Kelsey & Jamie in Pensacola, FL

On their first date, Kelsey wasn't sure Jamie was outgoing enough for her -- until he made her laugh. After that, Kelsey and Jamie couldn't get enough of each other and their relationship quickly grew more serious. The Bride Kelsey Meeks, 25, law student The Groom Jamie Duncan, 23, elementary school teacher and basketball coach The Date July 5 After just a few months together, Jamie started to jokingly ask Kelsey to marry him at random moments. Kelsey always played along, but after seven months of dating, she decided to test the limits of Jamie's humor by taking him up on his offer. "Let's do it!" she said, and they started planning right then and there on the living room couch -- no bended knee or ring required. The couple kept their engagement a secret for a week before telling Kelsey's family at her parents' Fourth of July barbeque in Key West. The happy occasion inspired the couple's red, white and blue wedding colors. The bride's other inspiration: The vintage carnival scene in the movie The Notebook.
