Meet Patrick Casey. He played an important if unusual, role in his cousin Andria’s wedding earlier this month.
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.
“They’ve been together a while and I started lobbying to be the flower man before they were even engaged,” Casey told ABC News. “They loved the idea, and I was beyond excited they said yes once they were officially engaged.”
Casey carried out his role of “flower man” with passion. He threw petals left and right while walking down the aisle and then finished by stopping to toss the remaining petals above his head.
The flower basket Casey used for the wedding holds sentimental value for the cousins. Twenty years ago, Farthing and Casey walked down the aisle together as flower girl and ring bearer for a family wedding. Casey carried the same basket Farthing used when they were kids.
Casey said of his untraditional role, “I think every good marriage has a little laughter in it.”
The flower man also made an impression during the wedding reception as well.
