Published: | Updated:

A toddler flower girl has become a viral sensation after her mom shared an adorable video of her being fawned over by the groom and his six groomsmen.  

Shannon Fitzgerald, from Newburyport, Massachusetts, posted the clip to Tikok, which showed her two-year-old-daughter, Eryn, surrounded by the men as one of them read her a book - and it quickly stole the hearts of millions of people on the internet.

The video was captured moments before Eryn walked down the aisle as the flower girl at her uncle JJ Polcari's wedding - which took place at the The Beach House in Newport, Rhode Island.

And although he was the one getting married, the sweet little girl appeared to be the star, as she had all of the groomsmen's eyes on her.
