TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Love is in the air in Pima County. More than forty couples tied the knot for Valentine's Day weekend. The newlyweds gathered at the Pima County Justice Court to exchange their vows.

The county says they always have more marriages than usual ahead of Valentine's Day. One couple explains why they chose this holiday to say 'I do.' 

"It's Valentine's, it's just a special love weekend," said newlywed Francisco Silveira.  "It's a reunion, you're making a family with someone that you really love and that you want to be together with."
 
Couples can head to the courthouse for marriages every Tuesday and Friday.
