The ring bearer didn't exactly make it down the whole aisle, but he did put in a brief appearance for his fans.
The flower girl delicately placed about 5 flower petals strategically in the aisle and proceeded to stand as directed-- success!
Here they are "rehearsing" the night before.
With this face, I couldn't be too upset that he didn't fulfil his duties ;)
We have another wedding this summer as well-- Aunt Jessie's! Alex will be the flower girl, and Derek will be a nuisance. Ah, but there will be lots of family around to get stuck with the nuisance so I can go stick my tongue under the chocolate fountain.
What? No chocolate fountain?
I retract my statement. No more weddings this summer.
