When Matt Jacobi and Nick Caprio couldn’t find the perfect Barbie doll set for Jacobi’s 8-year-old niece, they made their own.

The two Arizona men are getting married in May, with Natalie serving as one of their flower girls, according to ABC 15 in Phoenix.

They wanted to give her a Barbie wedding set with two grooms, so they created their own using two Ken dolls.

Jacobi posted a photo of their custom creation on Instagram with a plea to Mattel.

“We had a difficult time finding a same sex wedding set to give to my niece for her 8th birthday. She and her little sister are flower girls in our upcoming May wedding,” Jacobi wrote.
