Last week, Caiden was a ring-bearer at my husband’s best friend’s beach wedding at Casa del Mar in Santa Monica. I have to admit…I was hesitant about having him be part of it, because I didn’t think he was ready…
boy was I wrong!
I didn’t know how I was going to explain to him that he has to walk down the aisle without me and I was nervous that all the unfamiliar faces would scare him. The last thing I was wanted was for me to walk down the aisle..before the bride…to get a crying baby!
But the groom and the talented wedding team over at Bob Gail Special Events had a surprise for him to walk down the aisle with…a giant balloon!! When they told me about this big balloon…I didn’t expect it to be twice his size…we all thought he was going to fly away! Balloons are really magical…it kept Caiden entertained (for the most part)…he started to get cranky because he wanted to walk towards the ocean. But he did his duty and walked down the aisle with the beautiful flower-girls, didn’t complain about his outfit and kept all the five pieces on…which by-the-way I had just ordered online that same week. 🙂 I’m in love with the vintage knicker outfit he wore…found here. I think I have to take fun photos with it before it gets too small.
Till then…hoping to post more gorgeous pics of the wedding soon!
