As Jewel and Cory prepare to wed, Cory becomes concerned that his future wife is too controlling.
Would you be willing to give up your passion -- and potential career -- to marry the person you love? Well, that's just what 21-year-old Cory did when he put aside all hope of having a professional BMX biking career in order to marry 20-year-old Jewel. But Jewel, a detail-oriented Texas gal, wants the perfect wedding, which may prove to be too much pressure for easygoing Cory. Did these Engaged and Underagers make the right decision?
As their wedding day gets closer, Cory's best friend and fellow BMX biker, Aubrey, begs Cory to strongly reconsider his decision to take the plunge. Aubrey thinks Cory is too young, too inexperienced and too good of a bike rider to give it all up for marriage.
Jewel, a true girlie girl, depends on Cory to be by her side and help her out at all times. In fact, the couple just bought a house together, and the house is in serious need of renovation. Jewel tells Cory that he must fix it up before their wedding. Having little to no money, Cory enlists the help of his friends and family, but it seems as though they'd rather goof off and crack jokes about Cory being whipped than help fix the house.
Meanwhile, Jewel has some grandiose ideas for the wedding. The two are getting married in an old Texas theater, and Jewel begs Cory to build her a bridge for her and her bridal party to walk over. In order to get the wood for building this bridge, Cory must tear up his old bike ramps from the skate park he and his family built together. His friends and family find it symbolic and sad that Jewel will literally be walking over what used to represent Cory's potential BMX bike career.
While Cory fixes the house and builds the bridge, Jewel continually nags him about things not being done in time or not being good enough for their wedding. This, in addition to the lack of support from their friends and family, creates more stress and tension for the young couple before their big day.
On the day of the wedding, everything seems to be going smoothly until just hours before their vows, when Jewel and Cory get into an argument that causes Jewel to have an emotional breakdown. Fortunately, Cory always seems to know the right things to say to make Jewel smile again, and she's in her bridal dress and ready to go in no time. By the time Jewel walks down the aisle to meet Cory at the altar the two are very much ready to say "I do."
