Love was in the air Friday in Raleigh County.

What better way to celebrate everlasting love than by a Valentine's Day wedding? Mark and Diana of Beckley became Mr. and Mrs. Sizemore in the Raleigh County Courthouse.

The two became one under Judge Kirkpatrick surrounded by family and close friends. Kirkpatrick told 59News Valentine's Day is one of the most popular days to get married.

"It's something that they can remember. They don't have any problems remembering their anniversary. Valentine's is a day of love and a lot of folks think of that on that day," he said.

Judge Kirkpatrick told us he normally officiates almost a dozen weddings on Valentine's Day, but many canceled on Friday because of the recent snowstorm.
