Four years later, they rang in the New Year with a '60s style wedding that looked like it broke the bank -- but it didn't even break $8,000. Huge balloons, a confetti-strewn floor, and a rockabilly band made the bash just as sizzling as the night they met.
The big-day fashions: Lucas looked natty in Topman, and Kelly embodied midcentury glamour in Silver Moon Bridal.
