Happy anniversary to Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams-Paisley, who are celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary today! The two were married on March 15th, 2003 at the Stauffer Chapel at Pepperdine University.
I always thought they had the cutest story, which actually started way back in 1991 before they ever met. According to Good Housekeeping, Brad was dating a girl and he took that girl to see Father Of The Bride. While watching that movie, he found himself crushing on the character Annie Banks, who was played by Kimberly Williams. Four years later, Brad was feeling pretty bad about getting dumped by his girlfriend and took himself to see Father Of The Bride II. Seeing that character of Annie Banks put him in a better mood.
Fast forward another six or seven years... Brad was about to cut the music video to "I'm Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin' Song)" and he and his team invited Kimberly to play the leading lady in the music video. She accepted. While filming the video, the two hit it off and started dating. Several months later they got engaged and on this day in 2003, they were married. The two have two sons; Huck, who was born in 2007 and Jasper, born in 2009. And they may be the most perfect family ever!
It's especially fun to watch this video 20 years later, knowing that this is where it all began in real life. And it's fun to see the great cameos in the video too!
