Chapter 5.12 The Best Day in my Life

  1. Wow! What a wedding! :O I’m absolutely blown away by the amount of pictures and the effort you put into this. I would have keeled over before I made it halfway through all those sims. How did no one pass out? Pee themselves? Give birth? Run off to play the guitar? You must actually be a witch! I loved this.
    And of course I loved the Rose and Jared cameo and the reference to the current story-line in their story. Cameos are always nice 😀
    I’ll have you know that you’re mean, though. I actually for once thought Reggie and Hailey were sweet at the beginning of this! I’m not going to root for them, though, because it will all end in tragedy and tears eventually. At least they had a nice wedding, apart from Deq showing up like that. What a sleaze ball.
    The wedding venue and the pictures from the party were seriously nice, though. I loved ALL of this. The family is SO BIG and I can’t believe you got them all in there! I know this chapter nearly killed you, so let me say this: Your effort paid off. It was epic 😀
    Thanks for sharing your hard work with us, Jowita ❤

    1. I can’t believe you’re blown away. I always admire YOU for putting the work into your stuff. Mine was just… a creation of someone with massive OCD, who has to get everything right, LOL.
      I sure hoped I wouldn’t tire everyone out with this amount of pictures.
      I dressed up all of these Sims. And I think they were running on static needs hence why they didn’t pee. They didn’t want to dance, though, when I told them to, so some of them were standing outside the building. And I totally got rid of the babies during the ceremony. I couldn’t bother with them. Not to mention Renee randomly lost her dress, I don’t know why. And I reset her not to let it show. There were too many Sims anyway for anyone to notice. And I totally stalked Sempreviva’s chapters to make sure Jared and Rose look as close to how they looked in her story as they possibly could. I changed the percentage of Helen pregnancy, too, so that she wouldn’t give birth. And I made everyone have days off from work and I baricated the lot with hedge, so that they wouldn’t run away – it wasn’t a party after all, as my game crushed when I tried to invite everyone over. So I set it up manually.
      Noo, I’m not going to split them up. Both will have something bad happen to them seperately. Just so you know 😛
      Deq is so silly!
      Thank you so much for complimenting the pictures. I stayed up until 1 am yesterday, I think, to put the effects on them all. I think they’re a bit too bright, but you know I always put the blame on Hailey, so Hailey made it look too bright, LOL.
      The family is super big. But at least some of them are dead (that doesn’t sound nice). I wanted to include Dellie as a ghost but I had to give that idea up, because it was too much work.
      Thank you so much for saying this. I think it was worth it. ❤

      1. I don’t feel like I do nearly this much with my set-ups 😛 Don’t build houses, rarely have more than ten-fifteen sims on a lot because I hate dealing with all that… The most I do is decorate a bit 😛
        But this really is amazingly done, and so big and extravagant 🙂 It’s very Hailey! I understand why you’d set it up manually. I hate all kinds of socialising and parties in Sims. So when I play and my sims roll a wish to throw a party, I’m like – Nope!
        Pahaha, so they can be miserable together. Yay! XD
        I think they’re exactly as bright and lovely as they should be, truly 🙂 It all looked amazing ❤

      2. I am mainly jealous of your pretty pictures and pose-making skills. I plan to try it all out myself at the end of June. I only build houses for heirs, because I force myself to, but I really can’t build at all. My most recent build is Reggie’s house, which is pretty extensive.
        Thank you again. I’m glad you appreciate all the work that went into it. Generally, I imagine this as Hailey continuously saying: “I want me a wedding and I want it big” and Reggie applauding her: “I want all of my folks there!” So they forced 😛 The only trait they share is the social butterfly one.
        Well, I was forced not to make it a party so that my game wouldn’t crush. All of these taxis coming, it was a mess.
        Yup, miserable together is a good way to put it! XD
        Yay, I’m glad they weren’t too bright.

  2. This is one of the prettiest venues for a wedding that I’ve seen! And everybody was there! I thought it was cool how you put the family tree pics in to remind us who is whom.

    All the pics are so beautiful! Hailey had her dream wedding! I’m glad that Deq was quickly shown the way out. lol

    And I thought I recognized Jared and Rose! That is so awesome!

