Marriage Certificate for Plutarco and Manuela

The marriage certificate copy below comes from the Arizona State Library, History & Archives Division in Phoenix, for my great-grandparents, Plutarco Campuzano and Manuela Portillo.
The marriage license was obtained on 8 November 1923, almost a year after Manuela arrived in the US for the first time. They were married on 1 December 1923 by Catholic priest Friar Lucas Tristamy. At the bottom is a note that the copy recorded in 1961 was mailed to 453 South Main Street - this is located in the heart of Barrio Viejo.

I do not yet know the relationship between the witnesses, Eliza and Francisco Sermeno, and my great-grandparents. In the 1930 US Census, Francisco appears as a painter, so perhaps he was a friend and colleague of Plutarco. In the 1920 US Census, it shows Francisco and Eliza were brother & sister.
