GRAYSON COUNTY -- The perfect rings, the right guy, and one lucky day, and it all has Angela Van Steeter feeling giddy.

That's because at exactly 12 past 12, on the twelfth day of the twelfth month of 2012, she was married to her longtime love, Lee.

"12/12/12! Last time you can do that," she said.

While some might say the day is just another day and another set of numbers, for the Van Steeters, it's a date they don't want to forget.

And the Van Steeters aren't alone.

Couples all over the world exchanged vows to mark the days unique date.

One heartwarming story came from a young Houston couple, that got married in a hospital after the husband was diagnosed with cancer.

"Love never should wait. If you love somebody, be with them, no matter what it takes, and that was what me and Ryan did," newlywed Lindsay Miller said.

In Grayson County, we're told six couples got hitched today.

After many years together, the Van Steeters say it took a date on the calendar to remind them there's no time like the present.
