A bride and groom that planned to wed Wednesday night had to call off the nuptials at the last minute because the groom, who is from Belgium, came down with a case of the measles, according to a report posted on the website.

The wedding was to be held at the Va’Yoel Moshe wedding hall in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, New York. But the groom was found to be ill with the measles virus upon his arrival in the United States.


The decision to cancel the wedding was reportedly a decision imposed by the New York City Health Department when the groom was discovered with the symptoms of the illness upon his arrival at the airport, according to the website.
