    Believing that weddings ought not bring out the bridezilla in each of us, Stone Fox Bride — a high-fashion boutique in Manhattan — was founded on the principle that planning a wedding is also a process of self-discovery.

    Chris and I met at Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, NY. He was leaning up against the bar and I thought, "That guy looks like he can take a joke." So, I went up to where he was and mockingly started dancing around him. I simply approached him just to be funny, but then we started talking and he seemed normal, so I let him buy me a beer.

    For our first date we went to Kingswood in the West Village. I was nervous I wouldn't recognize him, since I gave him my number in a rowdy bar. When I got to the restaurant and saw him smiling, he was cuter than I remembered. I felt like I'd known him for years; it was very comfortable. He made me laugh like no one ever had before. Within the first couple months of dating, I started referring to him as "my last boyfriend." Two and a half years later, he took me with him to a jeweler so I could tell him what kind of setting I liked — he went back and took care of the diamond part on his own. He proposed when we were walking our toy poodle, Archie.
