Celebrity weddings are awesome, I think. We get to sit around and ponder what stupid things they will do and then discuss what kind of freak show children they are going to be cranking out and do over/under bets on divorce dates. But B-list weddings are even more fun.
And when you combine a 30+ year old NHL player and a Playboy Playmate — who is more famous for being the sister of another playmate, well you certainly get B-List. The ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS (via RANDBALL) dresses up the story of Dan Hinote and Amy McCarthy getting married this past weekend. Well, that and Jim Carrey dressing up as Fidel Castro.
Yeah, “what the deuce?” is right.
Fidel Castro, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley and Groucho Marx all gathered at Keystone Ranch on Friday to witness the nuptials between former Avalanche- turned-St.-Louis-Blues player Dan Hinote and the ga-ga-gorgeous Amy McCarthy.The wedding ceremony itself, officiated by the “reverend” JW “Bear” Berrett, took place under threatening skies that released a few drops right before the event, but didn’t spoil the outside ceremony plans.
The wedding party of 10 groomsmen and 10 bridesmaids wore traditional garb for the ceremony, but the guests were asked to show up in their favorite ’50s costumes, which would explain the dead celebs who attended the wedding.
(Aside: I feel like the Kevin Frazier of the blog world right now.) But in all seriousness, that’s a very bizarre set of instructions for a wedding party.
However, you gotta throw props toward Hinote for going wa-hay out of his league (IMHO) to pull in a McCarthy.
