Lyndsey Raby from Tennessee in the US and her new husband, Tanner, said their “I do’s” in a beautiful ceremony last month, Romper reports.

To make their day extra special, the pair decided to include their respective grandmothers in the ceremony.

“I knew as soon as I was engaged, I wanted to involve my grandmothers,” Lyndsey told the Huffington Post.

The gorgeous flower girls included Tanner’s gran Joyce Raby (70), Lyndsey’s two grandmothers, Betty Brown (72) and Wanda Grant (76), and her great-grandmother 90-year-old Kathleen Brown.

Lyndsey went on to reveal that the matriarchs were ecstatic to be part of the wedding day.

“I do believe they were more excited than my bridesmaids,” Lyndsey went on to say.

Wedding photographer Natalie Caho took to Instagram to share the beautiful images.

“I’ve seen a lot of cute flower girls in my day, but these four gals take the cake,” she captioned her post.

“Most girls are lucky to even have one grandmother present.

“The fact that [Lyndsey] had four was a big deal that she wanted to savour.”

The new bride went on to say that she felt honoured to have them at the wedding and encourages other couples to do the same.

 “I felt so blessed to have them all here so I wanted them to be involved.”
