As one might imagine Gustavo’s friends were there for him and Delilah including culinary all-stars Roland Rubalcava, who provided tortas ahogadas/fideo seco, Carlos Salgado, who served aguachile, and Bricia Lopez and Fernando Marcos Lopez who brought a Michelada VW bus to the wedding. And famous DJ Richard Blade was their spinning New Wave music along with DJ Yellow Blackbird who played cumbias.
Snell owns the Road Less Traveled store located at 125 North Broadway in DTSA.

We wish this happy couple the best!
