Matt and Patrice have been together for all of their adult lives. They never originally intended to marry, feeling together wholly outside of convention and societal norms. Patrice's late mother, however, wanted nothing more than to see them commit their lives together in the bond of marriage and when she was diagnosed with an aggressive terminal illness, Matt and Patrice planned a wedding. Patrice's mother never saw her marry - she passed on the day of their original elopement during the year of Covid lockdowns. They made a pledge that they would celebrate surrounded by the people they love and one year later, Matt and Patrice renewed their vows in the best way they knew how - with a grand party in Lake Tahoe with a Tahoe South of North Brewing Wedding, absolutely surrounded by all their friends and family. More from their Basecamp Hotel destination wedding in South Lake Tahoe is up on my blog today.
