personal - GemStone IV Family Issues

Over the years I have been to so many weddings, festivals and other gatherings that have been no more than a footnote in my diaries.

I have decided to record these events from this time forward so that there is a formal record for posterity. When memory fails, the written word will prevail! On occasion, I will record my own feelings ( i.e. those of Bremerial's alter ego) along with Bremerial's own thoughts.

NB: OOC - Any logs included will be published using notepad which should make the information accessible to most.

Time: 9:30 p.m. Eastern time

Date: Today is Feastday, day 5 of the month Eorgaen in the year 5109

Location: Cathedral Wedding Area

General Info: Krystanne and Caleanon will affirm the joining of their lives together in marriage through the making vows to each other, in the presence of their friends and family. Guests with invitations should proceed to their nearest wedding portal just prior to the start of the ceremony.

This will be an outdoor wedding in the evening hours, so guests should dress and plan accordingly.

My attire

I can think of few occasions and few people who chould possibly induce me to wear a dress. These two are two such people.
You are wearing an enruned leaf green dress, an enruned diamond necklace, a dainty brocade sash, some enruned crushed silk gloves.


- Caleanon -
You see Great Lord Caleanon Adair the Weaponmaster.
He appears to be a Giantman of the T'Kirem Clan.
He is tall and appears to be young and robust. He has piercing stormy grey eyes and golden brown skin. He has long, dark ebony hair falling to his shoulders in tousled waves. He has a square-jawed face, a classical nose and a broad chest. He has a jagged, silvery grey scar running down the length of his face.
He is wearing a burnished copper leaf locket, an ancient T'kirem talisman, an onyx-trimmed black silk jacket, a perfect white orchid with brilliant amethyst veins, a crisp white linen shirt with polished onyx buttons, some elegant black spidersilk trousers, and a pair of softened black leather shoes.

You see Great Lady Krystanne the Sorceress.
She appears to be a Faendryl Dark Elf.
She is taller than average and appears to be young and sprightly. She has sparkling violet eyes and fair skin. She has very long, silky brunette hair that flows gracefully down her back with thin tendrils falling delicately around her face. She has a dainty face, a small nose and high cheekbones.
She is holding a fragrant bridal bouquet of amethyst-tipped white orchids tied with flowing gossamer ribbons in her left hand.
She is wearing a veil of gossamer dusted with diamond crystals, a pair of diamond earrings, an onyx-clasped spidersilk backpack, a strapless white silk gown draped with soft flowing scarves lightly dusted with shimmering diamond crystals, a waist-chain of intertwining silver leaves, a diamond encrusted thigh-band, a delicate gold dolphin anklet, and a small diamond toe-ring.

CEREMONY - The ceremony highlights are recorded below. Full unedited records are also available.

An attendant steps forth from the wedding tent and says, "Very good! Caleanon told us to expect your arrival!" Grabbing your arm, he leads you inside.

[Cliff Overhang]
The path stops midway to the top of the cliff, where a large man-made overhang provides a majestic view of the ocean below. From this height, the rocks on either side of the cliff surrounding the beach take the shape of arms cradling Nature's beauty. Exotic flowers of incredible beauty surround the area.
The cliff wall has been carved into a shallow cave leaving a large, half-exposed boulder shaped into an altar. You also see a shining white marble altar, a steep path and several rows of cushioned shell-shaped chairs.

Also here: Renowned Lady Sraven who is sitting, Alornen, Great Lord Caleanon

The delicate trilling of flutes rises from somewhere unseen over the side of the cliffs.

A pointy-eared lass with long tresses skips down the aisle, sprinkling fragrant orchid petals at your feet.

A tremendous, crashing wave echoes against the cliff walls, heralding the arrival of the bride.

Caleanon clasps Krystanne's hand gently and pulls her into his tight embrace.

A cascade of melodious trumpeting rings out as a well-dressed groomsmen briefly appears and announces, "Hear ye! Hear ye! The ceremony is about to begin!"

Krystanne wraps Caleanon in a tender embrace.
Krystanne beams at Caleanon in admiration and with a loving gaze.
The pair arrange themselves at the foot of the altar and glance upward at Alyisa.

Alyisa softly says, "It is an honor and privilege to be with you on this day of joy and love. We welcome you Caleanon and Krystanne to this moment in your lives and to the places you've found in each other's hearts. We congratulate you on the journey of your lives, and on the strength and the courage it has taken for each of you to make your way to this place"

Alyisa softly says, "Please have a seat everyone."

