Southern Vintage Table Event – Meet the Grandbaby !

Pink Roses

Large or small, a gathering of friends and family is always memorable. This event was especially so because the family’s first grandchild was coming to visit her grandparents! Of course, folks wanted to meet this sweet little girl so grandmother Sherry and aunt Ashley hosted a ‘greet and meet’ Evie party. With vintage tiered and cake stands filled with scrumptious desserts, tea cups ready for coffee, and vases filled with flowers, the hosts were ready to greet their guests!

And, here she is! Cutie-pie Evie perched on her grandmother’s lap. Notice that her pink outfit matches her grandmother’s hair! How cool is that?

If we were to select one wedding style that we love the most, it would have to be bohemian chic. With the inspiration of nature and relaxed atmosphere, boho chic sparks romantic vibes in every direction! These photos by Mary Kaitlin Photography of Emily and Abraham’s wedding at the Little Herb House beautifully capture the essence of this timeless style.

This mod, romantic wedding had all the ingredients that melded so well together – Emily’s flowing wedding gown, Abraham’s classic suit, the soft earthy tones of the bridesmaids’ dresses, the macrame altar hanging, and our vintage place settings with amber goblets on wood farm tables. Add to that the tranquil setting of the Little Herb House‘s converted horse barn and beautiful gardens, and the result is perfection!

It was a beautiful June day – perfect for the artistic teacher and outdoorsy soon-to-be physical therapist to begin to their lives together as a married couple. College sweethearts, Jessica and Stephen, pledged their love for each other at the Trinity Avenue Presbyterian Church with friends and family in attendance, then we all skipped over to the Rickhouse to celebrate with this sweet couple.

This love-filled day was captured by Photography by Bellagala and we are so pleased to share their photos with you. As a friend of the family, we happily set the reception tables and arranged the vintage dessert stands for donuts, the couple’s favorite treat, before joining in the festivities.

Jessica and future sister-in-law, Melanie, designed these lovely, colorful tables. Notice the three vintage table designs – one with gold embellished plates and brown goblets, a second with blue & white plates and amber goblets, and the third with white stoneware and green goblets. With the beautiful floral centerpieces by Color Fields Farm and our brass candleholders topped with clear votives, the tables sparkled!

Southern Vintage Table Event – Jessica’s Bridal Luncheon at The King’s Daughters Inn

Photo by September Photography

“Welcome to Jessica’s bridal luncheon!  We are delighted to have each of you here to celebrate with us today! Tomorrow we will gather at TAPC to celebrate the love of Jessica & Stephen, but today, TODAY, during this luncheon, we celebrate the special relationships between the important women in our lives – grandmothers, mothers, daughters, granddaughters, sisters, nieces, great nieces, and of course girlfriends.  These relationships add joy, richness, laughter, and fun to our lives, and we so fortunate to have this time and place to celebrate.”  

With this beautiful, heartfelt opening from Mary, Jessica’s soon-to-be mother-in-law, the luncheon was ready to enjoy. After months of planning, the Yayas were so excited to be a part of this tradition, honoring the bride-to-be on the eve of her wedding.

The design included an array of Southern Vintage Table’s vintage dishes and pieces. The vintage blue and white china accented with fresh gorgeous flowers from Fernrock Farm created the perfect ambience for this wonderful affair!  Presented on our vintage serving pieces, Durham Catering’s‘ delicious luncheon treats and Jami’s yummy lime tarts looked so delish. And, we are thrilled that Miguel of September Photos Photography captured all of this beauty!

When Kast Events and Company contacted us to rent our vintage blue and white china for Meghan, we knew another gorgeous wedding design was in the works. Oftentimes we don’t know the details of the wedding vision but when the photographs arrive, we are awestruck.

So, when we viewed the gorgeous photos of Krystal Kast Photography from Megan and Dru’s wedding at The Barn of Chapel Hill, we were more than awed – we were dazzled! Adorned with the fresh, lush florals of Wild Flora Farm, the setting for their nuptials and celebration was magical!

The photos are in from Pipers Photography! This gallery features the styled shoot at The McAlister-Leftwich House in Greensboro. If you recall in a previous post, Styled Shoots with Taylor’d Southern Events, our vintage treasures were featured in a shoot at The Parlour at Manns Chapel as well as one at The McAlister-Leftwich House in the same week. These two classic historical buildings are ideal backdrops for so many lovely photographs.

At The McAlister-Leftwich House, Lauren and Taylor from Taylor’d Southern Events created beautiful place settings with our gold rimmed plates, pink champagne and clear goblets, and silver-plated flatware. Scattered about the venue were some of our vintage decor items, such as brass candleholders and vases as seen in these photos. We appreciate the beauty of Pipers images and think you will, too!

Southern Vintage Table Event – Beauteous Butterfly Styled Shoot at the Museum of Life & Science

Southern Vintage Table Vintage China Rental NC

Hillary of Sincerely Weddings Event Planning had a vision – she wanted to assemble a group of talented vendors for a styled shoot at the Butterfly House at the Museum of Life and Science. This nontraditional venue is ideal for couples who love science and nature, and want a memorable wedding experience for themselves and their guests. As you will see from the marvelous images captured by September Photos , a wedding here can be pretty spectacular!

To prepare for the styled shoot, Hillary came to our studio and selected the vintage tableware for the reception. The vintage blue and white dinnerware with vintage amber goblets always make a statement and her design was impeccable! The bride’s bouquet, styled by Sweets and Stems, as well as the floral touch on the gorgeous cake by Rachel Bailey Cake Artist, incorporated the blue, white, and amber theme. Even the speciality drink served by Barbox carried this theme so deliciously!

Thank you, Hillary, for gathering us together for this stunning styled shoot! We all loved the final results and so did the butterflies!

Southern Vintage Table Event – Lauren & Justin’s Pastoral Wedding

Serene, natural, and enchanting – adjectives that describe Lauren and Justin’s wedding at Rougemont’s Sassafras Fork Farm. One month ago, these two pledged their forevers to one another and these photos by Kelley Deal Photography perfectly capture their beautiful day. With permission we have grabbed a few from her blog and you’ll want to see all of them; we promise!

Lauren and Justin chose our vintage white stoneware for their place settings. Mixed-and-matched salad plates and vintage clear goblets were splendid complements to their natural wood decor and farm-fresh flowers. We love how the napkins with a sprig of greenery were placed to complete each setting!

Best wishes to you two, Lauren & Justin, and we are so appreciative that you selected our vintage pieces for your wedding celebration! Also, thank you, Kelly, for sharing these wonderful photographs!
