Social media users have fallen in love with a Maryland man who went viral after exuberantly serving as a flower man during his cousin’s wedding. The animated flower man, Marcus Adams, went viral when his cousin Brittany Waters-Havenhill shared the video of her wedding on TikTok.
“He understood the assignment,” the bride wrote.

Adams treated the guests to a show they never expected, strutting his moves while walking down the aisle and dancing along to an instrumental version of the late J Dilla’s “Crushin,” Newsweek reports. With a basket full of petals in his hands, the man twirled graciously, unapologetically shaking his hips and showing off his footwork while making his way down the aisle without any care in the world.
He also showered the venue with petals while the guests looked on with astonishment. But it wasn’t enough to simply throw the petals all over the place — the vibrant flower man threw the flowers in style, tossing some behind his back. He also spread the petals in all directions, sometimes throwing them up high or extending his arm wide across his body to add a little more flare.
The jubilant cousin finished his performance with a grand finale, dumping the basket on his head in the end and taking a bow.
Waters-Havenhill posted a follow-up video after her cousin went viral.
“He did not practice for this at all,” Waters-Havenhill said. “He ran some ideas by me and I was like, ‘You have your full creative ability to do whatever you want.”

“He Set THE STANDARD,” another TikTok user added.
Speaking with WMAR 2 News, “Flower Daddy” said he “just had to wing it and do it.”
“It feels good, it’s just real crazy,” Adams told the outlet.
