Claudea and Patrice’s wedding is the only one I saw in Melbourne (or ever, actually) in which the groom wore sneakers during the ceremony.
Inside St Patrick’s Cathedral, no less.
Mind you, it’s a limited edition collector’s Air Jordan, and it probably cost more than your average wedding shoes.
(And he received more at the gift registry.)
My daughter was probably 2 months old then, and I couldn’t help but resonate with the generosity of Claudea.
To accept and love Patrice as the sneakerhead he was.
They’re also the only couple who fed me lobster during the reception.
I shot their family portrait last weekend (happy anniversary!) and I saw the same patience and generosity towards their daughter.
Love, is also a flat circle.
