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!
It’s another fun week ahead for us! Each of our three events next weekend have a unique story and we are pleased to share our vintage wares to each.
Four years ago, our client rented several of our vintage floral tablecloths to celebrate her daughter’s high school graduation. This week, her daughter is graduating from nursing school and she’s invited family and friends to honor this wonderful accomplishment. Again, the floral tablecloths will don her guest tables, along with our vintage glass dinner and dessert plates. So pretty!
Alexa and Alicia, our tea party clients, are hosting their first event for their community organization, The Junior League of Durham and Orange Counties. The Mother’s Day Tea will be held at Hill House, a beautiful, historic home in Durham and we know it’s going to be a huge success! We all are excited to see this day come!
Final details were being made last September for Cherry and Ned’s wedding but then came an unexpected guest, Hurricane Florence. They may have missed their original date but their nuptials will be this Saturday at this gorgeous venue, The Parlour at Manns Chapel. We are certain the wait is going to be sooo worth it!
So, that’s our week ahead! From Durham to Chapel Hill to Pittsboro, we know our our vintage treasures will be enjoyed and appreciated!
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!
It’s time to set new goals for 2019! We have 3 this year and here they are:
Goal 1: Move to a new location!
Our lease is up in March so it’s time to relocate to a place of our own. Sharing a unit for the past two years has helped build our confidence but we are ready to go solo! With several options on the table, we should have our new space selected in a few weeks.
Goal 2: Create a weekly to-do list.
When you own your business and do it all, it can be difficult to manage every aspect. For instance, there’s the physical part – inventory to maintain, orders to filled by selecting, packing, and washing and then washing and putting everything away. There’s delivery/pickup and cleaning tasks. The other arena of work includes answering and sending emails, paying bills, maintaining the website, posting on social media, writing a weekly post, and researching new inventory. So, with all of these different tasks to manage, we want to create a weekly to-do list that addresses both the immediate needs as well as maintenance requirements. Whew.
Goal 3: Set a monthly thrift store budget. Gulp.
This will undoubtedly be a toughie! We love to pop in thrift stores to browse the latest inventory and even though we occasionally have walked in and walked out, most of the time we leave with something. Vintage shopping overlaps business and pleasure but we need to set a limit. What that limit is has yet to be determined. 🙂
That’s it! Moving, writing to-do lists, and limiting thrift shopping. We can do it!
Looking back on 2018 through these beautiful photographs gives us much to be grateful for – our creative clients, talented photographers, amazing venues, and fantastic vendors. We loved meeting and collaborating with you all and hope the new year brings us together again!
We are proud of the accomplishments we have made during 2018 and are excited about the possibilities of the new year ahead!
