The couple and few guests wearing face masks for this coronavirus-era ceremony (April 2020) at a small park in Elgin along the Fox River.
The groom is a firefighter. He realized that if he died of covid-19 that his significant other would not get his pension. They live in Cook County which was not, at that time, issuing marriage licenses. So they got one in Kane County. They were married in a small park along the Fox River in the Kane County part of Elgin in April of 2020.
