1.29 – La vie en rose

Chapter tune: Journey – Open arms

A year later:

“No… What are you doing man? Are you fucking insane?! My hair man, it’s fucking gone!”

“Relax bro, it’s not gone, just… trimmed. Well it was time you got a new haircut. Now for a nice clean shave…” Xander declared.

“Leave my face alone” Jared growled “Man, Rose is not even gonna recognize me.”

“Are you kidding me? I’m almost not recognizing you. What’s with the pink bowtie man?”

“It’s not pink! Rose said it’s salmon or whatever. You know what, fuck you man. If my girl wants pink, I’ll wear pink” Jared grinned. “So. How do I look?”

“Like a pretty princess”

“Remind me to beat you up right after the wedding. I don’t want my best man sporting a black eye” Jared said, but fortunately for Xander it was clear he was joking.

The wedding would take place at a venue a little far from the town center, with a breathtaking view of the sea.

It was a lovely day, matching this lovely event. The air was pleasantly warm, and while it had rained a couple of hours before, there was not a single cloud left in the sky. Everyone was gathered and waiting. Even miss Riddle traveled from Twinbrook to be present.

“Man, your brother’s girl is pretty late… do you think she changed her mind?” Xander asked Connor quite loudly a little after Jared arrived, much to Connor’s amusement. Jared on the other hand, suggested through his teeth that Xander should go fuck himself and just kept staring at the floor, while sweating bullets.

“Emma, since Rose has Jared and you have Connor, that means Xander is mine, right?”

“Girl, this isn’t a romantic comedy! The man’s here with his girlfriend, what do you think?”

“Doesn’t hurt to say hello though… Hey, handsome!”

“Hey ladies! Lookin’ good today Madison!” Xander turned his charming side on.

“I thought you’re here with Zelda?” Connor asked.

“Doesn’t hurt to keep my options open, right man?” he replied, while sending an air kiss the girls’ way “What do you want me to say? I have a thing for blondes!”

“The bride is coming, the bride is coming!” someone yelled, and everybody happily took their seats. 

Rose entered the room smiling and accompanied by her proud father and the sound of the guests’ applause, but all Jared could hear at that moment was the rhythm of his frantically beating heart, and all he could see was her. Everything else had just become a blur.

“Wow, Rose… you’re so beautiful” Jared managed to whisper as soon as she made it to the end of the aisle. He was wondering what he ever did to get to be so lucky. 

Philip gave Rose a kiss on the cheek and Jared a big hug before taking his seat. “Now we’re truly a family son” he told the groom, while trying to hold his tears. 

The vows and rings were exchanged and everyone cheered. Who would have thought a day like this would come for Sunset Valley’s most notorious bachelor?

“I love you baby… I love you so much” Jared whispered to Rose right after the ceremony. She was so overwhelmed with happiness, that all she could do was nod. 

A little later, the lovely couple left the stage, while the guests headed for the reception.

Shortly after, a slow romantic melody filled the air, signaling the arrival of the newlyweds who joined the room for their first dance.

Soon, everyone was dancing, socializing and having a good time.

“Nice haircut” Claire smirked at Jared as soon as she spotted him nearby.

“Thanks” Jared smirked back. “So, how do you like my wedding?”

“Well first of all, I’d never thought I’d hear you use the words my and wedding at the same sentence” she joked “But it’s wonderful kid. Congratulations.”

“So, Claire… are we ok? I mean, we haven’t really talked that much, except for when I come to pick up Emily and… I’d like us to be ok”

“Wow, that girl really changed you. Look at you, trying to make amends and whatnot” she smiled. “But yeah, we’re good. I’m sorry too for being impossible at times.”

“Yeah…. You were so pissed off all the time!”

“Hey, you’d be pissed off too if your boyfriend was a total jackass” Claire joked. “But yeah, I guess we just were a terrible match. …Well, congratulations again kid. I hope you know how lucky you are.”

“Oh, trust me. I know” he said while looking at Rose who was talking to her father – in a way, his father now too.

When Jared went to the buffet table to grab something to eat, Philip approached him. 

“Congratulations again son” he smiled “I hope you’ll both be very happy together”

“Thanks” Jared replied “It means a lot to Rose to have you here you know… and to me. You’re a great guy.”

