Washington, DC asked in Immigration Law for Virginia

Q: Can I marry to GF who is here in US on Visitor visa?

I am a US citizen, and my GF is an Indian citizen and in Canada on a student visa. She got a US visitor and visited the US for a week in April 2019. Now we are planning to get married in Oct-2019, she will come here in the US for a week and get married and then she will go back to Canada. Meanwhile, I will start her paperwork (I-130). Just want to ask you if this is a good approach and if there are any things which I should consider.
