St. Patrick’s Day, Mexican Mariachi & Rugby, Make One Heck of a Wedding Day

I love finding a good diptych. Melissa and Pat’s checking in from the waiting rooms at St Raphael Catholic church in Naperville.

Pat has Irish heritage in his family and Melissa has Mexican ancestry, so the two of them celebrated their wedding day with some flair from both traditions as they went from a traditional Catholic wedding at Saint Raphael’s Church in Naperville, to a sham-rockin’ green St. Patrick’s Day wedding reception at the Oakbrook Bath & Tennis Club. Complete with a mariachi and a guest sign in book that was actually a rugby jersey from the Irish National rugby team rugby.

Forget a guest book to sign in, autograph this Irish rugby jersey in stead.

This is what happens when your guest lists includes a lot of rugby players. You get a lineout for the garter toss.

The old “fool the blindfolded groom” garter trick.
