meet preston & olivia

preston & olivia is a brand-spanking new gorgeous line of wedding accessories designed by fashionable southern belle now new yorker dara kent cobb.  in dara's words: "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."
i had the distinct pleasure of designing flowers for the debut collection's shoot.  inspired by dara's vintage sensibilities, the fabric and palette as well as her southern roots, i used juliet and yves piaget roses, dusty miller, mimosa, eucalyptus, ranunculus, hellebore and yes, cotton to create designs that would complement the collection and the styling.  it was a great shoot and it's always a supremely fun to work with talented people.
one last, albeit, important note.  the collection was lovingly shot by wedding and portrait photographer extraordinaire, trent bailey cobb, who happens to be dara's mr. {hence my use of the adverb lovingly}.  talk about power couple!

the shoot is also being featured on 100 layer cake which includes a giveaway!  click here for more details.
