Love and Theft’s Stephen Barker Liles Gives Wedding Planning Update
Two very important wedding planning details in the can at this point: the music and the booze!
Stephen Barker Liles is one busy man these days. On top of a red-hot career as one-half of country duo Love and Theft, Stephen is also preparing for his first child to arrive in the beginning of December and planning his upcoming spring wedding with fiancée Jenna.
"We just started planning and figuring all the wedding stuff out because it’s expensive," Stephen tells Country Weekly. "I am saving up for that currently. We don’t know exactly how big it will be. I want to do a really big one, so hopefully we have the finances to do that. It won’t be a $50-a-head plate, but it will be a party!"
However, Stephen has two very important wedding planning details in the can at this point: the music and the booze!
"Eric [Gunderson, of Love and Theft] and [whiskey company] Popcorn Sutton are taking care of all the alcohol, so that’s a big expense right there," reveals Stephen.
"That’s my favorite part of weddings," Eric adds with a grin as to why he chose to help out in that department.
As far as music goes, Stephen will have Dee Jay Silver spinning the tunes. "He said he would do that as his gift to us, so I thought that was so cool of him to do," notes Stephen. "So we have those two things taken care of, so that’s great right there. Now we just have to find a place to get married!"
Stephen and Jenna will likely wed in Tennessee, which is a convenient location for both sides of the family to travel to, and due to the fact that little Jett Barker Liles will only be a few months old. Their son is expected to arrive on Dec. 3.
