PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Japanese couple traveled more than 6,000 miles to get married in Philadelphia with some help from the organization that first brought the groom to the city six years ago.

Philly.com reports (https://bit.ly/1VMzk36 ) 33-year-old Yusuke Yoda and 35-year-old Kazuko Inoue tied the knot Thursday during the Rotary Club’s weekly luncheon.

The linguistics lecturers at Tokyo University tried to arrange their wedding from across the Pacific, but didn’t know any caterers, photographers, reception halls or even a judge to marry them.

That’s when they remembered the Rotary Club. The organization had sponsored a scholarship to bring Yoda to the University of Pennsylvania for graduate school.

The Rotarians found a judge, a photographer and a cake. They toasted the newlyweds who traveled across the world to get married at a Rotary lunch.
