Earlier this spring we received the most interesting invitation to join a group of local vendors for a photo shoot at The Parlour at Mann’s Chapel. The intriguing part was that the owner of Taylor’d Southern Events was flying in from LA and her associate was driving up from Florida because they loved the charm of The Parlour. In addition, a group of photographers would be taking photos that would be shared with all the vendors. What a wonderful opportunity for us!
So Lauren and Taylor met at our studio and selected the table settings as well as the details that complemented their design. We loved helping them find their inspiration pieces and couldn’t wait to see the photos. They are starting to come in and today’s photographer is Casie Weather’s Photography. We love them!
More coming soon! We also participated in a shoot two days later with Taylor’d Southern Events at the McAlister-Leftwich House in Greensboro. These should be on their way, too!

This styled shoot, orchestrated and designed by Monique Keys of Keys Events, is ethereal, romantic, and oh-so perfect! Shot by Ana Teresa at the historic Leslie-Alford-Mims House, this collection of photos will enchant you in the sweetest of ways.
For us, the best part of a shoot is to see what pieces a professional stylist selects that will capture his or her vision. We love how Monique created these beautiful place settings from our vintage collection. Don’t you adore those pink candleholders?
Thanks, Monique, for including us along with these incredible vendors! What makes us even more happy is that we have photos from more styled shoots coming soon.
What occurs every March, brings folks from the community together, and is always delightful? Yep, you are correct! It’s the annual Rolesville’s Chamber of Commerce Awards and Recognition Dinner!
We love helping with this grand affair for so many reasons. One reason is these business leaders are incredibly gracious and, second, they really enjoy creating a fun, unique celebration for their members. This year’s theme, Mardi Gras, cleverly fit their mantra for the year, “Unmasking the Power of Community.” How cool is that?
The table design was created by members of the chamber, led by Executive Director Rachel Morris, and we happily helped them execute their flawless plan. The final result was colorful, fun, and inviting – a wonderful fit for the exceptional leaders of the Rolesville community!
Thank you, Rolesville COC, for inviting us again to help with this festive affair! It’s always a pleasure!
Bridal tea parties are wonderful celebrations but when custom-made fascinators are added, an incredible experience is awaiting your guests! Hosts Anita and Bev planned this shower for their nephew’s fiancé, Cambridge, and we were very pleased to provide the vintage table settings and serving pieces. Aren’t their tables beautiful?
Now for the fascinators (btw-a new word in our vocabulary!)
Upon our delivery the day before, Anita showed us her amazing creations. Each custom-made fascinator was beautifully crafted and more fabulous than the next. For most of them, she used headbands as the base and then embellished with feathers, tulle, ribbons, flowers, and even vintage family lapel pins. Of course, their guests loved seeing them all on display and then getting to choose their own!
Thanks so much, Anita and Bev, for inviting us to help with this lovely and happy affair! We are so intrigued by these cheery headdresses, we may try our hand at fashioning one or two for ourselves!
PS – Photos were shared by guests to an iCloud album and Bev shared them with us. What an ingenious way to capture an event from everyone’s perspective!
Forest Hall at Chatham Mills was the setting for Meredith and Jessie’s wondrous wedding nuptials. As shown in this gorgeous photo gallery by the talented Morgan Caddell, this celebration was chic, vibrant, and oh-so romantic!
We first met Meredith and Jessie at an open house held at an incredible historic venue in Pittsboro, Forest Hall at Chatham Mills. They wanted lots of color, bold patterns, and charm for their guests’ tables and we knew our inventory would be a terrific fit. After a first visit at the studio, we set the date and agreed to meet closer to the wedding date so they could personally select their items.
With a cadre of support from sister Claire and mother Pam, Meredith and Jessie arrived the week before the wedding. Together we organized the dish racks by table with a mix of bold vintage patterned dinner plates and coordinating goblets were packed in crates. For the dessert table, a collection of tea cups in blue & white, red & white, and floral patterns were chosen. Vintage dessert plates, napkins, flatware, and decanters for water completed their order.
With sincerest gratitude, we are so honored to have played a part in this happy occasion. Cheers to you, Meredith and Jessie! Sending you best wishes for a joyful, loving, and fun life together!
