I am grateful for couples that somehow reflect who I am like Iris and Russel.

When I met Russel months before the wedding, he specifically said he didn’t want something too formal. He wanted something that was so them. As you can see in the photos below, they love rubber shoes (I’m not sure if this is the right word). Iris wore one with her gown. It was refreshing to see her move around with so much comfort and ease. The entourage had a mix of something formal and rugged.

Like them, I can’t imagine wearing heels. In fact, I don’t own a single pair of formal high heeled shoes. Keds and ballet flats are my staple. No wedge shoes and high heels. I did try wearing one. I tried fitting in and ended up on the ground with a broken camera lens and a sprained ankle. Since then, I stopped trying.
