Bart and Heather are college sweethearts and their wedding day was absolutely gorgeous. Don't you just love the brides ruffled shoes? The beautiful photographs are by Chi Photography of Charleston and when they asked the couple for their most valuable piece of advice, here's what they said. "Eat first! Don’t get caught up talking to everyone." For the brides "something old" she had her mother's lace on her garter and her grandmother's pearls on her bracelet and earrings. Her "something new" was her wedding dress and shoes. "Something borrowed" was her sister's ring and the "something blue" was the bottom of her shoes and her grandmother's broach on her garter.
