I was bowled over when I first set eyes on this most original wedding cake topper and, then, I heard who made it. It was Jeremy’s Aunt, Joyce Fritz-Ritz, (who, by the way, has a shop on Etsy called Souly Joyce). At about the same time, it was revealed to me that The Wizard of Oz is Christopher’s favorite film, hence the yellow brick road underneath the red Chucks — the red Chucks being an homage to ruby slippers!
Christopher and Jeremy, who were married on this day, were also going to wear red Chucks (see photo, bottom right) until they were gifted two pairs of stylish Cole Haan shoes.
It was serendipity that, while taking the grooms’ portraits, I noticed the brick sidewalk in front of the event space, Ramscale. It was awash in that luscious golden hue from the setting sun. I had them pose as if they were about to walk down the Yellow Brick Road (see photo, bottom left).
