Ely Reeves Callaway III, founder of Callaway Cars Inc., surprised auto industry guests , friends and family at the recent opening of the Callaway Cars West location in Santa Ana, California, with a surprise wedding ceremony. Callaway and Nicole Jones were joined together as husband and wife on August 4.
Many of those in attendance thought they were simply attending the opening of an automotive facility. The building was surrounded by Callaway automobiles brought in by Callaway owners throughout the country in honor of the company’s 25th anniversary with Corvette. Inside the showroom were a new RPO B2K 25th anniversary Limited edition Callaway Corvette, a 1997 Callaway C7 race car, a Callaway C16 exotic and other very special Callaways.
At about 3 p.m., Reeves announced to his guests that he had a special surprise in store for them. Just then, a sedan pulled up and the bride-to-be emerged with a wedding party. Following the event, close family and friends were invited to a reception at the Montage Hotel in Laguna Beach
