The Knot – Winter

A few months ago, I shared the cover and fashion spread I styled for The Knot’s fall issue. Now, I’m so excited to show you Round 2 – the Winter issue! This one was extra thrilling to be a part of. Once again, the amazing Elizabeth Messina photographed some of the most gorgeous photos I’ve ever been lucky enough to have a hand in. The Villa at Sunstone Vineyards was the incredible setting – the most perfect place to spend a day. When we packed up, I did not want to leave as the sun was setting and the evening breeze was blowing. Dolce Designs created the floral wonderland that make this dream come to life. Erin Skipley brought her impeccable hair and makeup talent and made our gorgeous models look even more gorgeous.

I’ll admit, I’m like a giddy school girl getting to work with such stunning gowns like these from Monique Lhuillier, Marchesa, Claire Pettibone, Reem Acra, Ines de Santo, and Samuelle who designed that tulle stunner on the cover. Even the mens styles had me swooning with a tux by Yves Saint Laurent, the most perfect shirt by Dolce and Gabbana, and my favorite – the oversized Lanvin bowties (all thanks to Mr. Porter). And don’t even get me started on the diamonds…

Pick up your own issue, on stands now, and check out Grey Likes Weddings and Kiss the Groom for more peeks at the prettiness!
