Thursday, the groom finally figured out how to grant his bride’s wish to say “I do” beneath the transit hub’s majestic vaulted ceiling – for free.
With charmed tourists and harried commuters as their wedding party, the Trumbleys renewed their vows on the balcony over Metro-North Track 23.

Yesterday was their 10th anniversary, and he told Kristy, 33, to put on her wedding dress so they could pose for pictures at their favorite place.
