Celebrity Wedding: Fred Savage & Jennifer Stone

The Love Story

Jennifer Stone, 30 met actor turned director Fred Savage, 28, when they were growing up in a small town outside Chicago. They lost touch, but a decade later two became reacquainted at Savage's 22nd birthday party and began dating. On a trip to Italy in September 2003, Savage proposed with a 5-carat cushion-cut sapphire surrounded by pavé diamonds. The ring, made by Neil Lane in Los Angeles, is engraved "I must have done something good," a lyric from The Sound of Music, Stone's favorite childhood movie.

Guests cooled off with pomegranate martinis and champagne at the pre-ceremony reception. "Having a cocktail reception beforehand made the ceremony feel less stuffy," Savage says.

The newlyweds' first dance was to Aretha Franklin's hit "Baby I Love You." The entertainment included a band that played such offbeat eighties classics as Modern English's "I Melt with You," says Savage, "We didn't want people dancing to 'I Heard It Through the Grapevine' one more time."
