Still glowing from his first championship, LeBron was heading to the Ritz Carlton Coconut Grove just before bride, Jamie Kolnick, was about to tie the knot with her soon-to-be husband Shaun. LeBron was at the Ritz to meet with a reporter from Sports Illustrated. Then came a moment that very few, if any, can claim; Lebron would take a pre-wedding photo with the newlyweds. Wow, talk about a story for your grandkids! Better yet, LeBron continues to prove the naysayers wrong, as he improves his once floundering image.
According to the Huffington Post:
It would be tough to upstage a bride as pretty as Jamie Kolnick, but the glowing Heat fan met her match Saturday in Miami’s freshly crowned narrative-slayer, LeBron James.
The NBA champion of all of two days happened to be meeting a Sports Illustrated reporter at the Ritz Carlton Coconut Grove just before Kolnick tied the knot on the property, and the Miami native and new husband Shaun were able to snag the pre-wedding snap of a lifetime — never mind that eager onlookers uploaded cell phone photos of the bride to Facebook before she’d even walked down the aisle.
“I was like, ‘Who cares? It’s a photo with LeBron!’ It was really unexpected and exciting,” said Kolnick. “Shaun was like, ‘That’s enough! We don’t need to get married anymore.’” [...]
“It was funny, because the bride’s brother was just dying, he was beside himself with excitement,” [wedding planner Jen] Schwartz said, laughing. “And at some point, she looked at him and said, ‘Okay, you’re more excited that LeBron James is here than you are for my wedding!’”
I think I speak on the behalf of all dudes across America when I say we’d all feel more excited that LeBron James was at our sister’s wedding, opposed to our sister actually getting married on her most important day. Unfortunately for the bride, the talk of the ceremony was probably about LeBron James the rest of the day.
