TOO CUTE: Boy stands up as best man while dad is in Afghanistan

DE PERE, Wis. (WBAY) – Oliver Montie is not even two-years-old, but he’s already stood up as best man at a wedding.

Oliver filled his dad’s shoes and stood up at the wedding of Jonathon Albers and Jennifer Weber at Life Church in De Pere. Oliver’s dad, Sgt. Jacob Montie, couldn’t be at the ceremony. He’s serving in Afghanistan with Wisconsin’s 127th Infantry.

Groom Jonathon Albers said no one else but 22-month-old Oliver could stand in the place of his best friend.

Oliver, ever the dapper Best Man, walked down the aisle with the Maid of Honor on one hand and his mom Liz on the other hand.

Instead of champagne, Oliver toasted the couple with a sippy cup of milk. He danced the night away at the reception.
