Ok, this is serious. I need you to observe the incredible beauty of these children.
Meet Stevie and Genevieve, 4 and 2, respectively.
I have been a Nanny with their family for over 2 years now (so yes, when I began, she was not even rolling over yet, and I was bottle-feeding her every night right before I left)...
As you can imagine, they are such lights in my life. Not even just the kids-- the whole family has been an incredible blessing. I won't even go into it, but believe me! Because of the strong connection Brandon and I both have built with them, we have asked for these two darlings to be our Flower Girl and Ring Bearer. It doesn't get better than that.
Genevieve has a sense of humor like you wouldn't imagine, and will break your heart:
Stevie is the most dapper little thing you've ever seen, and is 5 in less than two months (Bah!):
She'll play on PhotoBooth anyday, but apparently will make the same face the only time she's not supposed to. Please ignore my childish ways:
Her dress, from Strasburg Children is actually true white (as is mine), and she will have a sash out of the same moss green fabric that I made mine:
I asked Genevieve which she would rather have -- a halo made of Baby's Breath, or these. She flipped about the flowers, that I will make myself:
Her little ballet slippers, also from Strasburg:
As the floors are wooden and we aren't using an aisle runner, we're not expecting Gen to throw flowers. I love the idea of a dried lavender bouquet instead (as will her mother, who is a serious LSU fan...), via Martha Stewart Weddings:
She asked that Stevie don a black suit (as the groomsmen will be wearing) with a green bow-tie (that the groomsmen will not be wearing). My favorite part?? Stevie, who capitalizes on preppy styles and parting his hair on the side, is begging me to wear his hair in a fohawk that day! Bah! His mom says no way in the world, but I can't help thinking it'd be pretty funny...
