a beauty queen accuses him of pointing a gun at her face. >> he's holding a gun to me. >> the frantic 911 calls and the troubled star's defiant video messages. what really happened inside his home. and good morning, america. a lot to get to this wednesday morning. those coastal waters off florida on watch for a hurricane. >> take a look at these new images coming from colorado. major flash flood, heavy thunderstorms moving through the area and ginger tracking all the latest coming up. >> ginger and her baby tracking all the latest weather. the race for the white house. that surprise from donald trump announcing overnight he'll meet with mexico's president today then that big speech on immigration tonight in arizona. abc's tom llamas here with all the latest. good morning. >> good morning to you guys. mexico's president invited both presidential candidates reaching out to them to meet with him in
7:02 am
mexico and donald trump said, i'm in. the trip coming on the same day he is set to deliver a major address on immigration. overnight, donald trump announcing his plan to cross the border tweeting "i have accepted the invitation of president nieto of mexico and look very much forward to meeting him tomorrow." thattal live branch coming after more than a year of trump railing against undocumented immigrants. >> they're bringing drugs. they're bringing crime. they're rapists. >> reporter: and his continued promise to build a wall on the southern border and make mexico pay for it. that caused the country's former president, vicente fox, to say this. >> i'm not going to pay for that [ bleep ] wall. he should pay for it. he's got the money. >> reporter: today's meeting set to take place hours before trump's major immigration speech where the candidate plans to clear up what critics call a flip-flop when it comes to
7:03 am
deporting 11 million undocumented immigrants. >> we are also going to secure our border and stop the drugs from pouring in and destroying our country. >> reporter: and while parts of his message have been consistent. >> there's going to be a big wall. it's going to be a real wall. it's going to be as beautiful as a wall can be. >> reporter: he no longer talks about a deportation force. during the primaries he was clear about what he wanted to do with all undocumented immigrants. >> if you're illegal, you got to go back. you have people that have been here a long time but they got to go back. >> reporter: overnight donald trump jr. saying his dad wasn't waffling. >> he wasn't softening on anything. what he did and what he's done all along he's speaking with the people. >> reporter: now as we mentioned hillary clinton was also invited to visit mexico. she says she's looking forward to meeting with mexico's president but her campaign put
7:04 am
out this statement about trump's trip, saying what ultimately matters is what donald trump says to voters in arizona, not mexico. and whether he remains committed to the splitting up of families and deportation of millions. >> yeah, tom, they've hit on the key question for the speech tonight in arizona. trump was a bit inconsistent last week talking about the deportation and there is still a tussle inside his camp about what he's going to say. >> reporter: i spoke to a senior aide. here's what we know, he's still going call for a physical wall on the southern border and call for an e-verify system with employers and roll back anything regarding executive action. when i asked about the undocumented immigrants they're leaving that up to mr. trump. they want people to tune in to the speech. >> let's talk about it with matthew dowd. donald trump, full of surprises. this trip to mexico. i think this is the definition of high risk, high reward. >> absolutely. i remember my own trips across the border they have all been high risk high reward when you see it.
7:05 am
it is a smart move. if successful and comes out of it i don't think he'll have the president put the wall on layaway when he leaves there but if he's successful he comes across and voters say, even though he says all this stuff and he's erratic, he can be a leader. >> if he's well received. >> good photo-op. >> the risk what does the mexican president say? >> that's going to be a huge question. >> meantime, a new poll out this morning showing some surprising slump for hillary clinton. her unfavorable numbers, let's show it, 59% basically on a par now with donald trump. >> these two candidates, i mean, her numbers have gone back to where they were before the convention. right back. these are the two most disliked candidates we've ever seen. you have to drive across the country. you have a twice between a 25-year-oldsmobile with no air-conditioning and only goes 30 miles an hour or private plane whose pilot may be erratic and landing gear may not work
7:06 am
and that's the choice the voters have. >> there were a couple of elections. primary elections. john mccain, marco rubio, both in the senate, both have been outspoken about their differences with donald trump, not saying -- even though they still say they'll support him. both beat back challengers. >> trump mini-mes. i think john mccain's was way closer. marco rubio won in a very big landslide but both have contested races in a general election that they both could lose in the course of this because of these primary fights. >> interesting to see how they play off. matt dowd, thanks very much. all right, george, thanks so much. now to that major tropical threat the waters off florida facing a tropical storm warning as that depression in the atlantic threatens the gulf coast and hawaii now facing two hurricanes. ginger has her hands full not only with adrian behind the wall. >> so let's get straight to it. tropical depression 9 finally becoming organized. that storm we've been following
