Vintage Reception Table with Clear Goblets and Wands

Styled Shoot – Magical Vineyard Vow Renewal

Crystals, silver, gold, and wizard wands – magic was in the air at this styled shoot held last September. A collaboration by a host of phenomenal vendors resulted in an enchanting and bewitching vow renewal for Stephanie and Matt, an actual couple who own Beauty & the Budget Events. The ethereal images are courtesy of Southern Belle Photography.

Our contributions to the tablescape included vintage silver platters used as chargers, vintage cream and gold dinner plates, and vintage glass salad plates. Vintage crystal goblets and silver-plate flatware exquisitely complemented the magical theme. Also, take note the crystal candleholders and bobeches – aren’t they brilliant?

Sweetheart Table with Colorful Bottles and Vases

Styled Shoot – A Stunningly Vibrant Shoot Inspired by Frida Kahlo

I was a child who went about in a world of colors.” – Frida Kahlo (Spanish Mamma)

Frida Kahlo, one of Mexico’s greatest artists and the inspiration for Emily Katherine Events styled shoot, “is remembered for her self-portraits, pain and passion, and bold, vibrant colors. She is celebrated in Mexico for her attention to Mexican and indigenous culture and by feminists for her depiction of the female experience and form.” –

We think you’ll agree that vibrancy and passion are beautifully portrayed in this shoot! The gorgeous floral creations by Sparks and Sand Floral Design are a vision of heavenliness, and of course, the two models perfectly depict Frida and her partner. Her headpiece, dress and jewelry, and his suit are extraordinarily on point, especially when compared to Frida’s self portraits. The talented Cirque91 Photography exquisitely captured everything.

You’ll see many of our vintage pieces on the sweetheart table including the linens and place settings. The colorful vintage goblets, bottles, vases, and candleholders make a bold statement that we think Frida herself would approve.

The dessert table with the beautiful cake and desserts by Happily Desserted also capture Frida’s love for vivid colors. Our vintage touches included the cake stand, dessert plates, gold flatware, and colorful bottles.

“I would like to give you everything I never had, but not even then would you know
how beautiful is it to love you.” – Frida Kahlo (Spanish Mamma)

Bravo, Emily Katherine Events and sponsoring vendors! We are in love with this shoot and look forward to working with you again!

Styled Shoot – Sweet Strawberry Themed Elopement

We are back with our 3rd installment of the Green Wedding Guild and  ElopeNC‘s Spring 2022 Challenge. Fresh, juicy red strawberries were the inspiration for this theme and our vintage red pieces took center stage. The bright design by KaraMia Events and sweet photos taken by MKM Photography are a tribute to this tasty treat!

For the table setting, our vintage red/pink and white dinner plates, paired with a red goblet, look bright and happy! Vintage stainless flatware with the darling rose-shaped napkin complete each setting for the happy couple. Red and pink books from our vintage collection were used to elevate our red-flashed compote filled with lovely florals. A final touch was the pair of pink glass candleholders. But wait, take a look at those fresh and chocolate-covered strawberries. What a nice touch!

We love the dessert table setup! That beautiful cake, sitting atop our vintage milk glass cake stand, looks amazing! Milk glass was the star on this table – in addition to the cake stand, you can see a hobnail vase filled with florals and a candle holder. The touch of light blue, seen on the sweetheart table, also shows up in the vintage dessert plates.

Beautiful work, KaraMia Events! If you missed our first two features, check out Green Wedding Guild and ElopeNC Spring 2022 Challenge and “A Whimsical Tea Party Elopement” .

Vintage Elopement Table

Styled Shoot – Green Wedding Guild and ElopeNC Spring 2022 Challenge

The Green Wedding Guild did it again and this year they joined forces with ElopeNC. We are talking about the annual design challenge in which planners and their team of expert vendors create an original wedding ceremony and reception. This year the vendor teams met at the lovely historic Old Lystra Inn in Chapel Hill. Each had a different take on an elopement wedding and we are excited to share a series of posts that will highlight their work.

In a previous post, “A Whimsical Tea Party,” Emily and Eva of Emily Katherine Events created a colorful, eclectic Bridgerton-inspired tea party elopement wedding and reception. Be sure to check it out if you haven’t already!

Today’s post is the work of Hayley and Hannah of An Event to Remember. The color green, music, and vintage were blended to craft their tranquil, harmonic, and charming look. These photos of Rachel Abi beautifully capture their theme.

