They Finally Said, “I Do”

After much cavorting around the house, Rapunzel and Sir John (aka Flynn Rider) were finally wed in the living room on a wintery day in 2012. Perhaps you will be bored by my many photos, but I was so delighted by their union (and by the adorable wedding planners) that I just have to fill up my blog with snapshots today.

The Guests Take their Seats…

…and talk amongst themselves.

The Bride and her Attendants Prepare in the Dressing Quarters

(At first, Lia was withholding the bouquet. We asked why? She thought “the bride receives the bouquet after the wedding… if she does a good job.” Viv and I explained that, unlike a ballet performance, Rapunzel should carry the bouquet down the aisle with her. The flowers would simply be a beautiful adornment… not a reward, ahem. She was shocked by her misconception and quickly decided she’d rather “do it the way it’s usually done.” Rapunzel received her bouquet gratefully.)

Cue the wedding music!

(Selections from the Suzuki 4 Cassette Tape: some peppy, some slow.)

The wedding party enters.

Sir John (aka Flynn Rider) eagerly awaits his bride…

Everyone oos and ahs at the “Flower Girl Mouse”. And then…

Father Bunny gives away his daughter… his dear Rapunzel, who did not inherit his long ears or long feet, but did turn out with long hair. Sir John is delighted.

You may kiss the bride…

…and carry her down the aisle. (An unconventional pair!)

Just Married!

      Yikes! NO! I didn’t even think about the fact that I implied that! HA! No no no no. It’s just an old cassette tape we still have from my old Suzuki days. :) Viv is doing splendidly in Level B of the Keys for the Kingdom series. :)

    I am laughing so hard about the bouquet. And the prominence of the flower girl, clearly an essential piece of any wedding. : )

    Looks very similar to what goes on at my house every day with my two girls (ages almost 5 and almost 3)!

    I Love it! I have one little girl sandwiched between two sweet little boys, and while yes we love to play with our little figurines, all I could do was chuckle because I thought…when her little guy gets a little older and adds his point of view into the wedding one of the wedding guests will probably be tackled or something like that! He He!!

    It does my heart good to see and read that there are children who know how to pretend and live out a story. My last few years of teaching gave me a painful awareness that so many children have no idea how to play.
