Perry the Ring Bearer

Thursday, August 13, 2015
It is wedding season. And this year we had an extra special wedding to attend. My sister Caroline got married a couple weeks ago to a wonderful guy named Nathan. They met at Lee Univeristy and the wedding was appropriately there on campus in the Lee Chapel.

Caroline was a stunning bride. So proud of the beautiful women she has become inside and out. 

She asked Perry to be her ring bearer. When she asked me back at Christmas if I thought he would do it, my response was "he will do something..." I really thought he would do well, but you just never know when you are dealing with a two year old though.

But, he did awesome. And is he not the cutest ring bearer ever?!? He looked so handsome in his tan linen suit. He got no nap at all and made it like a trooper all the through the wedding and to the very end of the reception. He was having too much fun to care about sleeping. Cake and candy helped too.

The plan was that he would walk down the aisle with the two flower girls, one on each side. Once down the aisle they would all three come and sit with parents instead of trying to stand at the front through the ceremony. It all worked perfectly. We had a couple hours for Perry and the girls to play and get to know each other before the ceremony began. He warmed right up to them and didn't want to leave their sides the rest of the night. The girls in turn doted on P and took good care of him. Which was awesome and gave me a little break from single parenting P since Andrew had to stay in Huntsville for work.

After the ceremony we went outside for dinner and dancing. It was hot because well it was July in Tennessee. Thankfully there was some inside space too where you could get a reprieve from the heat. P lost his bowtie and vest by the end. He got just a little too hot busting moves on the dance floor. :)

Caroline and Nathan got sent off in a vintage car by the light of sparklers. It was a beautiful wedding and a great time celebrating what God is doing in their lives and their happily ever after.
