While it might sound like a storyline straight out of primetime television, Fayetteville’s Margaret Adams and Conway’s Brett Burge can assure you their love origins in the hospital were completely unscripted. The two met in the NICU at Arkansas Children’s Hospital while Brett was in nursing school and Margaret was working toward a psychology degree.

Fast forward four years, the happy couple finished up their degrees and busied themselves with starting new careers. Then came one fateful November day; Brett kidnapped Margaret and drove her out to Mount Magazine. It was there that he got down on one knee and proposed, and there that Margaret happily accepted.

The Silos

Despite knowing each other through a mutual friend in college, Daniel Bell from Jonesboro and Blytheville native Jenny Flock never got to know each other very well, so the sparks never got a chance to fly.

It wasn’t until that mutual friend later suggested they hang out that they obliged, and the rest was history. One day, the two set out for Memphis so that Jenny could take the Praxis exam for speech language pathology. When she finally finished, Daniel met her in the lobby where she excitedly told him she’d passed and intended to do some celebratory shopping. Once they got outside, however, Daniel had different plans. He dropped to one knee, and asked her to marry him.

Love is simple. There were no dramatic meetups or breakups for Omaha native Josh Cushman and Little Rock girl Sarah Hooper. The two met through mutual friends on a regular night at a regular bar on Dickson Street in Fayetteville. Josh sought her out on Facebook the next day and insisted they hang out. She eventually agreed, and the two fell into a love that was anything but ordinary.

Then one day, when Sarah and Josh were visiting her parents, Sarah’s nephew Jack surprised her in the kitchen. That’s when she noticed the shirt he was wearing read “Will you make Josh my uncle?” She then said yes to the adorable proposal and began planning the wedding of her dreams.

Listen to your best friend; that’s the lesson Chandler Blank learned. She and Morgan Bailey both grew up in Little Rock, even went to the same church, but went to different colleges and never thought much of each other. When Morgan and Chandler’s best friends started dating, Chandler’s friend told her to move closer and date Morgan. She didn’t.

After graduation, Morgan and Chandler both ended up back in Little Rock, and her best friend continued to try to set them up, assuring Chandler that Morgan was without a doubt the man she would marry. It was only a matter of time before the two went on a first date, and Chandler knew her best friend was right: This was the man of her dreams.
