ANY marriage will weather a few storms and one American couple faced their first on their wedding day... literally.

"I looked up and you could see my face when I saw the wall of dust," said Gus Luna. "I knew we were going to get hammered."

Luna and his wife were wed in Florence, Arizona on September 10. A few minutes into the ceremony, a huge dust storm hit with fury.
