|Katherine Mulgrew (Mary Ryan) is getting a last minute touch up from
concerned Ryan's Hope staffers.
|Katherine Mulgrew (Mary Ryan) seems unusually calm and relaxed considering
her soon-to-be new status of Mrs. Jack Fenelli.
||"Having a wedding?--let us help you plan etc." The ads offer assistance
to prospective brides and their families. But imagine the help needed for
a wedding witnessed by thousands. The Ryan's Hope crew was
at St. Benedict the Moor Church on time--before sun-up in fact. The cast
arrived shortly after. Hours of preparation went into the proper lighting
of the church, the bride's dress--make-up and all the hundreds of little
details that kept everyone scurrying around and around and around.
Part of the wonderful fuss of preparing Mary
for her bridal debut was the attention to details.
Aside from her traditional wear--Mary had a
dime in her shoe--thanks to Claire Labine and her wedding! While
Claire Labine and Paul Avila Mayer were working on the wedding script,
Claire remembered her own wedding in 1958. And her dime in her shoe!
It's an old Irish tradition and we're sure Mary Ryan (Kate Mulgrew) loved
every minute of it. Even her Irish lace veil is steeped in the Irish Tradition!
The handmade veil was supplied by a women living in Carrickmacross; a small
town in Ireland, famed for its lace.
Also an Irish tradition are long and happy
marriages (like Maeve and Johnny), we all wish Mary and Jack the same success.
