Couple follows 06-07-08 first date with 09-10-11 wedding


 
Randall and Evans

Randall and Evans

When New Jersey massage therapist Ericka Randall first met Patrick Evans, she was in a bad mood. She was turning 30, and all her friends had forgotten her birthday. She connected with Evans, now 42, on a music social networking site. He had no photo posted and she didnâ€t know much about the health care worker from Pennsylvania, but she found herself venting to him about her disappointment. To her surprise, the kind stranger she met online volunteered to make up for her disappointment and plan her a 30th birthday. "He had flowers and a 'happy 30th birthday' sign and surprised me by reserving a section of the restaurant." His thoughtful gesture won her over and on 06-07-08 – the day of the birthday party – the couple officially began dating.

The serendipitous alignment didnâ€t end there. As they were getting to know one another, the music aficionados had odd coincidences like naming their favorite songs at the exact same moment (both simultaneously blurted out the Eric Benet song, “The Last Timeâ€). A year later, Evans surprised Randall with a New Yearâ€s Eve proposal in 2009. After their 06-07-08 meeting, Randall's “yes!†was followed by wedding plans that continued their numerical streak.

“We decided on a destination wedding in Ocho Rios, Jamaica,†said Randall, 33. And the date that “lined up perfectly†was none other than 09-10-11.

The couple feels no pressure to keep the numeric magic alive, though Randall says she canâ€t resist one surprise on 09-10-11. “Iâ€m planning to send him a gift at 12:13 that day, before we get married at 3 p.m.,†she laughs. “It has to be worked in there!†
