Chapter 64 – We’re Getting Married Today

03-24-18_12-10-07 AMBen got up and took a long, hot shower before Cole woke up. Today, he was getting married.  Again.  He realized he was nervous – and not just because it was his second marriage or a big fancy affair.  He was nervous because he wanted everything to be perfect for Sofia. His and Sofia’s entire family would be there along their friends.

While the hot water washed away some of the tension, he thought back five years ago to the last time he was with his entire family. They had come together to wish him well as he left for College.  mem2Looking back, he was ashamed that he couldn’t wait to be rid of them. Now, he was thankful everyday for them. They had been a godsend for him, Cole and even Sofia.  He had learned a hard lesson with Grace’s death and the birth of his son. Never take your family for granted. They are the ones who will always be there for you and love you no matter what. He vowed to himself he would make life as happy as he possibly could for Sofia and Cole so they would never feel unloved.

Still, Ben would have been fine if they had just gone to a J.P. to get married, but when he saw how Sofia lit up talking about their wedding, he could never take that away from her. mem3He laughed when he remembered the advice his soon to be father-in-law had given him. Edmund, as he had asked Ben to call him, had been right. Ben had nothing to say about anything regarding the wedding except the bachelor party.  And then he wasn’t entirely sure he had anything to say about that either.

Mem1.pngHe had to admit, Casey outdid himself with the party.  They simply went camping. Thank goodness no girls popped out of a tent. Emma, maybe even Sofia, probably had just a little to do with that. Regardless, it had been great fun with just the guys, in a cabin, in the woods with lots and lots of beer and food, telling crazy stories around the campfire.

03-24-18_12-21-48 AMAfter his shower, Ben went to wake up Cole.  They  were going to his mom’s house for breakfast before heading to the church. Cole was still sound asleep, so instead of waking him right away, he decided to text Sofia. Sofia had cut off all contact the afternoon before.  ‘It’s bad luck’ she had said.  He typed “I love you” and hit send anyway. She immediately texted back two rows of heart emojis. He couldn’t help but smile. It was enough to help quell his nerves, temporarily anyway.

03-24-18_12-23-06 AMHe leaned over and gently shook his son awake. “Time to wake up buddy. We’re getting married today.”

  1. Yes, finally! Well, you have my major respect and it must have costed you soo much time to get the wedding right. Weddings are such tiring affairs in the Sims, especially weddings this big! But I loved seeing everyone again, and Ben and Cole finally got married to Sofia. These two lucky guys! Beautiful! ❤

    • Thank you. ❤️ I wanted so much more but it wasn’t meant to be. RL killed me. If I had my way we would have had at least 10 more shots! And Ben and Cole got married! ❤️❤️❤️

  2. YAY!!!!!!!!!! This came out so amazing. I know it was a huge pain to screenshot this, but it 100% paid off! I especially loved seeing Cole run up and get carried down the aisle with them. How adorable was that? Ahhh! ❤ Congratulations, Ben and Sofia (and Cole!) ❤

    • Thank you!!! I am so glad you liked that screenshot. ❤️ I worked hard to get the one with him running up after the ceremony and Sofia grabbing him. Haha. I had 34 sims on the lot. And I never thought about school and work as some of them actually had jobs! I had to stop every rime and cancel the action. Ugh…and in one shot Reese is in a suit and tie instead of a tux and I didn’t notice it made it into a screen shots until this morning…he twirled into his work clothes. 🙄 Be happy I was gone all last week or you would have had about 10 or so more pictures! 😂😂😂😂. But the most important part is Cole and Ben got married! ❤️

    • Thank you.❤️❤️❤️ In spite of dressing and moving 30+ sims onto a lot I really had fun shooting this chapter. And got a little emotional during parts of it. Especially Ben helping with Cole’s tux and his mother helping him and hugging him before the ceremony. ❤️

  5. Beautiful Wedding, Even my best could hold a candle to this, it’s happy and sad at the same time, happy because this is the happy ending Ben deserved, Sad because a happy ending, is still and ending, and I am going to miss seeing Ben twice a week get in one shenanigan or another. I watched the boy grow up in the first story, from a scared and introverted kid to a angry adult, and then saw him grow from a bit of a punk to a good man, and a good father. BTW I saw the spoiler photos of Ben and Cole, Ben looks so much like Newt in that picture it’s a bit alarming lol.

      • Haha…hit send too fast! Newt and Ben do look a lot alike! His brother looks a lot like his Dad as well, you just don’t see it because of his blonde hair. But…thank you for the compliment! The wedding was a fairy tale for Sofia! And you described Ben’s journey so well. 🙂 We shall see in Cole’s generation what type of man he has raised. It will be interesting for Cole to say the least. ❤️ Full of love and heartbreak. Of course.

  6. OMG! What an amazing wedding!! You did an excellent job of capturing everything, and the music was a beautiful touch. I’m so glad Ben and Pia tied the knot and they can have their happily ever after. Can’t wait to see what’s next 🙂

  7. OHH so sweet .. beautiful job!! All my fav poses and that dress .. way to dig back to a FAB release from so long ago! I have looked at that one (and one from inabadromance that is no out of circulation) every single wedding that I have done. Excellent!

    • Thanks so much! ❤️ That dress just worked for her. I am sure a million brides have worn it. 😂😂😂 And a few poses that have been around…I spent way too much time creating two of my own and tweaking a couple to get rid of major clipping. But in the end, it was worth it. ❤️

    • Reid and Newt actually did good! Newt is getting a little too comfy with Kaitlin though! Haha. I’m sure Leroy doesn’t like it. The music is commonly played as the bride walks down the aisle. At least in the U.S.

  9. Such a beautifyl wedding!! ❤ ❤ ❤
    Everything looked perfect. Good for Reid & Newt for behaving themselves. And way to not screw things up Casey (for once).
    And little Cole in his tux, my heart melted. I already can tell that he is going to be a heartbreaker just like his father.

  12. Loved all the snapshots of the wedding. You really out did yourself and it must have taken alot of time to get the perfect pictures. Great pictorial story of the wedding and reception including the dance.
    Great idea about camping and campfire for the bachelor party.
    Am reading on.

    • Weddings are so beautiful and so hard to shoot! I love looking at them again and remembering especially as they get older to remember what it was like.

  13. I honestly didn’t think it would happen, but I’ve secretly been pulling for them from the first. I thought I’d just have to accept the fact that the ones I ship don’t typically end up together, but they did! 🙂
