Talk about true love under adverse conditions. Anna and Richard (not their real names) planned a lavish Catholic church with an equally lavish reception after in one of the city’s oldest and grandest restaurants. Everything went as planned except for one thing—a brewing storm. Come wedding day and helpless against the onslaught of a direct typhoon hit, Anna and Richard saw their grand wedding fell apart detail by detail. The cake didn’t make it. The restaurant got flooded. Only a handful of the guests showed up. The limo was caught in the horrendous traffic. The only thing the couple had was the gown and tuxedo they’re wearing… and the Kirk Kara Richard had in his pocket. In the middle of this chaos, stuck in traffic and all formalities swept away by the storm, Richard pulled out the ring and professed to Anna his vow, storm or no storm.
Kirk Kara is available at Shreve & Co. on Post Street, San Francisco.
