While Abby Arlt and Dustin Mershon, of Mankato, Minnesota, got their dream wedding, it was the flower girl who stole the show. She was the bride's 92-year-old grandmother, Georgiana Arlt.

Pushing her walker down the grass aisle, she tossed a path of flower petals as guests cheered and applauded. As she finished her duties and sat down, she said with a laugh, "That was hard work!"

Abby Arlt told KARE-TV she always wanted her grandparents to be the flower girl and ring bearer at her wedding. But her grandfather passed away a year ago. However, he gave the groom his blessing just a week before he died.

The flower girl told her granddaughter she had never been in any wedding besides her own, 72 years ago.
