Jurnee Smollett pulled off a nearly impossible feat for most stars: an intimate, private wedding.
Who knew that Jurnee has been living in wedded bliss for months?! The “Friday Night Lights” actress recently married musician Josiah Bell (Click here to visit his website).
Word that Jurnee jumped the broom spread like wildfire once People.com published a wedding pic of the happy newlyweds. Reportedly, Jurnee and Josiah tied the knot during a “beautiful, moving, and personal” ceremony on October 24 at the Botanical Gardens in Los Angeles. The ceremony was truly a family affair as Josiah’s father, a pastor, officiated at the wedding.
The lovebirds decided to keep their nuptials simple and they planned the whole thing themselves. "It was such a fun process," Jurnee told People.com. "We didn’t hire a wedding planner. Josiah and I literally decided every detail together."
Jurnee said that keeping Josiah involved in the planning process helped her avoid any bridezilla blowups. "I didn’t have the pressure of wondering whether or not the groom would like certain things," she explained. "He was right there for every decision."
Married life is definitely agreeing with the actress, who also stars in “The Defenders.” “It’s incredible,” she said. “My best friend is my life partner. It doesn’t get any better than that.”
