Tying the Knot: The Shoes

I had spent countless hours looking for the perfect white shoes for our wedding day. Website after website and store after store I found nothing that met my (literally) high standards for a non-pointy toe pretty white pump with at least a 3 inch heel. Little by little, a new "trend" started in the wedding industry, colored shoes for the bride. I was in love with the idea almost instantly. And then, one day...all of a sudden, I found them.




Friends, people l-o-v-e-d the plum shoes. The best compliment I received was from one of my Mom's friends when we were at the reception, "Jessica, when you lifted up your dress to walk down the steps at the church to go light the unity candle...I saw those shoes and I thought to myself, "You go girl!" Love your shoes."
By the way, this shot is another favorite.


A little glimpse at the the socks we got for the men.


previously in the series "tying the knot": we did it, a preview, our honeymoon, our candy bar, lifesaver, getting ready, our first look, the bride and groom, bouquets and boutonnieres

colored shoes are by far my favorite wedding trend. I felt the same way about my shoes. Searched around until one day I saw them and knew they were the ones - kind of like my husband I guess :)

i have been reading your blog for a few months now and love it....the wedding pics and stories are great! my sister married 2 years ago and is an athlete and has always worn Jordan sneakers. So her wedding colors were black and red....she found white Jordans trimmed in red and wore them with her dress. The entire church burst out laughing when she lifted her dress. It's so unique and so fun! Love the plum shoes!
