I love to share DC wedding details, especially this photo of shoes and George Washington! Nothing like mixing a little historical context into your wedding day, even if it is tongue in cheek. I've become a bit of a history junkie from living in this area, and I love Mount Vernon, Photographs of DC wedding details are a key component of the whole story of a wedding day!
Every bride carefully chooses her accessories, after first choosing her wedding dress! Once the wedding dress has been chosen, the veil and shoes are typically next.
With shoes, I always recommend that clients choose a comfortable option, but for some brides, wearing chic, fashionable shoes is a priority over comfort. I once had a wedding client who wanted to purchase the Jimmy Choo rhinestone studded high heels, but they were significantly out of her budget. So, in determined fashion, she did some research. She then purchased the crystals, the glue used by the manufacturer, as well as a pair of similar plain white Jimmy Choos... and she got to work! Gluing and gluing thousands of different sized crystals in the same pattern as the shoes she'd wanted!
The end result was a beautiful pair of shoes that now had quite a bit of sentimental value to the bride!
Once the veils and shoes are chosen, jewelry is next! But I'll talk about that in another post.
