The Article

Jeremy Watson, a coach at Westover Junior High and entrepreneur, came to us to finance the construction of a wedding venue on 30 acres near Bushland. He saw the need for another wedding venue that was accessible and affordable for couples in the Texas Panhandle.

Jeremy’s vision was solid, and we wanted to help him achieve his goal of opening Legacy Wedding and Event Center.

“FirstBank Southwest were the only ones who gave me a shot,” he said. “They gave me some good info and within a few days, they had an answer for me.”

The venue is expected to be completed this November. Legacy Wedding and Event Center will include two upstairs rooms, a reception area, catering kitchen and outdoor space with a pergola and trees.
