Barbie and Ken Tie the Knot: An Amazing Photo Series Your Kid Will Love

We are entering the season of weddings and our family is gearing up for a busy Spring and Summer filled with the holy matrimony of friends. Despite the travel, the added expense, and the stress of wrangling children during the ceremony or the hassle of finding a babysitter, there’s a part of me that loves to attend weddings.

It’s probably that same part of me that loved to play dress up with my Barbie doll as a little girl and send her walking down the aisle with Ken. Apparently I’m not the only one that loves a good wedding between two crazy dolls in love. Camera savvy Beatrice de Guigne puts the efforts of my 6-year-old amateur wedding planning to shame in her photographic series of Barbie and Ken’s wedding.

She took the photos over the course of three days capturing everything from Barbie and Ken being helped into their wedding ensembles by their bridal party, to the ceremony, to the reception and after party. Her attention to detail is amazing. Have a look:
