Paige and Bryson were juniors in college when one of their mutual friends decided to set them up on a blind date. It took a lot of coercing to get Paige to agree to the plan, but now she’s glad her friend insisted she give Bryson a chance.
Instead of going the traditional route and taking her to dinner and a movie, Bryson picked Paige up at her dorm and drove her to the local rollerskating rink. Over the course of two hours, they skated, played arcade games, and realized they had more in common than mutual friends.
At the end of the night, Bryson insisted they give the notorious claw machine a chance—and lo and behold, he managed to scoop up a chocolate brown teddy bear for Paige to take home as a keepsake.
From that day forward, these two have been attached at the hip. They even took a swing dancing class together their senior year! And when their two year anniversary rolled around, Bryson took Paige back to the rollerskating rink to recreate their first date. But this time, instead of ending the night with a stuffed teddy bear, he presented her with a ring box and a request—that she do him the honor of being his wife and spending the rest of their lives together.
Paige and Bryson, we have loved celebrating you guys! You have the sweetest love story and so much joy and laughter to share with the world. We are privileged to have met you and been a part of something so special!
