The Moonshiners star recalls the most memorable moment of the day as, “standing there on the alter with Carol and making our vows before God.” Meanwhile, his jubilant spouse — a bail bondswoman, who Tim claims to have “pursued [him] for 6 years until [he] relented and went out with her” — recalls “a special solo dance for me when [he] was going to do the garter thing.”

The happy couple celebrated with friends, family and moonshine. After all, what’s a celebration without a lil’ moonshine?

Here’s to Tim and Carol Tickle, may the moon-shine on their love.
