But for two local Jersey City couples, they refused to let a virus take away their dreams of a big day.

Jersey City’s Official Instagram page posted the happy nuptials of two Jersey City couples today, officiated by Mayor Steven Fulop and Stacey Flanagan, Director of Health and Human Services. The ceremonies took place at City Hall on March 25, 2020.
