Weddings are usually happy occasions – even if not everything goes according to plan. While L.A. Clippers player Matt Barnes waited for his bride Gloria Govan to walk down the aisle on Sunday, one of their twin boys had a mini-meltdown.

Barnes, 33, posted an Instagram video of his son Carter, 4½, throwing down the flowers he was carrying as he walked across a bed of rose petals ahead of his Basketball Wives star mom. (Watch the clip below.)

Despite the tantrum, the rest of Sunday’s celebration at the Bacara Resort in Santa Barbara, Calif., was a happy occasion. “This day will go down in history as one of the greatest days ever!!!” the bride Tweeted before slipping into a strapless Inbal Dror gown for the sunset service.

After a romantic seaside ceremony, the 300 guests – including Carter’s twin brother Isaiah (who completed his journey down the aisle with a smile and flowers in hand), Barnes’s teammates Blake Griffin, Ryan Hollins, Willie Green and groomsman DeAndre Jordan – were treated to an elegant five-course dinner in the resort’s ballroom.

The special day was a long time coming for the couple, who called off their first wedding back in August 2010.

Govan told Vibe of their decision, “Marriage is something that should not be rushed into.”
