New wedding accessories line: Preston & Olivia + a giveaway!

Categories   Giveaway + Contest, Wedding Fashion

Love this beautiful shoot for the gorgeous new wedding accessories line, Preston & Olivia, shot by Trent Bailey Photography. Trent’s wife, Dara, started the line and it and the shoot are so pretty!

Here’s a little bit about the collection from the designer herself:

“For this first collection, I wanted the focus to be about the fabrics and textures for each piece, all while keeping each item timeless. I referred back to the basics of millinery and the techniques I learned in classes at FIT. As for inspiration for each piece, I looked at vintage hats and embellishments found in flea markets, antique shops, and my grandmother’s cedar chest (a favorite spot of mine to visit as a child). This collection is filled with nostalgia for the place I left behind (my home state of Louisiana) but is only a preview for the wonderful things that are to come for Preston & Olivia.”

Isn’t it kind of divine? Such beautiful pieces and the styling from Merci New York (and the photography of course) is gorg.

And now the best part… the giveaway! Dara has graciously offered to give this double flower halo headpiece to one lucky reader. Leave a comment and we’ll select and email the winner at the end of the week. Buenas suerte!

photography:  Trent Bailey Photography / styling: Merci New York /  makeup: Facetime Beauty Concierge / flowers: Kat Flower /  suiting: Billy Reid /  venue:  The Green Building / wardrobe from H&M and Gabriella New York.

Update! Thanks for participating in our giveaway. Congrats to our winner, Whitney Kay!

Italian Bride making the countdown to the BIG DAY: in one month I will get married, I will pronounce the words "Yes I Do" or better "Si, lo voglio", to say in in my mothertongue ;-) I am totally inspired by this blog, so many nice ideas (I have stolen some for my wedding decorations)... Actually I have to say it would be so NICE to have a little present from YOU...and I really love the headpiece and it would match perfectly with my wedding gown ;-) (PS. Exscuse me for the mistakes...I've not been writing in English for such I long time, that I'm really surprised I managed to leave a comment ;-D)

Ahhhh! So much of this is straight out of a Jane Austen novel... but not. It's got the romantic look and feel of it. If you brought the Bennet sisters to 2011, I feel like they'd wear these pieces, especially the short netted veils. AHH! Classy! Oh so classy!

Arielle on May 11, 2011

Great job with the photoshoot! Love the colors and the lights, so refreshing. I wish it was spring time here, just to be able to wear those pieces (living in the southern hemisphere has its downsides!)!
