Notable marriages in the New York Times include LR native Will Trice

Posted By on Sun, Oct 12, 2014 at 9:29 AM

The New York Times includes news of a marriage of Little Rock interest, though it's unlikely to appear in the local newspaper.

I report it here because the Little Rock native in the couple is an old friend and also because the Arkansas Times, though not a regular source of marriage news, is happy to fill the gap that exists in Arkansas for publicity about marriage of same-sex couples.

Making the wedding page of the NY Times is a pretty big deal, by the way. Many are submitted, few are chosen.

Will Carl Trice and John Edward Pettengill were married Saturday at the Historic Barns of Nipmoose, an event space in Buskirk, N.Y. The Rev. Mark Hummell, an Episcopal priest, officiated.

Mr. Trice (left), 35, is a three-time Tony -winning theater producer whose productions include “All the Way,” “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess.” He graduated from Southern Methodist University and received a master’s degree in theater from Northwestern.

He is the son of Judy M. Trice and the late William H. Trice of Little Rock, Ark.

Mr. Pettengill, 31, is the director of product management for VAL Health, a behavioral economics firm in Stamford, Conn., that helps employers enhance company health plans. He graduated from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and received an M.B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania.

He is a son of Mary C. Pettengill and Robert C. Pettengill of Austin, Tex.
