U.S.-Canadian couple get married at border so both families can attend wedding

It's been a tough time for romance, but one cross-border couple refused to let COVID-19 travel restrictions get in the way of their love. 

When the pandemic hindered their wedding plans, Montana-native Kadee Jensen and her Alberta-born husband Jaxon realized that it was time to get creative.

Rather than postponing their trip down the aisle, the couple started to think up inventive ways that they could still tie the knot with both of their families present.

After a lot of thought, the love-birds' final solution was to seal their vows right at the U.S.-Canada border. 

"We were finally able to discover a way that both of our families could be at our wedding," said Kadee, sharing photographs from her special day online.

"So grateful for the border guards who allowed us to get married at the line dividing Canada and the U.S.," she added.

As the couple chose to get married on the Canadian side of the border, Kadee's dad Randy walked her down the "aisle" through a barbed wire fence line. 

"Never thought my dad would walk me down the aisle through a fence, but pretty cool if you ask me," Kadee said.

The newlywed finished up the post by declaring her unconventional wedding to be the "best day ever."
