The Wedding Rescue Team began as a mere thought by our good friend and partner John Salkowsky of Silverfox Studio’s, after Hurricane Sandy hit John had a simple goal: to provide a wedding package for ONE couple who was affected by Hurricane Sandy to help ease the financial and emotional stress of planning a wedding.
Interviews Before the Reveal
When John approached Jim Powers, founder and President of All Star Limousines, it was a no-brainer, Jim knew with certainty that he would be part of this amazing team, not only to give back to the community, but because Jim understood that planning a wedding is stressful, and frankly after the devastation of Hurricane Sandy he couldn’t think of anything more stressful than trying to rebuild a life and planning a wedding.
What grew from this amazing thought is nothing less than remarkable, out of the generosity of the Wedding Recuse Team members, a tight knit community of wedding professionals they were able to deliver not ONE but THREE dream weddings to couples that lost everything in Hurricane Sandy. The combined total of all the Wedding Rescue Team Wedding packages exceeded $48,000.00!!
Waiting For The Reveal
The actual day of the Wedding Rescue Team reveal was magical, being part of this team that brought love, happiness and good fortune to three very deserving couples is something that doesn't happen every day, and it was a true honor to be part of something so big.
Wedding Package Presentation
The three couples that were awarded the Wedding Rescue Team Wedding Packages are truly amazing, each so loving, extremely gracious, and seriously an inspiration to us all - after everything they went through with all the adversities they faced, they came back fighting! For All Star Limousine, it was a pleasure to be able to meet these couples face-to-face, to connect and bond with them.
The Wedding Rescue Team is an incredible team of wedding professionals some that All Star Limousine has worked with for well over thirty years, and others that we had the pleasure of being introduced to for the first time last week. As team members we hope we can continue our efforts, bring happiness and more wedding to couples that are as deserving, and as wedding professionals we hope to continue to build our strong network to work together in the future.
