Let’s just say right off, that we LOVE shoes. Yes they function for us in a completely utilitarian fashion, but footwear is a major accessory as well and peeping out from beneath THE dress is a less seen but equally as important adornment. We let these bridal beauties steal the show in this post as our staff list their top picks from some of our recent Morais Weddings here in Bealton VA. From unconventional to iconic we’ll even run through some location specific practicalities of a few of our choices.
The mixed metallic wave hit us as a wildly popular choice this year in the wedding industry and shoes were no exception. Check these sexy little things Aimee wore. Photo courtesy of Sam Hurd Photography . We are digging the bronze and silver combo!
Moving on through the metallics is this fun duo that Sarah rocked for her summer wedding. She brought the glam with these opened toed, cross strapped heels and continued the party with the stylish bridal sandals. Photo courtesy of Sarah Houston Photography. Here is a perfect “location specific” choice; these sandals were great for frolicking through the grape vines and around the vineyards ground searching for those picture perfect spots not to mention the dancing! You will be on your feet a lot on your wedding day- Be prepared.
Vibrant accent colors are oh-so-cute to she popping from beneath the dress. Like these “something blue” peep toed pumps Aleksandra wore. Photo courtesy of Wolfcrest Photography . Another fun set were Diane’s fuchsia d’Orsay peep toed pumps. What a great way to pull in the accent colors ladies! Photo Courtesy of Ellen Meredith Photography.
Moving on we come to the classics. Leading in with these sophisticated and iconic Kate Spade sling back heels worn by the lovely Candace at her May Wedding. Thank you Stephanie Messick Photography for the photo.
Speaking of bows… Classic with a side of bling were these jeweled bowed ladies Ireyon brought to her party. Photo Courtesy of Darling Photographers out of Chantilly Virginia.
Continuing with the classics, we couldn’t go wrong with Christine’s simple, nude, pointed toed shoes. Photo thanks to Rachel May Photography. We love the accessory setup here too.
To some, comfort is paramount. What better way to be functioning at max capacity as well as letting personality shine. Check out these “bust a move” shoes that Brittany boogied in. Photo Courtesy of Terri Baskin Photography.
And finally, we leave you with a few of our favorite bridal shoes that bring the “wow”. We were Goo-Goo Ga-Ga over Carmen’s blinged out pumps with jewels wrapped down the heels. Photo by Andsam Photography. Selena was glammed out for her big day with these fabulous crystal encrusted heels with bow ankle straps. Can we just say “Foxy”. Thanks to Kap2ure Photography of Baltimore, MD for this shot.
These opened toed, ankle strapped beauts Jen wore, were all “business in the front, party in the back”. The talented Alison Leigh Photography out of Philadelphia, PA brought us these gorgeous images to the table. To see more from this Gatsby themed wedding, cruise on over to the Borrowed and Blue Post.
We definitely had a blast finding these favorites from our past weddings to share. Although barely seen, wedding shoes DO have a big impact and we love seeing the diversity of footwear that walks through our doors.
