83 Year-Old Flower Girl Steals The Show At Granddaughter’s Wedding
Most brides are furious when they are outshone at their own wedding. For Brenna Klemen, however, she would not have it any other way.
When Brenna married Brock Kendall back in April, she knew she wanted her 83 year-old grandmother to play a major role in the wedding. While at work as an ICU nurse, Brenna talked to a patient who inspired her to give her grandmother a very unusual role in her nuptials.
“I was taking care of a very sick elderly woman who told me the story how she was a flower girl for her grandchild,” Brenna explained.
Brenna absolutely loved the idea for her own wedding day, and her grandmother, who prefers to be unnamed, was all for it as well!
“[Grandma] was very emotional,” Brenna said. “She was almost in tears because she wanted to make sure she did OK on my special day. ”
On the actual wedding day, grandma did more than just ok, as she completely stole the show! All eyes were on her as she walked down the aisle, and the incredible moment was captured by wedding photographer Thomas Felts in images that have since gone viral.
“Every time she threw more petals in the air, our family cheered louder,” Brenna said, adding that all of her wedding guests had huge smiles on their faces. This is definitely a wedding that nobody in attendance will ever forget!
While everyone loved the moment, nobody was prouder than Brenna’s grandfather, who told the photographer, “That’s my flower girl.”
The photos have since gone viral, touching the hearts of people all over the globe.
“I have learned from my grandmother that life is too short to dwell on the negatives. As she would say: ‘Oh hell, oh well’ and ‘Happiness is a choice,’” Brenna said. “She is my inspiration, and I hope that she can inspire you too — one flower petal at a time.”
We’re so glad to see that Brenna got the wedding of her dreams, with a little help from her grandma!