Starting with the table settings on both the sweetheart and guest table, our contributions included the vintage crocheted overlay, green goblets, green plates, galvanized floral containers, and ukulele. We love now our vintage basket is stacked as a petite cake table with that delicious cake perched on our vintage aluminum cake stand. To set off the seating chart, our vintage train case and floral-filled green thermos added an adorable touch.

With the groom being a musician, musical “notes” were sprinkled throughout. Notice the vintage 45s under the table florals and placed on the vintage green train case. Designed by Hannah and Hayley, the table seating chart was a creative musical twist and threaded among the table florals are strips of music sheets. Finally, we love how our ukulele has a prominent place on the guest table.

Bravo team! Thanks for including our vintage wares in this harmonious “green” elopement!

Pink and Yellow Vintage Tablescape

Styled Shoot – More Magnificence at the Maxwell

We are back with the remaining images from the incredible styled shoot at the Maxwell, planned by @jillianroseevents and photographed by @cirque91photo. Last week we featured the two splendid speciality tables – the sweetheart and dessert table. Today’s photos are all about the guest tables which we adore!

With these stunning pink and yellow florals by @blossombettys, our vintage retro yellow plates, amber goblets, and gold flatware create the most cheerful spring tablescape! Notice how our flower-filled vintage amber compotes, brass pillar candle holders, and mini brass vases were layered down the table. Can you imagine yourself sitting here as a guest with all this loveliness in front of you?

Bravo, team! What a pleasure meeting and working with you all!

Couple at Sweetheart Table

Styled Shoot – Magnificence at the Maxwell

First, here’s an update on our studio move to Boone Square. Most of our vintage dishes and goblets are safely wrapped and placed in crates. It’s a maze getting through all the stacks! Our challenge this final week is packing cake stands and serving dishes and finishing the decor and work rooms. After standing for hours at a time, we are grateful for our very unstylish orthopedic shoes.

Moving to a new location is exciting but having beautiful photos to share is also awesome. We are proud to share the work of a talented team of vendors with this styled shoot at the Maxwell.

Spring’s splendor was on full display at the Maxwell last month at this styled shoot designed and planned by Jillian Rose Events and photographed by Cirque91 Photography. Seeing our vintage goblets on the table is always delightful but the star of this shot are those gorgeous, lush florals. These creations are the work of the talented Blossom Bettys and we were awestruck by their magnificence.

Cirque91 provided so many incredible images from this shoot we’ve decided to spread them out over two blog posts. Today’s post are lovelies from the sweetheart and cake tables. As much as the florals are amazing, Sweet Haven Bakery‘s cake is a showstopper. Atop of our vintage milk glass cake stand, we hear it was as delicious as it looks. We think our vintage gold flatware and retro dessert plates look pretty sweet, too.

Cake on Vintage Plate

Next week we’ll share the vintage table settings – our favorite color, yellow, is the star!

Boho Style-Cocktails, Decor, Cake Stand

Styled Shoot – From Cocktails to Dessert, Boho is Fab

We have a confession to share – the boho style is our very favorite! Color, eclectic mixes of plates, glassware, vases, and bold create the most fun tablescape, in our most humble opinion. 🙂 Today’s post exemplifies this style in so many ways and totally fulfills the meaning of fun!

Our contributions to this styled shoot, designed and planned by An Event to Remember, are the eclectic mix of vintage candleholders, colored goblets, cake tin, decanter, and champagne coupes. The amazing mix of vintage napkin holders are also from our collection. Enjoy these photos by Hayley of An Event to Remember!

Styled Shoot – More of the Patriotic Shoot at The Old Cotton Gin

Hey there! We are back from our blogging break and also back to this uniquely styled shoot sponsored by ElopeNC. Several posts ago we shared a few of Wendy Jade Photography‘s photos taken in this cool, historic building in Warrenton, NC. You may want to skip back to see and read this post, A Quick See with More to Come.

Designer Meagan of Magnolia Collective created several different looks using our vintage blue & white, red & white, and floral plates. These were accompanied by our vintage goblets, silver-plate flatware, and assortment of colorful napkins with wooden napkin rings. Vintage decor also adorned the tables – books, teacups, wooden candleholders, and blue & white vases. Finally, you’ll also notice the small compotes filled with strawberries and berries – the perfect fresh touch to this colorful tablescape!

Check out ElopeNC’s blog post, “Vintage Patriotic Summer Elopement @The Old Cotton Gin.” Many of the vendors provide their insights and thoughts about being a part of this lovely shoot.
