Monterrey, Mexico - It was Big Macs, chicken nuggets and fries at a wedding banquet in Northern Mexico on Friday.
Fast-food fanatics Carlos Munoz and Marisela Matienzo tied the knot at a McDonald's in an upscale district of Monterrey, Mexico's most Americanized city.
"Some of our guests thought it was a joke. Our parents were resigned to it," Matienzo told local media.
The local franchise for McDonald's Corp (MCD.N) said the wedding was the first in one of its outlets in Latin America, a custom that has already taken off in Hong Kong for people seeking to depart from traditional marriage protocols.
