MONTERREY, Mexico (Reuters) - 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 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.
