From Alyssa Thomas, the planner:
“Staged at the Cathedral of Learning on the University of Pittsburgh’s campus, this editorial was Inspired by the delicate beaded details and feminine silhouettes of two separate gowns at Lex and Lynne Bridal Boutique. The setting for the shoot provided beautiful stone architecture and a muted old world feel which gave our imagery depth and visual interest, as well as allow the dresses to take the limelight and show up in a bold way.
The goal was to create a romantic and whimsical editorial aimed at the style-savvy bride who isn’t afraid to push trend and color boundaries. We chose a feminine fall color palette mixed with peach, purple, red, orange, deep mauve, and cream to complement these two effortlessly chic and one of a kind gowns.
Every additional detail from the loose and naturally pinned up-do, to the acrylic chairs, table numbers and place cards, to the casual moccasin slippers, and drip cake were selected to highlight trend, show how to bring these trends to life within the fall season and all the while still elude femininity, whimsy, and romance alongside the two gowns. The team of vendors involved did an impeccable job bringing this vision to life, showcasing their expertise and collectively creating beautiful work that will move the wedding industry forward and provide inspiration for the trendy bride.”

From Audra Wrisley, the photographer:
“Pauline and Tim hosted their wedding celebration just outside New York City, in the charming city of Old Westbury. Nestled between winding old roads and beautiful estates, they decided to have their wedding at Pauline’s home church, and transform the field behind it into a magical wedding venue to say their “I dos”.
Pauline has a background in painting, and brought her creative talents to the wedding day with styling and designing everything around a dusty blue palette with ivory and gold accents. She wanted the whole wedding day to feel organic and whimsical and used the talents of Ava Floral to make this dream come true. Lori’s incredible floral arch and petal lined aisle was the perfect setting for Pauline and Tim to wed.
Afterward a few dreamy portraits in the Old Westbury Gardens, the couple met their guests for dinner and dancing under string lights. Groom Tim is an engineer and came with all the practical plans to execute Pauline’s vision, including constructing a platform dance floor and string lights for their al fresco affair. Long tables adorned with dusty blue linens, romantic candles, ivory florals, and greenery welcomed guests to dine and celebrate the couple over toasts and dancing. The wedding day itself was a magical celebration, and I couldn’t be happier for this sweet couple!”

From Jenavive Belair, the photographer:
“Surrounded by Cydney Morris’ closest friends and family, the garden-themed bridal shower took place in a family friend’s gorgeous backyard. The event was hosted by the bride’s sister, Sara Morris, who runs Sprouted Kitchen (she also created & cooked them entire menu), as well as her business partner, Dallas Wand. There were about 50 guests in attendance and everyone wore their favorite Stone Cold Fox dresses from their closest.
The inspiration for the Garden Theme came from Cydney’s love for florals & her favorite white/blue color palette that can be seen throughout her interior project, The Foxalow. The table was adorned with blue and white pots, vintage chairs from Archives Rentals, fresh gardenias from High Camp Gardenias. Sprouted Kitchen served the yummiest salads, caprese sandwiches and small bites, accompanied by a plethora of Australian bakes in honor of Cydney’s engagement to her Australian fiancé (not to mention, the wedding is taking place down under!)
Beautiful speeches were made by the hosts, fun bridal games were played and a lot of Rose was consumed! Cydney, founder of Stone Cold Fox, and her best friends had been collecting vintage 80’s wedding dresses leading up to the shower. As guests started to leave, the girls played dress up in the beautiful garden & had a mini photo shoot. It was a sunny afternoon of spoiling the bride & Cydney couldn’t have imagined the day turn out any better!”
