Newlyweds Lisa and Kevin Huggard, of Norwich, sent a flock of mallard ducks flying as they moved into position for some wedding photos after being married by Justice of the Peace Marie Tyler Wiley in Olde Mistick Village in Stonington Thursday.

The Huggards had been making different wedding plans but saw the free ceremonies offered by Wiley and decided to take advantage of the opportunity. "It's a dream come true for us," said Lisa. This is the fifth year that Wiley has offered the free officiations. Couples with a valid marriage license in the town could choose between one of five ceremonies of varied length and formality. Wiley married six couples by noon.

No idea; I was watching the exciting Bruins-Rangers game.
