She is fearless, she is trendy, she is poised and sweet, and full of Southern charm. Just look at her bold fashion statement in her choice of her wedding dress she found all the way up in Nashville, with its elegant sparkle-encrusted bodice and endless frills falling to the ground.

Kelsey and Matthew warned us in advance to not expect them to be too serious or stiff, and they were completely right.
