A grown man served as a “flower girl” at his cousin’s wedding over the
weekend, and he succeeded in putting so much attitude into his role that
guests at the party were reeling with laughter even before the ceremony
Patrick Casey and his cousin Andria have been close since they were
kids and both of them were at a wedding together years back where he was
the ring bearer and she was the flower girl.
So when it was time for Andria to get married, she wanted him to be a
part of her ceremony in a spectacular way. He ended up offering to be
her flower man.
Patrick, who owns a public relations firm and lives in Appleton,
Wisconsin, US, turned out to be the most epic flower man ever. Guests
were taken aback when he walked down the aisle, carrying a flower basket
– the same basket Andria carried when she was a flower girl 20 years
before. Patrick put on a straight face as he did the wedding match while
throwing flowers, and soon the guests’ expression turned from surprise
to amusement. The icing on the cake was when he placed the basket on the
floor, reached into his pockets with both hands, brought out flowers
then threw them in the air. Wedding guests roared with laughter at this
before Patrick walked to take his place beside the best men (he doubled
as a flower man and a best man, it seems).
Patrick shared the video on YouTube and agreed his role may have surprised some. He told Buzzfeed:
“But I’m pretty sure they were won over when I got to the end of the
aisle and then proceeded to pull out flowers I had stocked in my pants’
pockets and did a LeBron powder toss with them. There was an ovation.
They fully encouraged me to do all of this. I would have never done
anything to take attention away from them if they didn’t want me to.”
The response to the video has been overwhelming, with people saying Patrick owned the wedding.