7:07 am
and following. it should become a tropical storm later today. that's why we have a watch for the waters. tropical storm warning from north of tampa to tallahassee all the way to panama city. the timing of this is important. it is later thursday, through the morning of friday. for the landfall of this storm. so we're watching the track there take it. the impacts would be five to ten inches of rain, 15 inches plex. two to four feet of storm surge in some spots and of course tropical storm-force winds then the pacific, why we have so much going on. madeline churning, lester churning. that's why we have our neal karlinsky there on hurricane warning this morning. >> reporter: ginger, good morning. we've been getting hit with intermitt tent rain and you can see they started boarding up the buildings in hilo, hawaii, very unusual behavior for the hawaiian islands and they are expecting possibly 25-foot wave, tore reng waves, high winds and
7:08 am
flooding as a result. the timing is a little tricky. they think later today into tomorrow morning and as a result they've shut down all of the schools here today and also closed the port here in hilo, making matters worse as you say yet another hurricane lester is right on its heels. that would be unprecedented if that hits in a couple of day, two of them here in hawaii. >> i have friends on the big identify and have been evacuated from their hotel moving to a new hotel on a different island and that's why. you can see again the timing, it's late tonight through early tomorrow and that's when you'll feel the impacts. lester cams late week through the weekend so busy now and we'll be busy later. a lot more coming up. amy and george. >> i would have never guessed they hadn't been hit before by hurricanes. >> and now twice. a big held in the fight against isis. with the group's website announcing the death of its top leader, martha raddatz tracking it from washington. this man, abu mohammad al adnani was a double threat. >> he was one of the founders of
7:09 am
isis, george, a central figure in the organization who was not only a spokesman for the terrorist group but the man responsible for organizing attacks against westerners. he is tied to the deadly attacks in paris and brussels and he is the man who called out to lone wolves worldwide urging isis sympathizers to take up whatever weapons they could find, knife, rocks, vehicles against americans or western allies and kill them wherever they are. the u.s. confirms al adnani was the intended target of a precision air strike in syria and it was, as you say, the islamic state that announced his death. >> we've seen so many attacks like this against the leaders of isis and al qaeda, as well. the big question is ouch difference do they make? >> well, the u.s. had put a $5 million price tag on his head. he was the number two in the organization, how important the u.s. viewed his role so it is very significant but there will no doubt be someone who moves to take his place and we've seen in the past that men like al adnani can inspire attacks even after
7:10 am
they're long gone, george. >> okay, martha raddatz, thanks. now to that dangerous air scare. a flight taking off from texas encountering severe turbulence overnight forced to make an emergency landing in ireland. passengers rushed to the hospital and abc's david kerley has the latest from reagan national airport. good morning, david. >> reporter: good morning, amy. that jet was nearing the british isles when it hit unexpected turbulence injuring several passengers and crew members. this flight originated in houston. it was on a boeing 767. 223 people on board. it was supposed to be a direct flight to london but the flight tracking site flight aware shows several hundred miles out it sits turbulence and the pilot calls out to head to shannon airport to make an emergency landing in ireland. on the ground emergency crews were waiting. a lot of people were treated. a dozen people, nine adults and three children, amy, were taken to the hospital for treatment. >> do we have any word on the
7:11 am
conditions of those injured? >> reporter: yeah, actually they were pretty minor and 11 were released and authorities in ireland were getting them back to the airport so they could get on the plane and make that hop from shannon to heathrow and finish the flight. paul lepage is under pressure over comments many called racist, also a voice mail filled with profanity he left for one of his critics in the legislature and seemed to suggest he might resign then backtracked. abc's david wright is here with the latest. >> reporter: good morning. some mixed messages for sure. today lepage is due to meet with the democratic lawmaker he challenged to a duel. no duel expected but you never know. under fire for his racially charged rhetoric, the maine governor gave a radio interview in which he did not rule out resigning. >> i'm looking at all options. i'm not going to say that i'm not going to finish it. i'm not saying that i am going to finish it. >> reporter: then just as his critics started to celebrate he
7:12 am
