Hundreds of local couples are spending their first day as husband and wife, after tying the knot in Valentine's Day celebrations.

Close to 200 couples exchanged vows at the County Clerk's office Saturday.

Matthew and Suhaila Diaz-Iverson were among the newlyweds. They met face-to-face for the first time one year ago Saturday and so it was only fitting that they got married on Valentine's Day.

"We were thinking about maybe early spring, summer, but why wait you know, just do it now. Why wait," they said.

Another added benefit to tying the knot on Valentine's Day - they have no excuse for forgetting their anniversary and can get away with buying one gift, instead of two.
