The Phillie Phanatic didn’t exactly blend into the wedding backdrop at The Old Mill in Rose Valley but he was, after all, a special guest at the Oct. 4 wedding of Kevin and Shannon Doherty, reports fox29.com.
The couple are both huge Philadelphia sports fans. Kevin Doherty, particularly, is a “huge Phillies fan and loves the Phanatic, so his bride-to-be, Shannon Doherty, thought it was appropriate that the Phanatic be there before they exchanged their vows.
“Kevin is the sweetest man in the world and I knew our first look could be emotional for him,” Shannon explained to FOX 29. “So, I wanted to do anything I could to bring some humor and fun to the big moment.”
Kevin removed a blindfold while Shannon stood behind watching on.
“No way!” Kevin laughs at the sight of the Phillie Phanatic wearing a veil.
The Phillie Phanatic responded by pointing and laughing before laying a big smacker on him.
Then Kevin saw Shannon for the first time on their wedding day.
Tears followed and the couple embraced..
The Phanatic reportedly helped make sure the wedding went off without a hitch.
