Modern Southern Garden // Featured Wedding

We had the pleasure of providing rentals for Victoria & Jonathan’s southern garden inspired wedding, featured on Every Last Detail (head over there to see all the details from this wedding)! The event was hosted at Haus 820, an industrial warehouse for special events – giving this wedding a fun, modern twist!

From the planner: 
The vast dessert display was set on a vintage ice cream cart and featured a 4 tier, hand-painted cake to match the invitation suite and printed goods. The southern garden wedding was inspired by Victoria’s mother’s Charleston upbringing complete with a flower bucket display. Reminiscent of a flower market, the metal bucket stand filled with florals served as the seating chart for the evening. Small escort cards were connected to each bucket with tiny white flower magnets. The room was filled with romance from the soft blue and pastel tones, twinkling candlelight, crape myrtle trees lining the space, tall greenery centerpieces and an abundance of fluffy blooms throughout. At each place setting an etched charger sat beneath a blue hemstitch napkin wrapped between white dinner plates and mismatched vintage salad plates that tied in beautifully with hints of soft pastels in the blooms.

Curating a collection

Yes, we’re pickers; we’re always sourcing and gathering new items for our vintage inventory. During our downtime, you’ll find us at local antique fairs, boutique shops, and flea markets on the hunt for unique pieces to add to our inventory. We found three of these guys below at a flea market outside of Orlando.

As we were walking through, I passed them several times. They were filthy, tarnished, missing wheels and needed a lot of TLC… When one of our stylist spotted them, she immediately saw potential and came up with a plan to refurbish the pieces for an upcoming wedding.

After a few weeks in the shop, it was refurbished and named Iceland. Potential is in the eye of the beholder 😉

Our stylist, Dede, partnered with Flowers by Lesley to create a floral stand. The floral stand would allow guests to grab the blooms of their choice to take home after the event. Wax kraft paper was provided for the guests to package their selections.

Bohemian Inspired // The Acre Orlando

Bohemian Tablescape at The Acre Orlando

Our bohemian brides love The Acre Orlando, almost as much as we do for weddings + social events. After all, what’s not to love. According to their site:

The Acre is a rustic, one-acre urban sanctuary and gathering space located in Orlando, Florida’s historic College Park neighborhood. This unsuspecting venue location is a hidden gem complete with rustic charm and wild landscape perfect for any celebration. The Acre is within reach of Disneyworld and Universal Studios, the beaches of Daytona and Cocoa, Florida’s Space Coast, and natural wonders like Central Florida’s crystalline springs and verdant national parks. Experience Orlando.

The space below is their Mirror Patio – it’s covered with ivy walls complete with outdoor fireplace. Our design team added a macrame chandelier above the feasting table. Our feasting table was dressed with Shibori inspired linen from Nuage Designs  and an array of eclectic centerpieces.

We’ve been obsessed with shades of blue for quite some time – naturally, we were excited when the chosen palette included textiles (full of texture) in warm shades of blue. The table arrangements featured gold cacti, terrariums, blue pottery filled vases protea and exotic wild flowers. We decided to keep the table design eclectic by blending wood table chargers with crystal coupes and sleek flatware.

***did you peep the hanging macrame in the “windows” – it was a perfect accent to their ivy wall. When designing, our stylist will help you enhance and bring out the natural elements of your chosen venue. You know, like hanging macrame in open spaces.

This bohemian inspired tablescape featured the following rentals: captain tables, macrame chandelier, french country chairs, and blue vases. Our friends at Treasury Rentals provided the wood chargers, flatware and glassware. Stationery was provided by Andi Mejia Designs.

Our girl, Lesley, with Flowers by Lesley whipped up the floral and it was captured by The Hendricks.

Bubba // Feasting Table

The Statement Piece

Your statement piece is seen as a direct reflection of your personality and is often associated with your signature style. It’s a mood without using words.

