The Wedding

Always the bridesmaid, never the bride.

On Valentine’s Day this year, my dear friend Mr. Jefferson proposed to the lovely Eve Petlyakov, you may remember this blog post about it. This weekend was the wedding we’ve all been waiting for.

There are a lot of things that I found incredibly amusing about this whole wedding day and I wanted to share them in detail.

Momento Mori

Mr. Jefferson’s closest friends are both girls and Eve’s closest friends are all boys so the wedding party actually switched roles. I must admit I giggled when I found out that Monica Outlander and I were going to be the groomsmaids and Maddox DuPont, Jax Aster and Zachary Zufreur were going to be the bridesmen.

The bride and groom decided to troll their wedding guests by setting up a prank wedding that would be a bloody, cliche vampire theme, at which the bride would throw a tantrum and leave the groom at the altar. He would then teleport out after her. The wedding party were supposed to react and create more drama and then eventually we would teleport all the guests to the real venue and have the ceremony there. It was absolutely hilarious!

They made me wear this blood dress for the prank wedding, which I admit wasn’t THAT bad, *coughs* but I was encouraged to be dramatic about it on plurk and you know me, I love me some fake drama so I totally did my part and threw a hissy fit all over plurk. I’m still laughing about it and of course still being dramatic because I do that so well.

While the guests were filing into the prank wedding venue, the wedding party was in conference giggling at how “polite” the guests were trying to be about the decor and our outfits. I laughed so much my tummy hurt.

Right as the bride started the fake drama, I CRASHED! LOL So I actually missed all of that but by the time I logged back on both the bride and groom had gone already. Which helped me a little bit because I was all like, “uh, what happened? I crashed.” I also at the moment got a bunch of IMs from some of the guests asking if what was going on was real or fake and I was like, “I DUNNO, I CRASHED!” meanwhile DYING laughing the whole time.

Then I asked the guests to stay seated till we figure out what to do. The whole wedding party teleported to the new venue, changed into our “real” wedding outfits and had the guests come over there.

The ceremony itself took place at Momento Mori, which is a breathtaking sim! The bride looked absolutely gorgeous, I couldn’t stop staring at her dress and veil, it was all just perfection. Their vows almost brought me to tears. It was such a beautiful moment and I was so happy to be there standing beside my best friend on his special day. I know how happy Eve makes him and they both deserve to be happy together.

After the ceremony we all went to a third location for the party. It was setup like a carnival and everyone had a blast. I even got to slow dance with the hot DJ so that was the perfect end to the most perfect day.

The Wedding Party

During the whole wedding I had my graphics on low and no shadows to minimize crashing (and I still crashed, TWICE). But because of that, I did not get any nice pictures of the ceremony itself. The first two pictures in this post of me alone were taken before the wedding. I just went earlier to the location to take some snaps for a blog post because I absolutely loved this dress that Monica Outlander made for me. This Esther dress is one of her latest releases for Miamai. So you can pick up one for yourself. Just not in the color I’m wearing since this combination was created special for the wedding. However, she does have it available in seven other colors.

If you would like to see more pictures of the wedding ceremony itself and my infamous prank groomsmaid dress that I threw a hissy fit over, you can click over to Magenta Devinna’s flickr set as she’s got some nice ones in there. The third pic I took in this post was one with low graphics and not the best quality so definitely check hers out.

It’s been quite an amusing and memorable day. Thank you Winter and Eve for letting me be a part of your special day and for making it so much fun and hilarious. I laughed till my cheeks hurt! I adore the both of you and wish you both an SLifetime of happiness and hot sex (I don’t need the details). <3 Credits for my groomsmaid outfit: (not the prank one :P) *Skin: Glam Affair - Cleo - America - 05 C by Aida Ewing (it’s been released)
