Blanchard, Gallaway have beach ceremony


Gregory Wayne Gallaway and Teko Annette Blanchard were united in marriage July 7, 2007 during a seaside, beach ceremony.

Festivities took place at the Sandals Whitehouse European Village and Spa of Westmoreland, Jamaica.

The bride is the daughter of Don Blanchard of Claremore and Candace Fielder of Nowata. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Marty Gallaway of Perry.

Teko wore a white, strapless, trumpet gown adorned with a truffle colored sash, and carried a bouquet of long stem, white calla lilies and white orchids.

The ceremony took place on the beach under a white arch with clear blue skies and the vivid blue waters of the Caribbean behind them.

The couple was attended by Gena Smithee, a friend of the bride, and Travis Gallaway, brother to the groom. Those in attendance were Marty and Donna Gallaway, Curtis and Candy Fiedler, Gary and Cheryl Mack, J.R. Smithee, and Jennifer Harvey.

The couple continued with their honeymoon at the resort and returned to Oklahoma, where family and friends joined in their celebration at a reception at the Cherokee Casino in Tulsa on July 14.

Greg is currently employed as a sales representative by Farmers Brothers Coffee in Austin, Texas. Teko is currently employed as a geologist by United Resources in Austin. The Gallaways have established their home in Austin, and remain fans of OU football.
