AMESBURY, Mass. - Couples often hold weddings on significant dates, but a Massachusetts couple was able to symbolize their love for eachother and their love for their hometown with a special date this week.
Cheryl Bennett and Steven DeLong, longtime residents of Amesbury, tied the knot on Wednesday, Jan. 9, 2013. The same date as the town's ZIP code: 01913.
The happy couple held a simple, short outdoor ceremony at a gazebo in the center of town.
"What better place and time to do it? People just pick dates all the time, so to have a date with such significance is really special," said Bennett.
Bennett said the ZIP code wedding idea was hers, and fit with her fascination for numbers. Her favorite numbers are 11 and 22, and she said she knew instantly that DeLong was 'the one' after discovering his birthday was Nov. 22.
