summer bouquets

Happy Friday Guys....can you believe summer is coming to an end...time sure does fly!!....and about a month ago, my friend and AMAZING  photographer, Suzy Clement, was visiting family in VA and she paid me a visit...we had the best time together....I love hanging out with Suzy....not only is she an incredible photographer, she's a wonderful mother and a great friend.

I couldn't let her leave without taking a few photos, so I made a quick trip to the market and picked up a few stems of summer blooms for Suzy to capture.....the wrap on the stems is actually a sash by Vera Bradley.......not only is it a cute handle wrap for the bouquet, but it can also be a gift for the bridesmaids.  How cute of a keepsake would this make for the bridesmaids…she is sure to think about the wedding each time she wears it.  I love the “paisley” pattern on this scarf….so fun!! 

Suzy, thanks so much for a fun day...can't wait to see you "next year" and yes, y'all, that's me holding the bouquet....have a great weekend everyone....xoxoxo

Monday, August, 27, 2012  |  Inspiration

Happy Monday and I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.....we're opening the cafe today with some sweet inspiration captured by Kahran and Regis of Creative Soul Photography... Kahran and Regis got together with the serious "dream team" of talented wedding artists and you are going to love their "Eco Friendly Wedding Shoot"..simply GORGEOUS!! and models Enez and Trey totally ROCKED it!!

Kahran and Regis' work is some kind of beautiful y'all.....and I'm so excited to have them stop by the cafe today so get ready for lots of "swoon worthy" images....Kahran shares a little information on the details of the inspiration for the shoot....

"For the table decor we wanted to use as many natural and recycled items as possible including old bottles, cotton, bamboo and paper. For the bride's attire we went with a gold sequin dress by Rent theRunway to add a bit of glam. We thought that it would be a good way to show that brides can definitely go the non-traditional route for their wedding dress (for MUCH cheaper) if they're willing to think outside of the box. The bouquet was also made of recycled items such as felt and old buttons. For invites we decided to use a self-mailing invitation by Papier Lapin that can cut down on materials used and cost. The vintage bar added the perfect vintage touch to this eco chic wedding."
