This September 23 marks the first day of fall—I, for one, will be celebrating life as a newlywed with my husband while enjoying the crisp air, pumpkin goodies and cozying up in my favorite blankets and sweaters.
This issue features the themes of art and fashion, both of which you’ll find scattered throughout these pages. Find both topics in our departments: In Style, meet Heather Baldridge, an experienced seamstress specializing in wedding dresses. Bride Savannah Brausen says, “… She always made me feel special, and I felt like she became family.” Visit Art to see what drives photographer Pat Donaghy to capture the shot for high school athletics—and find his award-winning photograph in our Last Glance.
Perhaps you’ve driven past Kelley Gallery located in Woodbury’s City Centre Plaza, or maybe you’ve stepped inside the art gallery and frame shop to peruse. No matter your familiarity, hear from gallery director Kyle Shanahan and local artists about what makes this artistic mainstay such a special place.
Whether you’re a football fanatic or a casual viewer, meet Caitlin Thielen, lifestyle blogger and wife to former Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen. She delves into their life in Woodbury and their recent move to Charlotte, North Carolina, her passion for fashion, mom moments and more.
And finally, later this month, on September 30, multiple community organizations are gathering together for One Woodbury—a first of its kind event celebrating Woodbury’s diverse community, backgrounds and experiences.
