I knew wedding planning was getting serious when the Department of Homeland Security flagged me as an illegal importer. I’d ordered 150 pairs of fold-up ballet flats from Hong Kong as our winter wedding’s answer to dance floor flip-flops. They were extras on a wholesale order from Elee Shoes, so I was able to get a variety of sizes and colors at an amazing price. I thought I was a planning genius. That is, until I received notice that the U.S. government had embargoed the shoes. They thought I was planning to sell them. You can imagine their surprise when I explained they were for our wedding!
The ballet flats kept our guests boogying well past midnight. They were one of my favorite details—and there were so many details! To wrap up our behind-the-scenes blog posts, we put together a slideshow of 10 elements that we haven’t shared yet, but made our New Year’s Eve wedding extra special.
