So 5 years ago I got up and got dressed for my wedding day but it was raining buckets out! I decided to wear flip flops on my wedding day. Heels are not for me, not on a day with the most important walk of my life and a lot of dancing.
Due to the extremely rainy conditions I decided to put on my sneakers… trail running shoes from EMS to be exact… in grey! I had to take the flip flops in the limo so that I could keep my feet dry.
So we take the ride in the limo and get to the church. I ask everyone where my flip flops were and we all thought someone else took it. So I walked down the aisle at church in my sneakers. It was honestly the way I wanted it, if I could have I would have left them on all day. You do not sit down much on your wedding day so really what is better.
After the ceremony when your Dad and I were alone I told your Dad and showed him my shoes he laughed. We then had your Aunt S’s husband Uncle M go to our apartment to get my flip flops so I could eventually change my shoes. There was a shoe changing ceremony in the middle of the cocktail hour and I have a great picture of it. I will add it here as soon as I have it scanned.
There are so many stories I want to tell you about our wedding but the fact that I wore these shoes is a real quick look into what kind of person I am.
