La Belle Mariée from Preston + Olivia

A pretty fashion editorial showcasing the brand new La Belle Mariée collection from favorite Preston & Olivia. Photographed in New Orleans, the concept of the shoot was of a beautiful bride getting ready in a courtyard suite at the historic Audubon Cottages at the Dauphine Orleans. She can’t seem to pick between the three Samuelle Couture dresses and the perfect piece from Preston & Olivia. Her bridesmaids, wearing dresses by Swoon, must help her select the perfect look and get her to the church on time! Thanks to Trent Bailey Photography for the lovely photographs. Such a fun concept for a shoot and love all the dresses and hairpieces. Which would you pick?! :)

I think the pale pink wedding dress with the feather hairpiece is my favorite! :)

A little about the La Belle Mariée collection from Dara (the designer):
My second collection is entitled La Belle Mariée or The Lovely Bride. I designed this collection with a more traditional bride in mind. Traditional not meaning unexciting, just  more traditional in color and texture. I imagine this bride still looking for a special custom piece for her big day, but maybe she’s having a formal ceremony in a cathedral and doesn’t want to wear color or maybe she wants her headdress to reflect back on something her mother or grandmother wore. In keeping with the same Southern influences of Home, I created this bridal collection using timeless vintage/heirloom inspired pieces.
