    Daniel Falcone said it’s a date he’ll never forget.

    “How can you?” he asked. “1-2-3, 11-12-13, absolutely. It’s great.”

    “Oh, it’s wonderful. I’m with the love of my life,” he said. “It’s taken a long time to get here. We chose this date because it’s special to us, so we did it!”

    “We did it!” Sivon Falcone said, at the same time that her husband continued, “We’re here!”

    “We’re happy!” he added, beaming at his bride.
