The change to citizenship wouldn't be automatic. He/She would be automatically eligible to file a "family based" application for "adjustment of status" or a change from H-1B to Permanent Residency ("Green Card" - not really green). After a mandatory period of holding a green card, the applicant would be allowed to apply for citizenship. Contact an Immigration attorney before you go ahead with the wedding. They will need some documentation/evidence of the marriage & your life together for the eventual application. If you contact them now, you can be sure to save everything you need to.
