Love and Theft Hear More Wedding Bells

Stephen Barker Liles, Wife Celebrate Their Son, Too

It’s love and marriage for Love and Theft’s Stephen Barker Liles. The country star tied the knot over the weekend with his longtime love, Jenna Michelle Kennedy.

The ceremony took place Sunday night (Aug. 24) at one of Nashville’s up-and-coming social spaces Ruby, only blocks away from Music Row. Talk about a “Night That You’ll Never Forget!”

The couple’s wedding planner Alex Bovee spilled the beans on all the behind-the-scenes details and revealed it was a ceremony that “brought their guests to tears.” Romance was not only in the air. It was in the décor and flowers the bride picked out for the reception where guests enjoyed cocktails from Popcorn Sutton’s Moonshine, cupcakes from the Painted Cupcake and dancing with the sounds of one of Nashville’s hottest DJs, Mindub.

And it wasn’t just an evening to celebrate the loving couple. It was also a night to celebrate their son, Jett Barker Liles. The ceremony included a dedication for the cutie, who was born Dec. 2, 2013.

Parenthood has been an amazing thing for the newlyweds. Upon Jett’s arrival, Barker Liles revealed to People magazine that he and Kennedy were “so thrilled to be parents,” adding “it’s the best thing that has happened to us.”

Of course the night wouldn’t have been the same without Barker Liles’ other partner in crime. His duo partner Eric Gunderson, wife Emily and son Camden were in attendance for the big wedding.

No official word on honeymoon plans, but the duo’s next gig just happens to be Wednesday night in Las Vegas.
