BLOOMINGTON, Ill -- A local Marine is home to surprise his fiance and surprise her with a wedding.

The couple, 19-year-old Brian Combites and 18-year-old Sarah Davison went to the McLean County Courthouse Friday day to get their marriage license.

Davison's mother has been helping Combites plan the surprise wedding.

Combites said he is stationed in Virginia and this weekend would be the only chance to marry his love for awhile, "We've been planning on getting married for quite a while we just didn't know when we would be able to do it."

Davison said, "My mom asked us for me to graduate Tuesday at Bloomington High School. She wanted me to wait until I got done with High School to get everything moving on."

Combites heads back to Virginia Wednesday.