dumped the twitter equivalent of cold water tweeting, to paraphrase mark twain the reports of my little demise are greatly exaggerated. the governor who is a favorite of donald trump's. >> he is a very talented guy. he's also a great person. >> reporter: -- made a series of racially charged remarks. >> black people come up the highway and they kill mainers. >> blaming people of color for their drug and crime people. >> half the time they impregnate a young white girl before they leave. >> i didn't call him a racist. >> reporter: the governor left him an expletive-laden voice mail. >> i want you to prove that i'm a racist. i have spent my life helping black people and you little [ expletive ] socialist [ expletive ]. >> reporter: and threatened him to a duel. >> i'd point it right between his eyes because he is a
7:13 am
snot-nose little runs. >> reporter: he was contrite about his remarks toward that lawmaker. today they meet and lepage is off expected to offer apologies. >> they're taking that hamilton thing way too seriously. hudson river, a commuter ferry slamming into a group of kayakers throwing some of them into the river. critically injuring two. gio benitez is on the scene with the latest. good morning, gio. >> reporter: amy, good morning to you. in the summer people love to kayak on the hudson river to watch that sunset. watch nightfall. but this time, it was a true nightmare. >> i have a severe laceration to the left arm of this male. >> reporter: investigators trying to figure out what led to the commission course between ten kayakers and a water taxi. >> everyone going to the hospital. >> reporter: after 5:45 p.m., nine kayakers and a guide headed south on new york's famous hudson river when the calm
7:14 am
turned into chaos. >> we heard screaming and noticed people flagging us down and waving. >> reporter: a ferry slamming into the kayaking group. >> got another victim here with a head injury. >> reporter: the water taxi impacted two of the kayaks and multiple people went into the water. >> reporter: you can see it right here after it hit the kayakers. rescuers rushing into the water. five kayakers hospitalized. two critically injured. this woman suffering a head injury. >> can you tell us what happened? >> reporter: the tour guide the most seriously hurt. >> we noticed that there were lacerations to his arm. i started triage on him to stabilize his neck and spine. >> reporter: the kayakers all wearing life vests as required by the kayak tour company. the captain said that sun glare prevented him from seeing the group. and this morning we're told the ferry's captain has been tested for drugs and alcohol. all of his results came back clean so right now this just appears to be a terrible accident. amy and george.
7:15 am
>> thanks so much. well now to frightening moments at a gas station in connecticut. take a look as a driver backs into one of the pumps knocking it over and then sparking a fire that quickly engulfs two vehicles, one of the cars had two children in the backseat. a woman on the other side of the pump quickly ran in and was able to pull the kids to safety just in time. they were not injured. the driver who backed into the pump apparently hit the gas pedal instead of the brake so another unfortunate accident. >> could have been so much worse. could have been a huge explosion. u.s. open. triumphant return to new york for serena williams. big win for her. t.j. holmes here with more. >> yes, you know, all eyes are always on serena but especially this time because, what, she just came off that loss, that shocking loss in rio. three weeks ago and just pulled out of a tournament last week because of a shoulder injury. she'll be 35 next month, tough first round opponent. how is she going to respond? i'd say pretty well.
7:16 am
>> nice. >> reporter: she's never lost in the first round of the u.s. open. >> serena williams wins her 80th match in arthur ashe stadium. >> reporter: no reason to start now. >> look at that. that's just a thing of beauty. >> reporter: serena williams looked every bit the number one player in the world in her opening round match at the u.s. open. >> how about that? >> reporter: delivering 12 aces that she started her quest for a record 23rd grand slam title. she's already raised the u.s. open trophy six types before. >> winning back then in 1999 was something i'll never forget. it was always dreamt of winning here on this court and every time i step out here it's just super, super special. >> reporter: but who can forget last year's disappointing u.s. open. >> she's done it. >> reporter: serena fell in a three-set heartbreaker in the semis which denied her the greatest glory in tennis, the grand slam. four major titles in a calendar year. this year she suffered a string of setbacks.
7:17 am
>> there it is. >> reporter: that shocking third round loss at the olympics and withdrawing from a tournament last week with a shoulder injury but if she wins this year in the big apple she'll add more history and more hardware to an already unbelievable career. so on the line this week at the u.s. open she could have the longest streak ever for being at number one, she could have the most wins ever matches by a woman in tennis history and 23 grand slam titles which could be the record as well. every swing is history and everybody capitalizing on this, a way to waste time at work, i'm going to show you one. they've come out now, this snapchat game now to where you can play all -- >> snapchat game. >> yes, you can play all of the grand slam finals that she's ever -- >> so you lose every time. >> you win every time. >> i thought you were playing against serena. >> no, who wants to play against serena. >> not me. >> you can play as serena. there she is at the bottom. gipp, this is old school nintendo-looking game. >> hilarious.
