Recently we took a friend over to see Portofino, and were well rewarded for the effort when we came upon a young bride and groom having a photo-shoot at Chiesa San Giorgio, above the port.
Aren’t they adorable? That’s Castello Brown in the background. And no, we have no idea who this happy couple is. At first we just thought, ‘aw shucks, how sweet…’ Then we got a closer look at the groom and noticed his unusual footwear:
Hey! Those are blue high tops! What an improvement over tight shiny leather when you have to be on your feet and feeling your best for the afternoon and evening. But best of all was when we realized that the bride went to the same shoemaker:
I don’t know which I like better, the blue or the yellow. I think maybe the yellow. The bigger question, though, is this: is this the new Wedding Style for the year ahead? Will all brides and grooms be cantering down the aisle in athletic footwear? Not a bad idea, now that I think of it, very handy when they try to escape from all those people who are throwing things at them after the ceremony. And oh! how comfortable!
