Last year 11 lucky couples were married at City Hall on 11-11-11. Again, this year, civil wedding ceremonies will be offered on Wednesday, 12-12-12. This will be the last opportunity to have the palindrome wedding date unless couples want to wait 89 years for the next possible occurrence on 01-01-2101. Much has been speculated about the symbolic meaning of 12-12-12, but couples getting married will give the date its own special meaning.
If you, or someone you know, would like to get married at City Hall on 12-12-12, please contact the City Clerk’s office as soon as possible at 510-747-4804 to schedule your civil ceremony as there is limited availability.
