Annie and Ben’s wedding was one of our most anticipated weddings this year. Why, you ask? For starters, when Annie visited the studio last October, she was super focused on designing a tablescape that was clean, colorful, and casual. She worked on several looks, changing goblet colors, napkins, and other details until she had what she and Ben wanted for their reception tables.
Secondly, in February Annie contacted us about wanting to learn more about our business and offered her time as an apprentice. By this time, we had decided to move to Boone Square and she was willing to help with packing up, which was an offer we could not refuse! By the time her wedding came, our friendship grew and we couldn’t wait to see Annie’s vision come together.
From our vintage collection, Annie choose our vintage white stoneware plates, colorful stoneware salad plates, and stainless flatware. She also incorporated our vintage pink goblets and vintage mustard napkins on the head table. And, finally the dessert table was adorned with one of our colorful floral tablecloth, and several speciality vases.
Seeing Arika Jordan‘s gallery of their wedding day at Carolina Grove was truly a joy. With all the pieces of the design set in place, the final look was glorious. Annie planned every last detail, from collecting the vases and jars on the guests’ tables and having them filled with colorful florals from Bowerbird Flowers, to designing the table numbers and adorable speciality cocktails named after their cats. The guest table assignments, hanging from a line outside, was such a clever touch, too.
Annie and Ben, what a beautiful, enchanting wedding day. May the years ahead be filled with love, adventure, and fun. And, thank you for such a lovely review!
We could not have had a better experience working with Southern Vintage Table for our spring wedding! Visiting Shelly’s studio to pick out our rentals was one of my favorite parts of our wedding planning process. She has a huge collection of gorgeous inventory, and she was such an excellent resource in helping us come up with the scheme for our table settings. Delivery of the rentals was seamless, and not only did our tables look stunning, but the vintage items added character to the (brand new) venue. Our only regret is not having used more from her collection! – Annie, Wedding Wire Review