    I really, really enjoyed this, Jowita. ❤

    1. It’s a venue made by Pralinesims. You should check her venues out. They’re all beautiful, however I had to download the base game one, because most of them include ITF which I do not own.
      Thank you so much. Yes, I got everyone there, because I’m kinda obsessive, LOL. I wanted to make sure you’ll know where they all come from.
      Thank you so much. The pics are a bit too bright, imo, but I’m glad you like them. Lol, we needed Deq out of there.
      Yes, I wanted them to look as close to how they look in Sempreviva’s story as they possibly could. I hope I did them justice!
      Thank you so much ♥

  3. What a massive undertaking! I did a couple of TS3 weddings and you had sooooo many more sims than I was willing to have. Just dressing that many probably took days and then getting them all there…. ugh. But it was wonderful. The venue was gorgeous. I miss the color wheel so much in TS4. Well done…. I wonder if Dequan showing up has any significance or if he was truly sorry. I am so glad Hailey is happy. That is something we haven’t seen a lot of in this story. ❤️ And Clinton…❤️

    1. I know! I don’t think I’d be able to ever respeat it. It completely wore me out.
      Yes, dressing them took days and then organizing it. I had to give up the idea of the party because my game crashed. So I had to teleport all of them there.
      Thank you so much. The venue is by Pralinesims and I agree that it’s utterly beautiful.
      I didn’t even use the color wheel that much here Most of the dresses are from Rusty Nail and were already colored. But the lack of it is one of the reasons why I would never switch to TS4.
      Oh, Deq. I don’t want to deal with this guy again and I suppose Hailey doesn’t want to either, nor Cecily.
      She is ♥

  4. wow jowita… this chapter is something else, the work you put in this chapter, all them poses with all them sims must taken a while to do, I’ve shied away from having so many at the wedding I been working on, only 11 sims and one of them is a baby, and that was a lot work, but what you’ve put in to this, is just awesome and I love the family tree pictures, all the pictures are amazing… this must of been so difficult to do, but you done a really great job on this chapter 🙂 your creativity and story telling is an inspiration 🙂

  5. Wow! That wasn’t a wedding, it was an event and could easily be one that is talked about for years to come. Can’t even begin to imagine how long it took you to dress, gather and coordinate all of these sims for your gorgeous screenshots. Beautiful job. Absolutely beautiful.

    Congratulations to Hailey and Reggie. Hailey found the man and the lifestyle she wants … hopefully it will be everything she expects as they live together and “take off their makeup and let their hair down”.

    1. It was… purely just a lot of mess. I began the preparations last weekend and since then I’d been working practically every day up to today at night. It took a few days to dress everyone up, then take seperate photos and finally – arrange the event. Reggie is a very famous celebrity after all and I think it can’t be forgotten. He and Hailey are both extroverts and that’s the kind of wedding they wanted in my head. So I did it. For them. And now I’m severely worn out. Thank you so much, I’m glad that my efforts are not fruitless.
      Yes, hopefully Hailey and Reggie can make it work and will be as happy with one another as they can be.

  6. What a lovely wedding! I actually haven’t seen anyone use that venue before, so it’s great to see you put it to such nice use! I’m amazed how many sims you managed to include in the wedding — dressing them up AND posing them all sounds like an absolute nightmare, so I am applauding you! I really can’t imagine putting so much effort into that sim aspect of the wedding, because sims are just so annoying to deal with, I prefer to work on the decorating to distract people from the small attendance number, LOL.
    Wow, Jared and Rose??? That was really unexpected, but I love it! Very very cool to see another story’s sims, especially with context in what is happening with Jesse right now.
    I was surprised that Reggie was so enthusiastic at the start, I was thinking he might have reservations after sobering up. Maybe that might happen after the wedding though… these two seem to be living mostly off physical attraction… so I wonder what will occur when Reggie has to deal with Hailey’s less attractive traits, such as her laziness.
    Awesome chapter ❤

    1. Thank you 🙂 I thought that venue was really nice and it required base game only, so I went with it.
      I somehow managed, but I can’t say it didn’t take me so much of the time I could spend doing something more productive with my life. Lol, the venue isn’t even minex so I wasn’t the one to decorate there. Sims are super annoying to deal with. It was a mess staging it.
      The very same 🙂 It was nice having them over and I think I did them justice with having them as close to their current versions in Sempreviva’s story as possible.
      It was a few months later and since then Reggie has actually come to terms with his “drunk decision” to marry Hailey. He realized that even though it was reckless, he really wanted to do so after all. Yes, they are behaving like magnets in the presence of their other half. Who knows when they may burn out and how it will work out for them in the future. Yup, not all of Hailey is the sexy and pleasant one.
      Thank you very much ♥

