Outdoor Wedding Tip: Muddy Shoes!

Planning to say “I do” in the great outdoors? I love it! GREAT choice! But before you take that stroll down the aisle, let’s talk about a crucial detail often overlooked — your shoes. No no, not picking the perfect pair – we know you have that covered. We’re talking about keeping them clean!

Why it Matters

Outdoor weddings are a dream, but Mother Nature can throw in a surprise or two, like mud. Even a little dew or damp in the morning of your big day can make a squishy, muddy mess of things. If you’re okay with a little dirt on your shoes, embrace it! However, if you’d rather keep your kicks pristine, here’s a pro-tip:

Change It Up or Clean It Up

Consider bringing a change of shoes to the reception. Especially if you have an outfit change into something thats a little shorter, and that will show off your shoes more. This way, you can dance the night away without worrying about muddy streaked shoes in all your photos. You might also want to consider a more comfortable pair especially if you plan on grooving all night! Alternatively, if you really don’t want to buy another pair of shoes, then choose some made from materials that are easy to clean before the reception kicks off. A quick wipe or brush, and you’re good to go!

Afterthought? Maybe. Worth it? Always! 

Dirty shoes may seem like a small detail, but thinking ahead can save you stress on your big day. Plus, having a backup pair or easily cleanable shoes ensures you stay comfortable and stylish throughout the celebration.

So, to all the outdoor wedding girlies, put some thought into those shoes, and you’ll be stepping into marital bliss with confidence, come rain or shine!

“Gabriella was absolutely amazing!!! Words cannot even describe how perfect she was, but I’ll try my best. Right from the beginning, I knew she was the one. She was so caring, calming, organized, and just a genuinely happy person. She made me feel even more excited for my wedding. She was so helpful throughout the entire process right down to the big day. AND THE PICTURES - OH MY GOD. They are absolutely breathtaking and she definitely tells the story of your day in the most perfect way. She captures every precious moment while having a smile on her face the whole time she’s with you. I can’t say enough amazing things about her. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to have the BEST photographer for any occasion. We had such an amazing experience with Gabriella and we can’t thank her enough!”

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and we could not have asked for anyone better to capture our proposal! I had intentions of interviewing multiple photographers, but after seeing her work and talking to her over the phone, I immediately booked with her. Her passion for photography is so evident. She goes above and beyond to make your shoot about YOU. She does a great job of taking control and guiding you with poses that you will love, and her candid shots are unbelievable. She had a smile on her face the entire time and we felt like a close friend was there doing this for us. Would recommend her 100 times out of 100!

Gabriella was absolutely amazing. She made the photography session so easy and effortless. Her personality is so warm and inviting, she made us feel so so comfortable during these pictures. Gabriella went above and beyond for us and I’m so grateful my significant other found her as a photographer. I would highly recommend!

Gabriella is not only an amazing photographer, but she is an amazing person! She was incredible to work with and made everything from our engagement photos to our wedding day extremely easy. She really understands your vibe and does everything she can to help make that come true! My husband is extremely camera shy, but he was so comfortable with her and the photos were amazing!

Gabriella is the BEST photographer and needless to say she went above and beyond our expectations! She was hired by my fiancé for our surprise proposal and she did a phenomenal job at capturing every single detail of it. She made our lives easy by understanding us, our personality, the way we wanted to be captured and she did just that! From showing us every beautiful inch of Longwood gardens to telling us about different poses to capturing the beauty and essence of nature! She made my dream come true with these beautiful pictures. We spent 2 hrs with her and there was sign of rush of ending the session and it was more like whatever we felt in the moment which is what I truly enjoyed. She sent us our sneak peak pictures the day off just several hours later and needless to say not only did our jaws dropped but every single person who viewed those pics while asking who the photographer was! We proudly share her information with every member of our family and friends because she truly deserves the best❤️ Thank you Gabriella for capturing the most beautiful and intimate moments of ours and We can’t wait to work with you again!

Gabriella captured our special moments perfectly! She photographed our proposal, Holud night before the wedding, and wedding day. She was very easy to work with and always communicative and responsive. She was able to handle a 300 person wedding with ease and always got the shot. I've only seen the sneak peek from our wedding weekend but I am already in love with the pictures. She truly captured the joy and happiness of the weekend through her photos, which I will treasure forever. She is also just a genuinely kind person, which makes working with her even better :) Highly recommend.
