Hello and welcome to ThreeChannels.

From Bible Bearer to Wedding Singer

For all my trepidations regarding my brother’s wedding and my children’s role therein, the event went quite swimmingly!

Edward clung to his Bible throughout the entire event like a tiny evangelist.


He carried the Word reverently down the aisle, up onto the stage, and stood, beaming, next to the bride and groom.   We motioned him down, and he looked a tad hurt to leave the stage but protested in no way.  Whew!


At the last minute, the child who initially planned to be a ring bearer, became a Best Man instead, and his cousin was named groom’s ring bearer.  Minutes before the wedding, however, this cousin declared she would not be a ring bearer and must serve as Maid of Honor.  The wedding coordinator looked down at the jumping, jittering mass of six flower girls and picked, at random perhaps or potentially for her certain degree of serenity, Sue.


So my tiny Sue got to bear the ring down the aisle, arm in arm with her big brother, who was cool with it all except he got the grandmother’s flower instead of the correct boutonniere and it had pearls and a bow on it, and his tie was a zip-on.  (That’s just not cool when you’re nine!)


At the reception, Edward got all hopped up on cling peaches and a spoonful of wedding cake icing and became what could be a foreshadowing of things to come: A Wedding Singer.

I love the photos. Looks like a good time was had by all. I love the askew tie, he fits the wedding singer image to a tee.

Darling Edward. I just know that we could have some out of this world conversations together. My kind of kid!
