A Sophisticated Soiree: A Metropolitan Club of San Francisco Wedding
Pat and Tony have an unusual story and one that I find enthusiastically filled with adventure, love, and above all, friendship. They began as coworkers for close to thirty years, but when a few years after Tony was widowed, he and Pat molded their longstanding friendship into a romantic one. Today, they are both retired and love to travel endlessly, with Australia and Fiji already checked off their lists and trips to Buenos Aires and Antarctica coming up. I chided Pat when she originally reached out that there was “romantic hope for me yet” as it was her first marriage, which led to a conversation about how difficult it is to give up a lifetime of independence for shared compromise. That being said, it would appear that despite the battle for compromise, these two are going to spend the rest of their lives together in grand adventures.
