An owl ringbearer? Amusing. Very Potteresque and also perfect for Goths. I prefer seeing owls in the woods, myself. Wedding ceremonies are intense enough without having to worry about an owl taking a mid-flight foo-foo on your Aunt Fanny’s head. Or worse dropping the ring and losing it forever. I’ll stick with the cute nephew on this one. Interesting nonetheless.
