Abby wore a beautiful white princess dress with black leggings beneath it. She and Matt exchanged ring pops. After the ceremony, the couple retreated to their “Just Married” car, where the groom pushed the bride back to her room so they could enjoy cake (including the traditional smashing of the cake in the groom’s face) and photos.
