Her favorite moments aren’t so easy to pick. There was the charming photo session on the gold vintage couch, laid out in the resplendent Greenville sunshine. There was the cake-cutting, “our first thing we did together as a couple. I loved it,” she says. But there was nothing like a visit from her and Jarred’s chocolate lab, Pelle, who dressed the part in a bow-tie.
“We were very lucky to have this sort of idyllic day in Greenville in August on what should be a sweltering Saturday,” says Jarred. “It was all so unbelievably perfect that picking a single moment is tough. I’d say the moment Becky and I finally got to see each other before the wedding. I know some people think that pre-wedding shoot goes against tradition, but for me it made the day all the more special.”
And then, of course, there was dancing. The girls kicked off their heels in favor of classic Old Navy flip-flops and cut a rug. For the first dance, the couple swayed to Band of Horse’s “No One’s Gonna Love You More Than I do.”
After a lazy, sun-soaked honeymoon in California, where they rented a romantic tree house in the middle of a canyon in Big Sur, the couple is back in their cozy Trolley Square home and looking toward the future. “We want to travel, spend time with family, focus on us.” Next on the agenda: turning 30, together. “When I spaz, he’s there. We really appreciate each other for different things.”
For Jarred, Becky’s humor is one of the many things he loves about her. “I sometimes wonder if people know how funny she is. She’s hilarious,” he says. “I am so lucky to come home to her.”
He thinks about what his favorite part of the wedding was, and lights upon the closing line of one of his best men’s (he had two: brother Gabe and friend Pat) speeches.
“The best part may have been lost in the applause. But Pat’s final line is something that will stay with us forever:
‘May all of their yesterdays be an inspiration to us all, and may they light us fools the way to health and happiness.’”
