My Custom Wedding Day Shoes

Every girl dreams about her wedding day, especially what each little unique element of the day will be. Really, if you think about it, it’s a totally custom experience, which are very rare in this life. From the beginning of one day to the end, you get to control every aspect of what people will see, do, and experience.

I took this custom idea to an entirely new level, particularly when thinking about what I was going to wear on the big day. Like many brides, I went to The Knot to explore different options for the big day. So many had come before me, and so many creative minds had pushed themselves to make incredible things to wear and buy for the big day.

I ended up going with Modern Vice wedding shoes which I was able to customize. This included going through and choosing heel height, color, general style, and adornments. I ended up choosing a nice white chain around the back because I’m that fabulous.

The great part about Modern Vice was that I got to actually visit the shoe factory and work with the designer on location in NYC. It was one of my favorite experiences of my wedding, one that I wish I could replicate for every aspect of the ensemble! I even snuck into the studio to take some glamour shots before heading home.

Planning my wedding was such a wonderful (and stressful) experience, but really my favorite part was seeking out the small touches that made the whole event unique to me.

Road Trip To Kansas & More

The Ferguson family is headed to Kansas!

It’s been a crazy week as we plan a spur of the moment trip to Kansas next Friday to visit my sister and her family. She just had a baby boy and got out of the hospital on Wednesday of last week. I figure that the family can all get together and help her out during her recovery.

I can remember the daze I was in the following weeks after giving birth. It feels almost surreal for the first few days, like you’re living in a dream.

Your emotions run wild as your body processes that you just lost 8 lbs of something living inside of you. It definitely takes some time to fully recover. Therefore, I am more than happy to drive the two hundred mile journey to see her!

This also gives my family a chance to take some time and be together.

Tyler and Randy have been off doing there own thing for the past few weeks – soccer, work, homework, etc. I’ve been trying to get my garden all prepped for winter (don’t want the vegetables to perish).

In the back of my mind, when my sisters husband invited us to come down, I was happy that it would give us all a chance to be together and “reset” our lives for a second.

Randy will still be working from the hotel room but he promised to take some time off and have with me.

Now that I think about it, what fun stuff is there to do in Kansas? Aw, shucks. Haha…
