The Second Happiest Day of My Life

A Waldorf Story by Rick Ferenci
2015
The Waldorf Astoria will always play a starring role in the second happiest day of my life. The happiest day of my life was meeting my future husband Carlos at Badlands, a dance club in Washington, D.C. on October 16, 1993. After waiting to legally marry we set the date for exactly 22 years later on October 16, 2015. We opted for Tiffany rings, a small Central Park ceremony overlooking the Bethesda Fountain, and of course rooms at the Waldorf. Memories of the Waldorf and the happiness that radiated from the city that day will stay with me until my dying day.
