Brian and Maria Schulz were set to tie the knot on Jan. 2 when the groom's mother had difficulty breathing.
She was taken to a women's room at the Monmouth County Courthouse, where sheriff's officers administered oxygen and called EMT's.
If they had postponed the wedding, they would have had to wait 45 days for a new marriage license. So one of the officers suggested holding the ceremony in the bathroom.
In a video posted on the sheriff's office Facebook page, Judge Katie Gummer performed the ceremony.
The groom's mother is doing fine.
