Couples find holy matrimony at Angelina Co. Courthouse

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Valentine's Day is a day that Erika and Christian Limbrick will never forget.

"It felt good," Erika said.

"We had so much support," Christian said.

The same could be said for Amber and Ray Fenley.

"We love each other very much and I love her so what better way to do it than on Valentine's Day?" Ray said.

While some people where able to find love in holy matrimony, that wasn't the case for everyone.

"Today was a wild day at the courthouse," said Judge Bob Inselmann. "I think we did three weddings, but on the other hand we did three divorces. That's not a really good thing, but they seemed happy as well."

Chelsea Freeman was hoping to get married to her boyfriend Michael McKelvey before he accepted a plea deal but it would not happen, since they did not have a marriage license long enough.

"It was a bad situation," Inselmann said. "The young man is going to the penitentiary from what I understand and I did not think it was appropriate at this time."

But Freeman says it wont change her feelings.

For the ones who did tie the knot, the day could not have come any faster.

"We've been waiting on this for a long time," Erika Limbrick said. "We've grown stronger and stronger everyday and today is just the day today."

And it also adds a new meaning to the romantic holiday.
