Tracy Morgan’s Toddler Daughter’s Flower Girl Plans ‘Changed Last Minute’

08/27/2015 at 03:15 PM ET

Tracy Morgan and Megan Wollover‘s Sunday wedding had no shortage of romance — but there were also plenty of cute moments to go around.

Before Wollover made her entrance, a close family member carried the couple’s 2-year-old daughter Maven Sonae down the aisle as she held a sign saying “Daddy, here comes Mommy!”

The original plan was for Maven to be pushed in a buggy decked out in fabric and florals, “but as most 2-year-olds do at weddings, her plans changed last minute,” the couple’s wedding planner Jenny Orsini tells PEOPLE. “It was still very sweet!”

It’s been almost a year since the fatal bus accident that left Tracy Morgan temporarily in a wheelchair. At the time, Morgan’s daughter, Maven Sonae, his child with fianceé Megan Wollover, was only 10 months old and afraid to approach her father.

“[Maven] was a baby when I first came home from the hospital, so she was scared of the wheelchair,” the comedian, 46, tells PEOPLE. “She wouldn’t come over to me … I took that personally.”

During those difficult moments with his daughter, it was Morgan’s strong support system — including Wollover and her mother — that constantly kept his hopes up.

“[They] guided me and said, ‘No, she’s a baby and she’ll come around,’ ” he explains. “She was young. I was in a wheelchair every day. [But] my fiancée and my son, they wouldn’t let me just lie down.”
