This 85-year-old woman was the perfect flower girl for her best friend’s wedding
We’re convinced that age is clearly just a number and friendships can bloom at any given time, even in the most random places.
And that’s exactly what happened when 85-year-old Dee Cooper and best friend Theresa Whitehead from Delaware met at a local band performance nearly decades ago, CBS Philly reported. And today, they are the definition of #bestiegoals, with 85-year-old Dee as the flower girl at Theresa’s wedding.
“We met when we were visiting my brother’s band and her nephew was playing as well… And I met Dee and I was like, ‘oh my gosh.’ I fell in love with her the second I met her,” Whitehead told CBS Philly.
When Whitehead started planning her November wedding, Cooper immediately came to mind as the perfect flower girl for her Big Day. She knew she had to ask her.
One of Cooper’s fears was the possibility of not being able to make it down the aisle as a flower girl, as she recently turned 85 on November 28th, she told CBS Philly.
“Well, let’s put it this way, I’m so much more comfortable around young people than old people,” Cooper told CBS Philly.
This isn’t the first time the concept of flower girl has taken a new spin — remember the adorable story of another octogenarian — Stanley aka the “flower grandpa,” who took on flower girl duties at his granddaughter’s wedding.
