On Saturday, October 19, 2019, Moonshiner Steven Ray Tickle, a.k.a. “Tickle,” married sweetheart Carol Tickle and the theme — if you can believe it — was moonshine. Among those in attendance at the copper-accented affair were fellow Moonshiners Tim Smith, Henry and Kenny Law, former Moonshining partner Howie, as well as the happy couple’s family and friends.

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.