7:18 am
>> but you're actually playing, not recreating a match. >> so they even have all of her outfits down so, again, guys, this is old school but it can waste a lot of time at work. >> i can see. >> i can see the smile on your face. >> i'm not going to ply this thing. we got to go back to ginger. you can see the u.s. open on espn or stream live on the watch espn app. >> forgot to promote. we got so far into the game. >> i like how george is like i'm not going to play this. denver, we see this incredible video coming out from the flash flooding. up to three inches of estimated rainfall and it'll come through >> that cold front going the trap the moisture and this is what you're left with. let's get to the rainy cities now brought to you by target.

a lot are surprised. chris harrison will join us -- >> you weren't surprised, george? we begin with the latest on chris brown. the singer arrested after an hour's long standoff with los angeles police accused of assault with a deadly weapon after a woman claimed he pointed a gun at her in his home. abc's kayna whitworth spoke with her and is in los angeles with all the latest. good morning, kayna. >> reporter: amy, good morning. baylee curran tells me she originally went to the singer's house which you can see right there lit up behind me to see if she could perhaps star in his next music video but as the night went on according to her brown's behavior became more erratic and she ended up running for her life leaving from the backyard. overnight singer chris brown arrested for assault with a deadly weapon. and now the woman behind it all is speaking out. >> terrified. absolutely terrified. >> reporter: 25-year-old baylee curran telling abc news brown pulled a gun on her.
7:32 am
>> i didn't want anything to escalate more. >> reporter: curran says the hours' long standoff began when someone brought over a box of expensive diamond jewelry which she says she admired. >> i was just standing over admiring it not touching it and then one of chris' friends said, back away from the diamonds and that's when chris came in and said i'm so sick of all of you people. took the gun out like this. put it in my face and said get the "f" out. >> did you think he would pull the trigger. >> i thought he was going to shoot me. >> reporter: the los angeles police department receiving the frantic 911 call at 3:00 a.m. tuesday morning. >> two females unknown crying and asking for help. >> reporter: police surrounding the star's home trying to make contact with him while the singer took to instagram posting his claims of innocence. >> when you get the warrant or whatever you need to do you're going to walk right up in here and you're going to see nothing, you idiots. >> reporter: hours later brown
7:33 am
and several of his friends funneling out of the house and searched by police. this isn't the singer's first run-in with the law. in 2009 brown pleaded guilty to felony assault and was sentenced to five years probation, a year-long domestic violence class and six months community service for assaulting his then girlfriend superstar rihanna. brown completed that probation early last year. overnight, brown's attorney tweeting thank you to everyone for their support and well wishes. chris is out and well. the allegations against him are demonstrably false. brown was released after posting $250,000 bail. now we've also learned overnight that curran is wanted for questioning in new york in a grand larceny case. according to the new york police department she and a friend are accused of stealing a wallet from another woman. amy. >> all right. we appreciate that, kayna. joining us senior legal correspondent sunny hostin. sunny, there is a lot to weed
7:34 am
through here. how bad does this look for chris brown? >> well, it certainly looks bad, amy, because we are now seeing what seems to be a history of violent and abusive behavior starting with the 2009 assault on rihanna. he did serve many, many years of probation, approximately six years, that probation was lifted in march of 2015 just last year but only after he violated that probation for assaulting someone in a washington, d.c. hotel in 2014. and so we're seeing this over and over and over again when it comes to chris brown and that is not a good place to be in the criminal justice system. we see recidivism very, very often when it comes to violent and abusive behavior so yet now another complaint about this kind of behavior is going to be looked at very, very closely by prosecutors reviewing the case. >> speaking of seeing chris brown we saw a lot of him throughout this on these instagram rants. what do you make of those and from a legal perspective what do
7:35 am
they do to the case? >> you know, i think prosecutors are going to look at it. let's be clear. he hasn't been formally charged yet. his arraignment is going to be september 20th. i did reach out to his attorney my good friend mark geragos who says these allegations are completely false. but i think that it's very fascinating that social media is possibly going to be used as evidence in this case or at least reviewed by prosecutor, not only did chris brown the allege d defendant post it. ray jay was in the home and posted on instagram saying this was false then the alleged victim also posted on instagram indicating that this was true. and so, you know, i think we're seeing over and over again the clash between technology and social media and the law and that being used as evidence. we saw it very, very clearly in the killing of philando castile when that facebook live piece
7:36 am
