Wedding Date: June 20, 2015

How They Met: All kinds of paths lead to happily ever after. Kellie and Matt met through their ex-boyfriend and ex-girlfriend—who got married in October 2014. “We basically switched,” Kellie says. “It couldn’t have worked out more perfectly for everyone.”

The Proposal: A few months after graduating from High Point University, Kellie and Matt celebrated by taking a sailing trip to the Virgin Islands with their parents. After a few days of blue skies and clear ocean waters, Matt asked Kellie to be his first mate forever and marry him.
