In normal times (ha!), seeing a just-married couple in Central Park can seem lovely but unoriginal. Brides and grooms stroll through these parts day after day, celebrating holy or rushed or uncertain matrimony.
Today, a Central Park wedding is a big deal, physically and symbolically. It’s a reminder that life is precarious and deserves celebration. To get married anywhere except in your living room, you need to go to great lengths — like getting someone to perform the ceremony in a mask.
Stephanie Spear saw this wedding in the park on Wednesday near The Pool, which is on the West side of the park near 102nd Street.
Congratulations, happy couple!
As Johnny Cash sang: “We got married in a fever/hotter than a pepper sprout.”
