Shoes for the journey.
Not too tight, not too loose. The fit has to be perfect.
Some shoes will be outgrown quickly, others may last a lifetime.
Boots can get you through the muck and mire, but
they can also take you down the isle in your pretty new dress
as you carry your own flowers.
Sandals can get you down the same isle toward the one you love,
and spare your feet from the heat of the day, and they can
carry you to the dance floor where you celebrate for hours.
But, oh, the getting there.
The hours of preparation. The fittings. The decisions.
The decorating. Working with all those vendors.
Making it all come together, along with a team of friends.
I wore simple, comfortable black flats, and carried my camera around
for hours on end, documenting this beautiful day.
What. An. Honor.
I think I just may have stepped into the shoes with the perfect fit…for me.
