There are various aspects of wedding tradition that seem somewhat outdated in this day and age — a bride vowing to “obey” her husband, for example, or only men giving speeches.
One bride broken with tradition in an absolutely charming way: Lyndsey Raby decided to eschew societal expectations of having young children as her flower girls and ask her four grandmas to take on the role instead.
The Tennessee-based bride asked her two grandmothers, her great-grandmother, and her new husband Tanner’s grandmother to be co-flower girls for her big day on September 22.
90-year-old Kathleen Brown, 70-year-old Joyce Raby, 76-year-old Wanda Grant, and 72-year-old Betty Brown all stepped up to the plate, wearing matching blue lace dresses with jackets.
They carried little white bags filled with white rose petals to scatter down the aisle at the wedding ceremony, which was held at Ocoee Crest in Benton, Tennessee.
Wedding photographer Natalie Caho captured a selection of touching images from the big day, which show all the flower girls are beaming with joy.
“When Lyndsey told me she was having her grandmothers as her flower girls, I was not expecting the level of sass that these girls brought!” Caho told Insider.
