A Ring Bearer Who Wants to Play the Drums

Our ring bearer will be our adorable godson, Gavin. He will almost be four at our wedding, and has had some experience being a ring bearer before. However, when I asked him if we wanted to be our ring bearer he simply said, "No. I want to play the drums."

We have ordered our ring bowl from Paloma's Nest, and I'm hoping he can carry it down the aisle without drop kicking it. Or there was the idea of having him ring a bell and say, "The bride is coming!" But we're afraid he might be a little too nervous to do that.

Here are some pictures of our precious godson...

This one is from a time when "Uncle Nate" was trying to rationalize with him at the zoo. Mmmhmm. Wonder how that turned out...

Here we are at my law school graduation!

And again at graduation. Poor "Uncle Nate" was in charge of chasing him down the entire morning as they were waiting for the festivities to begin.

Here we are at Rays fan fest!

I'm so excited he will get to be a part of our special day. We just still have to figure out the details. Is your ring bearer doing anything special or unique in your ceremony?


  1. I LOVE that first picture of Gavin! That's awesome!

  2. That made me laugh out loud! "wants to play the drums?" hahahaha

  3. I think you should let him play the drums. How much more special and memorable would your wedding be?!?!?!?!? LOL ;)

    I do love that picture of him and Nathan at the zoo.

  4. Oh my goodness... he is SO adorable. Wow. Too cute! I am not sure if my ring bearer is going to do anything special or not. But, I think we have some time to figure it out still :)

  5. he totally needs a set of inflatable drums for the reception! sooo cute!
