India Bolden and Elvis Jones were married on Friday March 20th in the Onondaga Town Hall as New York State began to shut down from the outbreak of COVID-19. The couple wanted an intimate gathering but didn’t imagine being limited to two guests—a condition of the court. India brought her daughter and Elvis his mother as witnesses.
