Love and Theft’s Stephen Barker Liles Marries ‘Best Friend’ Jenna Michelle Kennedy

One half of country duo Love and Theft tied the knot with the love of his life in Nashville on Sunday night (Aug. 24)! Stephen Barker Liles married Jenna Michelle Kennedy in a family-oriented ceremony.

The pair wed at Nashville’s Ruby, a boutique event center, but it hasn’t always been a glimmering road. Liles and Kennedy dated seven years ago before breaking up and then reconnecting in the unlikeliest of places — on Facebook! Then, last May, Liles decided to take the plunge while in Florida, asking Kennedy if she would spend her life with him with a 2.34-carat ring.

“I loved her for a long time and would have asked her sooner, but wanted to wait until I could get her a nice ring,” he explains to People.

The two already have one child together, nine month old Jett, and they made sure to include him in their ceremony. Their wedding parities consisted of siblings and, of course, the other half of Love and Theft, Eric Gunderson. Liles’ dad, Donnie, even performed the ceremony in front of 200 guests.

Kennedy’s family was also a part of the wedding, with her brother giving her away during the ceremony. She wore a white David Tutera mermaid gown with an intricate bodice and a veil.

“I am so blessed to have [Jenna] in my life and for us to become one,” Liles gushes. “She is my best friend and I am so grateful for the Lord bringing her into my life.”
