Win a Live Performance by Gabe Dixon at Your Wedding Reception!


We LOVE music here at Green Wedding Shoes. In fact, when we were planning our wedding, music was one of the top things we discussed. We spent hours crafting the perfect list of music. We would’ve loved to have live music at our reception, but it just wasn’t in our budget. Who wouldn’t love to have live music, right? And what if the live music, was a rad singer songwriter like Gabe Dixon! If you’re not familar with Gabe, get ready to fall in love. I’m currently obsessed with his song My Favorite. Gabe says that as hard as he tried, he couldn’t finish the love song he wanted to play for his wife Amanda on their wedding day. Four years later, he realized why. His love is about the joy of the moment. As his lyric says, “My favorite song is the one I write for you. It’s the one I haven’t finished yet. I hope I never do.” Check out the song and video below:

Good stuff, right? Well, if you are a couple that LOVES music and really want live music for your wedding reception, this is your lucky day. Gabe (a happily married man and romantic at heart) wants to play at YOUR wedding reception!! Yep, one lucky couple will win a live performance by Gabe at their wedding.

  1. Not getting married, Already am (for 30 years), but I like this guy. Great tenor voice and NICE rapport with the audience.

  2. So excited about this contest that I immediately called my daughter. The two of us saw Gabe when he performed with Kenny Loggins in Worcester, MA. She is getting married next year and is definitely entering the contest. What an awesome reception that would be – Gabe Dixon giving a live performance of “My Favorite.” Can’t get better than that!

  3. Ohhhh Gabe Dixon is one of my fiance’s and my favorite singer/songwriter! He is beyond talented! We actually just saw him perform last month…too bad our date is set for 2013. Good luck to everyone! :)

  4. I got married last June, so I’m not entering, but I’ve been a big fan of Gabe’s for years. I saw him live in Omaha a few years ago – he really is great entertainer.

    The winner will be lucky!

  5. I’m from Cape Town, South Africa so it is unfortunate that this is not a contest I can enter. Did not know who gabe Dixon was until I read this post and heard the song “My Facourite” – once hearing though, I can say I am officially a fan. Can anyone tell me where I can order his music online? Or whether it is available in SA? Thanks, Lauren.

  6. That is an amazing contest!! Gabe is awesome. :)

  7. Did anyone win this contest?? Because if you need people to enter, O my goodness, I will strong arm my boyfriend into getting married just to have Gabe play at the reception. Gabe played the processionals at my brother’s wedding (on an accordion!) and it was phenomenal. Thanks!
