Handfasting

Today was the handfasting ceremony between Miss Gabrielle Riel, Duchess of Carntaigh, and Miss Azuel Draken. The ceremony was in the chapel on Her Grace's estate of Carntaigh. I had never been to such a ceremony before...and it was just as well that I decided to see this one from a distance, as the entire sim crashed just prior to the start.

A restart, some furious relogging, and a short time later, with some of the guests thoughtfully occupying spots in Victoria City to observe from a distance, the ceremony got underway.

Sir JJ Drinkwater, resplendent in his kilt, escorted Miss Riel, lovely in white, down the aisle.

Making their way down the aisle...

...and greeting guests and well-wishers...

...and finally making it to the altar.



The attendants wore blue and red.

Deacon Hypatia Dejavu officiated, with Miss Draken on the left, beautiful in blue and white, and Miss Riel on the right.

Several Caledonian guests were kind enough to repeat the ceremony, line by line, on ISC, for the benefit of those who could not attend, or were kind enough to not crash the sim a second time.

Thank you for your wonderful post Miss Jameson! And I saw those green dots sitting on Mr. Epsilon's lot in Vic City! I can not put my appreciation into words to you and everyone that attended the ceremony.

Sincerely,
Gabrielle Riel

Allow me to add my thanks to those of my Lady wife. I must admit to some surprise that the sim did not crash again, but was too preoccupied to think about it for some reason!

Sincerely,
Azul Draken
