I’ve known Stephanie for sixteen years. So when she asked me to be a part of her bridal party, the only word that sprang to mind was “yes!”
We’d seen each other through countless life stages and painful periods of growth. And I was more than happy to assist her in starting the latest chapter with her wife-to-be, Christine.
Luckily for me, Bensalem, Pennsylvania, found itself between two cities I could squeeze into my visit northeast. For the brevity, I’ll break this installment into three pieces: my New York City travel, my visit to Philadelphia, and of course, the wedding.
My reasons for dropping into New York were twofold, however. My uncle works and lives in the city and a visit was long overdue. He’s been a favorite of my extended family because of our shared interests in the arts. Having worked on Broadway building sets for the whole of his adult life, Uncle Bob has always fostered and nurtured my love of arts and music.