just came out and everyone got to see what was happening at the same time. >> yeah, of course, everything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. sunny hostin, thanks so much. we move on to that stunning shooting in a new york suburb. it happened minutes from hillary clinton's home by a doctor that used to work for him. good morning, eva. >> reporter: a professor looking for revenge goes after his former boss. police say they think he came to a chappaqua diner with a purpose. to shoot someone. it's the upscale town known for its idyllic setting and two famous resident, a former president and a presidential hopeful. but on monday morning chappaqua, new york, became the scene of a shootout less than a mile away from the clinton family home, a popular and beloved dean at new york's mt. sinai school shot in broad daylight along with an innocent bystander. >> found two victims with gunshot wounds and also the suspect was still on the scene
7:37 am
was taken into custody without incident. >> reporter: 49-year-old hengjun chao pulling occupant a shotgun. police say opening fire on dr. dennis charney, the motive according to investigators likely revenge. charney was chao's former boss before the former assistant professor and researcher was fired for misconduct. >> today's graduates -- >> reporter: charney seen addressing graduates at a recent commencement is expected to fully recover along with the bystander and a judge signing an order of protection banning chao from contacting the dean. chao arrested and arraigned within hours of the shooting now charged with attempted murder was reportedly scene smirking as he left the courthouse. the scene of the crime just minutes from the clinton's estate. the former first family known to be frequent patrons of the deli. in a statement to abc news mt. sinai medical school confirming chao was terminated for cause calling the shooting extremely disturbing, george.

7:41 am
behavior but still seems surprising given the debate about his sentence. >> i don't think that it's not only surprising, i think it's outrage that people have about this sentence, george. i mean, the bottom line is he's only going to spend three months in a jail cell for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman behind a garbage dumpster. i think we can all agree that that sentence is way too short. is it a surprise that he's only going to serve three months out of the six months? no, because in california, basically they have this prison realignment going on so most inmates only serve half of their sentence. >> there was no discretion from the judge there on getting out early. >> no, there was discretion, the prosecutors recommended six years. he was facing 14 years but because of the judge's discretion in this case he only was sentenced to six months, thus, leading to the outrage in this case. i think there's this legal loophole in california that now
7:42 am
is going to be closed. >> right now they're going to tie to close that, i understand lawmakers in that state just passed a new measure in hopes of addressing cases just like this one. tell us about it. >> that's right. what is remarkable is that under california law, up until this time, amy, you could rape, sexually assault an unconscious person and not have a mandatory prison sentence. the judge had a lot of -- not leniency but a lot of discretion. now 66-0 vote, a bipartisan vote, california lawmakers have found it's going to be a mandatory three-year sentence for this exact behavior. sending a message to sexual assault victims everywhere that they matter and that people that sexually assault must spend three years in prison when the victim is unconscious. i say very, very wonderful for california. but this is something that we should see across the country.

>> 100%. all right, sunny, thank you so much. now to an alarming story about the newest victims of identity theft. children, this sacramento mom shocked to discover someone using her 15-year-old daughter's social security number to get a job. the second for kids to have their identity stolen. becky worley is here with more on this. so is this just something parents -- another thing parents have to worry about? >> how unusual. both of her children. >> i know, one more thing we have to think about. one report saying children are 51 types more likely to have their identity stolen than adults and the reason, children are a perfect target for this. they have a blank slate that an identity thief can use to create a new personality, a new record. and kids don't check their credit very often. not like my 8-year-old 5 is plying for a mortgage or a credit card. at least i hope they're not. >> what can parents do? >> there's obvious red flag, george. if your kid is getting bill collection notices, tax bill due and they don't have any income
7:44 am
obviously. or if they get pre-approved credit offers sent to you, but kids want to check their credit. not like it is for adults. we go to one site the government says is free online. easy peasy. you try to do that for a kid. this is what i needed. all his personal information plus three copies of his birth certificate, three copies of his social security card. three copies of my driver's license or passport. three copies of my current utility bill to prove where i live and then i have to mail that to all three separate credit -- >> six months later we will see what happens. >> a lot easier for them to steal your child's identity. >> wow. >> okay. thanks very much. we have a fascinating story now, from space actually. it he can chos the classic scene from accou"contact" with jodie r who hears aliens contacting for

