BLACK AND WHITE FRIDAY - The Flower Girl Shines

Amanda and William invited Ellie to be the flower girl for their beautiful fresh wedding and it was an amazing choice!  This 3 year old rocked the role like you wouldn't believe! Elements of Light Montana_1297Elements of Light Montana_1297

How a three-year-old can be cute and elegant all at the same time is beyond me.

Ellie's mom is one of my best friends.  Sadly, she was not able to attend this wedding because she and her husband run a catering company and their business was having its biggest event of the year that day, as well as providing the food for Amanda and William's wedding.  So I was assigned to document each and every bit of Ellie's princess day - and believe me, it was a princess day beyond all measure for that adorable little girl.

There were preparations with the big girls:

Ellie even got her own little fashion shoot while the big people were doing bridal party photos.

And then of course there was the big and important job of preparing the isle for the beautiful bride!  This was the hard part for sure, and we had to practice it several times.  Each flower petal needed to be in a very precise place.

It was a long time waiting for all the official business at the front of the church . . . .

What a great privilege it was to capture this wedding from the perspective of the flower girl.  She is one of my very favorite little people, and I am so pleased I will always have the memory of this day with her.