  7. What a fantastic wedding! There were so much colorful outfits and various faces. I will definitely remember this wedding for the rest of my life.
    I’m glad I could flashed on all Hailey’s family members. This family is so big and (in the majority) blonde hair. Hannah, Reggie wasn’t a good choice, because he is blond. The autor will be crying again, if the baby turn out to be blond.
    It was good to see old and new friends. Brady and Cecily, I have missed them so much. I can’t wait to see them again. Have Ace find a new girlfriend?
    I thought Reggie’s twin brother will have blond hair. What a shock. Adam should find Eva as soon as possible.
    I’m glad Cedric didn’t showed up at the wedding. He could destroy everything. I know, I have an obsession about his presence since Frank’s wedding, but I’m really scared.
    In my view, there was too many journalists. It was a stragne coincidence. There is no forgiveness for Deq, he has broken so many ethical rules. Someone always has to take revenge on heirs.
    Anyway, I’m glad the wedding took place. Hailey and Reggie are together a bit, so they should be a marriage. And they finally are married 😀 I know why Reggie propose to Hannah. I know some story in which a copule decide to get married. A man wanted his future wife to remember the best things related to marriage. That’s why he proposed to her, because women love romantic things, and he knew she will be remember it forever. It was nice of Reggie. He wanted to fix his previous, unsuccesful engagement. And now he has a wonderful wife who he loves with all his heart. Happy married life and live happily ever after. Maybe I should write more happily than the rest of heirs.
    I have a feeling that this night will bring a new family member. I’m very sweet person and I hope it will be a girl. #teambabygirl
    And one more thing, I felt in love with Honey Darnell ❤

    1. Thank you!
      For sure, Hailey didn’t make a good choice with Reggie and his blond hair. Maybe she should have chosen Adam instead? You are right with the author crying again. That does sound like horrible foreboding.
      I hope to write about Brady and Cecily again soon. I know we both missed them. And our “pleasant” friend from the site as well. Hm… About Ace, you will see.
      Reggie proposed to Hannah because he’s older than her and more traditional. To him, it’s the man who should propose in a conventional way.
      Who knows really? A girl? Maybe…
      Honey Darnell was the absolute star of this wedding ♥

  8. All I can say is WOW. Just WOW. I admire (and am a bit jealous of) the amount of effort it took to have so many sims under one roof. I loved seeing the different family members. Most legacy writers focus on the heir and he/she is the only one that gets a spouse. But your family tree is so very detailed with not only names, but fascinating backstories as well. I am in awe.
    And of course it is always great to see Fraylon.
    PS- If you ever need more sims let me know. You can have anyone from my stories (or my simself). I don’t like the Exchange, but I can maybe email them to you.

    1. Thank you. Nothing to be jealous about. It was all a tedious job that ate up all of my free time. Not all of them was family and I didn’t even write detailed stories for them. The other ones were EA townies who are celebrities. And of course my lovely Cecily, Ace and Brady ♥
      Yay for Fraylon!

  9. Wow. That wedding was spectacular!
    It must’ve taken ages to set everything up. From the venue to everyone’s outfits, you didn’t overlap anyone’s hair or clothes colors. So many wonderful dresses 😍 That takes some work! Normal sim weddings are a nightmare and this one was that to the power of ten. I love the details you put into everything; including the family tree and showing the flashback screenshots. That RosexJared cameo was such a pleasant surprise ☺️ Everything was so organized, it must’ve been a hassle to sort out but I can appreciate the consistency! Ummm, Reggie’s twin brother is a hottie 😏 Are we ever going to see him again? Man, Deq has some nerve showing up like that… I was applauding when Reggie called security on him 👏 The dancing shots at the end were lovely~ I didn’t think Hailey would manage to have a blissful wedding but she proved me wrong! I only wonder how things will go from here… I keep on thinking something bad is going to happen any moment 😂 This was great! ❤️ Can’t wait to se what happens next~

    1. Thank you! It was meant to be, as we’re talking about Hailey and her super popular partner after all!
      The venue was created by Pralinesims, as I can’t build at all. So I just placed some speakers and a wedding arch, and there we go. The dresses are mostly by Rusty Nail. His site doesn’t work properly as the download links are broken, but his dresses have been reuploaded, so you can just search for the name you want here, you can also check out the names on my CC site 🙂
      And there you’re wrong, because Hailey has the same hair as Laura, Mason’s wife. So I did overlap after all.
      Agreed, it WAS a total nightmare, and I can’t argue with that. It was fun. Again, my OCD tendencies showed. Some of this stuff was mainly so it would be easier for me to get a hold of all the relatives. You know, I HAVE to have everything under control, including everyone’s spouses and children. I’m a pretty despotic queen if I say so myself.
      It was fun having Jared and Rose there. I tried my best for them to be as similar as they could be to their adult versions. I think they turned out okay 🙂
      Thank you, yes, I had to sort out when everyone would make an appearance so that it makes sense and isn’t confusing.
      I know Reggie’s brother is handsome, because he looks exactly like Reggie with different eye and hair color. I know because I edited Reggie in CAS to get him 😂 I don’t know, he’s rather unimportant and he and Reggie don’t get along well.
      Yup, Deq had it coming for him!
      The dancing was horrible to stage as the people refused to dance. Fraylon danced asap, though.
      She did have a wonderful wedding. Don’t worry, nothing bad… For now 😏

        I didn’t notice, probably because the screenshots were spaced out and the hair colors were different. Either way~ well done! I’m not surprised Fraylon would dance quickly, haha they are so compatible. Hmm I wonder how long it’ll be before that bad stuff shows up then… 😇 I probably sound evil, lmao.

