The reception will be at Hudson Terrace, which has a view of the Hudson River and the USS Intrepid, according to the “Today” show's website. The location was announced this morning. Hudson Terrace was one of three possible venues including Gotham Hall and the Central Park Zoo.

The winning rings were announced last week. Viewers selected the Neil Lane set, designed by a jeweler based in Los Angeles.

With his deployment over, Gebhardt is traveling from Afghanistan to Elmendorf Air Force Base in Alaska today. McMillin said that his plans are not set for sure, but he will probably travel straight from Alaska to New York for the Sept. 30 wedding.
