Two lucky couples will tie the knot during this afternoon's total solar eclipse, courtesy of Akron Municipal Court.

Court officials say even though they had originally planned to pick just one winning couple for their Eclipse Wedding essay contest, they wound up picking two; Toni Auvil and Ryan Arce, along with Timmy Bryan and Kylie Thanasiu.

Timmy and Kylie say they have been sweethearts since meeting at the age of 16 at Firestone High School, while Ryan and Toni have been together since they met while working together at Main Street Gourmet in Cuyahoga Falls, back in 2010.

Judge David Hamilton will officiate at the ceremony, which begins at 1 p.m. at the Mustill Store Museum. It will be followed by an eclipse party that will last through the moments of complete darkness known as the "totality", which starts at 3:15, and  the party will continue until 4 p.m.
