LUDLOW, KY (FOX19) -

A local couple said 'I do' during Monday's solar eclipse.

Alfonse Mele II and Michelle Scheider were married at the beginning of the eclipse of the sun and the moon.

"He named the dates and we just went forward with it. We would've been married by now but because of the eclipse, we waited and people wanted to come see it and be with us. We were happy about it," Scheider said. 

The blessed event was held at the Ludlow Bromley Yacht Club.

Guests were offered glasses to watch the eclipse.

Kenton County Magistrate and Justice of the Peace Stephen J. Hoffman performed the ceremony.

This was Hoffman's first "eclipse nuptials" since he began performing marriages in 1989, he said in a prepared statement.
