To my special family, friends, colleagues, the most talented designers, and our wonderful readers worldwide:
First and foremost, I want to wish you and your families well and I hope all of you are safe.
In light of recent events, I wanted to take a moment to address the current COVID-19 outbreak as it pertains to those of us in the wedding and event industry and so many others. With new information surfacing and travel bans taking place, many couples, vendors, and hotels are having to cancel or reschedule their celebrations for a later date.
Knowing how much time and heartfelt work goes into planning and orchestrating these incredible events and weddings, it is a truly upsetting situation. I am personally devastated for everyone in Italy, the U.S., and all countries being affected. I have a heavy heart for all that I know people are going through.
We started our magazine to showcase talent and the work of artists, and to tell stories of love. Our Grace Ormonde family is here for you and we will continue to tell stories of love.
As we are all working remotely from home, I have organized my staff to help me in choosing more editorial during the month of April to help promote your messages, photos, and videos.
To support our valuable advertisers, members, and followers, I am welcoming you all to submit any photos, COVID-19 statements, solutions, or words of reassurance that you’d like Grace Ormonde Wedding Style to post on your behalf. If you have any in-house articles, statements, real weddings, or photoshoots that you would like us to share with our readers and the Wedding Style community, please forward it to Liz@weddingstylemagazine.com. I will be reading through each submission and making selections to post across our social media channels.
Please know that my platform is here to support you and your businesses, from wedding venues, resorts, fashion designers to wedding artists around the world. We are all in this together. My thoughts are with you and your loved ones at this time, and I wish you all the best.
I have faith that the world will celebrate again. May all of you feel God’s blessings now and always.
With my sincerest love,
Grace Ormonde Wedding Style