Alyisa bows to Caleanon.
Alyisa bows to Krystanne.
Alyisa recites softly: "I present to you the Best Man, Lord Alornen."

(Alornen clears his throat.)
Alornen says, "Ahem..... ermm...."
Alornen exclaims, "Good evening, Ladies and Gentlemen!"

(Alornen motions for everyone to respond.)
Krystanne gives Caleanon a loving gaze, and the two smile at each other widely.

Alornen says, "As I was saying..."
Sraven tilts her head toward Alornen, and as their eyes meet, the point of one of Sraven's ears twitches slightly in time with Alornen's breathing.

Alornen exclaims, "Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Bridesmaids. Women friends of bridesmaids. Future bridesmaids!"
Alornen exclaims, "I am so glad to be standing up in front of you today! I think I've taught Krystanne and Caleanon well enough that they probably expect me to stand up in front of you all today and tell some pretty bad jokes, maybe resort to cheap parlor tricks to get a few laughs."

Caleanon adopts an agreeable expression.

Alornen says, "Maybe say something about pirates, or invisible skeletons. Or invisible pirate skeletons. But I shall not put you through it. Over the last couple years I've had the privilege to bear witness to a beautiful friendship unfold. And for that, breathtaking as it was, I was rarely speechless."

Alornen says, "But I stand before you here TODAY, searching for the words that could somehow do Caleanon and Krystanne, and the occasion, the substantial enough honor they deserve. And I just about am. Speechless, that is."
(Alornen whispers to Caleanon, "I know, weird eh?")
Alornen exclaims, "Anyway!"
(Alornen clears his throat.)
Caleanon adopts an agreeable expression.

Alornen says, "I think it is only fitting that I say this, and simply this. I am Alornen, the best man of this good looking guy here, Caleanon. And fiercely proud friend of the most beautiful Lady I have ever seen here today, Krystanne."
Krystanne hugs Alornen, who wraps her in a warm embrace.

Caleanon gives Alornen a friendly hug.
Alornen says, "And I can't think of a more beautiful sight, or a bigger honor. That's enough out of me."
Speaking heartily to Alornen, Caleanon says, "Thanks, Lornie.

Alyisa recites softly:
"We welcome the lovely Lady Qitha, sister of the bride, and Matron of honor."

Qitha recites softly:
"Krystanne and Caleanon
Today you both start a new beginning
One filled with Hope, Love and Promise"

Qitha recites softly:
"Marriage is a commitment to life and to each other
With each day it can bring you two closer"

Qitha recites softly:
"It is at no time taking the other for granted
The courtship should not end with the honeymoon
It should continue through the years"

Qitha recites softly:
"It is standing together facing each battle
It is speaking words of appreciation for each other
And demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways
It is having the capacity to forgive and forget"

Shimmering candles create latticed patterns of silver-flamed light that span the length of the white sandy beach.

Qitha recites softly:
"It is not only marrying the right partner
It is also in being the right partner"

Qitha recites softly:
"To grow together, never apart
That your love grows stronger and deeper
That from today till forever
That your both are as Happy as you are here today"

Qitha recites softly:
"Krystanne and Caleanon
May the joy you feel today
Always be as great in the years to come"

Krystanne hugs Qitha, who wraps her in a warm embrace.
Qitha recites softly:
"Also and by far not the least advice.
Speaking softly to Caleanon, Qitha says, "Watch over sis or better watch out for mom."
Ernesta laughs!

Mother of the Bride

Alyisa recites softly: "I now present to you the revered Mother of the Bride.
The exquisite chair-woman of The Watchkeepers.
The Grand Lady Ernesta!"

Qitha curtsies to Alyisa.
Sweeping her arm outward, Alyisa bows low in a grand fashion before Ernesta.
Speaking softly to Ernesta, Alyisa asks, "Who gives this bride in marriage?"
Speaking softly to Alyisa, Ernesta says, "I do without a second thought, he is perfect for my daughter."
Krystanne beams happily at Ernesta!

Pale beams of moonlight bathe the white sand in warm luminescence, with each ray pulsing like a beating heart.

Krystanne tilts her head and tosses an inviting wink in Caleanon's direction.

