Actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley is frequently remembered for her role as Annie Banks in the classic film, Father of the Bride (and Father of the Bride Part II). She has been seen in various TV projects including According to Jim, Less Than Perfect and Boston Legal. But outside of the Hollywood spotlight, she is also wife to country music star Brad Paisley. The two have such a cute love story it makes us love them even more.

Love at First Sight (on the Silver Screen)

Paisley first saw Kimberly Williams in Father of the Bride when he was on a date (with someone else). He was quite taken with Kimberly and, after seeing both Father of the Bride films, went on to cast her in his music video for "I'm Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin' Song)."

"I thought, She seems like a great girl -- smart and funny and all those things that are so hard to find," Paisley told Good Housekeeping.

The two got married in 2003 and now live in Nashville, Tennessee with their two sons, Jasper Warren and William Huckleberry, who goes by "Huck." The sweet pair were married at the Stauffer Chapel on the Pepperdine University campus in California and have been passionate about their philanthropic efforts. Most recently they announced plans to open a free grocery store in Nashville for those in need. They are incredibly supportive of each other's careers and keep each other grounded with their strong sense of humor.

"The only reason Kim gave me a second date was because I made her laugh. And it's the only reason she's still with me!" Paisley told Good Housekeeping. Williams-Paisley made an appearance in the Netflix Christmas movie in 2018, The Christmas Chronicles, but has also been in her fair share of Hallmark movies over the years. Brad supports it all and we love watching their love.