“I’d never be here on this day if it weren’t for you. I want you to know that I appreciate everything you’ve done for us son. You’ve been taking such good care of Rose… I know you’re very busy with the restaurant, but I wanted to tell you I’ve booked you plane tickets and a house at Champs Les Sims for a week right after the wedding. I can change the dates if it’s not convenient though.”

“Are you kidding me? Rose will be so psyched! The restaurant will run fine for a week. After all, Emma is more than capable of replacing me. Thank you so much Philip… or should I call you dad?”

“I’d be heartbroken if you didn’t” Philip said while hugging his new son-in-law.

Like always, the night’s darkness soon gave its place to the early morning sunrays. Before Rose and Jared headed home, they decided to cherish that special day with one last dance under the violet sky. 

And now: Time for the wedding and honeymoon album (sorry for the picture spam!!) β€πŸ’•:

(Random toddler pose which I’ve totally reposted before using different clothes 😁)

PS: I know this chapter might be a bit boring, but they deserved a perfect wedding! Well, a perfect staged wedding that is, because the real one was a carnage. I locked all guests in order for them to stay put in the ceremony room, the couple could not get married because the arch was misplaced, time passed, half of the guests started pissing themselves leaving puddles all over the floor while the rest of them were passing out from exhaustion, blocking the way to the standing ones who complained as they were stinking and could not go anywhere… massacre! Anyway, I solved all this by adding about 20 sims to the household and completely turning free will off. How liberal of me!! πŸ˜‚ Anyway, more exciting things to come with generation 2, which will begin right after 1.30! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ Thank you for reading!! ❀

    1. Hehe!! Maybe he will, maybe he won’t! Nah, Xander really wants Zelda – at least for now, and Madison was just being Madison; excitable and childish 😁 I’m super excited for gen 2 and I hope you’ll like the story!! πŸ™‚

  1. *screams into eternity*
    This chapter was amazing in every way! First of all, I love Jared’s new look. He is very well groomed indeed, though I had to laugh when I saw the salmon bowtie. And Rose just looked lovely! The wedding was very her, filled with pretty flowers and lots of pink ❀
    I'm glad Jared and Claire made up, it would be nice to see more Emily.
    The pictures in France were so nice! I'm glad to see them truly relaxing and spending time as a couple in such a peaceful setting. I want to send my simmies there now!
    Oh my gosh, I feel your pain with the in game wedding. I don't know why it takes so damn long for them to all get into place and the vows to start (I just stage it completely with poses these days). It's all very frustrating but it looks like the wedding was worth it in the end!
    Wow, there's only one more chapter! That kinda makes me sad but I am also excited to see who's story we will be following and what cool adventures are ahead πŸ™‚

    1. Aaah thank you so much!!! ❀❀ I wasn’t sure at first about the bowtie and the hair, but I think he looked quite good! πŸ˜‰ And as soon as I saw that dress, I had to have it for Rose!
      We’ll definitely see Emily in the future! πŸ˜€
      The worst part about the “real” wedding was when Emma glitched when she was throwing the rice and she wouldn’t stop lol! If it was someone less important I’d reset them immediately, but not Emma of all people! πŸ˜‚
      I’m quite sad too to end this generation… but Rose and Jared will still be quite involved in the next one! It’s not the end of them! πŸ™‚

  2. Just as I expected, of course you didn’t disappoint~ Stunning shots all around. Everything from the color scheme and outfits to the scenery was so beautiful! πŸ˜€ ❀ The fact that Rose is getting married with her father present is something that I never would've thought when starting this story, it's great how everything worked out for her. Jared looks quite clean as well, glad he managed to soothe things over with Claire. Haha, I'd be mad if there wasn't a picture spam at the end. Share those lovely shots, girl! Can't wait to see the second gen, I don't doubt it'll be as dramatic and emotional as this was ;D

  3. AHHHHHHH so cute!!!! I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long and now it’s finally happening and agh ❀ Rose looked stunning! And Jared's new haircut paints him as more of a family man, which will be good with those twins πŸ˜‰ Rose's dad is amazing and I can't wait to see how generation 2 plays out!

    1. Thank you so much!! πŸ˜€ ❀ ❀ I might have gone through thirty hairstyles to find the perfect one for Rose lol!! I agree about Jared's hair, I think it makes him look more mature ❀ And I love Rose's dad too! I really hope you'll like generation 2!

