Formal from Head-to-Toe

Once the prefect wedding gown is found, the search is on for a great pair of shoes.  Brides know how important the perfect pair of shoes is in creating their overall look but often times, not much thought is given to what the groom will wear on his feet.  It’s true that men’s formal shoes can sometimes be plain but that is definitely not the case with the new David Tutera men’s formal shoe collection.

The first pattern, Celebrity, is a patent shoe with a classic double –runner across the body of the shoe.   The double-runner is over-laid with a matching matte material adding contemporary flair.  The second pattern, Icon, is the flip-side version of Celebrity where the shoe is matte-based and the double-runner is patent. Both styles are super sharp and would look great on every groom.

Have you shopped for your groom’s shoes yet?  If so, what style are you getting?

Wildfire Wedding

As I watched the season finale of Modern Family, in which Mitch and Cam needed to evacuate their wedding because of wildfires in the area, I thought how awful that would be for a couple if that really happened. Well in a case of life imitating art, this scenario did play out for a couple in Oregon recently. Michael Wolber and April Harley were faced with this very dilemma on their wedding day but before they left the scene of the ceremony, they took a few photographs. With smoke and flames raging in the background, the photos are quite dramatic, scary yet beautiful.


Those photos, and the story that goes along with them, is sure to be one for the ages but I’m not sure I would have stayed around for photos, would you? Click to view entire story and wedding photos. { Photos courtesy of Action News.}
