In case you haven't heard by now, today is 11/12/13!
In honor of the numerically relevant date that comes around but once in a lifetime, New York couple Shanel Manzano and Elliot Bryant decided to tie the knot on this morning's episode of the Today Show.
And to make their wedding more special, they married at exactly 9:10 a.m. (that's 9:10 on 11/12/13 people!).
The self-professed "math geeks" we're all smiles during the TV ceremony, which only last a few minutes and culminated with their first kiss as a married couple at 9:10 on the dot.
"It went by fast!" the blushing bride gushed to the Today show hosts afterwards.
"We both like incremental numbers and fluidity," Manzano told Willie Geist pre-ceremony. "And we're also math geeks, so if you add 11, 12, 13, it equals 9, which means long life."
Bryant, who proposed to Manzano at the Eiffel Tower in September, gushed of his bride, "She's my counsel. I go to her for everything. If I ever have a problem, she's my solution."
Manzano and Bryant aren't alone, though. According to TheKnot.com, about 3,000 couples registered to get married on 11/12/13, four times the number than any other Tuesday in November. "11/12/13 is a sequential pattern, and we have learned that couples love dates that have patterns," Brian Beitler, the company's chief marketing officer, told Today in a statement. "The last consecutive series of the century will occur next year, 12/13/14. It falls on a Saturday, so we predict this date could reach record breaking numbers."
