We’ve all been to a wedding where young flower girls play starring roles, leaving the adults so nervous about what could possibly go wrong. During this particular ceremony there was a sudden hold up. One frightened little flower girl comes charging down the aisle in tears then moments later, without losing a bit of composure, some slightly older kids march with confidence to show us all how it’s done.
