Paige opened up about how she and Craig had started off as just friends while they vacationed together in Stowe, Vermont in the upcoming season of Winter House. “I met Craig, actually, three years ago and he was single. I had a boyfriend and I absolutely respected that I was in a relationship,” Paige recalled. “And then when we got to Vermont, I didn’t know he had a girlfriend. So, I was a little bummed when I first got there. But, of course, he was absolutely respectful to his girlfriend. And I’m so happy now looking back that he had a girlfriend because we built just a very platonic friendship, which is, like, the base of our relationship now. Everything really does happen for a reason.”
Paige had previously dated Perry Rahbar, as viewers followed on Summer House, but the two broke up in 2020. As Paige noted to Us Weekly, Craig was in a relationship Natalie Hegnauer when he entered the Winter House this season. The Sewing Down South founder previously opened up to fans about his relationship with Natalie in Season 7 of Southern Charm.
“And you’ll just have to see how it kind of plays out toward the end of our vacation,” Paige told Us Weekly. “It sounds so cliché, but Craig just gets me. There’s a lot of things I don’t have to explain to him because we look at things very similarly. It just fits, like, it just is very natural and it’s a lot of fun.”
With Paige living in New York City and Craig's life in Charleston, the Winter House couple has decided to keep their relationship long distance for now, Paige shared with Us Weekly. “We actually love long-distance. We’re two people that are very independent and have so much going on during the week,” she said. “When we get, like, Monday through Friday to get all of our things done and then I hop on a plane Friday morning, it’s fun. I feel like we’re more present with each other when we are together. We’re not on our phones and we plan and do fun things.”
