Ashley Burlage refused to let a blizzard and a citywide travel ban keep her from marrying her fiancé, Casey, on Saturday.

The 32-year-old bride, with her wedding party in tow, took the subway from her SoHo hotel to the church of St. Paul the Apostle in the Upper West Side.

"Everyone was in really good spirits so I knew that somehow we were getting married," Burlage told ABC News.

A priest had offered to officiate the ceremony at Burlage’s hotel and a taxi driver said he’d risk driving her to the church. But Burlage, who had joked about how "hysterical" it would be to take the subway to her wedding, said she was taking public transportation with the rest of the group.

"We took all the bridesmaids and about 40 guests all piled inside," she said.

Less than 10 stops later, Burlage and Casey were married.

"The most important thing is that we had the people that we love," the bride said
