[Wedding] Sally & Terence – VIP Country Club in Westchester, NY

I’ve heard of wedding celebrations spanning 2-3 days, but have you ever heard of a celebration going on for 25 hours straight? I haven’t, until now! Though I was only around to witness (and capture) about 17 hours of Sally and Terence’s special day at the VIP Country Club in Westchester, I received a very sweet phone call from them a few days later to hear about their after party (and the after-after party), as well as their sincere thanks for enduring such an extended wedding celebration. In truth, we loved every single minute of working with these two, it hardly ever felt like “work” at all. Not to mention, these were one of the craziest and funniest folks we’ve EVER had the pleasure of working with. There was literally something that would induce belly-aching laughter at every turn. Their day started in Queens, at Sally’s family salon.
