Welcome back to our "Vintage Floral Shoot captured by Kia Gregory of Kia Gregory Photography......if you are just joining us, make sure you check out Kia's "Styled Shoot" here......Kia's work is truly STUNNING and I'm so happy to have her stop by the cafe today...Kia shares a little info with us about the shoot... and I LOVE all the pretty florals....I hope they put a smile on your face.......Enjoy!

"This summer I headed to
Oregon to vacation with family and was pleasantly surprised with the abundance of wildflowers still blooming in late June. Not a girl to pass up an opportunity to put together something beautiful and capture it on film, I raided my in-laws cupboards for anything old and came up with some lace, tea cups, vintage mirrors, jam jars and an old table that's been in the family  forever. My husband was sweet enough to haul it all out into an open  space on my in-laws property and I was able to set up a little 
romantic spot for 'tea for two.'

I ADORE short wedding dresses....and when I received an email from the oh-so-talented and beautiful Kia Gregory of Kia Gregory Photography, wanting to share a beautiful shoot she captured with a gorgeous design from Dolly Couture, well, I had to call her up and thank her...the images are simply beautiful....let's get right to them....Kia shares a little info about the shoot....Enjoy!!! 


"I have admired brides that incorporate a little bit of vintage style into their weddings for years now. When Nicole Scates, a sales representative from Dolly Couture, sent over a newly designed dress to photograph, I jumped at the chance to do a styled bridal shoot  showcasing this gorgeous piece. Short dresses are definitely a bold statement piece and these images do it no justice. The creamy lace overlay is absolutely divine, and the blush-colored, gathered sash gives it a little more romance. I also had the fortune of having a bird cage veil created by Etsy seller, He Knows My Name, on hand to finish off this classic look. Shooting this dress in an old neighborhood with houses built in the 50s couldn't have been more perfect, right?"

Happy Monday Guys....hope you all had a beautiful weekend....we are opening the cafe with a beautiful "style shoot" that took place at Frank Lloyd Wright's Kentuck Knob in Pennslyvania....a charming venue to consider when planning your special day....the beautiful images were sent over by one of my favorite photographers and favorite ladies, Abby Jiu and event planner, Amber Karson shares all the details with us...Enjoy!

"It's not everyday that your event venue is designed by arguably one of the best American architects of all time.  Creating a bridal photo shoot at Frank Lloyd Wright's Kentuck Knob in
Pennsylvania was an exciting opportunity for our entire vendor team which hailed from DC, Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania.  Completed in 1956, the home integrates organic architecture, attention to detail and custom-made, purpose driven interior design.  It is located only four miles south of Wright's most famous house, Fallingwater.  The property also has an impressive collection of sculpture art including works from contemporary artists, a collection of English phone booths, and even a piece of the Berlin Wall! We were excited to design a look that highlighted all the various facets of the property and photographer Abby Jiu captured it beautifully."
