11-11-11 Is A Magic Number For Local Couples
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - For some brides, this Friday is a date to look forward to.
Jennifer Johnson of Folsom, Delaware County, marries her fiance Kevin Kebea on Friday.
“November 11th 2011.”
Johnson says two years into their four year courtship, she knew she wanted an 11-11-11 wedding date, which she says has special significance to her family.
“It’s also my parents’ anniversary. They’ll be celebrating their 33rd anniversary on 11-11-11 which if you add up equals 33, so that’s pretty fun!”
All the numbers seemed to align for this couple. The groom is also 33 years old, but that’s not the only reason they wanted to get married on 11-11.
“Kevin and I, my fiance, had a goofy tradition of when the clock hit 11:11 of telling each other that we love each other so I think it just was fitting!”
