We all love weddings for their stunning decorations, fun food, and of course, the beautiful brides and handsome grooms. But there are particular…miniature…wedding attendees that will always have a special place in our hearts: the flower girls and ring bearers. Dressed to the nines for their shining debuts, these mini guests-of-honor never fail to charm the socks off other wedding guests, leaving behind a trail of melted hearts and proud smiles. We’ve compiled some of our favorite images of these little showstoppers taken by our SnapKnot community, and it is with these photos that their adorable performances live on.

“The kids feel pressure too, with their parents and other adults telling them how to behave. When left on their own, they make their own fun and can really bond with the photographer when we show interest in them alone. What kid doesn’t love to be the center of attention? Their parents tell them to stand still and smile. I tell them to act like it’s their day – do whatever you want! Make those funny faces or frowns. Have your photography assistant stay targeted on the bride while you capture the moments that will be really special to the bride, groom, and parents later.”

“The ring bearer and flower girls names are Sam and Amber. These two little angels have grown up together, since birth! Both moms were pregnant together, and both mamas were bridesmaids for the beautiful couple. Amber is just a few weeks older than Sam, but he takes care of her like a true gentleman. At this point in formals, we’d been posing group shots for about 20 minutes when they decided they’d had enough of me and they were going to hightail back to the waiting playground equipment in view of our spot.”
(Above Right) “Every now and then you get an adorable little flower girl who takes her job very seriously! This precious little girl followed the bride around all afternoon and always made sure her dress was properly fluffed. So amazingly cute!”
“This little ring bearer, Connor, couldn’t have been more proud to be a part of Danielle and Collin’s wedding. He was ready for pictures at every second and was always showing off his super-cute beret!”
“Gracie was full of energy, enthusiasm and attitude throughout the day. She could not wait to let loose and have a good time, which her Mom would not allow until the formals were done. Once she got the OK, she was even more fun to shoot. While the bride was fixing her make-up, I looked and Gracie was on the ground under a tree to get out of the sun.”
“These adorable kids were brother and sister and were absolutely the most ideal ring bearer and flower girl ever! When photographing the boy I complimented him on what a great ring bearer he was, and asked him if he had ever done this before (completely joking and just trying to make him laugh). He looks me right in the eye, and with a straight face, says that this is his third time.”
