GAP, Pa. (WHTM) – A pair of grandmothers teamed up as flower girls at a wedding in Lancaster County, and now the pictures are going viral.

Photographer Ashley Gillman said her photos have turned up on newspaper websites across the country, even in the United Kingdom and Denmark.

When Josh and Maggie Wakefield were married June 11 at White Chimneys in Gap, they decided to honor their grandmothers at the wedding by having them be their flower girls.

Maggie said her father passed away from colon cancer in 2013, so she wanted his parents in the wedding. Her grandfather, Ronald Sr, walked her down the aisle and her grandmother, Joyce, was one of the flower girls.

She said she’s always had a very special connection to her grandparents because they helped to raise her.

Maggie said her husband’s grandmother, Drue, has been a huge influence in his life, as well. She said Drue is one of the most caring, gentle, and thoughtful women that she know.

Having our grandmothers as the flower girls meant the world to us, she said.
