Emma had paid a deposit on her custom shoes and arrived to finally pick them up.

What she didn't know, however, was that her mom had made some special plans with the shoes, unbeknownst to Emma.

The most beautiful gift of all.

Emma's mother wanted to do something special for her daughter on her wedding day.

She contacted Lace and Love, and not only paid for the shoes in full, but she also had a custom message added to the bottom of the shoes.

“Wanted you to have a gift from me on your wedding day," the message began.
