SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Hurricane Katrina forced Jacqueline Gordon first to the New Orleans Convention Center and then to Utah. And along the way, she found love.

Gordon and Ronald Herbert are getting married at the Utah Army National Guard's Camp Williams on Friday.

Their six-day courtship took place mostly in an airport terminal, a plane and Camp Williams.

The two first met at the convention center. But it wasn't love at first site, Gordon say they didn't connect that first day. The two then parted ways and met up again at the airport in New Orleans, where talk turned flirtatious.

Throughout the four-hour flight to Utah, the pair got to know each better by talking about everything from life, religion and God. And since arriving at Camp Williams on September fourth, Gordon and Herbert have been inseparable.

After tying the knot, the Herberts plan to settle in Salt Lake City.
