April is an 18-year-old, straight-laced good girl determined to walk down the aisle with 22-year-old Kenny, a reformed bad boy who captured her heart. When they met three years ago, Kenny was directionless and abusing drugs and alcohol. Since then, he has cleaned up his act to be with April -- he put the drugs down and got a steady job. But some people, including April's mom, wonder if old habits die hard. Will Kenny finally be able put his rocky past behind him and start a new chapter of his life story with his Engaged and Underage angel, April?
When they first got engaged, Kenny and April were quickly confronted by the reality that their parents felt they were too young to get married. Now, as the wedding approaches, April's mom, Beth, expresses her concerns that Kenny still needs to get his life on track, secure his GED and permanently put the brakes on his drinking and smoking. April defends Kenny and says that he's constantly working hard to change. Tired of all the negativity, April declares that together, she and Kenny will prove the naysayers wrong. They're getting hitched no matter what!
Later, Kenny and April discuss how the odds are stacked against them and take pride in how far they've come as a couple. However, April makes it clear to Kenny that she wants him to continue to better himself by quitting smoking and getting his GED. Kenny wants to please April, but feels that he's made a real effort and just needs some more time to achieve these goals. Kenny admits that he once had an alcohol problem but that when April came into his life she helped him find the right path and drink less.
Once the bachelor party is set, Kenny promises April that he won't come home drunk. Sounds like a plan. But when Kenny goes out with his buds, he goes overboard. He has more than a few drinks and has to be carried out of the bar and stumbles into the house in a drunken stupor. Greeted by an infuriated and extremely disappointed April, the couple gets into an emotional screaming match. April threatens to cancel the wedding and leaves the house in a huff.
The next day clearer heads prevail, as Kenny apologizes to April for his behavior and proclaims that it will be a "cold day in hell" before he has another drink. April is still hurt and upset about the incident but says she loves Kenny more than anything and still wants to be his bride.
Rain falls on their wedding day, making the ceremony both somber and sweet. During the ceremony, April's mom looks on disapprovingly, while Kenny's mom seems sincerely touched by the wedding vows. April and Kenny share a romantic dance, and, at the end of the night, Kenny tells April that he's happy they're finally married because he is ready to "go do what grown folks do."
