I loved working with Caroline (a sweet friend from high school) on these Vintage Vineyard Wedding Toms! She told me that she and her fiance were getting married at a beautiful vineyard and she had ordered the natural color Toms. When I started to come up with the design, I kept thinking how cool these would be with a vintage "love letter" feel and I built everything around that! I'm so thankful that Caroline offered to share her awesome story today... enjoy!
What's the story behind your Toms?
I'm getting married in two weeks and I wanted a pair of toms to wear with my wedding dress that memorialized the day so that I can wear them to remember!
What's your favorite thing about your Toms?
It's hard to pick one favorite thing! I love the scriptures that are on them. I've always had a strong conviction to honor my husband all the days of my life, whether I knew who he was or not. So I love that scripture on the shoes. I love that it has some little pieces of Chad with the crossfit rings and fireman logo. I guess one of my favorite parts is the word Hope on the back. I named my dog Hope because I was hoping that she would teach me how to be loved unconditionally. I always had problems accepting love before her. Chad agreed to let her come to the wedding and a few weeks later, but a few weeks after he agreed Hope passed away. A part of me thinks she knew I had learned what she was here to teach me! I don't think I would have ever been able to relax and let Chad love me, had Hope not taught me how to do that. I wanted the reminder of her with me as I get married.
How will you style your Toms?
Well I'm wearing my wedding dress with them! After that, I'll probably wear them with about everything because I love them so much! Shorts, dresses, jeans, skirts... everything goes with Toms!
