If at first you don't connect, try, try again. Just ask former "Wonder Years" star Fred Savage and his new bride, Jennifer Stone.

According to the new issue of PEOPLE, the two childhood friends parted ways in 1988, when Savage, then 11, moved from their Chicago suburb to Los Angeles for his 1988-93 TV stint as Kevin Arnold.

Eleven years later, they reconnected at his birthday party.

"We started talking and smooching, and we've been together ever since," says the actor-director, 28, who wed Stone, 31, a commercial real estate agent, Aug. 7 at L.A.'s L'Orangerie restaurant.

Among their vows, says Savage: "I promised to always bring up a glass of water to her before we go to bed, and she promised to never let me dress myself."
