Hooters Co-Founder Marries … Hooters?
CLEARWATER – Ed Droste, co-founder of Hooters, made his business a little more personal by marrying five-time Hooters calendar girl Marsha Posey on Saturday.
The Chapel by the Sea on Clearwater Beach was packed with about 800 guests. Most men wore Hawaiian shirts, shorts and flip-flops; most women wore sundresses and big hats.
The hats were a nod to the Kentucky Derby theme. When Posey, 27, was about to enter the chapel, the sound of a horse race bugle replaced the traditional wedding march.
Posey and Droste, 55, joked around during the ceremony, to the delight and laughter of attendees. Droste is known as a practical joker, and friends said Posey shares his sense of humor.
