Wedding bells rang for state Sen. Eliot Shapleigh, D-El Paso, this weekend in the tiny old mining town of Shafter, near Big Bend National Park.

On Sunday, Shapleigh, 56, married Joyce Feinberg, of El Paso, former executive director of the Sun Bowl, former chief assistant to former El Paso Mayor Ray Caballero, and Shapleigh said, "an absolutely stellar person."

It was a small ceremony, attended by six people, including the bride and groom, he said.

Shapleigh divorced his first wife, assistant El Paso County attorney Lee Shapleigh, last year.
