Leman admits she didn't come up with the idea totally on her own. As an intensive care unit nurse, she was taking care of a patient who told the bride she was a flower girl in her own granddaughter's wedding, Leman recounted for ABC News.

Grandma was decked out a maroon dress and proper pearls, and she did her job perfectly, throwing flower petals in the air for her granddaughter. When guests saw Grandma, they smiled and cheered. Grandma was also emotional.
