Flower Girl & Ring Bearer Marry 20 Years After Walking Down Aisle Together (WATCH)

Many brides often imagine the guys and gals in their wedding party falling head over heels in love like something straight out of a romantic comedy. They may even picture family members or coworkers finding romance on the dance floor.

Let's face it: Weddings, thanks to all that love in the air (and the open bar, of course), are breeding grounds for new relationships!


But there's one couple no one ever imagines hooking up: the flower girl and the ring bearer. And yet that's exactly what happened with one Minnesota couple. Before you say, "Gross! They're just kids!" hang on, this adorable duo fell in love and married 20 years after their first trip down the aisle. 

Brittney Husbyn and Briggs Fussy were taking the same college course when the former flower girl recognized the erstwhile ring bearer.

Fussy explains: 

She turned around one day in class and said, "I think I have a picture of you on my wall at home."

Turns out Fussy's mom had the same one!

“It was funny, the first time I ever went over to his house, his mom whipped a picture off her wall and said, ‘I’ve had a picture of you up in my house forever,’” the bride recalls. “It’s fun to have something special like that to look back on.”

Don't you just love that his mom saved it all these years? She probably feels like she stuck it up on her wall just yesterday, like all those photos that line your fridge that you'd swear were just taken and then -- BAM! -- suddenly you've gone from mother of the ring bearer to mother of the groom! 

You also have to wonder what the couple thought of each other as kids. Fussy says he remembers "little glimpses" of "Brittney's running around, making commotion." 

It's so cute to think that this couple, paired together as children, proved to be grown-up partners as well. Don't you wonder, too, if Husbyn hadn't recognized him from that photo, would she have started a conversation with Fussy anyway? Sometimes all a gal needs is a great opening line and a little something in common -- in this case Husbyn had both!

Best of luck to the happy couple!
