Long Islanders Say "I Do" Atop the Empire State Building IN THE NEWS

Jump to Comments

Valentine’s Day is the only day of the year where weddings can take place atop the Empire State Building.  And yesterday fourteen couples — one from Lindenhurst, Long Island — got married there.  According to CBS, “The second couple to walk down the aisle were Sarah Marie Carpino and George Callahan, two firefighters from Lindenhurst, N.Y., who met on the job. Among those attending their ceremony was their ‘miracle baby,” 17-month-old son, Jack, dressed in a little dark suit similar to his father’s. Callahan held his son during the ceremony.  Doctors had told the couple that because Callahan had been diagnosed with testicular cancer they had one in a million chance of having children, said Carpino, wearing a white strapless gown.”
