Happy Friday Lovelies...and it's bouquet Friday at the cafe!!....a few weeks ago when we were experiencing triple digit temperatures in Virginia, I participated in a wedding event at Pottery Barn...(more on that next week and it was a lovely event)....along with having my "floral and inspiration" table, I thought it would be fun to have a beautiful model walking around during the event holding my bouquets....cute idea, right!!

So, I asked one of my favorite models and honestly, she's like a daughter to me, the oh-so-beautiful and talented Soliel to help me out....and I'm so happy that she did...just check out the gorgeous images captured by my girl Tori of of Marvelous Things Photography...Tori is AMAZING....I love the way she captured Soliel's natural beauty and Tori has my flowers "dancing on the pages"...you know I love that!!

Today, it's all about decorating with succulents....totally one of my favorite flowers and it's so wonderful to see that brides are incorporating them more into their wedding decor.....I love their organic look and feel and the best part about them...they are very hardy flower and succulents are great as favors for your guests...they can take them home and plant them......an excellent source for purchasing beautiful succulents for your big day, Fifty Flowers.com....they provided all the succulents for our shoot and they were perfect!

So I got together with Amelia of Amelia Johnson Photography, prop stylist, Dana Fitzgerald, makeup artist, Erika Nixon and our beautiful model, Cameron and we had a fun afternoon......Dana and I wanted to share with you a few different ways to incorporate succulents into your wedding day or for a lovely dinner at your home......and as always, Amelia did a fabulous job capturing all the beauty from the shoot....and you can also see images from the shoot over at one of my favorite wedding sites, Green Wedding Shoes....Enjoy!!

For those of who that have been involved in planning a "styled shoot", I don't have to tell you what all is involved....and for those of who that haven't had the pleasure of planning and preparing for one of the lovely shoots that you've seen around the blog world....let me tell you...IT'S A LOT OF HARD WORK!

One of the gorgeous shoots I was involved with last year, "Oh Happy Day", was one of the best ever for me.....best because of all the wonderful people involved!  Over the next few weeks, I want to highlight these AMAZING folks and let you get a peek into their world.  Today, it's all about the fashions and our beautiful models...and let me say, these ladies are as beautiful on the inside as well...I'm so proud of them and as my mom would say, they are "good girls"!

Thank you so much to Veronica of Veronica Sheaffer Bridal ........and to Lindsay and Elizabeth of Bella Bridesmaid (Richmond, VA).....to Lauren of Lo Boheme .....my girl Erika of Erika Nixon Makeup -  makeupondemand@comcast.net .....Kamala Bhagat of NATURALS Salon & Spa........and a HUGE thank you to my friend and she's just one AMAZIING photographer, Amelia of Amelia Johnson Photography

A couple of weeks ago, I got together with the girls and we created a little "floral bliss" to share with you...we literally put this shoot together in twenty-four hours...here's how it went down.....I called my friend and oh-so-AMAZINGLY talented photographer, Amelia, of Amelia Johnson Photography and asked if she could come over and photograph a few bouquets for me...she said yes and I really wanted to be able to have someone holding the bouquets in the photos.

I contacted my girl Erika Nixon, makeup artist extraordinaire and asked if she could get a model on such short notice to help out...well, not only did Erika get an awesome model for the shoot, she walked into my home with the most beautiful young lady.... inside and out...say hello to
Soliél ...she has a smile that lights up the night and she calls me "Mama Janie"!  We all had the best time girl chatting....so much laughter and fun....and it's always a special treat watching Erika do her thing...and when she decided to give Soliél  a "bright and bold lip color, well, we couldn't wait to start the shoot.

So, it begin...it was so exciting watching Amelia and
Soliél work together...seriously, it was pure joy...seeing Amelia directing Soliél and watching how natural Soliél is in front of the camera was truly music to my ears....and, of course, seeing how Amelia captured all the florals.....just so magical!

Thank you so much Amelia, Erika and Soliél....what a fun afternoon I had with all of you and it was so wonderful making new friends and building new relationships on a beautiful fall day.....I'm also excited to share that you can also see more from this feature over at one of my favorite sites, Munaluchi Bridal.....so make sure you head over to check it out.......Enjoy!
