Janette Diaz of Schererville, Ind., and Jeremy Rodriguez ofChicago

Rodriguez, a U.S. Marine who has already served one tour of duty in
Iraq and will be doing a tour in Afghanistan in 2011, leaves Monday for
Camp Lejeune in North Carolina.
The couple arrived for their marriage at 6 a.m., well before the office opened at 9 a.m.
