Midland/Odessa, TX - For some it’s just another day but for others it’s the perfect date to get married.
West Texans flocked to the Justice of the Peace courtrooms on December 12, 2012 to say, “I do.”
Ector County Judge Woody Kupper even married a couple at 12:12 p.m.
Several JP Judges across the Basin tell CBS 7 their schedules were booked today marrying people.
“I have a thing with odd numbers,” said Katherine Hernandez-Faulkner, “We plan on getting married on 2013, but I don't like thirteen.”
For many newlyweds at the Ector and Midland County Justice of The Peace being at the right place at the right time got them to where they are now.
“I got invited to dinner at her house by my sister,” said newlywed Patrick Faulkner, “We would've still met if I didn't go, but it would've been a lot smoother.”
“We met in the bar,” said newlywed Mallory Brazeal, “I wasn't even going to go that night but I’m glad I did.”
“I met her on the Internet,” said Kent Ellison about his wife Lela, “It was a free weekend and we both signed up for a dating site, glad I stayed in that night.”
Its a new era together, cherishing what they love the most and a time to never forget.
“I won't forget the date,” Kent Ellison said.
“There is no way he could forget it,” Katherine Faulkner said.
“It’s a date to remember,” said Joshua Brazeal.
This date wont happen until the next 100 years on December 12, 2112
