Couple married with help from Holyoke mayor

Jose's uncle is a friend of the mayor

WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – With a lot of holiday season help from Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse, Jose Vasquez and Marilyn Rosario were married Saturday at Stanley Park in Westfield.

Before Jose Vasquez and his bride Marilyn could say ‘I do’ on Saturday at Stanley Park, they discovered they needed their marriage license and Holyoke City Hall would be closed on Friday.

That’s where Jose’s uncle, Jose Gutierez, helped out. Mayor Alex Morse is a friend of his. Gutierez says, “I texted Alex, he texted back right away, and he did us a favor. That was great, that was awesome.”

The rest is history. The mayor opened the city clerk’s office, enabling Jose and Marilyn to get their marriage license and make Saturday’s long awaited wedding possible.

Vasquez says, “I just thank god he did us a favor. I thank my uncle a lot, I’m glad that happened.”

Marilyn Vasquez said, “The mayor, the famous uncle, just count our blessings, we couldn’t be any happier than we are today.”

The happy couple starting life together as man and wife was right on schedule, never to forget the 11th hour favor from Holyoke mayor Alex Morse.
