Magali Jaskiewicz, 26, petitioned to be granted a posthumous wedding to Jonathan George, her partner of six years and father of her two children, after he died in a road accident two days following his Nov. 25, 2008, marriage proposal, The Guardian reported Tuesday.
Jaskiewicz stood in her wedding gown next to a picture of George during Saturday's ceremony in Dommary-Baroncourt.
"I'm not really in the mood to celebrate," she said after the ceremony. "We're going to drink a cup of coffee and I will thank those who have supported me."
French officials said dozens of posthumous weddings are approved each year.
