The bride said it just made sense to have her Nana Betty in her wedding, as they truly are best friends.
"While she doesn't live that close, we have continually made it a point to spend as much time together as possible," she said. "She just has an amazing sense of humor and outlook on life that I strive to emulate every day. Everyone loves her."
The bride added that her grandmother wasn't so sure about being in the wedding at first.
"A few times she even said 'All of your bridesmaids are young and pretty, why would you want me?'"
