These heart-heeled shoes let your show your love from head to toe

I wore heart-shaped shoe clips on my wedding day a few weeks back so I'm still on a bit of a heart-shaped kick. When I saw these Heart-shaped heels by Show Story, I knew they were destined to be someone's perfect love-themed wedding heels.

We went all ga-ga over their portfolio and knew it was time to connect them with you all.
