“Do anything rather than marry without affection.”

[[Jane Austen]]

 

1809

 

The late summer in the Orenian Empire was always a sweltering season; however, it always offered the most scenic views of sunsets and sunrises.  This particular morning, the sun’s rays donned a peachy hue and the sky displayed a gentle blue.  The nocturnal music of the crickets shifted into the soft warble of songbirds as dawn arrived, bringing with it a grand day of celebration and merriment; a wedding between the Ducal Houses of Helvets and d’Arkent would be had.

The Wedding of d’Arkent and Helvets

 

It is with great pleasure and joy for the families of d’Arkent and Helvets to announce that the firstborn son of Alexander d’Arkent and heir to the Duchy of Sunholdt: Lord Peter Alexander, shall be united in matrimony to the firstborn daughter to Henry Helvets, the late Duke of Cathalon: Lady Margaux Renee.

 

By the summer’s end of 1809, on Tobias’ Bounty, the pair shall be wedded within the Providence Cathedral.  It is asked that all in attendance dress appropriately for the occasion and remain respectful during the ceremony, and save their excitement for the celebrations to occur afterward.

 

A formal reception shall be held within the Augustine Gardens to celebrate the union.  Once the day has concluded, friends of the Ducal families shall be welcomed to an afterparty at the Sunholdt estate.
