Age of consent and marriage location

Classification: Query
Surnames: D'Amore Barbella
My ggmother BARBELLA and ggfather D'AMORE married in 1907. He arrived in US in 1903. She was born in Brooklyn. But she was only 13 when they got married (arranged marriage). Question: how and where would they have been married? Age of consent laws had been bumped up to 16+ in most states by 1900. Would they have traveled back to Italy or could there have been a proxy marriage?
