Do you love your honey so much you'd marry every single day of the year? A pair of young lovebirds, stressed out by the planning of their first wedding day, decided to repeat their nuptials every day thereafter.

Rachael Kay Albers, who says she hails from Elmhurst and Lombard, and her husband Roberto Hess, have exchanged vows more than six dozen times now.

Apparently, every day is better than the first in what they're calling The One Year Wedding.

"I got a little bridezilla-y and I started having all these fairytale fantasies about what this wedding was supposed to mean," Albers told HuffPost Live's Caitlyn Becker. "This one day, it had to mean everything and it had to change our whole relationship and I had to feel something specific about him on that day."

Albers says it's "practicing love as a daily thing."

Their love for matrimony, however, has inspired some snark and criticism. The couple were featured on HuffPost Live and WGN News.

"By the look of the comments, people hate us more than Fred Phelps right now. I guess we're sensationally annoying," Albers tweeted Friday.
