Peony Floral Crown

Hi Guys, it's hard to believe it's the last day of 2013...OMG, this year really went by too fast.  I want to thank you all for stopping by the cafe each day...I want you to know that it really means a lot to me that you hang in here with me each day...this year was a busy year for me...for those of you that don't know, I also work a full-time job in addition to blogging, doing style shoots and designing wedding floral...hence, the reason why I couldn't post everyday like I would normally do.  Yes, I was seriously trying to be superwoman and it all caught up with me. So, for 2014, I'll be making a few changes at the cafe and in my life...I miss you guys and I promise to see you at the cafe on a regular in 2014, thank you so much for hanging in there with me and for those of you who left me, well, I hope you'll come back.  

Today, I want to share with you, one of my favorite floral inspiration shoots with two of my dear friends and they are both AMAZING photographers, Tori of Marvelous Things Photography, who was also the model for the shoot and capturing all the gorgeous images, Laura of Laura Gordon Photography ......Enjoy...xoxo

Hi Guys....you know, it's always a wonderful thing to have the opportunity to have my floral work published in a magazine that is truly one of my favorites....I always imagined being published in Flower Magazine and when I got the invite from them, it was truly a blessing.  To be featured in the same publication where some of my favorite floral artists have been featured was truly an "Aha Moment"!!

So, here I am...in the Summer issue....I'm designing a DIY flower crown and get this...I'm being photographed by Patricia Lyons .......she's one of my favorite photographers and favorite ladies.....Patricia's beautiful daughter Dylan is our model. Thanks so much to the wonderful staff at Flower Magazine and I have to give a huge shout out to the oh-so-sweet and beautiful Pamela, it was such a joy to meet you and work with you.  My next "Aha Moment" will be to have my work featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, but until then, it was pretty darn sweet and fabulous to be featured in the issue of Flower Magazine with Miss Martha on the cover.....I really thought she would have called me by now!!!.....xoxoxo

So what do you do when you get a call from the awesome folks at Fifty Flowers on a Wednesday morning letting me know that they want to send me a few stems....a few being 50, of beautiful peonies for a "peony inspired" photo shoot...and let's keep in mind that I'm working at the full-time job on Wednesday and Thursday and luckily, I was scheduled to be off on Friday. 

First thing to do, secure the photographer...I called the AMAZINGLY talented and super sweet, Larura Gordon.  Thankfully, Laura was available and was happy to help me out and did I mention, we had never met before, you would have never known this, as soon as she arrived at the door it was hugs and screams and laughter until she left!

Next, I needed a model, actually, I needed a model with great hair because I wouldn't have time to get a makeup/hair person for the shoot.  Who do I call, my girl Tori of Marvelous Things Photography.  Not only is Tori a great photographer, she's gorgeous and has the best hair to model floral crowns!

Okay, now I need a dress for Tori to wear for the shoot...no worries, got it covered.  Called my sweet friend Elizabeth at Richmond Bella Bridesmaid and told her a little bit of info about the shoot and she comes over on Friday morning with two beautiful Dolly Pearl dresses....Elizabeth ROCKS!!

So, today I'm sharing a few images with you on the outcome of our "peony inspired" shoot...lots of pretty floral crowns, a gorgeous bouquet and a couple of centerpieces....this is what happens with about a 24 hour notice...great friends and pretty flowers....I can only imagine the magic we can all make with just a little bit more time....Enjoy....xoxo

Happy Friday Guys....hope everyone is ready for an AMAZING weekend!!  A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of working with the oh-so-sweet and she's an AMAZING photographer, Laura Gordon.  Joining us for the shoot, my girl Tori of Marvelous Things Photography...on this day, Tori came without her camera, she was our gorgeous model...I love me some Tori....she ROCKS!!! 

Well, in between all the "girl talk" and laughter, Laura captured the most beautiful images of Tori wearing a couple of lovely Dolly Pearl dresses from Bella Bridesmaid in Richmond...and we made lots of pretty floral crowns for Tori to wear!!  I'm sharing a sneak peek today at the cafe but you can see more swoon worthy images over on Laura's lovely site.....have a great weekend....and those pretty peonies are from Fifty Flowers.....xoxoxo
