Q.Early Freeze, Will The Flowers Still Produce Seeds Even Though They Were Frozen?

In Colorado, while my African marigolds were in full bloom, they were hit by an early freeze. Can I now take off the blooms and allow them to dry out to use the seeds? Thanks

My understanding is that seeds need to be left on the plant to mature. Picking them too early will stop the process. A freeze should not prevent the seeds from maturing.
