"I have to give credit to my best friend Layla- she knew I was looking for floral inspired shoes - I loved the movie the Secret Garden growing up and it inspired my dress and I wanted shoes to meet that vibe. So she kept looking online and she came across Harriet Wilde shoes on Pinterest, when she sent me the picture I just wanted to cry because it was everything I was looking for. I immediately went on the website and fell in love with the Dahlia style. I emailed the company right away because I was not sure of my size or what the style looked like. It was just such a easy communicating with the team and they even sent me a sample of the leather for the shoe. I soon found out there was going to be a NY trunk show and my heart just sang because I knew this was fate and made my appointment. My appointment was a dream come true, Ruth the designer, is the kindest person I have ever met and she took such care with me to go over each shoe and to try them on to see how I liked them. I ultimately went with the Dahlia style because it matched my dress exactly and just fit the whole Secret Garden look I was chasing after. This was the best experience I have ever had in my life - I just never felt so special. The shoes are beyond stunning and the fact that I was able to engrave the bottoms as well- it was just the icing on the cake. I could not ask for anything more and I never thought I’d have the opportunity to wear such gorgeous shoes and have an equally amazing experience with the designer herself! The company as a whole is amazing and the level of service is superior to anything I have received. The communication with the team from start to finish - just the best and it meant a lot to me. I will truly cherish this experience for the rest of my life - Ruth truly made me feel like the most beautiful bride and helped me create such a wonderful memory of this experience. I am so thankful to the company and look forward to buying more shoes !! I am honored that I got to wear the shoes on my wedding day - it just made everything that much more perfect!"
