All these pretty things


{various something blues, available here}

Remember that photoshoot I mentioned in a previous post? It was for Ciao Sposa, the new bridal accessories line by Ciao Nina. Nina O’Neil, who makes, finishes, and/or sources each piece by hand, is a homegrown talent who spends her workdays at the National Gallery of Art and has built an impressive business for herself on the side.

The day of the shoot, blushing nonbrides gathered for the affair. We got pretty, wore white gauzy things and cooed over Nina’s pieces, which are vintage-inspired, fashion-forward, feminine and wonderfully original. Who wants to look like every other bride?

Here are some of my favorite shots and/or pieces.
