Recently I came across a story that could be made into some kind of romance movie. I promise you a talented script writer could have this turned into something you would see on The Hallmark Channel.
Imagine being a flower girl in your aunt’s wedding and the ring bearer is the nephew of the best man. The two of you lock arms while walking down the aisle. Everyone is snapping pictures. During the reception, the guests motion for you to dance so that the photographer can get pictures. You both grab each other’s hands and rock side-to-side for the cutest dance ever. You practically steal all of the attention away from the newlyweds.
Fast forward seventeen years later, the two of you walk down the aisle together. However, this time, you are the bride and he is the groom. Sounds made up right?
Something very similar happened to a couple – Brooke Gibson(flower girl/bride) and Adrian Franklin (ring bearer/groom).
Actually they were the five year old kids of the couple’s friends. The original bride whose wedding they were in was actually a guest at their wedding. She even brought them a picture of themselves at her wedding. The funny thing is that they didn’t remember being in a wedding together at all. I’m sure that this was a pleasant surprise. They can hang that picture right beside their wedding picture.
While growing up, they became close friends. Though, she was smitten very early on – and he – well, not so much. Something changed and the rest is history.
When some of us hear about stories like these, it fuels our belief in destiny and fairy tales.
So, when we watch these shows, read these books, and salivate over these movies, it feels great when a real -life romance is brought to our attention. It’s seems possible that our dreams will also come true. (if that’s what you’re hoping for).
It’s a really cute story.
Go to the Huffington Post for the story in its entirety.
For those of you who are seeking real-life romance, I hope that you all find it.
Thanks for reading. Happy Random Tuesday.
