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. Molly Guy, creative director at SFB, is our source for the nontraditional bride.
Nick and I first met in high school where he was doing a foreign exchange program from Australia. I hate telling people that because they think this is some high school sweetheart story, but we actually reconnected years later in New York.
When we first met, I was shocked at his blue and red hair and eyebrow piercings. (Remember, this was high school.) Years later, he looked me up on Facebook because he was planning to move to New York. The multicolor hair and the piercings were gone. We started talking all the time and then I went to visit him in Australia — I'm spur of the moment like that. He had an amazing itinerary planned for my time there, but I’ll never forget the first night. He cooked us dinner, but since he’s actually a gourmet chef, it pretty much sealed the deal.
