    RENO, NV (CNN) -- Two high school sweethearts got married in a very unexpected place, the Reno-Tahoe International Airport.

    Navy sailor Dylan Ruffer was returning from an 11-month tour in war-torn Syria. Madison Meinhardt was in the middle of the airport waiting in her wedding dress.

    Dozens of people crowded near the escalators to welcome Dylan home and witness a beautiful wedding of the two 19-year olds from Chester, California.

    The two planned to marry a year ago, but Dylan's deployment was unexpectedly extended. Three weeks ago, Madison e-mailed the airport and said they wanted to be married as fast as possible.

    The airport and a number of other businesses set it all up for them complete with flowers, a reception with a DJ and the marriage license.
