How excited am I?!?!? Our surprise wedding is up on Washington Bride & Groom today! About a month ago, we were featured in the Spring Issue of the magazine and today we’re up on the blog! Almost three years ago (and two babies later but who’s counting?!), Zach and I had our warehouse “launch party” at the Something Vintage warehouse and surprised our guests with a wedding!
I felt A LOT of self-imposed pressure to make our wedding incredible because we are in the wedding industry, I wanted it to be creative, beautiful, and an intimate party but I didn’t want to spend the two years planning it. So thinking out of the box, we decided to have it here at our warehouse because Something Vintage brought us together, he proposed to me here, we have a shared love of vintage pieces, everything DC, and creating pieces with reclaimed wood (from DC!). Let me just say, that it took a lot to get this place ready because we had just moved in two months earlier and it was a mess. We also decided to call it our warehouse “launch” party because it has plausible deniability and would get our friends and family who lived across the country to come! And they did and neither of our sets of parents or friends knew! Despite the torrential downpour that scuttled my vision for an all upholstered seating ceremony, everything else that day was perfect!
Can we talk about these amazing wood invitations Sugar Taylor designed AND hand painted. INSANE TALENT!! (more…)
At Something Vintage Rentals, our obsession and passion has always been handmade and vintage pieces! We think this is why our style resonates so deeply with couples aiming for a boho wedding. Bohemian weddings are all about embracing rustic elements, vintage accents, and natural materials so our mission to restore pieces by using reclaimed wood and heirloom furniture frames is right up their alley! We think it’s pretty much a match made in heaven!
A few months ago, the Huffington Post and Wedding Wire asked us to predict the wedding trends most likely to take center stage in 2018 and we immediately thought boho! In the photos below you’ll notice an abundance of greenery, lush flowers, natural wood elements, and inspiring colors. Plus, you’ll see some of our most treasured pieces featured! From classics like our District Reclaimed Wood Farm Tables and Palmer Garden Chairs to new favorites like our Lincoln Copper Chairs, there’s something for everyone. We hope you’ll be inspired by this glimpse into our boho collection! One thing’s for sure- this boho trend isn’t going away anytime soon!
Our Summer Rattan Wicker Chairs are always a go-to for boho weddings! Topped with simple greenery and accompanied by our Finn Sheepskin Rug, Lincoln Copper Chairs, and Mallory Brass Coffee Table, they’ve never looked better!!
Collaborating with Emily Ann on this styled shoot was a no-brainer! Full of some of our favorite pieces (including our brand new Monroe Navy Wingback Settee) and set at one of our all time favorite venues (The Goodstone Inn), this shoot is positively dreamy! Natural wood, lots of greenery, and gauzy romantic linens take center stage in these gorgeous photos. Plus, a few understated but STUNNING pieces like our Lila Amethyst Wingback Chair make an appearance! We hope these gorgeous photos transport you to the idyllic backyard of the Goodstone Inn- Happy Tuesday!
A little over a month ago, we collaborated with some amazing local vendors and styled a shoot at the Goodstone Inn to showcase some of our dusty gemstone hues! This shoot shows off some of our most gorgeous upholstered pieces, beautiful textiles, and our stunning Tyler Bar. The super talented Anne Robert photographed and we are beyond obsessed with these photos!! A full post will be coming your way in the near future so we can show it all off, but in the meantime we hope you enjoy this little teaser!
This couple is coming up on their one year anniversary so we figured it was time to share some photos from their special day! Honestly, this wedding is one of our favorites, so it’s no wonder it was featured on Martha Stewart Weddings earlier this year. Planned in only one month, the ceremony and subsequent bonfire took place on a family farm in Prince Frederick, Maryland. Designed to capture the couple’s rustic-chic aesthetic, their wedding features lots of natural wood elements, rich hues, and a dash of lush, velvet fabrics. Pieces like our Palmer Garden Chairs, Billie Merlot Sofa, and Brentwood Natural Reclaimed Wood Farm Tables helped to give their event the look they were after!
Can you believe it, we were lucky enough to go to NYC to work with the incredible wedding dress designer Claire Pettibone on her Four Seasons runway show for her 2017 Collection?!? Seriously, pinch me!! I have admired Claire’s beautiful gowns for years (and used them in many shoots) so it was truly an honor to be there and see our furniture such as our Nadia sofa included in her show and print ads! You can spy some of our pretty pieces in these incredible pics from Kayla Barker for the Spring Collection. And I just checked our website, our sofa is literally on the front page—is this for real?!! We will be posting pics of our pieces in the other seasons in the coming days…stay tuned!
