Grace Ormonde is the co-founder and Editor-in-Chief of Grace Ormonde Wedding Style, a luxury wedding magazine with a focus on fashion, jewellery, decor, travel and lifestyle. She is also the author of Being in Love Never Goes out of Style: Grace Ormonde Weddings.
In 1988, Grace Ormonde created a luxury bridal exhibition in Providence Rhode Island that quickly became known for its extraordinary fashion shows highlighting bridal couture. While she assumed it would be a one-time event, that first exhibition led to ten more shows over the span of a decade. Then, 1998, Grace launched Grace Ormonde Wedding Style magazine as a local New England magazine and took her publication to a national level in 2003. The national and international expansion was a natural step for the growing magazine, allowing it to broaden the reach of its editorial content. In its pages, Grace compiled weddings of couples who had been drawn to her aesthetic, along with the work of wedding professionals who have a unique sense of style and artistry. Her editorial features have always been selected based on an understanding that the couples who were hosting luxury weddings and events needed to connect with the best industry talent to bring their vision come to life. Although Grace’s mission is to inspire couples, her magazine, book and website also honour the artists behind the weddings, as well as the photographers who capture them.
Wedding Style’s global success has taken Grace on photo shoots to the most luxurious venues and resorts around the world, allowing her to work with the most accomplished designers in their respective fields. “ I want to give women and men a collection of choices, says Grace. “ My magazine was not created to tell them how their wedding should look, but to give them the knowledge and inspiration they need - along with the best resources worldwide - to have their wedding be all they have imagined it would be. I am passionate about what I do, and I find fulfilment in contributing to the realization dreams-especially when those dreams manifest love between two people.
