FLORENCE, Ariz. -- Jennifer and Gus Luna planned the perfect, picturesque, outdoor Arizona wedding until an uninvited guest showed up: the dust storm of the century.  

The couple says they thought they could get through the entire ceremony and didn't realize how fast the wall of dust stretching 2,000 feet high would move.

The best part or worst part, depending on how you look at it, was it was captured on video. With almost a million views, this entertaining video became a YouTube hit.

The Lunas, a local couple, became a worldwide sensation and since the video went viral they were featured around the country.  

Given the choice to go back in time and have mother nature on their side during their wedding day, Gus Luna says, either way is fine but it's been an awesome experience.

Their advice for other couples planning a weddings during monsoon? They say, "Have a backup plan or have it covered. You can always plan but weather is unpredictable, you just never know."
