On June 3rd, Chase and I photographed Tanner and Morgan Stone's wedding at Southern Woods Plantation in south Georgia. Austin, age seven, was the ring bearer in their wedding. He's also the son of Morgan's older sister, Wendy.
As I was going through the photos of the day, I realized I had multiple shots of Austin that were far too cute not to share. I decided to put together a blog post dedicated to what it means to be an awesome member of a wedding party! Here are the 6 times Austin raised the bar as a ring bearer and got the "job" right.
During the time of groom and groomsmen photos, it was hot and the gnats were abundant. However, Austin made sure to keep everyone laughing and good in spirits with his happy and silly disposition.
As Morgan was coming down the aisle, Tanner's face was lit with joy, love, and happy tears. And standing right beside him was Austin. The expression on Austin's face is worth a thousand words. When I came to this photo, my heart melted!!!!! How stinkin' precious is he?!
Immediately following the ceremony, Morgan, Tanner and their wedding party walked to a secluded area for photos while the guests made their way to the cocktail hour and reception. I was reviewing a photo on my camera when I looked up and noticed Austin walking behind Morgan, carrying her dress for her. Such a little gentleman!
When Morgan took her photo with the groomsmen, we wanted to get at least one playful shot of the group. As soon as I mentioned the word "funny" this was the shot that happened... Austin and Morgan took full advantage of the situation. hehe
Each member of the wedding party was individually introduced at the reception before the bride and groom, including Austin and his sister Allie, a junior bridesmaid. When these two cuties walked onto the dance floor, Austin escorted her like a true southern gentleman.
Morgan and Tanner decided on a sparkler exit for the end of the evening. Austin made sure he was near the end of the line where they would stop for a kiss before getting in their getaway car. ;)
Of course every ring bearer brings something unique and fun to every wedding, but Austin seemed to have it all figured out that day. ;)
To Austin and Allie, you two are awesome!
