PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — One bride says she almost missed her wedding reception after getting stuck in an elevator in Rhode Island.

Melissa Rodger says she was heading to the 18th floor of the Providence Biltmore hotel Saturday when the elevator stopped within four feet of its destination. She says a bridesmaid alerted her husband shortly afterward that a “situation” was going on.
