Stoughton Couple Gets Married at 12:12 p.m. on 12/12/12

Joseph Fisher and Nicholas Blanco had their wedding ceremony at Stoughton's Town Hall December 12, 2012.

Joseph Fisher and Nicholas Blanco shouldn't have any trouble remembering their wedding anniversary - the Fisher-Blanco couple were married during a ceremony at Stoughton's Town Hall Wednesday afternoon, December 12, 2012 - 12/12/12.

It's the century's last sequential date, with the next coming Jan. 1, 2101 01/01/01. Another 12/12/12 won't roll around until Dec. 12, 2112.

The Fisher-Blanco wedding started just after 12 p.m. so the couple was officially married by 12:12 p.m. on 12/12/12, Stephanie Carrara in the Town Clerk's office said.

Stoughton Town Clerk Cheryl Mooney, also a Justice of the Peace, presided over the ceremony. It was held in the Fitzpatrick Room on the first floor of the Town Hall, which was decorated for the occasion Carrara said.

Joseph's younger sister, Deana Sanford, a junior at Stoughton High, sent Stoughton Patch a photo of the couple at Town Hall.

She said her brother grew up in Stoughton and moved to Utah three years ago where he met Nicholas. Joseph and Nicholas since moved back to Massachusetts and are currently living in Stoughton.

Carrara said the Town Clerk's Office gave the couple a "First Christmas 2012" ornament for their Christmas Tree.

Normally it's not something the Town's Clerk Office would do, Carrara said, but they wanted to commemorate the special occasion on this special date.

"We couldn't have picked a nicer couple," Carrara said. "They made us feel like we've been friends for years."

Carrara said Mooney will be officiating three weddings at Stoughton Town Hall on 12/12/12.
