Donaldsonville couple getting married on 12/12/12 | Events
Katina Williams has a wedding day countdown on her iphone, but she doesn't really need a reminder. It’s a day she and many others will never forget.
The wedding will be held Wednesday, Dec. 12 at noon. That’s 12/12/12 at 12. The wedding party is made up of 12 bridesmaids and 12 groomsmen. Both the wedding and reception will take place at Palazzo Bernado banquet facility in Donaldsonville.
“I’m ecstatic and he’s ecstatic too,” Williams, 40, tells 9News Neighborhoods.
She came up with the date for three reasons. It’s her fiancé Craig Haynes’ birthday. The last digit of her birthday, Haynes’ birthday and her son’s birthday add up to 12 and ‘the sequence won’t ever happen again,’” Williams says.
Williams met Craig, 36, about nine years ago at work. After they had their son, Craig Jr, in 2005, they started planning the wedding.
When they first looked at the calendar, she suggested they do it on her birthday in July. Then Craig countered with scheduling it on his birthday. They liked the idea of having it on such a unique day.
“We won’t forget our anniversary,” she says laughing.
