There’s nothing like having an eternal love story to help kick off a new chapter in life!
Bush and her fiancé made things official on Monday when they married in an Oklahoma county clerk’s office. The couple has been tight-lipped so far when it comes to divulging details about their special day, but it is fair to assume their wedding day was just as romantic as their incredibly sweet love story!

Bush and her new husband, Grant Hughes, have a love story that wouldn’t sound of place as a storyline on the beloved TV show which helped launch Bush’s career!
It turns out there is nothing ‘new’ about the newlyweds’ relationship! Bush and Hughes have been a part of one another’s lives for quite a while.
In fact, these two have a whole decade of friendship behind them!
Bush candidly spoke about their relationship in a recent episode of “Drama Queens,” the podcast where she rewatches and dishes about every “One Tree Hill” episode alongside her ‘OTH’ co-stars Joy Lenz and Hilarie Burton-Morgan.
The actress admitted she was one of the last to notice the potential she and Hughes could have together as a couple. She told her besties, as per Us Weekly, “Everyone was like, ‘Welcome to your own party, ya idiot.’ And I was like, ‘well, cool. I’m glad I’m here!'”
Getting to, as Hughes echoed in his Instagram post commemorating their engagement, “Do life” with her new husband nearly did not happen.
Finding her way to Hughes took a lot of time and inner work for Bush, who admitted her dating life needed a major overhaul while discussing their blossoming relationship on the podcast.
“Well, I’m a romantic,” she began, “I’m a storyteller, I believe in people. I’m an optimist, so I often fall in love with potential. It’s not, as a partner, my job or your job to help another person realize their potential. You can support someone in realizing their potential- you can’t make them do it.”
Identifying this particular pattern in her past relationships lead her to make room for her relationship with Hughes to come to fruition.
“When I shifted the place that I pick from or that I was willing to see potential from being not sympathetic but inspired, I went, ‘Oh, oh!'” she added.
