Flower girl and ring bearer get married 20 years later

It's a love story nearly two decades in the making. Fate, or whatever you want to call it, can be a crazy thing -- for a couple in Minnesota, it brought them back down the aisle 20 years later.

In any good love story there's always that moment when a chance encounter becomes something more.

Brittney and Briggs Fussy walked down the aisle together as two little kids way back in 1995. She was an energetic flower girl and he was a stoic ring bearer, both related to the bride and groom. Little did they know this would not be last time they'd walk down the aisle together.

"She turned around one day in class and said ‘I think I have a picture of you on my wall at home,'" Briggs said. "It's funny how god's plan came into place. I didn't even know her before she turned around in class and told me that."

And the rest, as they say, was history. One date became two and after five years together the couple is right back where they started.

"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,'" Brittney said. "It's fun to have something special like that to look back on."

The ring bearer and flower girl this time around are Brittney's little cousins.

"They're related, so it's not going to be the same story," Briggs laughed.
