Flower Girl Kisses Ring Bearer In Wedding Photo, And 5 Other Times Flower Girls Upstaged The Bride — PHOTOS
W.C. Fields is credited for the famous show biz adage, "Never work with animals or children." That’s probably true if you want things to go according to plan—in Hollywood and the rest of life. However, if unintentional hilarity is what you’re after, children are like pure gold. This fact that is especially apparent at weddings, where little flower girls and ring bearers often get the biggest laughs and the most breathless “oohs” and “aahs” (after the bride, maybe). A recent viral photo showing one wedding’s flower girl kissing the ring bearer—at the same moment that the bride kisses the groom, no less—perfectly illustrates how easily adorable children can upstage the most carefully planned wedding. (And no one minds because they are Just. So. Cute.)
The photo was taken at Michelle Hall and Anthony Palmer’s wedding last Saturday in Knoxville, TN, by Leah Bullard of Leah Bullard Photography. Bullard explained to The Huffington Post how the hilarious photo of 4-year-old flower girl Anderson, Hall’s daughter, came about:
I set up the entire wedding party for a formal shot as I do with every wedding, and then asked the bride and groom to kiss. … Since Anderson had been calling herself the bride the whole day, she assumed I was referring to her and went in for a kiss too. It was a memorable moment that had everyone in tears laughing.
Ugh. So stinking cute.

Three-year-old flower girl Grace Van Cutsem was not amused by the 2011 wedding of Prince William to the now-Duchess of Cambridge. The grumpy bridal attendant was so popular that she became a meme in her own right.
