When it comes to weddings, we live in a stupid world. Find your love, tie it in a bow, walk it down the aisle, say "I do," have a dance and be done with it. At least that's how I felt after I got engaged.
EVERYWHERE I WENT, EVERY PERSON I TALKED TO HAD THE SAME UNCOOL, OLD-FASHIONED IDEA OF WHAT A WEDDING WAS. A SHOWY, THEATRICAL DISPLAY OF BIG DRESSES AND BAD HAIR. NOTHING BEAUTIFUL, STYLISH OR POETIC ABOUT IT.
The whole experience made me feel I like I didn't know anything about love. But that's not true. I know what love is - what it looks like and feels like. I know it because I found it when I least expected it. And I haven't let go of it since.
I founded Stone Fox Bride to liberate other women from the tyranny of the perfectly sanitized
storybook wedding . . . from synthetic hair and flowers, hysterical bridesmaids, insane mothers-in-law and puff, fluff and phoniness.
At SFB, we don't expect the world to be free of confusion, shades of gray or cellulite. We are, ourselves, imperfect people. We think few things in life are worse than sacrificing your personal style to please other people.
We believe that love - just like marriage - is beautiful, messy and complicated. And that weddings are as raw, felt and real as any true art form.
We've collaborated with some amazing designers to create exclusive darkly romantic dresses for the punk-bohemian bride who doesn't follow trends - she starts them. Our own house line - a seasonal collection of veils, dresses, rings, headpieces and garters - is designed to be repurposed and worn the rest of your life.
And our curated concierge service of nutritionists, musicans, shamans, chefs, trainers, hair and fashion stylists, financial counselors, professional organizers, life coaches, sex therapists, photographers and more will work directly with you to ensure your transition into marriage is tasteful, graceful and meaningful.
FORGET "I DO'S," UPDOS, HAPPILY-EVER-AFTERS, HALLMARK VOWS, FAKE TANS AND FAIRYTALE FANTASIES. CUT CORNERS, CREATE DISORDER, DO IT YOUR WAY. IT'S JUST LOVE - TAKE A BREATH, FALL HARD AND FAST, STAY TRUE TO YOUR HEART, YOUR HEAD AND YOUR BONES.
Say, "I don't" to dumb weddings.
We'll take care of the rest.