Speaking softly to Caleanon, Ernesta says, "Do not make me regret this."
Caleanon agrees with Ernesta.
Ernesta winks at Caleanon.
Krystanne hugs Ernesta, who wraps her in a warm embrace.
Ernesta curtsies to Alyisa.

Alyisa recites softly:
"We will now have a musical duet by Lady Dessedemona and Lord Galenblackbard"

Galenblackbard slings an elegant rosewood mandolin inlaid with polished silver music notes and slightly stained with ale off from over his shoulder. Galenblackbard carefully checks the strings of his mandolin, plucking them lightly and adjusting the tension until the sound is perfectly pitched. Galenblackbard picks up his mandolin and strikes the opening chords of a joyful tune.

A pair of gleaming white doves swoop down and around Dessedemona and Galenblackbard and take off with the ocean serving as dark, glistening backdrop.

Dessedemona sings:
"We circle round touching constantly
Dancing near almost in my reach
All I've hoped all I've dared to dream
Is this love all that it seems"

Galenblackbard sings:
"It is all that it seems!"
Galenblackbard sings:
"Come to me in circles of light
Circles of Light..."

Dessedemona sings:
"You come to me in circles of light
Free my soul teach me how to fly
Fly high through the night
Circling, in endless flight"

Galenblackbard brings the joyful melody strongly to the fore, emphasizing each note with ringing clarity over the complicated, mobile background harmony.

Galenblackbard's harmony dances about the melody, intertwining about it with pure, shining notes.

Dessedemona sings:
"And when we think that all is said and done
We circle round again we've just begun
Round and round time and again
Circling, no beginning no end"

Galenblackbard sings:
No beginning no end"

Dessedemona sings:
"You give I take I give you recieve
Loving here held in your sweet peace
Love it gives no reason no rhyme
Timeless, time after time"

Galenblackbard embellishes his hushed song with an exquisite fall of notes as pure as raindrops across chimes.

Dessedemona sings:
"I give you love it circles back to me
In your heart my heart is held so free
Fly high across the sky
Circling, together we fly"

Galenblackbard plays with a quiet beauty, the muted notes subtle and yet profoundly effecting.

Galenblackbard sings:
"And when we think that all is said and done
We circle round again, weve just begun.
Round and round time and again
Circling, no beginning no end"

Dessedemona sings:
"And when we think that all is said and done
We circle round again we've just begun
Round and round time and again
Circling, no beginning no end"

Galenblackbard sings:
Time and again..."

Galenblackbard embellishes his hushed song with an exquisite fall of notes as pure as raindrops across chimes.

Dessedemona sings:
No beginning no end"

Galenblackbard strums one final soft chord then allows his mandolin to fall silent.

Alyisa recites softly:
"Lady Krystanne do you have an offering to the gods?"

Krystanne recites:
"Mistress Oleani, may the warmth of your love envelop us,
Granting the wishes of our hearts.
Bless us with a family to love and care for,
To cherish and nurture.
We pray for harmony as we forever grow young together."

Krystanne put a golden Oleani pendant on an altar.
A gradual, luminous haze trails up from Krystanne's feet, all the way to the crown of her head, washing her in blossoming silver-gold light.

Alyisa turns to face Caleanon.

Alyisa recites softly:
"Lord Caleanon do you have an offering to the gods?"

Caleanon nods.
Caleanon removes a golden Phoen circlet from in his black silk jacket.

Caleanon recites heartily:
"Radiant Phoen, me offers ye dis circlet as a symbol o' da bond we forge t'day.
Me asks ye t' bless our nuptials wit' yer favor.
Grant us eternal love an' a family t' carry our names through da ages.
We pray for harmony as we forever grow young together."

Caleanon gazes up into the heavens.
Caleanon put a golden Phoen circlet on an altar.
Rays of golden moonlight descend from the sky, casting a radiant glow around the altar.
Krystanne beams at Caleanon in admiration and with a loving gaze.

Alyisa put an ancient bone-spined tome in her spidersilk backpack.
Caleanon gives Krystanne a loving gaze, and the two smile at each other widely.

Alyisa recites softly:
"For those that want to join us in the sealing of this offering
Please kneel and join us in prayer."

{The guests kneel and pray}

Alyisa stands up.

A soft glow emanates from the altar, surrounding it like a golden sunburst. As the glow slowly fades, a pure white aura sparkles around the two items on the altar. Alyisa bows respectfully, her eyes fixed firmly on the ground.

Alyisa softly says, "Thank you I think our prayer were heard."
