Video: Unusual circumstances led to couple getting married in courthouse bathroom

A toilet is not the romantic location that comes to mind for a wedding.

When Brian and Maria Schulz showed up to a US courthouse to get married, they had no idea they would find themselves saying their 'I do's' in a ladies toilet.

The bride and groom arrived with family and friends at Monmouth County Courthouse to get hitched when unforeseen circumstances led to the unusual location change for the ceremony.

Brian's mother began to have breathing issues shortly after the ceremony began and felt she was having an asthma attack.

Officers rushed her to the bathroom to give her oxygen and wait for paramedics to arrive. Concerned about her health, the couple realised they may need to postpone their wedding and wait a little while longer. "The couple was clearly upset about the mom and having to postpone their wedding in which they would have to wait another 45 days for a new marriage license to be processed," read a post about the incident on Monmouth County Sheriff's Office Facebook page.

Also, the ceremony wouldn't be able to go on because the mother-of-the-groom had already signed the marriage license and needed to be present, the Mirror reported.

Unable to leave the bathroom, the couple's options seemed bleak. Until it was suggested that maybe they could get hitched in the ladies bathroom.

The pair agreed and with the wedding party and Honorable Judge Katie Gummer they proceeded with the ceremony in the new "venue" on January 2.

The Mirror quotes Sheriff Shaun Golden: “I commend the sheriff’s officers and EMTs involved in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of the groom’s mother.” Adding, "As for the nuptials, the quick thinking and determination of our officers and commitment from the judge to perform the ceremony in unusual circumstances led to one happy couple."

Monmouth County Sheriff's Office also shared video of the couple's sweet nuptials that has garnered over 8,000 views.
