When couples are planning their weddings, some brides dream of seeing their big day covered in the newspapers. But probably not the way that Irene Sanzone and John Fuchs wound up on the pages of the New York Post. Their relatively small wedding was held yesterday at a church in Staten Island with approximately 25 guests in attendance. Of course, they did it after the city was supposed to be on lockdown for all nonessential activity and gatherings of more than ten people were banned.
This led to them being blasted in the newspapers and even by the archdiocese of their church. When they came out the doors as man and wife, I wonder if people were throwing rice, birdseed or rotten tomatoes?
Here comes the bride — coronavirus be damned.
A Staten Island couple threw caution — and a slew of dire government warnings — to the wind Sunday by getting married in front of nearly two dozen people, several of them elderly, at a local Catholic church.
Irene Sanzone and John Fuchs’ afternoon nuptials at Our Lady of Pity Church in the Bulls Head section of the borough raised the wrath of the Archdiocese of New York, which oversees Staten Island’s parishes.
“The wedding was not in keeping with archdiocesan guidelines and should not have been held,’’ archdiocese spokesman Joseph Zwilling told The Post.
