red satin shoes

Martha Stewart Weddings - Cheree Berry

Let it be known that I have a thing for shoes, and there is nothing like an impending wedding to make me want to disregard any kind of budget for attire. I spotted these red shoes in this month's issue of Martha Stewart Weddings in a feature about stationary designer Cheree Berry's wedding. The shoes are called Pomposo and are made by Stuart Weitzman. They cost $325 and come in while, black, or ruby satin. While I really want them, I am taking it as a sign that they are sold out in my size.

the beginning

“I tell those old stories, but they’re not what I want to tell. I only know how I want peple to feel when I tell them.”
- John Steinbeck, “The Leader of the People”

I wrote down the above line when I read “The Leader of the People” years ago in high school. Since then, I often find myself coming back to it, especially when I think about the wedding. I know how I want to feel, how I want our guests to feel – loved, happy, joyous. The hard part is translating a feeling or a mood into the details that accompany planning a wedding – and that is what I hope to discover with you.
