As Tiffani Thiessen, 31, stood next to actor Brady Smith, 33, during their early-evening garden ceremony at a private estate in Montecito, Calif., on July 9, their pastor offered a tip for a long, happy marriage: one 30-second hug and one 10-second kiss per day—starting immediately. “After he said, ‘You may kiss the bride,’ all the guests counted to 10,” says Thiessen’s pal Tori Spelling. “It was beautiful.” As was the outdoor reception, where 135 guests dined on French Provençal cuisine beneath a makeshift roof strung with lights and danced amid country flowers past nightfall. The party continued at Santa Barbara’s Hotel Andalucia, where the couple spent their first married night—and awoke to day two of the 10-second rule. Not that they needed reminding. Says Spelling: “They are an amazing couple, so compatible. They are each other’s yin and yang.”
