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.

We hope these gorgeous photos transport you to the idyllic backyard of the Goodstone Inn- Happy Tuesday!

Our Brentwood Natural Sweetheart Table looks so dreamy here! We can’t get enough of this romantic setup. And how gorgeous are these florals and our go-to Sonoma Crossback Chairs?!There’s a reason our Lila Amethyst Wingback Chair always gets the most Instagram likes- it’s simultaneously elegant and romantic! Plus, that color is SO unique!Emily Baird’s designs are so gorgeous they always steal the show, but we’re especially smitten with them displayed on this lovely lace and vintage silver platter!Our Monroe Settee is brand new and we couldn’t be happier with how its first styled shots turned out!

Something Vintage Warehouse || BTS Staff Holiday Party 2017

Something Vintage Warehouse || BTS Staff Holiday Party 2017

We are entering 2018 full of gratitude! Thank you to all of our friends, family, clients, employees, and friendors for their support and love in 2017! It has been quite a year- we doubled our warehouse and completed 320 freakin’ events! WHEW! We’re not sure how we manage some days- it truly takes a village, a lot of coffee/wine, the ability to keep laughing when it gets hard, and remaining focused on what’s important.

A couple of weeks ago we toasted our awesome SVR team and new warehouse at our staff holiday party! We hope you enjoy these behind-the-scenes photos of the set up of our par-tay- we certainly enjoyed celebrating our sales and delivery team members who rock it every day, and always go the extra mile for our clients! Here’s to staying positive and counting our blessings in 2018!

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!

Throwback to a Yuletide Wedding || Prince Frederick, MD

Throwback to a Yuletide Wedding || Prince Frederick, MD

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!

Did you know that drinking honey mead is an Irish wedding tradition? We love how this couple sipped local honey mead to keep them warm before they walked down the aisle!
How cool does our Georgetown Tufted Leather Chair look in this pic?! It has the perfect vibe for this outdoor, winter wedding!Our Palmer Garden Chairs are the perfect match for this couple’s intimate ceremony!The gorgeous scenery at Brian’s family’s Christmas tree farm is the perfect backdrop for our Bille Merlot Sofa!Our Hot Water Urn is good for more than just tea parties!

An Intimate Wedding, Locust Grove VA || Germanna Foundation

Season 2 of The Crown comes out on Netflix today, and we couldn’t help but be reminded of this gorgeous shoot that features our San Clemente Low Farm Table, Madeline Ivory Vintage Chairs, and props! Working alongside the planners at Sincerely Pete Events is always a blast, and this was no exception. Inspired by the work of the French painter Jean-Honoré Fragonard, this shoot is simultaneously luxurious and whimsical. Stunning jewel tones fit for a royal complement overflowing centerpieces full of lush flowers, artichokes, and painted eggs. And doesn’t the bride’s Sera Vero gown look like it jumped right out of an episode of The Crown?!
