Emma was to be a flower girl at Jennifer’s upcoming wedding to fiance Trevor York at White Oaks resort in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., and the Colemans wanted to do something special.
“We prepared for a few months to do this,” Melanie said, adding it was Emma’s idea. “When I thought we might do a speech for them, Emma said we should do something more special. A speech wasn’t good enough for cousin Jen.”
“Adorable Flower Girl Performs ‘Love Is An Open Door’ With Her Mom” has pulled in 406,000 views so far.
“The Life of the Beard” — about Mitchell Reilly’s aborted attempt at growing a beard — has gathered nearly 317,000 views on YouTube since it was uploaded Sept. 29 and also got a mention in Huffington Post.
A montage of grooms seeing their brides for the first time, posted in January, has racked up 2.3 millionhits and also features Jen and Trevor.
“With that (singing performance) Mark and I just did our best to capture the wholething,” said Nick Mirka, who co-owns Mitchell Reilly with Mark Rauwerda. “It was phenomenal.”
“When the grooms montage went viral, we were kind of excited for us,” Mirka said. “But when this latest one did, Emma’s mom keeps giving us updates on how excited and blown away she is.”
“That for us is what we’re most excited about with this and that it’s also building up the confidence of a seven-year-old girl.”
