

I wouldn’t have thought we had so many friends, but seeing they way they filled the house, it filled my heart to see everyone gathered around sharing my special day. Kalika was being a nurse to poor Mel, but the bathroom wasn’t far away.

Photobucket

We did the photos the next morning. And of course, it was snowing now. Not the usual way, but I had the wedding at home and I could do that if I wanted to. Besides, the lighting would have been all wrong at night and we were all too busy before the wedding.

Photobucket

We almost didn’t go on our honeymoon, but Kalika insisted Mel would be fine. I was dubious until Dean said he’d make sure Marie checked up on Mel too. Kalika is my best friend, but Marie has a daughter.

Photobucket

As soon as I saw the huge hotel that we were going to be staying in, I was a bit glad Mel didn’t come, only if because there would have been no way for us to keep track of her in this place.

Photobucket

The first order of business was to, uh, unpack.

Photobucket

We ended up doing most of our sightseeing at night. Is that strange? We kept up waking up late and it took so long to get ready to go. By the time we were done, the sun was sinking fast. It gets dark here quick.

Photobucket

There were a few activities we indulged in during daylight hours, though. Everyone freaked out when I caught this fish. It’s pretty, but I don’t get the excitement. It’s just a fish. I wrapped it up in lots of ice since I’m not sure what to do with it. Most of the natives were offering me money for it, so it seems like a shame to just eat it.

Photobucket

I honestly didn’t want to leave. It was all so beautiful. And Mel was fine. She called us the second day saying she was all better and she missed us.

Photobucket

Of course, we had to return to reality with underpaying jobs, leaky plumbing, one little girl starting preschool and endless paperwork changing my name to Rainne September-May.

  • Title ref: This Song – BeBe Winans.
  • It’s almost a tradition now: Al and Rainne have to get married first. But you were all waiting for this, don’t lie. 😉
  • The real reason that Melantha couldn’t be the flower girl (or go on the honeymoon; I was planning it) was because she wouldn’t grow up! It was the weirdest thing. Everything I used to grow her up just restarted her toddler stage. I finally grew her up with the Sim Blender after Al and Rainne got back.
  • This pic is my favorite, but I decided to save it for those who actually suffer through my ramblings, LOL.
  • And this would be the first sim I’ve ever had catch a golden trout: someone who totally doesn’t care in the one neighborhood where I can’t claim points for it.
