The couple had a grand and lavish wedding ceremony at the JW Marriott in Charlotte, North Carolina. With more than 250 guests attending their special day, there was very little chance of not seeing any other NASCAR driver at the event. Ryan Blaney was the groomsman while Dale Earnhardt Jr, Daniel Suarez, and William Byron were also present.

However, he went on to acknowledge how important it was for Amanda. The 29-year-old added, “I can’t even give one percent of my effort into the wedding. It was all her idea. It was all her vision. And she blew it out of the water. It was incredible.” He was certainly glad that it all went as planned and that Amanda enjoyed it.

With the wedding completed successfully, Bubba Wallace can now focus entirely on the upcoming season. With Tyler Reddick joining the 23XI Racing stable, co-owners Denny Hamlin and Michael Jordan will be hoping for a promising show this season.
