Listen to the Story.

Lauren Goodman and Nathan Tyler were married in New York today. But Goodman didn't watch Friday morning's royal nuptials in London.

She said she meant to but wanted to get a good night's sleep ahead of her own wedding. 'Vanity first!', Goodman joked, adding: "I'm still looking for my invitation."

Soon after, Candy Kugel and her husband-to-be Chuck Hunnewell headed in for their wedding ceremony. It was a marriage for love, among other things.

"My health insurance runs out at the end of April," said Kugel.

Finally there was Joel Brown and his new bride Monserrat Margalef. Friday they were going by another title, 'the Bronx Royals'.

"She's a Yankee fan, I'm a Mets fan – but we love each other," said Brown.

Unlike the others, Monserrat Margalef did wake up early to see the Royal Wedding.

"It was fun to watch. It was like a getting ready movie," she said.

For Brown and Margalef, the wedding in London was a warm-up for their own main event, one that didn't need all the horses and parades and flypasts.

"We wish the best for them but there's nothing like New York," said Brown.

"We have the entire city waiting for us and we're going to travel it today. And for the next 20, 30 years."
