If there is one rule of feminism, it is this: Never underestimate the power of a woman in a red heel.
Be on the double look-out if this red shoed woman is a beautiful bride, surrounded by her sorority friends.
It was last January when I first met Heather and Jesse and their fur babies, Ed and Heiress. We stomped and tromped around Enger Tower in Duluth, Minnesota, for a couple of hours, letting them smile and kiss and cuddled in the cold (which made for an amazing engagement session). We all looked out in wonder at the harbor from the little pavilion that would be the site of their fall wedding, just a little over ten months away on that winter day.
As Minnesota seasons do so well, these ten months sped by; the ice and snow melted, giving way to the spring that became summer, and before anyone could say “wedding day,” October 7th was here in her beautiful, autumnal glory.
It has been said before, and it will be said again: It was the perfect day for a Duluth wedding, The hillside was showing its oranges and yellows, while grey-suited Jesse waited on the rocks for his bride, who headed out to him in the cutest ruby heels, escorted by her father, Tony (who had perfectly given his wife the necklace Heather wore–the one with impeccably matched her band, years before this day). There in the shadow of the historic tower, this couple became husband and wife.
As the ceremony transitioned into the reception and moved from Enger tower to the Great Lakes Ballroom of the Holiday Inn, friends and family followed along, celebrating the new Mr. and Mrs.–including a special honor granted by Heather’s Alpha Sigma Tau sisters, complete with a serenade of the new couple and a group dance of all sisters around their significant others. Not a bad way for these two to enter the next chapter of their lives, having something they can turn to, somebody they can kiss, as exclaimed in the catchy Coldplay song to which they danced their first dance.
See what they found for yourselves…
