More from our Bohemenian Shoot

I recently posted about a photo shoot that we did with wedding planner Elissa Keno ( and Kellie Kano! Well, the real photos are in and they are INCREDIBLE!! Below are two images from Kellie that we love, love, love. Be sure to check out more images from the shoot on her blog and add it to the must read regularly list - I loved all of her work.
I also heard rumors that the shoot will be featured on and maybe Weddings Unveiled's blog :)

Memory Lane

Kate and I attended the King's Daughter Inn's open house last week. They did such an incredible job renovating this historic Durham Building (I highly recommend staying at the Inn for a night or planning your next event there).
After chatting with the owners about their renovation stories it got us reminiscing about 903 Broad Street (our flower shop). It is hard to image that for 2 years we dedicated every free moment (not working on building our business) to tearing down and then rebuilding our shop. We are so lucky to have a family that supports our crazy endeavors. Below is a picture of the three of us, Neal (Becky's husband), our dad, and in the stroller Ella (who is now 4 and 1/2)!!
(Our dad always said growing up "the family that builds together, stays together!).

A Recent Photo Shoot

We recently had the opportunity to do a photo shoot with Elissa Keno (wedding planner) and Kelli Kano (photographer). We had a great time with the Bohemian themed shoot.

Elissa's house (which she is renovating and doing an awesome job) was the head quarters for the shoot. We used her neighbor's backyards and gardens as the backdrop!

Liz (from Fox 50) was our perfect bohemian model. She wore the Christina by Junko Yoshioka and turquoise jewelry by the fabulous Kate Price.
