JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- How many guests make for a "full house" at a wedding? One local couple will have about a million.
Bethany Philips and Geoffrey Dubie, who live in Jacksonville, met in Iraq while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. They live in Jacksonville.
They entered a contest to be the first people ever married in a ceremony at Times Square on New Year's Eve.
After looking through nearly 2,000 entries, Get Married Media chose Philips and Dubie to say "I do" as the ball drops with the world watching.
Philips, originally from Georgia, is heading to Florida State College Jacksonville to study nursing, and Dubie, from North Carolina, is studying at Jacksonville University.
The couple chose Jacksonville to start their life together after their service in the military.
