After many years on the front line fighting for marriage equality for members of the LGBTI community, Rahway New Jersey City Councilman Bob Bresenhan, Jr. and his partner Rolando B. Ceniza tied the knot on June 28, 2014.
Bresenhan and Ceniza were married in a garden wedding ceremony officiated by Rahway Mayor Samson Steinman, Saturday evening, June 28, 2014 at the couples Rahway, New Jersey, home.
“June 28, is a very special day for our union," Bresenhan explained. "We chose June 28, 2003, to celebrate our union in a right of marriage officiated over by a member of the clergy but unrecognized by the state of New Jersey. This day and marriage license from the state of New Jersey and the City of Rahway has been a long time coming. Roland and I were there by then Governor Jon S. Corzine’s side as he signed the Civil Union law in December 1, 2006 in Trenton."
Ceniza, a United States citizen of Philippine heritage, is a registered nurse in the cardiac catheterization field at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell. The couple makes their home with two furry children Rosie and Buster, Yorkshire terriers.
