I was married in the middle of Times Square on Saturday, August 18. With friends and family sitting on the Red Steps in Duffy Square, Kevin Mulcahy Jr. and I said our ‘I dos.’ It was our dream wedding, in our dream location surrounded by more love and enthusiasm than I ever could have imagined. We both always wanted to live in New York so we went all out with a New York City theme. As you might notice from the photo above, three-time Emmy nominee Colleen Zenk, best known to soap opera fans as Barbara Ryan in ‘As The World Turns,’ officiated our wedding. Colleen became an ordained Universal Life Church minister in order to participate in our special day. It meant the world to us as we’ve grown to love her dearly as a friend and to count on her advice and wisdom as we navigate our way through a hectic life in New York City.
