This Ring Bearer Stole The Show At Her Mom's Wedding

Warning: This post will give you ALL the feels.

When Oklahoma couple Bobby Villegas and Kait Villegas-Payne planned their Seattle elopement, they included Villegas-Payne's daughter, Scarlet, in the best way: as ring bearer.

While ring bearers are typically boys — and little girls are often made flower girls by default — the couple gave Scarlet the honor anyway.

"She was the ring bearer because that’s what I had a literal need for," Villegas-Payne told A Practical Wedding. "We didn’t even have a real aisle for anybody to throw petals down on. We did need somebody to hold our rings."

"I love the show Lost, I love the idea of 'constants,' and I mostly love that Scarlet has always been mine," she said.

"I have had a unique opportunity to be able to grow up along with her because I had her at a young age."

Seven-year-old Scarlet looked very fancy on the big day.

Villegas-Payne told BuzzFeed Life how they put together her outfit. "Both blazers she wore (the one for the wedding and the one on the ferry) were H&M, her undershirt was J.Crew, pants we just got at Target, bow tie was from Beautiful Idiot Clothing, shoes were Dotty Shoes," she said. The hairpiece was made by Butter and Bloom and Off White Makeup & Hair did her updo.
