It was a beautiful NC October afternoon when Olivia, Joseph, and I first met on the outside patio of a Raleigh coffee shop. I took notes during our conversation in so far as their wedding vision and, while those details have since faded, what I distinctly remember is how I felt during our meeting. What endures is my memory of their genuineness, kindness, and warmth. I knew that day this was going to be an extraordinary wedding for everyone – family, friends, guests, vendors, and especially, this lovely couple.

Fast forward to their January wedding day at the Cloth Mill in Hillsborough. With friends Priscilla and Jami, we meticulously set the tables for their 200+ guests. In planning for this day, I went into teacher-mode – carefully matching dinner and salad plates, organizing them by their table numbers, selecting a coordinating colored goblet, and finally organizing it all into a nice, neat spreadsheet. (Indeed, I was super proud of myself!)

So, within hours, our tables were ready for the Greenhouse Picker Sisters and Bowerbird Flowers to add their centerpiece magic. I think you’ll agree, the end result was magnificent! These photos, courtesy of AJ Dunlap Photography, for the most part showcase our vintage wares but trust us, the rest are just as wonderful!

The china and goblets from Southern Vintage Table made our wedding reception! Everything was absolutely beautiful and Shelly did the most amazing job at pairing everything together. Shelly was there the day of the wedding meticulously matching up plates and setting out goblets and we couldn’t have been happier. Shelly was the sweetest vendor that we had and we immediately had a connection – she took the time to listen to what we wanted and was so intentional about getting to know us and what we wanted in our wedding. She was super responsive to emails and always followed up with us. We got so many compliments on our plates and how our tables looked because of the china and goblets. If I was getting married again, I would absolutely, without a doubt, use Southern Vintage Table again. You can tell that Shelly loves what she does and her main goal is to make the bride and groom happy.
