Couple ties knot at Canfield Fair

CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) – Most of us go to the Canfield Fair to see the attractions, but Sunday a local couple became an attraction of their own.

Donna Bonwick and Shawn Mansfield got married at noon in the gazebo. The couple said it was a way to their love for one another and country music star Reba McEntire.

“I’ve been a fan of country music for years and Reba’s playing and it started out as a joke,” said Donna Mansfield. “He (Shawn) said Reba’s at the concert, she can do the ceremony and it just sort of stemmed from there.”

Shawn said he and Donna were childhood friends who turned into high school sweethearts.

Reba wasn’t at the ceremony, but will be taking the stage at 8 p.m.
