Celebrate Olive's 10th Anniversary!

 Olive is now eco pretty! Wearing "green" has never looked so good!

Olive has been working on some pretty amazing things this summer that we are very excited to share with you! This post features photos taken by Kristy Dickerson Photography of our new eco-friendly Olive line, “Olive Branch”

A word from Katriesa Raines, owner and designer of Olive:
Both shoots took place on romantic ranches in Atlanta. Southern nuances are found in Olive's first eco lovely collection of vintage inspired social dresses.

Olive Branch Collection, photos taken at Vinewood:

meet Rose:
Simple and pretty, Rose features a romantic sweetheart bodice made of ivory silk organic cotton blend, with an ivory and navy seersucker gathered skirt.

meet Alice:
 Modern and chic, Alice is made of grey silk organic cotton blend with a beautiful tulle hem peeking from underneath.

meet Wilhemina:
Wilhemina is vintage and charming with a classic boat neck bodice with a box pleat skirt. This dress features a rosette hem which is made soft white sateen and organic cotton.

Another word from Katriesa:
I am slightly obsessed with a new trend, and that is scarves! Why not bring them into dressy occasions? It kind of relaxes the look of the girl wearing the dress. Imagine how pretty it would look on bridesmaids...

What better accessory for a relaxed, southern bride than a scarf? This simple yet beautiful piece can transform a look… even in July! We love scarves paired with cute day dresses, but why not take it to the next level? Why not accessorize your bridesmaids in scarves? Matching or not, this is a great way to make your wedding party comfortable, chic, and memorable!

scarves add flare to a monotone outfit, 

create diversity within your Bridal party,

show off your creativity, and add a kick of color to your special day

This lovely engagement photo was taken by the oh-so-talented Kristy Dickerson. Monica is wearing a new Olive Branch dress, jazzed up with her personal scarf. We are so proud to call her an Olive bride! To see the rest of Monica's engagement photos, visit Kristy's blog.
