Lubbock Couple Ties the Knot at Epic Shotgun Wedding – See the Photos
The $10,000 Lonestar 99.5 FM/Diamond J Roofing Shotgun Wedding was an event we've anticipated for weeks, but the happy winner Alexandra Reyes (now Gamez) and her fiance Jonathan Gamez only had one week to prepare for it.
Imagine winning a wedding and only having a week to pick out your dress, rings, wedding cake and more. All the trimmings were put together beautifully and it was a wonderful wedding, officiated with poignant sincerity by Lubbock radio celebrity Wes Nessman.
The bride and groom were all smiles, and everything went smoothly. The wonderful couple each had family support with four bridesmaids and four groomsmen.
The turquoise theme carried over from the bride's beautiful dress to the navy that the bridesmaids wore and the lighter blue worn by the groom. The groom wore a black hat and everyone wore their boots.
Festive and warm colors popped in the bridesmaids bouquets, and the groomsmen's boutonnieres, fresh and fragrant, were from House of Flowers.
Cook's Garage is a terrific venue and lent a wonderful, colorful, fun-filled energy to the festivities.
BushHog's Restaurant's brisket, wings and more were mouthwatering and had just about everyone back for seconds.
The tiered Wedding Bundt Cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes, flanked by dozens of bundtinis, made for a beautiful and colorful display. Oh, and it was absolutely delicious, too.
Wine glasses shimmered and beers were raised to toast the bride and groom.
The 'oohs' and 'aahs' over the Diamontrigue wedding rings were reflected in the glowing faces of the newlyweds
Rose petals filled the air as the bride and groom ran off at the end of the night to enjoy their honeymoon at Woodrow House's beautiful bed and breakfast honeymoon suite.
Every precious unforgettable moment was captured beautifully by Jody Smyers Photography and will remind the couple, their family and friends of once-in-a-lifetime memories to cherish forever.
Many, many thanks to all of our wonderful sponsors.
