Keep reading to find out.
Woman says her sister asked a waiter to be her date to a family wedding and he agreed.
TikTok creator @caarrlleeyy took to the platform to share the story behind her sister Morgan's wedding date. "My sister thought our waiter was cute at breakfast and invited him to our family wedding that night," she wrote in her video.
Fast forward a few seconds to the actual wedding, and the waiter, whose name is Scott, actually showed up. Not only did he attend the wedding, but he made a great impression on the family — especially Nana.
As the video continues, Scott is seen enjoying a beer after Morgan's father teasingly checked his ID to make sure he was old enough to drink.
Scott is also seen dancing with glowsticks, dancing with the bride, and meeting the groom's parents during this special night.
In the comment section, people were swooning over this adorable interaction between Morgan and Scott.
One person wrote: "Someone get booktok on this rn."
Another opined: "The most golden retriever man i’ve ever seen."
And a third user said: "The type of guy that’s down for random situations and makes friends easily…green flags abound."
Many people in the comment section also asked for an update on Morgan and Scott's relationship post-wedding.
A few weeks after sharing the video, @caarrlleeyy shared an update video on her sister's relationship with Scott.
It was in this video that we unfortunately learned that Morgan and Scott live on different sides of the country and as a result, are currently not pursuing a romantic relationship.
However, @caarrlleeyy's family wasn't ready to cut ties with Scott just yet.
Since @caarrlleeyy's father had checked his ID at the wedding, he knew Scott's birthday was actually just two days after the wedding.
That said, Morgan's entire family of 36 people ended up texting him happy birthday.
And Nana was specifically adamant on making sure he received a birthday message as she seemingly wanted the waiter to join their family.
In this update video, a screenshot of a text message exchange between Morgan and Scott is shown. However, as one user pointed out: "Texts seem too friendly…. Maybe they won’t be a thing."
Another person wrote that Scott should move to be with Morgan, teasing "Nana needs grandkids."
