Couple to wed at St. Patty's parade

LAKE VILLA, Ill., March 12 (UPI) -- An Illinois couple said they have received permission to hold their wedding atop a float during their village's St. Patrick's Day parade.

Paul Quinn, 40, and Tara Teschky, 36, Lake Villa residents who have been dating for four years, said they had only been engaged for a month when they came up with the idea of holding their wedding inside of the parade, which they attended together regularly with their children from previous marriages, the Chicago Tribune reported Monday.

Teschky said she was half-joking when she suggested the parade wedding, but she soon found herself on the phone with the mayor's office receiving the go-ahead for the unusual nuptials.

"It's the most fun thing ever," Teschky said. "Our kids are ecstatic."

Betty Burns, who has served as parade coordinator for 14 years, said the wedding will be a first for the 20-year-old event.

"I think it's gonna be fun. I think it will add some spark to the parade," Burns said.
