    Wednesday’s 12/12/12 date was certainly a memorable one – particularly for 116 newlywed couples in San Diego County.

    According to final stats released Thursday from the San Diego County Assessor/Recorder/Clerk’s office, a total of 124 marriage licenses were issued locally on 12/12/12, and a total of 116 civil ceremonies were performed at the County Administration Center in Chula Vista, El Cajon and San Marcos offices.

    Assessor/Recorder/Commissioner of Civil Marriages, Ernest J. Dronenburg, Jr., said all couples who wanted to obtain a marriage license or get married on 12/12/12 were successfully served.

    “12/12/12 wedding ceremony reservations were nearly completely booked,” said Dronenburg in a media statement. “We accommodated all couples who wanted to be married by assigning additional staff, and at our Downtown location, we offered walk-in service for couples without appointments.”

    In comparison to other unique dates that have passed in recent years -- including 7/7/07, 8/8/08 and 9/9/09 – this year's special day held its own.

    According to San Diego County clerk records, 107 marriage licenses and civil ceremonies were issued on 7/7/07, while 195 marriage licenses and 192 civil ceremonies were requested on 8/8/08.

    On 9/9/09, 120 marriage licenses were issued in San Diego, and 73 civil ceremonies were performed.

    Wednesday’s 12/12/12 date was the last of the repeating dates until January 1, 2101 -- making it that much more special.
