Think about the greatest wedding you’ve ever witnessed. Perhaps it was a close friend’s, or perhaps it was your own. Well, it’s now the second greatest, because it wasn’t a Hartford Whalers-themed wedding.
And there probably wasn’t a beer man at yours, either.
Kate Murphy and Sean Dwyer were married on March 30 (here’s the Facebook page). She wore white with a Whalers logo on the train. Dwyer, who grew up a Whalers fan before their relocation to become the Carolina Hurricanes in 1997, wore a green tux with a Whalers logo. The bridesmaids wore Whaler blue. The groomsmen wore Whalers jerseys.
The wedding took place on the ice at Gardner Veteran's Arena in Gardner, Mass., in the presence of friends, family, a Zamboni and – ironically, considering the Whalers’ legacy – a miniature Stanley Cup.
