Couple in their late 70s tie the knot in front of hundreds on Zoom
A couple in their 70s said "I do" in front of hundreds of family members and friends - on Zoom.
Carol Ryan and Peterson said the coronavirus came into the picture just as they decided to get married.
Thanks to technology, the couple in their late-70s tied the knot on the Ossining waterfront in May in front of hundreds of their loved ones. The couple got the idea to have the online wedding after they attended several Zoom events with the Ethical Culture Society of Northern Westchester.
The couple met on campus at Ramapo College in New Jersey 50 years ago, but it wasn't until last year during the planning of the college's 50th anniversary that their lives finally crossed paths.
Two months into their marriage, the couple is turning the pandemic into a positive - including taking several secluded mini-moons.
The newlyweds say they plan to have a traditional wedding ceremony on their one-year anniversary.
