Minnesota cute: 20 years later, ring bearer and flower girl become groom and bride


An irresistible love story covered by FOX 9 is getting play across the country on TV stations and websites.

Brittney Husbyn and Briggs Fussy were the pint-sized wedding participants for a bride and groom who walked down the aisle in 1995.

"She was an energetic flower girl and he was a stoic ring bearer," the story notes.

Fussy told the station that years later, while in the same class, they reconnected after she turned around and said to him, "I think I have a picture of you on my wall at home."

They were wed Saturday.

Cosmopolitan magazine shared details of the nuptials on its website and noted the potential for their romance to go Hollywood.

"This is a rom com waiting to happen; Kate Hudson and Paul Rudd better GET READY," the story said.

"What's that?" the Cosmo headline queried. "That's the sound of a million women 'awww'ing at the exact same moment."

Their story was also featured on "Fox and Friends Weekend."

Minnesota couples are apparently really good at having must-see weddings.

In 2013, a YouTube video of Terra and Drake Otto went viral; the newly married couple from Hastings re-enacted the famous dance scene from "Dirty Dancing" at their reception and then recreated the dance on ABC-TV's Good Morning America.

Last June, a video circulated that showed a Minnesota bride, groom, bridesmaids and ushers posing on a dock when it collapsed, turning the wedding party into a wetting party.

And last September, a special guest attended the wedding of Sloan Braith and Adam Myers. Jeremy Gitzlaff, the man who donated the bone marrow to successfully treat the groom's cancer, met them for the first time at their nuptials at William O’Brien State Park.
