When does loving an automotive brand go too far? A possible answer could be when two people decide to get married and have almost every facet of their memorable day related some how to their favorite brand, no matter how ridiculous it may seem. That's exactly what will happen when diehard Hummer fans Sonya Jefferson and Steve Spencer tie the knot in an official HUMMER wedding scheduled to take place on the 22nd of this month in Reno.

No minister will be presiding over this wedding. Instead, Team Hummer driver Rod Hall will act as the celebrant with the happy couple reciting vows while standing in the beds of HUMMER trucks. Hall will be wearing his full race-suit and guests will later enjoy a custom 3D-shaped HUMMER wedding cake before the newly married couple hop into their HUMMER H2 to go off-roading in their wedding attire with 100 other Hummer owners.

Residing in Vancouver, Washington, Jefferson and Spencer both own HUMMER vehicles, as do several members of their family, including the maid of honor and mother of the bride. Whatever happened to the sanctity of marriage? Sigh.

PRESS RELEASE:

One HUMMER Of A Wedding!

Couple to Marry in HUMMER-Themed Wedding "Like Nothing Else" in Reno, Nevada on June 22

Reno, NV - TEAM HUMMER captain Rod Hall will officiate a HUMMER of a wedding June 22 in Reno as couple Sonya Jefferson and Steve Spencer enjoy a wedding ceremony "like nothing else." The couple will get married while standing in the beds of HUMMER trucks with Hall sporting his racesuit to oversee the "I Do's." The couple will then cut a custom 3-D shaped HUMMER wedding cake, unwrap a HUMMER of a present, and then hop into their H2 to go off-roading in full wedding attire. Their adventure will continue June 23-24 when they join more than 100 HUMMER owners for an off-roading trek that puts vehicles to the maximum use.

The Washington natives who reside in Vancouver, Wash., are huge HUMMER fans, both owning HUMMER vehicles along with several family members, including the maid of honor and mother of the bride. Jefferson and Spencer planned their wedding around the HUMMER owner off-roading event, and chose to use a "HUMMER" theme to infuse "fun" into their big day and celebrate their joint affinity for the vehicles. The couple will actually hold two ceremonies – a small private one June 21, and a fun-filled HUMMER wedding with a close group of friends and family June 22.

      Do they have dead baby penguins as decorations, too? haha

      I pray to the gods this trash family doesn't breed. And people wonder why other countries hate the U.S...

        Actually, I don't think that this will be an issue. Considering the reason that most males buy a new Hummer, the bride will probably need a magnifying glass on honeymoon night.

      This would be disturbing even if their obsession wasn't with such a completely useless brand of horrible products.

      The best off-road equipment; a light pack, a good pair of shoes, a walking stick.

      4X4's are for sissies. 8-)

      The most common site in a Hummer H2/H3..................an overweight mommy in front and an empty car seat in the back. Might as well make an H2 "Big-Ass Shopping Cart" Edition. Too bad idiot consumers are not aware of the H2's pedestrian Tahoe underpinnings.

      Hey Snark, there are times when you are driving offroad that you need big vehicles. Not everyone who offroads traipses about between remote jungle villages converting natives or killing lions or whatever it is that you do.

      offroad doesn't mean just barrelling through mudpits and river crossings.

      FYI to leather bear...You are so wrong about everything and that goes the same for the rest of you idiots. The groom was not the owner of these HUMMERS, think again you loser...The bride brought these vehicles to the family. Get a life!

      I really don't see whats so wrong about this... These people really like 4x4ing.. and they want to renew there wedding vows... the only reason its news worthy is the heavy Hummer angle to it all.

      If two people decided to they really like driving and decided to have a BMW themed wedding fallowed by a vacation down the autobaund, would anyone bat a eye? How about if two people had wedding by standing on the trunks of matching Chevy Monte Carlos, fallowed with a honeymoon trip to Datona? Surely no one has ever heared of anyone doing a NASCAR wedding... And god forbid should two bikers get married, and move to Milwaukee! The world would come to a end if that happened.

      My point is while somewhat implausable, its bound to happen, and its not really news worthy, (Nore blog worthy,) because all thats proven is, that if you mention Hummer, you will certinly find over 10 people to find something negative to say about it.

      On top of that, what is horrible about 4x4ing in a Hummer? Even if its based of a Chevy Tahoe, last I saw, Chevy trucks and SUVs where perfectly acceptable 4x4 rigs.

      After all, its not what you start out with for a rig, its what you do to make your rig as capable as possible. And with that in mind, because the Hummer is set up from the start to make a great 4x4 rig to begine with, chances are you will end up with a fairly nice 4x4 rig when your finnished working on it...

        The H2 is an utterly crap offroad vehicle for one very simple reason: size and visibility. I've done expedition driving in Asia and South America, and I've been offroading all my life in places like Moab, and I wouldn't touch a H2 with a ten-foot pole for serious offroad work. They're about a size and a half too big for most trails, the visibility is so bad you can barely see where your corners are, let alone the details of your obstacle, and the weight is totally excessive. All trail rigs are NOT created equal; the best trail rigs in my opinion are no bigger than a Wrangler 4-door, an older 4Runner, or a crew cab Toyota Hilux. I don't care how much work you do on it, if the vehicle you're starting with possesses inherent flaws on the scale that the H2 does, it's never going to be a competent rig.

        The H2 is for show anyway; its butch looks are really only skin deep, and do not reflect the attention to function and utility that characterized the original HMMVW, and which characterizes truly great offroad vehicles.

      Don't bash this, folks. After all, this IS the last time this guy is going to get a HUMMER. ;)
      • 7 Years Ago
      Well, at least they're going to use the HUMMERs as they were intended. I hate HUMMERS so much, just for the simple fact that most people buy them for status symbols, and not the off-road ability (or even interior space).

      (puts flame suit on)

      "Their adventure will continue June 23-24 when they join more than 100 HUMMER owners for an off-roading trek that puts vehicles to the maximum use."

      They should start making friends with Jeeps now, so they'll have people to bail them out. Unless they're going somewhere more appropriate to an H2's off-roading ability. Like, you know, Wal-Mart.

      Absolutely tasteless.
