East Texan Sunny Sweeney Weds in Las Vegas on 11/11/11
Sunny Sweeney‘s new single, ‘Drink Myself Single,’ no longer applies to her personal life. The singer-songwriter is officially off the market! Sweeney and her longtime boyfriend, Jeff Hellmer, said “I do” on Friday, Nov. 11.
The pair wed in Las Vegas at the famous location, A Little White Chapel, surrounded by a small group of friends and family. Sweeney and Hellmer kept their wedding plans under wraps as best as they could, but Friday, the engaged Sweeney essentially let the cat out of the bag via her Twitter page.
“Goin to the chapel….” she wrote, as fans began to wonder the meaning behind those words.
The nuptials and intimate ceremony took place on Friday night. The happy couple even decided to write their own vows for their ceremony, with Hellmer’s consisting of lyrics to several well-known country songs. A small reception was held following the ceremony, complete with a Vegas-themed wedding cake and Vegas-themed activities. “If I ever wonder where I got my compulsive gambling gene, my dad left casino at 420 am and my mom left at 5am,” Sweeney tweeted on Saturday. “That’s what Vegas is for. Lol”
Sweeney’s new husband is a Sergeant with the Austin Police Department in Texas and is a former Staff Sergeant in the U.S. Air Force.
Congrats to Sweeney and her new hubby from Taste of Country!
