I think you might consider a lighter or brighter colored shoe.  A black dress and black shoe is a little dark for an afternoon wedding.  – But 4pm isn’t exactly early in the day – it will be a dinner reception, so if the black shoes are what look best to you, don’t fret about it!

As long as you aren’t related to either the bride or the groom, and don’t plan to SOB through the ceremony, a black dress should be completely appropriate.  The style seems good – I had a Saturday afternoon wedding, and if you’d worn that dress to my wedding I’d have thought you looked very nice. (As long as it isn’t too short/tight/low cut on you – though I doubt that there are any modesty issues, since you bought the dress for work.)
