I won’t go into the whole story, but the short summary is that at Paige and Austin’s wedding, there wound up being two drunk wedding crashers that showed up. The crazy part is that their wedding was on private property out in the Hill Country. It’s not like they could’ve just walked by or casually stumbled upon it.

Nonetheless, Paige made a hilarious TikTok telling the whole story and using the photos from their wedding. It was a few days after she posted and tagged me in the video when I was able to sit and watch it. By then, I was blown away that the video had been seen about 11,000 times.

A few days after that, I got a text message from Paige letting me know that the video had gone viral. She also wanted to find out the logistics of making sure I was going to get credited correctly because Newsweek wanted to interview her. I couldn’t believe it. I went back to see how many views the video had and at the time it had already been seen 9 million times.

Not only can you read the story/interview on Newsweek, but it’s also been written about on Narcity and Yahoo News. But I’ve gone ahead and linked the video down below. I totally recommend giving it a watch. It’s hilarious.
