New St Patricks Day Traditions from GCFL

The yearly tradition of attending and documenting the Ocean City Parade took a back seat this year.  Instead we had a special family event to attend, a St. Partrick’s Wedding.

Irish Maryland Wedding!
Cousin Brandon, a cop in PG County and Christina, a lawyer; their wedding was not just your standard affair but included all the great touches that made it a St Patrick’s celebration as well.
Beautiful bride and groom, my cousin!
 Irish Cloggers, kilts worn by the Grooms men and of course Guinness served at the reception and of course bagpipes, were just a few of the highlights of a typical Irish celebration.

What made it even better was the gathering of all family but especially the Patriarchs.

The church and the reception locations were separated by a stretch of Charles Street in Baltimore that has one of the finest Irish pubs in the area,  Mick O’Sheas, and a couple other great spots.  Time between the ceremony and the reception allowed for the opportunity to meet some new friends from the wedding on both sides of the aisle.  A couple Irish Car bombs and rounds of beers all in honor of the new married couple made for a wedding experience like none other.

It was a great new tradition of visiting new places and making new friends for some good clean fun. Where should we celebrate St. Patrick’s next year? How about getting Berlin into the mix!

As the owner of Good Clean Fun Life, an arts and entertainment magazine online, I have had the opportunity to spread good vibes, promote entertainment, artists, and events across the Mid-Atlantic region. GCFL provides me with many opportunities to practice a few of my favorite hobbies: photography, socializing, and blogging.
