CHRISTCHURCH, New Zealand —

In a bright moment amid the misery of New Zealand's earthquake, a woman rescued from the quake zone has gone forward days later with her planned wedding.

Emma Howard was rescued Tuesday after her office block collapsed in the 6.3-magnitude earthquake in Christchurch.

On Friday, she went ahead with her marriage to Chris Greenslade. When she was trapped, Howard managed to contact Greenslade on her cell phone and get him to direct rescuers to where she was.

The couple didn't speak to reporters at the ceremony Friday, but Howard told Radio New Zealand on Tuesday that going ahead with the wedding was a sign the disaster could not break people's spirit.

(This version CORRECTS spelling of Greenslade in third paragraph. )
