McCongratulations on McWedding

Posted Updated

RALEIGH — Well, the catering should not have been aproblem. For Valentine's Day a Raleigh couple had the Big Mac version ofa wedding when they tied the knot under the Golden Arches.

The morning team at MIX 101.5 radio dreamed up the unusual mc-weddingfor Valentine's Day.

Randy Ferrantino heard the idea, and thought it would be a great wayfor him to marry his love, Marta. He won the chance to take their vowsalongside breakfast customers -- who were undoubtedly confused or amazedby the ceremony they were being served up along with the ham biscuit togo.

In the midst of the workaday world, the bride was decked out in fullwedding regalia, and her groom was in a tux.

Even Ronald McDonald got in on the act, escorting the bride.

For sharing their special day with so many strangers, the Ferrantinossaved a bundle. Radio listeners donated the cake, flowers, music andphotographer.

And the radio station is sending the newlyweds to Cancun for theirhoneymoon. And no need to worry -- the almost-strike by American Airlinesdidn't faze them -- their tickets were on Midway.
