Couples Say, "I Do," on 11-12-13

Posted: Updated:

11-12-13 is one of those unusual dates that only comes once in a lifetime, which is why many couples chose to get married today and make a memory to last. 

Wedding bells are ringing for several couples who wanted to take advantage of a unique wedding date. 

"He's a marine so the birthday is on the 10th and veterans day is the 11th and if he forgets the 12th he's just done," said bride Belinda Strong.

The couple met in high school but re-connected thirty years later. Her maiden name is Love and with Terry's last name of Strong they know their love will last regardless of the date.

"It wouldn't matter what day it was that I married her, I would always remember," said her groom Terry Strong.

And it will be a day to remember for many other couples who shared the idea of tying the knot. Judge William Severin married four sets of brides and grooms, in just a few hours. 

"I've just been running around for the last couple hours picking up flowers and the actual wedding bands and everything and finally we got here. A little bit late and forgot the marriage license, which is just a little important," said groom Jerry Owens.

But they don't care what TIME they got married, Mr and Mrs Owens are just happy they did. They met about a year ago working at Applebee's while Hanh was here on an exchange program from Vietnam. 

"Every time I came to work I just said Hi Jerry, you know. So every time I just said Hi Jerry how you doing. (jerry) She cooked in the kitchen and we would just kind of talk to each other through the food window," said bride Hanh Nguyen.

Now all the happy couples say they are just excited to start their lives together. 

"I'm so glad I finally get the best woman I've ever met in my life forever and ever," said strong. 

Also getting married on the unique date was Hebron native and country singer Gwen Sebastian.
