Re: Alternate locations for an Orthodox wedding/marriage ceremony in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania #usa

"married in the rabbi's office rather than in the main sanctuary (not sure if that's what the primary area of worship was called). Would there have been a precedent, or reason? "

My mother said she got married in a blue suit - I don't know where, but it wasn't a big wedding, and money wasn't the issue. The issue was that WW II was raging in Europe (and the US wasn't in it yet, but soon), and a big todo wasn't proper. 

Perhaps your grandparents married near or during a war?  Or Covid-19? Or Spanish flu?