  5. OMG! I love everything about this! Jared looks great in that haircut actually. I love how nervous he was.

    And that dress! It’s so perfect for Rose! It was a long road getting here, but it definitely was a gorgeous conclusion to their love story.

    It’s kinda sad that it’s just one chapter left in this story. But I’m sure gen 2 will be a blast!

    1. Thank you so much!! πŸ˜€ ❀ I loved that hairstyle on him, I think I just might keep it in future chapters πŸ™‚ Rose's dress is a store one, so I had to pay actual money on it haha! But I couldn't resist, I think it was perfect for her! ❀
      I'm also a little sad that all this is ending… but I didn't want to make them suffer anymore, I think I've put them through enough lol!! And although there's just one chapter left, we'll still get to see Jared and Rose frequently in the future! I'm not ready to give up on them yet! πŸ˜‰


  6. Wow, the shots were stunning. I’m glad everything played out well for them. You made me remember Fidelio’s and Gemma’s weddings. Goodness, those were messy! πŸ˜‚ I bet we all know the pain of arranging parties in the Sims. Sam swore to me that he is never getting to that point, guess we’ll see what it’ll be like.
    Everything seems so picture perfect that I’m starting to fear at what’s to come in generation 2. I smell drama.

    1. Thank you, I’m so glad you liked the pictures! ❀ I wanted to give them a perfect wedding night πŸ™‚ Oh, this wedding made me remember why I usually made my sims elope. It was just not worth it πŸ˜‚ Oooh, there's plenty of drama ahead, that's certain!
      I can't wait to read all about Sam (which is exactly what I'm about to do)! πŸ˜€

  7. I am such a hopeless romantic, and wedding chapters are my favorite. Everything looks so beautiful and perfect. The screen shots were amazing. Sim weddings are such a pain to pull off. There is always one sim who will never do what you want them to do!!

  8. Yay, they’re officially married! *celebrates while stuffing a slice of cake in mouth*
    Jared’s haircut looked very nice, and he looks so different! Haha, the struggles of trying to play with the Sims. They do such unpredictable things, and you can never get everyone to sit down during a wedding! The wedding was so pretty, by the way!
    I’m glad Claire and Jared are on good terms now, maybe Emily and their children can become friends πŸ™‚

      I thought that Jared should finally look different, he's a married man with three kids now after all! 😁
      Let's hope that Emily and her half-siblings will become friends, that would be nice πŸ™‚

    1. Haha, I thought about sharing those pictures too, but I didn’t want to put them on this chapter abd ruin it lol! Plus, I don’t think I got pictures of the whole mess unfortunately… just the puddles all over the room while most of the sims were crying and/or throwing rice… I might post some wedding bloopers later on though! 😁

      1. I am happy you took the decision, I know this idea is totally crazy but your story is loved and read and maybe you’ll got positive reactions as well.
        Of course not for chapter,it”ll be so awkward to post them for this chapter myself I make the sort the pictures I choose.

  9. XD Sounds about right, for a sim wedding! XD

    This was a beautiful chapter, regardless of how much of a hot mess the real deal was. Rose looks so happy! :3 And Jared, so stressed and lashing out. He’ll never change! ^_^

    I, personally, love the toddler spam and say “Keep it coming!” πŸ˜€

  10. It’s not a proper wedding with a few people pissing themselves, and having to surrender their free will, right?! But the staged wedding was beautiful and suited the story so well. Rose looked gorgeous. Hopefully they get their happily ever after now!

    1. Yes, haha, that’s right! 😁 Thank you so much! ❀ I know this whole thing was kinda out of Jared's character, but as you said, I think it suited the story too πŸ˜„ Hopefully they'll be happy together at last! πŸ˜€ ❀

  11. Ha, ha, aren’t Sims parties always a mess? XD If you want something perfect, you’d better just stage it πŸ˜› That’s what I learnt after I had a pregnant woman go into labour during the cake cutting…

    1. Yep, that’s what I’ve come to learn too! And oh wow, I never had that experience but I’m fairly certain I wouldn’t appreciate it if it happened at one of my weddings… hold your horses baby, nobody wants you out yet! Lol

      I wanted Emily to be there, but for some readon I couldn't handle the fact that she would be the same size as the twins (because she was supposed to be older). Super lame, I know! πŸ˜‚ Ehhh. 😁
