Clowns wed at annual convention

LANCASTER, Pa., Aug. 26 (UPI) -- The centerpiece of a clown convention in Pennsylvania was the wedding of two participants in full clown makeup and garb.

Billy Tedeski of Pittsburgh and his bride, Patty Kulwicki, said the costumes and antics from their weekend wedding at the 2013 Clownfest at the 2013 Clownfest, a clown conference held at the Lancaster Host Resort and Conference Center in Lancaster, came from their first prize-winning skit at the 2011 Clownfest, Pennlive.com reported Monday.

The couple said the clown wedding, which included a fishing pole as a prop, was an idea that started as a joke but soon became a reality.

"Clowning just means so much to him," Kulwicki said. "So when he asked me [to do a clown wedding], I couldn't think of anything that would make him happier."

"To us, these people are family," Tedeski said.

"I've had two wives, but she's my first partner," he said of his bride.

The ceremony was officiated by fellow clown JoAnn Ihnat, who has been attending the annual convention with the couple for years.

"It was a lot of joy to do this for a couple so in love," Ihnat said. "This couple has all it takes to make it work."
