HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. - The bride wore white - and a face mask.
A Chicago couple married in surgical masks and latex gloves Sunday after learning less than 48 hours before that they both had swine flu.
Ilana Jackson and Jeremy Fierstien went ahead with the ceremony after doctors assured them guests wouldn't be at serious risk.
But to be sure, the 26-year-olds kept a good three-metre distance from family and friends at all times, even walking around the gathering instead of down the aisle at a Highland Park synagogue.
Jackson says they'd joked about swine flu after both experienced vomiting, achy limbs and fever.
But they never thought they really had it.
She says the circumstances were unfortunate but that they took it in stride.
