Newcastle, Okla.- A Newcastle couple, Paige Owens and Bryan Bartz, recently engaged, have one request for their wedding day.
That is for one of Oklahoma’s country superstars to come to their wedding next summer in Pryor.
“I’m trying to get Miranda Lambert to come to our wedding next year,” said Owens.
They’ve even built a page on social media with their plea, talking about their unforgettable love story.
Owens said their families are huge Lambert fans and hope their love story attracts the country star sensation, who lives in Tishomingo.
“I didn’t make it easy for him,” said Owens.
“She was playing hard to get,” said Bartz.
They met at high school in Keller, Texas, but in 2007, the summer before Owen’s sophomore year, she was in bad accident.
The truck she was riding in crashed into steel poles, trees and a fence.
“They were all drinking and doing drugs, I was not,” said Owens.
Owens broke her neck and now, she’s paralyzed.
Three out of the five kids in the car died, including her best friend.
Years after the accident, Owens and Bartz reconnected on Facebook.
Last summer Bartz knew Owens was the one.
“He decides to ask my dad if he can marry me while I’m having these seizures in the hospital and my dad’s like, well you picked a heck of a time to ask,” said Owens.
It’s been a long journey for these two, but they’re ready to walk down the aisle and hope Miranda Lambert will be a part of it.
“You don’t even have to sing. I just want you to come hang out because you seem like a really cool person,” said Owens.
Now, they just hope Lambert says yes.
Lambert’s publicist sent a statement that said, “Miranda typically tours around the country in the summer months and foresees it being the same next summer.”
The couple is not giving up.
