Get ready for some ridiculously cute romance. Adrian Franklin met his future wife Brooke when the two were just kids. The pair were assigned to be the respective ring bearer and flower girl in the wedding of a family friend. But romance was not to be had. Not yet, anyway.

It was typical elementary school stuff. Brooke liked Adrian but Adrian was NOT into girls yet. "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 told WBTV.

"I was always trying to get away from her and run from her and hide from her," Adrian said.

So when it came time to walk down the aisle together at the wedding? Adrian wasn't exactly thrilled. "I was devastated. I was like 'tell me I don't have to walk down the aisle with her!'"

He of course came around. Eventually.

The two started dating in high school, and just a couple of years out, Adrian proposed to Brooke. Seventeen years after they fatefully stood next to each other as flower girl and ring bearer, the pair exchanged vows, in the very same church. No word on whether or not their flower girl and ring bearer got along.