the first time. >> i think we get it. >> we see it on her face right there. >> she hears a little bit. not a lot. a little bit so let's bring in mike massimino. a group of astronomers have heard this space telescope in russia picked up strong signals from 94 light-years away and a lot of them think this could be a sign of intelligent life in a distant galaxy. part of the galaxy. >> yeah, they're trying to figure out what it is but what's exciting this actually could be it, george. they're hopeful that it is but they have to investigate some more and if you're going to be contacted by aliens or if we're going to contact them someday it's probably not going to be a welcoming party showing up at the door but something more like you saw in the clip where it's a radio signal that is sent or received and then we have to figure out what it really is. >> i see you are reporting from space which is a pretty cool
7:46 am
thing. >> yes, yes. i'm floating around. >> what will scientists do now to further investigate and it sounds like you believe this actually may be the real deal. >> well, it could be. it's a strong enough signal they can't ignore it and write it off as noise. it might be noise but might not be. they'll try to see if it's anything that might be obvious like signals coming from within the earth that's being -- that's just being misinterpreted as noise or something from a satellite we put up, something made by humans or maybe kids playing around in their back yard. >> can you explain what the difference is between signal and noise? a nall is something we believe is manufactured by some kind of being. >> right. right, some sort of intelligent life. something that was in our case we have radio waves, television signals that have gone out over the years and that is something that can be interpreted that is not natural phenomenon. and so that -- that's what we're trying to determine. that's what they'll try to determine and then they have to
7:47 am
see where it is coming from. something from the earth, something in orbit around the earth that humans made or actually coming from this star which is 94 light-years away. it's a sunlight star with at least one planet around it so that's what they have to figure out. they'll keep looking because they want to get it again. if they can get another sfal from the place it gets interesting. >> communicating with us then they're smarter than us. >> almost by definition. >> let's hope so, i think whoever gets there first by definition is smarter. >> what do you guys think, sunny, becky, do you believe? >> well -- >> totally. >> i think there's area 51, to be honest. i i believe it's all. >> elon musk says there's a 98% certainty we're in an alien's video game. i don't believe. >> thanks to michael. >> we're going to have been careful whether or not we believe this. we need big evidence for this one. >> all right, michael, becky, sunny, thanks for keeping it

8:42 am
gorgeous red carpet looks fit for your big day. the traditional white wedding is going red. red carpet, that is, from crop tops to shorts and even pink gowns. these days it seems bridal fashion is following hollywood's hottest trends. a wedding today is a much different event. >> it really is. social media upped the ante. the photos you used to share are close friends and family are out there for the entire world to see. >> we caught up with keija minor from "brides" magazine to transform three red carpet trends into wedding dress ready moments. first up, the plunging neckline. a look perfected by charlize theron at this year's oscars. >> here we have a gown by reem acra. the lace makes it feel a little bit more wedding appropriate. we also have the lace in the back. we do. this is a detachable skirt which
8:43 am
is great so you can have that train moment during the ceremony but if you really want to, you know, dance during the reception you can take that off. >> next, the cape dress as seen on jennifer lopez at the golden globes. this is very old hollywood to me. >> this is a gown by pronovias. it's a modern take on the train. adds a lot of drama to the back. i love when we see it in a pared down modern fabric with a hint of embellishment. >> finally a fresh take on the princess gown, blake lively rocking this elegant confection recently at the cannes film festival. >> this is by haylew paige with the illusion, clear sleeve, the clear corset. you really have a level of sophistication that you don't necessarily think of when you think of the princess gown. >> three looks to give your fairy tale wedding a hollywood ending. they're the star of their

8:45 am
little less customized you can just get a great pair of sneakers. >> oh, my god. >> this bride is wearing sneaker wedges. >> it's funny because the dress is so sophisticated and beautiful and formal but you don't see the sneakers. >> and she's tall so she doesn't necessarily need the height. i love the laces are blue. your something blue and covered there and can wear them again and again. >> you wouldn't think there were sneakers under that dress. >> surprise. this is kind of a combination of the two. so these are just, you know, regular sneakers you can buy in a store and customize them. >> it's called bedazzling. >> you can bedazzling them and channel your inner 12-year-old. >> and hit the dance floor with no blisters. >> it just gives the bride a little secret under her dress and keeps her comfortable all day. >> mara schiavocampo, everyone is applauding you this morning. coming up next we are announcing the cma award nominees live. stay with us. katie: on crime, pat toomey's attacks on me are shameful.
