Jenna Mansell was heartbroken when her brother told her that he would no longer be able to attend her wedding. His wife had given birth only two weeks before the wedding date, which meant that they wouldn't be able to fly all the way to California from Maryland for the big day. Then, the panic set in, because if her brother wasn't going to be there, that meant that his son, their ring bearer, wouldn't be either.
In a last-minute frenzy, Jenna and her future husband, Austin Mansell, brainstormed what to do about the situation. And the idea they came up with was brilliant--and hilarious.

They asked their two close friends, Connie Shin and AJ Hartman, who also happen to be a couple, if they would be willing to step in as flower girl and ring bearer. Jenna told The Huffington Post, "We hadn’t originally planned on having a flower girl in the wedding, but Connie had been advocating to be the flower girl as a joke for months." Needless to say: be careful what you wish for!
As if the idea of having two adults play those roles wasn't funny enough, things really got priceless when AJ donned the hat that the couple had originally purchased for Jenna's nephew, transforming the ring bearer into the ring bear.

In the end, everything fell right into place, even though Jenna of course still missed her brother and nephew. She said that Connie and AJ "both looked so hilarious when it all came together that it really helped me keep my mind off missing my brother and nephew. Our guests thought they were so funny, and it made for some really amazing photos.”
It's so sweet that their friends were such good sports about helping out in the wedding, and we can't get enough of the adorable pictures that they got out of it too!
