Bisexual bride-to-be Krystle gets ready to wed her military man, Kiel, before he's deployed to Iraq.
Krystle, a 20-year-old bisexual bride-to-be, has been living in Maryland while her fiancé Kiel, a 22-year-old Air Force explosives expert, has been stationed in South Carolina awaiting deployment to Iraq. But distance isn't the only obstacle coming between this Engaged and Underage couple.
Krystle, a firm believer in sexual freedom, fesses up to her mother about having intimate relations with all of her bridesmaids and one of the groomsmen. Seeing the shock register on her mom's face, Krystle defends her actions by saying, "Sex and the City is all about having sex without emotions, and I've been watching that since I was 12." For this reason -- and a number of others -- Krystle's mom worries her daughter isn't ready to settle down and become the typical military wife.
Nonetheless, while Kiel trains and prepares to head to Iraq, Krystle marches on with the wedding plans and prepares to move away from all her friends and family to sleepy Sumter, S.C. But will she be able to fit in?
A week before the wedding, Krystle drives down to visit Kiel. Coming along for the ride is her bridesmaid Alex, who helps Krystle decorate her future home. Krystle knows she loves Kiel, but on the base she quickly realizes that military life is far more reserved and conservative than what she is used to.
As the big day approaches, Krystle's feet get a little frosty as she starts to realize that love requires a lot more sacrifice than she expected, and she fears she might have to tone down her wild ways. After a heart-to-heart with her mom about all the things marriage will entail, Krystle puts her openness to good use and talks to Kiel about how taking the plunge might change their relationship and alter her identity. Although she wants to get married, Krystle tells Kiel that she's still attracted to women, and he says he's OK with that.
Still living apart the night before the wedding, Krystle and Kiel both have time to reflect on the coming day, one of the most important in their lives. Emotions run high as each faces their lingering doubts and fears.
On the morning of the big day, after pushing their hesitations aside -- and Krystle coming to terms with what her new life will be like -- Krystle and Kiel excitedly rush to get ready for the ceremony. As they say their vows at the alter, everyone -- friends, family and bridesmaids alike -- fades into the background as the newly married couple focuses only on each other.
