BRIDE Melissa McNamara still raises a smile despite being stuck in a lift.
The 32-year-old was trapped for almost an hour between the 17th and 18th floor of a hotel in Rhode Island, US.
She could see new husband Justin Rodger above her and was passed a glass of champagne by revellers below.
Melissa, freed by fire crews and lift engineers, said: “I was anxious to get to my party.”
“It was quite boring for the first 30 minutes but once the doors opened it was relief.
“I could see Justin and my family up on the 18th floor and actually speak with the fire chief face to face about what was going on.
“And I was also able to crouch down on the floor to talk with the guests at the cocktail hour on the 17th floor.
“One was able to pass me a glass of champagne to drink while in the elevator.”
Justin said: “I was shocked that an elevator got stuck going up one floor and worried about her safety.
“I initially thought that the girls would be bustling her dress for a few minutes, take some pictures and be down in 15 minutes.
“As one of the bridesmaids whispered you need to come with me Melissa is stuck in the elevator.
