"Red lips and red shoes, I knew I wanted to wear both for my wedding day. After I found my dress, I began my search for the perfect shoe. Red, it turns out, is a difficult color to search for, I was finding more purple, brown or fire engine red, which just didn't feel like the look I was going for. I got served the Hetty Mid Bordos on Pinterest and immediately fell in love. The perfect height for walking and dancing and the perfect classy color to match my red lips. Due to the pandemic, we decided to postpone our large wedding in California and have a small ceremony a mile away from our apartment at the Washington, DC Smithsonian Castle. Our intimate wedding allowed me to forget about the stress involved in wedding planning and take-in the moment. I bought a dress online that worked well with the shoes (most dresses do), did my own hair and makeup and rushed so fast to marry Michael that I forgot my bouquet, which actually didn't bother me at all. The day was perfect but we're still excited to celebrate with family and friends again next year, and I'm excited to wear my favorite shoes again, which everyone tells me are "".
