"I don't really remember the wedding part at all," says Briggs Fussy of his first trip down the aisle with Brittney Husbyn some 20 years ago. "I didn't even talk to her." Sound like your average Vegas wedding? It wasn't: They were just 3, serving as ring bearer and flower girl to Fussy's godmother in Minnesota. Now 22, the couple walked down the aisle a second time this weekend—this time as bride and groom—and Fussy's godmother couldn't be more pleased, reports ABC News. "Everybody loves it—especially my godmother, she takes all the credit," Fussy says. And this time around, the event was a little more memorable for the duo: "It was wonderful," Husbyn tells CNN. "As close to perfect as you can get."
Husbyn was a bit of a stand-in at that 1995 wedding—"She needed a flower girl," Fussy says of his godmother, who worked with Husbyn's mom. The two didn't meet again until 2007, when "she sat in front of me in government class," says Fussy, and something about his unique name rang a bell from long ago. She asked her mom, then showed up with a photo from his godmother's wedding. "I started to laugh because it was the same one we had hanging in the hallway at home," says Fussy, "but I never knew who she was." Within two years they were dating, and the rest is the stuff of fairy tales. "I knew I was going to marry her," Fussy says. (This couple first kissed in 1938 but didn't marry until 2013.)
