Stephen Barker Liles of Love and Theft Sets Wedding Date
A summer wedding date has been set for Stephen Barker Liles of country duo Love and Theft.
Liles and his fiancée, Jenna Kennedy, will officially tie the knot on August 24, a Sunday, in Nashville. They’re keeping the special ceremony very intimate, opting to include only immediate family and close friends.
“We’re really excited,” Liles tells Country Weekly. “We’re just doing all family in the wedding, and then [Love and Theft’s Eric Gunderson’s] going to be on my side with my immediate family. Same thing with her. She’s got her best friends and her family.”
The happy couple has a 4-month-old son, Jett Barker Liles, who will no doubt add an adorable factor to the nuptials, and their famous friends are helping them out with the big wedding details.
Adds the singer, “David Tutera hooked us up with a dress and invitations, so we’re so excited. Dee Jay Silver’s going to DJ as our wedding gift, which is nice.” (Perhaps Liles will return the favor and sing at the mashup king’s wedding, as he recently became engaged, as well.)
Liles and Kennedy, who got engaged last spring, will have a “miniature honeymoon” after their wedding, but they’ll save the big trip for September, when they head to Puerto Rico. It’ll be a romantic getaway for them … and a destination wedding for one of Kennedy’s friends!
“Her friend is getting married there,” the ‘Runnin’ Out of Air’ hitmaker says. “You know how people have those destination weddings where people just invite everybody, but they don’t think people are going to show? Well, we’re like, let’s just make that our honeymoon!”
