ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - It's a once-in-a-century day: 12-12-12.
People around Albuquerque decided to seize the day by making the most of the 12 trifecta.
The Celebration of Love drive-through chapel was busy throughout the day with couples who wanted their wedding date to be lucky – or easy to remember.
"We did pick it because we thought it would be unique - well, maybe not unique because many people are doing it as well," said bride Carla Sedillo.
Another couple, the newly-minted Mr. and Mrs. Pearson, insist the wedding date is a fluke.
"It was by accident; it was the first day I had off," said bride Whitney Pearson. "I work a lot of hours. I happened to get it off so we decided to schedule it."
"It adds to the greatness of it, I guess," added the groom, Bradley Pearson.
12-12-12 is not only once-in-a-century; it's once in a lifetime.
