After seven years of being engaged, Mike and Jenna are now husband and wife! The couple first met back when Mike bought the property they currently live on from her family. They started out as friends before going on their first date — dinner and a movie.
While some were skeptical they’d ever get married, Mike and Jenna say that through their seven-year engagement, they got to know each other even better and it only deepened their relationship. They wanted to be intentional about building a life together.
Mike says he loves Jenna because she’s independent, yet she’s never wavered in doing whatever she can to help him realize his dreams. She backs him up 100% of the time, and he’s grateful for that.
Jenna says she loves Mike because he’s tender, yet still stands his ground. She knows he’ll always be dedicated to providing for her and their family. She also appreciates how eclectic and quirky he is.
How Moonshiners affected their relationship
Both Mike and Jenna remarked that, for most people, going on a show like Moonshiners might destroy their relationship, but for this couple, it’s only made their bond stronger.
Happily ever after
Mike says one of the most memorable moments of the wedding was seeing Jenna walk those last few steps to the altar and when they took their vows. It locked it in for life and they could not be happier together.
Another memorable moment for Mike was when Jerry showed up to the wedding. Mike teared up with happiness. At first, he wasn’t sure if Jerry would be able to make it after his brain aneurysm, but Jerry was there to support his friend.
Brothers for life
After Jerry’s surprise arrival, Mike said, “I’m grateful and thankful that he’s here, and he’s in good enough shape to stand by me, means everything in the world to me.”
Moonshiners’ Richard Landry was also in attendance at the wedding.
Congrats to Mike and Jenna!

This may be Mike’s fifth marriage, but he truly believes he’s found the one in Jenna. He’s the happiest he’s ever been. Congrats to the happy couple!
