I opened Stone Fox Bride in 2012 — a year after MY OWN WEDDING. My publishing career was at a standstill, I had recently met the love of my life, and I was tired of crying my eyes out in therapy about being a professional hasbeen at 34. Cut to montage: plucky blonde in jeans and tee pounds pavement, patches together a business plan, convinces brother-in-law to partner (thank you Shaps!), and launches an anti-bridezilla showroom in downtown NYC that feels like her living room. A groovy, enchanted oasis full of plants, patterned rugs, and beautiful bohemian dresses (conspicuously lacking ruffles, rhinestones and synthetic fabric).
Four years later, SFB is still that haven for stylish, mellow mamas — but it’s also mushroomed into a wild psychedelic pink cloud of all kinds of cool + crazy stuff. In addition to helping thousands of BRIDES realize their wedding vision, I've developed a Stone Fox Bride collection of GOWNS, CROWNS, VEILS and ENGAGEMENT RINGS, collaborated with INCREDIBLE DESIGNERS, and launched a blog for single gals, moms and brides alike. Plus, I'm writing the Stone Fox Bride Book, which Random House is publishing next year. Stay tuned for that, too.
You know what’s weird? If you had told me years ago that I would end up working in the wedding industry, I probably would have either a) punched you in the face b) put my cigarette out in your drink c) wept blue mascara tears in bed wearing only underwear. But guess what? Goddess had other plans. And I’m grateful for that.
