Hand Painted Wedding Shoes

What girl doesn’t love shoes?  Finding a wedding shoe is never an easy task and my new favorite find is hand painted wedding shoes!  The main designer of these works of art is Figgie Shoes.  These are couture hand painted shoes created just for you.  You can send the designer, Deborah, all of your wedding details like date, names, as well as hobbies and wedding colors to create a one of a kind wedding shoe! You can also choose the type of shoe like flats, wedges or heels and even choose your heel height so they are the perfect match for you and your wedding!

These shoes are a little expensive but are truly a keepsake for a lifetime!  I also love the idea of wearing them every wedding anniversary to celebrate your life together!

If these shoes are a little too expensive for you try creating your own.  Or you can find some of these creations on sites like Etsy that can be more affordable but may not have the detail of a Figgie shoe.

Glendalough Manor Real Wedding: Ross and Whitney

On October 20, 2012 Ross and Whitney were married in the beautiful gardens of Glendalough Manor surrounded by one hundred and eighty of their closest friends and family.

The bride and her bridesmaids arrived to get ready in the bridal suite at Glendalough Manor and finish getting ready before pictures.  The bridesmaids toasted to the day with champagne and mimosas.  All of the bridesmaids signed the bottom of the brides beautiful Badgley Mishka shoes for her “something blue”.

Her bridesmaids helped Whitney get in to her wedding gown.  She  chose an all lace gown with a sweetheart neckline and wore a fingertip length veil with lace around the edges.

The bride and groom chose a very soft and romantic color palette of champagne and blush pink.  The bride carried a bouquet of assorted pink and ivory ranunculus and roses made by Blueberry Springs Florist.  The bridesmaids wore champagne satin floor length gowns and carried bouquets similar to the brides.

The groomsmen wore traditional black and white tuxes champagne spray rose boutonnieres.  For an extra touch they all wore matching argyle socks!

The ceremony was held in the gardens and pomander balls were hung in coordinating flowers across the pergola for the bride and groom to stand under during the ceremony.  I love this picture of Ross’ reaction when he see’s Whitney walking down the aisle.

After the ceremony the guests were welcomed in to the Wicklow Ballroom for a night of dancing and celebration.  The bride created her own table numbers for a personal touch and was able to reuse some of the bridesmaids bouquets for centerpieces on the tables.  Whitney chose a four tiered fondant wedding cake from Cutie Pies and Cakery decorated with pink ribbon around the bottom of each layer. They also offered the sweetest cupcakes iced in pink and ivory icing to their guests.

One of A Kind Music Productions kept the party going all night long and the couple left in a vintage Pontiac convertible.

Congratulations to Ross and Whitney from everyone at Glendalough Manor.

Also a special thank you to Blackbird Photography for these amazing photographs!
