Couple Marries At The Top Of The Paso Del Norte Bridge
Even during a pandemic, love has no boundaries for one local couple who tied the knot at the top of the Paso Del Norte Bridge last week.
Last week Heriberto Sosa and his fiancé Ana married at the top of the Paso Del Norte Bridge amidst an ongoing pandemic. Surrounded by a handful of family members and an ordained minister, the couple married as onlookers crossing the bridge cheered and honked their horns in their honor.
According to KVIA, the young couple originally met in Mexico through family and have been friends for the past 15 years until Sosa finally got the guts to ask Ana out and soon after ask for her hand in marriage.
Neither was about to let a pandemic pause their planned nuptials even though the two lived on different sides of the bridge as Heriberto is a U.S. citizen and Ana is a Mexican citizen.
With the help of an ordained minister, the couple wed in a very humble ceremony that lasted no more than five minutes but was filled with intense emotion and sincere love.
The ongoing pandemic has halted and postponed many weddings across the globe but clever couples are finding creative and novel ways to marry.
Recently a couple in New York City was spotted getting married on the Brooklyn Bridge. Just like the couple's love story, fate intervened when a passerby captured the perfect picture of their intimate moment. It is the only picture the couple has of their wedding since no guests were present at the ceremony.
