To keep their privacy the actor and actress declined to reveal the location of their wedding ceremony as well as the date and time. When Foster went through his pockets to find two dollars to pay the clerk for their marriage license he realized he had forgotten to bring any money and had to ask his fiancé to borrow the sum.
