T-strap shoes that fit your wedding to a T

Ugh, I'm sorry for the pun in the title. I can't help myself sometimes! Let's ignore my terrible puns and talk about t-strap shoes instead. This vintage-ish style is a nod to the shoes of the 1920s and 1930s, although these modern replicas definitely have a sass all their own. T-straps have the advantage of feeling a bit more stable on your foot than an open shoe — and if you're looking for stability, I made a point to include some adorable t-strap flats in this round up, too.


A zoo wedding with handmade international details

Jennifer and Abdoulaye are truly an international couple: she hails from the States and he's from Guinea, and they met while working in Mali. A coup d'état in the country led to Jennifer moving back home, and their relationship blossomed thanks to Skype and long-distance phone calls. Once reunited in the US they quickly eloped, and hosted a wedding a few months later at the Virginia Zoo.


A vintage-inspired California farm wedding with jasmine, goats, and a coral dress

Abra and Jeff got hitched at Roshambo Farms, aka sun-drenched barnyard heaven — complete with chickens, turkeys, and goats. In the months leading up to the wedding, the bride's mother amassed a collection of vintage silk and cotton lace, and Abra's childhood friend used the pieces to fashion her dusty coral wedding gown. Guests also gifted the couple handwritten blessings (to be opened on the denoted anniversary).
