"When Lisa and I moved to Society Hill in 1986, we immediately fell in love with the Bride as a quirky, unstuffy venue for really high class performance in various arts that we are both immensely attracted to – world music, jazz, dance, performance art. Despite appearances (!), we are unorthodox folks, and the Bride appealed!  I was delighted to be asked to join the board a few years ago and play my part to help the Bride survive and thrive. We are especially happy to have helped launch the Bride’s new record label with the intro album, Skins and Songs." - David U'Prichard
