NYC Couple Married On The Street By A Friend In A Window

Reilly Jennings, 28 and Amanda Wheeler, 38, decided they wanted to move up their wedding date from October amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

As the couple worried over COVID-19 and how it would affect their upcoming wedding date, they decided they were ready to get married this past Friday. 

However, when New York's official marriage license was closed, Jennings and Wheeler turned to a close friend, Matt Wilson, who is a licenses marriage officiant. 

Practicing proper social distancing rules, Jennings and Wheeler got married on a New York street while Wilson performed the ceremony hanging from his apartment's fourth-floor window. 

Wilson quoted an excerpt from "Love in the Time of Cholera," the novel by Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Márquez, to set the mood for their coronavirus version of a wedding ceremony. 

Jennings recalled the special moment to the Daily Mail saying, "It was perfect, classic New York. Everything I love about this city was encompassed in that moment." 

As for honeymoon plans, the newlyweds plan to self-quarantine and watch Netflix together.
