Its a beautiful day for a wedding. The sun is shining, the beautiful bride and groom are finishing up their vows and then– out of nowhere– a streak of white tears across the scene and the wedding guests explode into laughter. It’s the flower girl. And she’s making a break for it.
It all happened at a recent wedding in Melbourne, Australia. Tom and Katie Quirk were saying their vows in front of the gorgeous Albert Park Lake when– suddenly– their flower girl, 3 year old Chloe, decided she wanted to swim and dashed across the background, headed straight for the lake. Luckily, her mom grabbed her before she made it to the water, but the image of the little girl sprinting through the vows (with Mom racing behind her) had the whole wedding in tears of laughter.
In an interview with Daily Mail Australia, the bride explained what had happened from her point of view. “I was facing the direction Chloe was running from, but because I was looking at Tom all I saw was a flash of white all of a sudden in my peripheral vision” she said. “And then I saw my sister-in-law running past and I was like, ‘Did that really happen?'”
When asked how Chloe felt about going viral, bride Katie laughed, explaining that Chloe finds the video of her stunt hilarious, but Katie is looking forward to the day when Chloe is old enough to be embarrassed by it: “I cannot wait until her 18th and 21st birthdays to wheel this out on her!” But Katie doesn’t harbor any bad feelings about it. “She’s an absolute scream,” she said of Chloe, “we love her to death.” And she’s happy for the video from her wedding to go viral. “From my point of view, with all the bad news in the world, if that can make people laugh and smile, that’s great.”