Meredith , married on 11/17/2018 5.0 Stars on Wedding Wire I can’t express how happy I am that we rented our tableware from Southern Vintage Table!!! The mismatched china, colored glasses, decanters, etc. really elevated the over all feel of our wedding and was a perfect representation of our eclectic personalities. Shelly was such a pleasure to work with and really made us feel confident in our choices! Photos courtesy of Morgan Caddell Photography.
As today’s blog will attest, the different styles from our vintage tableware collection can perfectly fit your wedding vision. For Kelly and Kent’s free spirit, Bohemian wedding, our vintage wildflower stoneware, stainless flatware, and punch cups were the ticket!
Samantha Floyd‘s photos show us their beautiful, colorful wedding in all its splendor and beauty and, with design expertise from Folie à Deux Events, this wedding celebration befitted their personalities and spirituality.
Thank you, Kelly & Kent, as well as Erica of Folie à Deux Events, for inviting us to share our vintage inventory for this amazing wedding celebration. Best wishes for an extraordinary life of love and beauty together!

An October lakeside evening in NC may be the most perfect setting for a wedding celebration. As shown through these divine photos taken by the talented Ashley Steffens, we definitely agree! Ashli and Matt’s beautifully styled vintage boho wedding was held at the Sunset Lake Lodge in Holly Springs guided by the expertise of wedding planner, Emily Katherine Events. We are so excited to share these with our readers!
We joyfully provided many elements for this vintage boho gala. Vintage dinner plates, jewel-toned goblets, silver-plate flatware, and several of the crocheted overlays. Our charming vintage dresser mirrors framed the gorgeous florals of Springwell Garden.
With our sincerest gratitude, Ashli and Matt, thank you for inviting us to your wedding day. Setting your guests’ tables with our vintage tableware pleased us so much! Best wishes for many happy days, months, and years ahead!
We end our post with this wonderful review from the bride’s mother. Thanks, Kathy, for your kind words!
My experience with SVT exceeded all expectations!My daughter’s dream wedding style was vintage/boho! SVT provided us with the perfect pieces which topped off the decor which exceeded our expectations. Give SVT a call to find your perfect pieces too! We rented vintage dinnerware/glassware and vintage gold trays!
JP Pratt’s photos are in and he captured this most exquisite affair, Casey and Alex’s wedding and reception. We featured a few of our own photos in a previous post, First Look at Casey & Alex’s Elegant Reception, but these are the real deal and they are awesome!
As with most weddings, many different vendors provided wares for this beautiful wedding. Our offerings included vintage mixed and matched silver-plate flatware, pink and clear water goblets, and signs. We also provided a lovely collection of vintage floral dessert plates as well as the vintage-framed table numbers. Don’t you love the handwritten cards of photographer Annie Watts, gifted by another sweet bride? We sure do!
Thank you, Casey and Alex, for inviting us to be a part of this beautiful, joy-filled wedding! We loved it all, down to the smallest detail, and we were delighted to be a Yaya guest. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness, love, and fun!
Collaborating with vendors to create gorgeousness is one of our favorite parts of working in the event and wedding industry. Most of the time we are focused on bringing our client’s dream event to fruition, but when we work together on a styled shoot, creativity is wide open. From inception to finality, the cadre of professionals bring their skills and products to the themed shoot. Sometimes the theme may be like a fairy tale such as a wedding in the style of The Game of Thrones, or it may be a more authentic setting like a fall-themed wedding and reception. Both styles are designed to showcase wares and talents of the professional team and very rewarding to all.
For this photo shoot, winter’s rich hues amid elegance was the theme. Melrose Knitting Mill provided the backdrop for a bridal portrait styled shoot as well as a coordinating tablescape. To see the bridal portrait photos, please visit photographer Tugba Tuncer’s gallery on her website. The series of photos featured here, also taken by Tugba, perfectly fit the look of a sophisticated winter season tablescape. Twig and Tendril along with Fallon Flowers created beautiful florals to accompany our vintage place settings.
If you dig vibrant jewels and gold (and who doesn’t, right?), you are going to love these photos from Courtney and Lee’s intimate mountain wedding provided by Amaris Photography. Their design, using our vintage gold rimmed plates, goblets, silverware, and teacups created this magical celebration of their love for one another!
Courtney and Lee, we really enjoyed meeting you and helping with your wedding. Best wishes for years of love and happiness! Also, thanks for sharing these dreamy photos from Amaris Photography!
