Most single people hope to meet someone they'll marry at a wedding when they have to show up stag, but probably not when they're children.
Fate seems to have decided the course of this North Carolina couple for putting them together as a ring bearer and a flower girl, only to see them wind up married 17 years later in the exact same church.
Adrian Franklin can remember the exact moment when he was told he had to be in a wedding with Brooke. He was only five years old but to him it was like yesterday, "I was devastated. I was like 'tell me I don't have to walk down the aisle with her!"
Seventeen years ago, he was the ring bearer and she was the flower girl in the wedding of a family friend. Brooke, who was also five, said she had the biggest crush on Adrian. He knew it and he hated it.
"We went to school together and I would always try to play with him on the playground and he wouldn't have anything to do with it," Brooke said.
"I was always trying to get away from her and run from her and hide from her," Adrian said.
Boy how things change.
