It was "Wedding Central" on the ninth floor of Albuquerque's Metro Courthouse Friday.

Plenty of couples wanting to tie the knot on Valentine's Day had their opportunity to say "I do" in front of a judge and make it legal.

There were plenty of reasons for some for making today their memorable day.

"Because, it would be a good anniversary. Easy to remember," newlywed Amanda Morrison said. "Celebrate two-in-one. Plus, the date, 2/14/14!"

Approximately 100 couples got married Friday at the courthouse, 15 of them were same-sex couples.
