PHOENIX -- Saturday’s storm is making a lot of Arizona couples very nervous about rain on their wedding day.

One couple is ready to tie the knot at the Valley Garden Center, rain or not, and they said they won’t let a little rain damper their spirits.

They strongly believe 12-13-14 will be a perfect day for a wedding.

Andrew Mason said he knew the day he met Loren Castaneda that she was “the one.”

“I wanted to marry her, and six months later I asked her dad if I could," Mason said.

They were rehearsing Friday night for their special day, 12-13-14.

“The number is special and so is she,” Mason said. “No matter what, I'm never going to be able to forget her because I'll be with her every day, and when I'm not, I'll be thinking of her. And that number is very hard to forget, so it kind of goes together."

They found their perfect spot to say their vows.

“We like the tree and everything, and we're going to be in front of it. I just think it's really beautiful and big,” Mason said..

“Just the way that it hangs over, we chose that, and we will be standing in front of the tree so that we can get great photos with it," he said.

But Mother Nature may call for other plans since there is a big chance it will rain Saturday.

‘I've been checking the weather like every hour," Mason said.

“Hoping it passes before the ceremony starts,” Castaneda added.

And if it doesn't, “We've got a layout for inside in case it rains,” Mason said.

But Mason and Castaneda are crossing their fingers.

”It would kind of be a shame if we weren’t able to get married in front of it," they said.

Either way, the couple said they'll be happy as long as they're hand in hand.

“I love her, and I can’t wait for it to be official," Mason said.
