Last weekend, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed of Gene Simmons Family Jewels were finally married, and now Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed chatted about their big day. What did the newlyweds have to say? Read on to find out!
After finally tying the knot this past weekend, and 28 years together, Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed have spoken out about their big day. Shannon Tweed says the wedding “was a giant jam session,” while her husband, Gene Simmons added: “It was a great evening of music and fun. I look at my wedding band and think, ‘What was I afraid of all this time?’” to People Magazine.
Sadly, Shannon Tweed’s father could not walk her down the aisle, since he passed away nearly 30 years ago. Shannon shared how she had her father with her on her big day as she revealed: “My father died when I was 24 so he couldn’t be at the wedding, so I melted some of the gold from his wedding ring and put it in two strands representing our two kids.” Shannon Tweed also revealed that she purchased her ivory Rene Caovilla heels in a boutique in Santa Monica back in 2001, as she hoped she would wear them someday!
Again, a big congratulations to the happy couple! Stay tuned for details on when we can see the wedding on A&E!
