Abby Mershon of Minnesota was more than happy to share some of the spotlight of her special day with very special flower girl.
Instead of an adorable little girl in a frilly little dress walking down the isle tossing rose pedals, guests instead got the bride’s adorable 92-year-old grandmother tossing flowers down the isle with her walker.
“I always knew that my grandma would be involved, and I really wanted by grandpa to be my ring bearer as well, but he passed away a year ago. My husband and I asked her together to be our flower girl in front of our entire family. My grandma shrieked at the top of her lungs. It was so sweet. She kept screaming, ‘I’ve never been in a wedding besides my own,” Mershon told ABC News.
The crowd cheered as Georgiana Arlt, a grandmother of 17 and great-grandmother of 16, fulfilled her granddaughter’s wish.
