Wedding Veils : My Olivia Nelson Photo Shoot

© Jasmine Star. This post cannot be republished without permission. Stealing makes me sad.
I
had the honor of working with an amazing team recently to highlight wedding veils and hairpieces by the ever lovely My Olivia Nelson. Ideas were thrown around like pieces of a dandelion, but we settled on a shoot in Newport Beach...and featured a ton of new bridal accessories from the 2013 collection. There's something beautiful about collaborating with people who share a common vision and it breathes new life into my camera.

Many thanks to the fabulous crew who made it happen...
Design and Styling: Intertwined Events
Rentals: Found Vintage Rentals
Parasol: Bella Umbrella
Dresses: Lovely Bride + Alisa Benay
Makeup + Hair: 1011 Makeup
Accessories: My Olivia Nelson

To make things extra delightful, the uber fab Jen Campbell of Green Wedding Shoes will be featuring more photos from this shoot later today, so feel free to check it out!




After this shoot, I suddenly felt my life was incomplete if I didn't have a pair of lace gloves. True story. Maybe it's that last little bit of Madonna in me.




























Happy Friday and thanks to Green Wedding Shoes for featuring it later today as well!
