Here come the "ring bears"
My little cousin Alex got married Friday night! Congratulations to he and his sweet, beautiful bride Lindsey! Eli and Cooper were the "ring bears", as they kept calling themselves. We weren't sure if they were actually going to do it, but they did so much better than I expected! They were so cute in their little suits with their special pillows- I even started tearing up when they started down the aisle! The wedding was at the Hermitage (home of Andrew Jackson for you non-Tennesseans) and was supposed to be outside in the side garden, which was amazingly beautiful, but right before the ceremony was to begin, God had other plans- and the rains came pouring down. They moved everybody to the tiny auditorium inside the museum and had the ceremony there. So Eli and Cooper only had to walk about 10 feet down the aisle instead of the original 50 or so in the garden, which meant they had way less time to fall flat on their face and start screaming or start chasing each other around in circles, crashing in to a candle along the edge of the aisle, setting an elderly lady's dress ablaze. (yes, these thoughts were going through my mind- they're only 2!) We had at least taken most of the pictures outside that afternoon. Other than the rain, everything was wonderful and beautiful and sweet, just as weddings are supposed to be!