      2. I think it was small for a celebrity wedding if compared to a decent one in real. But for Sims it was super big.
        Feel free to do so if you want to. It took some time to complete this CC list, too. Fortunately I have a special folder called wedding and I even put character names to the packages’ names for better navigation. OCD much?
        Thank you 🙂
        Yup, I think Fraylon is a lovely couple. They genuinely love and care for one another. Imagine if Frank had to raise Clinton alone. They didn’t even know each other well at that point and yet Waylon agreed to help him raise his brother.
        The end of the generation is long enough? Lol.

  11. Well, that was a journey through all sims with fame and name. Great chapter for a big event.
    I think Hailey Nathifa will fit wonderfully among all those celebrities and the best of luck for the newly weds. It was fun to view all nice pics and the who is who..
    My compliments for putting all those sims in nice clothes and bring them together.
    What a diligent work, Jowita.
    Besides, Littler’s Bronson is one of my favorite sims and married to a man im my game also.

  12. I’m also blown away with everyone else!!! So many Sims!!! I love the way Hailey and Reggie greeted everyone like a royal couple, haha! They are celebrity royalty now. And everyone posed and dressed up is just impressive! I love all the different guests from Hailey’s family to your other Sims, plus me and Sempreviva’s, and the premade celebrities. I think it was such a great mix.

    Oh man, you really got Jared and Rose’s characters. Of course Rose can’t help but worry about her son. And Phil and Keely were hilarious! Of course Phil will take any chance to talk about his son while trying to mooch cookies. xD The pic of Reggie laughing at his silliness was perfect! They look great too, I especially love Keely’s coloring, she’s so pretty!

    I really can’t trust Deq. Maybe he showed up just to get more drama and another story. Why else show up at the wedding instead of contacting them at any other time?

    Also very interesting to see Reggie’s family. I wonder what’s up with his twin brother, and why he never told Hailey about it.

    I remember that profile pic! Cecily does looks good in blue!

    1. That wedding was a huge mess to stage if I say so myself! There were definitely too many Sims, I think over 60 even.
      Yup, Hailey practically became like a princess marrying such a famous and loaded man Reggie is. And to think she hadn’t heard about him before that infamous meeting in the karaoke bar xD
      It was easier posing everyone than just having them stand there and waiting for them to either run away or perform some weird EA animations, lol. Thank you, I wanted various Sims there to attend and I thought it would be a fun idea to use your and Sempreviva’s ones, as well as EA townies (I picked carefully for celebrities) and of course my beloved Cecily and her family.
      Yes, I thought it would be a fun challenge to try to write the characters like Sempreviva does. Funny thing is I went in game and Rose autonomously started crying, matching the text I’d already had written. She has the over-emotional trait, so probably that’s why.
      I thought that joke with Phil and Keely was so lame. I went to reread some of your early stuff to see if I can distinct something, but I didn’t have a chance as you write so close to the game. So I picked this silly joke instead. The reason why I chose them was because I figured Keely was one of your Sims who could be famous enough to be invited to the wedding and I didn’t have to come up with some story on how she and Reggie met. Of course I had to change their coloring to match my game standards more as I aim for realistic. I think I kept them as close to the original as I could. Also the download link for Keely’s hair didn’t work so I used another hairstyle which I thought was close to hers. When I changed the skin to some “normal color” in CAS, she got that dark brown skintone and I didn’t change it. I thought the light hair and dark skin looked rather nice combined. Reggie laughing at his silliness is just a random animation connected to his good sense of humor trait, but it went well with it.
      Yup, Deq can’t be trusted. I think he was really the best pick for Sam, out of all of his exes. They’re both mean xD
      Reggie’s family is one of the last I created. They are so important and yet I almost forgot about them with all of the mess. Hm… Yeah, Adam and Reggie don’t really get along.
      Thank you! Blue definitely matches her eyes.

  16. You put so much time and effort into the wedding, that’s awesome! it was a nice touch to include the family trees, because otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to visualise who you were talking about and how they were related to our heiress. Speaking of Hailey, I love her dress here.
    It was fab to see sims from others included here! Sometimes I consider putting some of mine up for download, but it would take so much energy I don’t have to do it properly. Maybe some time in the future I’ll do it…

    1. Thank you so much! I’m very glad my effort wasn’t fruitless and is appreciated. The family tree is mainly for me, because I can’t remember it all and it can be hard to visualize, so if it’s hard for me, then for readers it must be a nightmare. I figured no one would be able to get what I was talking about without the family trees.
      I thought Hailey wouldn’t want the cliché long, white dress.
      I had fun including other people’s characters.
      I’d love it if you put up yours so that I could include them, too, next time I have a chance. Myself, I upload all my characters, so anyone can get them. But no pressure 🙂
