Actress Jurnee Smollett who stars in The Defenders and Friday Night Light got married to musician Josiah Bell in a Los Angeles botanical garden on October 24th and finally released their wedding photo to People.
The couple decided to forgo the usual Hollywood glitz and glam and instead chose to exchange their vows surrounded by a small group of family and friends with Jurnee’s father-in-law officiating the ceremony which she said made the day “beautiful, moving and personal,”
“It was such a fun process. We didn’t hire a wedding planner. Josiah and I literally decided every detail together. I didn’t have the pressure of wondering whether or not the groom would like certain things. He was right there for every decision.”
She added that being married has changed her life saying,
“It’s incredible. My best friend is my life partner. It doesn’t get any better than that.”
They look so beautiful together. It’s so refreshing to see a celebrity couple avoid all that Hollywood hoopla and focus on the true meaning of marriage and commitment.
