Santorini, Greece | A Greece Destination Wedding

This gorgeous wedding has me dreaming of getting away to a far off place with crystal blue seas!

Newly engaged and visiting friends recently married at Lake Como, Evgeny and Masha’s eyes met again, this time over a Santorini coffee table book. Just as when they met, something clicked. As soon as they could, they traveled to Santorini to scout for wedding locations. Greek musicians serenading her with wedding songs met Masha, who wore her amazing, tailor-made Vera Wang gown, at the church. Inside the simply decorated chapel, women covered their heads with beautiful scarves in the Russian Orthodox tradition. They flew in their family priest from Russia to perform the ceremony in Russian in addition to Greek. After being showered with rice to symbolize fertility and prosperity, the newlyweds arrived at their reception overlooking the Caldera in a convertible Beetle. There, the mother of the bride greeted them holding a Russian brioche she had brought all the way from Russia! Following tradition, the newlyweds each salted and ate a piece of brioche. Then, they drank champagne and smashed the glasses, which in Russia symbolizes the couple’s luck in their future life together. To celebrate their lightheartedness, the reception was awash with glowing lanterns and square glass vases filled with mini olive tree branches.
After a night spent celebrating, Masha and Evgeny spent the day cruising in the Caldera, where they swam in the volcano’s hot springs and enjoyed a saxophone sunset.

How dreamy!

Thursday Trend Day! | Preston & Olivia Bridal Accessories and Couture Millinery

Photography by Trent Bailey Photography

Hello All!

Today is Thursday Trend Day and we are featuring what we think is one of the newest & hottest NYC brands out there, Preston & Olivia. I just love how founder Dara Kent-Cobb is able to create such lovely bridal accessories and unique couture millinery for the NYC lady!

Drawing on such diverse inspiration as her childhood in the South, Paris in the past and present, and New York street styles, Dara uses her fashion forward sensibilities and her Fashion Institute of Technology millinery training to design signature accessories for fashion connoisseurs.  Her pieces are beautiful enough to elevate an outfit, fresh enough to complement any look, and classic enough to be timeless components of a wardrobe.
In addition to her seasonal and bridal collections, Dara works in the tradition of a couture milliner to create custom hats and headpieces.  She firmly believes that “anyone can wear hats, as long as you find the styles that suit you.”  With an eye for color and a love of textures as varied as leather, fur, and lace, Dara handcrafts each piece with carefully selected materials and attention to the smallest details.
The most recent addition to the Preston & Olivia brand is a line of neckwear for the modern gentleman.  Combining southern charm and New York sophistication in the hallmark Preston & Olivia fashion, these bowties and ties provide the boost that takes even the simplest ensemble from ordinary to dashing.

Dara tells us, "I think that the pieces are very versatile and I could see any New York girl wearing them around town running errands, shopping with her friends, brunching in the village, or a dinner date with her partner. They're so fun and can make a simple outfit really pop. All you need is a good pair of jeans, some boots, a tee, and a basic blazer and you're set. My goal is to make my pieces Tailored, Relaxed, and Sophisticated. It's uptown meets downtown. It's classic design with a modern interpretation." LOVE that!

Real Wedding | NYC Wedding

Liv and Magnus are from Norway and booked Samantha Lauren Photographie to shoot their intimate Norwegian ceremony in Manhattan. They had been together for 12 years and both had just graduated from Medical school. Their trip to New York City was due for marriage, romance, and celebration! The short ceremony was entirely in Norwegian. Afterwards the couple drove through NYC to take some beautiful intimate photos. Including Pebble Beach underneath the Brooklyn Bridge and then to Lincoln Center for a few closing shots. Amazing!
