A woman had her fairytale wedding when a special guest walked down the aisle: her grandmother.

Keely Crimando married her husband Mike on Oct. 21 in Rochester, Michigan, with five flower girls in her party. Two of whom were her grandmother and aunt.

Adorning fairy wings and holding wands, Crimando's Aunt Flissa pushed her 87-year-old grandmother, Dorothy Czartorski down the aisle in her wheelchair.

"It was the best. Having them in the wedding is what made it a fairytale dream come true," Crimando told PEOPLE. “It was the best day of my life! It went so fast, but the day was perfect and having my Gram and Aunt Flissa in the wedding made the day special."

Crimando said she and her grandmother have always been "besties," and it was a no-brainer to make her part of the wedding party.

“It made me so happy to include her in our special day. I can’t have imagined it any other way. She was so happy and was the star of the show!” Crimando said. “I saw a story about someone having their grandma as their bridesmaid and I thought it would be cool to have gram as a flower girl!”

Close family members weren't the only ones who were able to see the close bond Crimando and  Czartorski shared.

"[Keely's] aunt pushed her grandma down the aisle and the little girls followed closely behind, tapping guests lightly on their heads and shoulders while making their way to the front," the wedding photographer, Lara Cenovski said. "I could just tell how much love and admiration Keely had for her grandma."

"Later on in the evening, grandma even managed to make it onto the dance floor! It was such a great night," she added.

Once the official wedding pictures were released, photographs of Czartorski at the ceremony have flooded social media, and have been shared more than 500 times on Facebook.

"It’s crazy!" Crimando said. "I'm so excited for my grandma. I called her last night and read the comments to her. She’s so happy. We’re all so happy and touched."
