Briggs Fussy and Brittney Husbyn's wedding day wasn't the first time the couple walked down the aisle together.
The bride and groom met in 1995, when he was a ring bearer in his godmother's wedding and she was the flower girl.
"There was a picture on my wall of the two of us at the wedding together, but I don't remember the wedding, and I didn't know anything of her after it," he told USA TODAY Network.
The couple reunited years later in their freshman government class at Blaine High School, outside of Minneapolis.
Fussy said his future bride turned around during class one day to show him a picture that he already knew very well.
"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-Mankato.
"I knew in high school that I wanted to marry her," Fussy said. "In college I kept thinking I want to be with her, and to do that I had to transfer."

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.
"When I saw her walk down the aisle, I had the biggest smile, and I've been smiling ever since," he said.Source: www.usatoday.com
