RIDGEWOOD, N.J. – The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood was recently transformed into a special wedding venue for one patient and his partner.
“Mark DeBenedectis expressed to Cheel 4 Neuro Charge Nurse Michelle Bower, RN, his wish to marry his partner, Greg, before he was scheduled to have major surgery,” Valley Health System shared in a Facebook post.
With DeBenedictis’ surgery just two days away, staff and volunteers transformed the hospital’s terrace into a wedding venue for the Emerson couple.
Staff and volunteers thought of and coordinated all the details -- including decorations, flowers, a harpist, a photographer and a chaplain to officiate.
“The day was complete with family and friends present to witness the joyous occasion,” the post states.
