Kids Meet at Wedding, Walk Down the Aisle at Their Own 2 Decades Later after a Chance Reunion

Kids Meet at Wedding, Walk Down the Aisle at Their Own 2 Decades Later after a Chance Reunion

In 1995, two 3-year olds accompanied each other down the aisle as flower girl and ring bearer at a Minnesota wedding. The ring bearer was the bride’s godson, and the flower girl was the daughter of a close friend.

This past weekend, nearly 20 years later, Briggs Fussy and Brittney Husbyn, both 22, walked down the aisle again, but this time as bride and groom.

The couple, who both say they do not remember each other from that first wedding, wouldn’t meet again until 2007.
“When I saw the picture, it clicked who she was,” he said.

The two started dating their junior year and eventually attended separate colleges — Fussy at the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse and Husbyn at Minnesota State University-Mankat

“I knew I was going to marry her,” Briggs told CNN.

The couple have been enjoying the attention garnered from their remarkable love story.

“I’m pretty cheesy when it comes to love stuff, I’m not going to lie,” Husbyn told CNN.

They’re both now two semesters from finishing their degrees at Minnesota State University — he’s studying economics and her degree will be in education. After graduation, the couple plans to move closer to family in Blaine, Minn.

Fussy said it’s been a whirlwind since the pair came full circle on Jan. 10, when they tied the knot.