The Bubba farmhouse table is one of those rental items our couples often use as a statement piece for their wedding reception. They’ll typically design the table in a dramatic manner to showcase their individual personality and set the tone for the event. This couple rented two tables to flank the dance floor for their wedding party and close friends. When entering the wedding reception, your eyes couldn’t help but notice the head table and cake table  – they were the overall ‘centerpiece’ of the reception space.

Lee James Floral did an amazing job with the centerpiece and decor for the head tables. The garland was dripping with exotic floral, vintage candlesticks and arrangements throughout. Did you peep the merlot and black candles!

Wedding Inspo :: Burgundy + Copper

Nicole and Michael held their outdoor wedding at Cypress Grove Estate House and they featured one of my most favorite colors in their wedding palette – burgundy! This rich hue made an appearance in their stationery suite, throughout the floral, and even in their specialty rentals from our inventory.

Pro tip :: incorporating your color palette or a particular design into your invites gives guests a taste of what to expect at your wedding.

The couple worked with our bestie, Lesley with Flowers by Lesley, to dream up a simple but oh, so romantic ceremony-scape complete with flowy white draping, some gorgeous gazebo arrangements, and a lovely lush garland to drape the back row of seating.

When it came to vintage rentals we had the perfect pieces to complement Nicole + Michael’s color palette – a mix of sofas, chairs, and side tables from our Chicago and Santa Rosa collections made up a plush social lounge and copper chargers added another pop of color + some great texture in the reception space.

Pro tip :: feature a mix of traditional rounds with rustic farm tables for a unique reception look.

Table of the Month | Transitioning into Fall

It’s time to continue on our ‘Table of the Month’ series. Hooray! September is sort of an odd month…it officially becomes Fall, but it’s still hot as can be here in Florida. Since it’s somewhat of a “transition” month, we wanted that to translate into our table designs. By incorporating a rich color, such as marsala, with a light blush hue, we were able to do just that! Flowers by Lesley made our almost-Fall dreams come true!

RW Events | Table of the Month | Marsala + Blush

For our very first look, we combined hues of marsala and blush with gold touches. We used a lovely Blush Lamour linen from Over The Top, along with the Bordeaux Lamour napkins from GBS Linens. At each place setting, we featured Gold Rim glass chargers with darling gold flatware from Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals. Also at each place setting are dinner plates from the Luxmore Grande Estate. We just love how the deep red napkins pop on top of the china and blush linen. Now for the best part… the flowers! Lesley started off by arranging the pretty blooms in a circle, with clear glass candle votives of varying heights in the center. *swoon!* To finish the look, we added Gold Chiavari chairs to tie in the gold touches.

RW Events | Table of the Month | Marsala + Champagne

For our second table design, we coupled marsala and champagne together. These hues complimented each other quite nicely, and we even incorporated a dash of blush. To start, we used our Gregory farm table, which is one of our favorite pieces. Down the middle of the table, you’ll see a Champagne Micro Matte Sequin runner from Over the Top. Also in the middle, you can see the floral that Lesley stretched out from our first design, to make more of a garland look. Our favorite part of the floral design has to be the Red Amaranthus – it’s the droopy pieces of floral that you see throughout the arrangement! At each place setting, there is a Copper charger from Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals, along with a Blush Lamour napkin from GBS Linens. We think the French Country Chairs complimented the design and farm table beautifully.

RW Events | Table of the Month | Marsala + Greenery

Last but not certainly not least, our third design showcases marsala paired with touches of greenery. We started off with our greenery walls, Fern, to make a statement in the background. In front of the walls, we placed one of our sweetheart tables, Monroe. Lesley converted the garland onto the sweetheart table, and made it drip off the front of the table a bit. We recently discovered this Ivory Organza runner from GBS Linens, and we think it’s stunning across farm tables. At each place setting, we used the Gold Rimmed glass charger again, along with some of our mismatched china, and Bordeaux Lamour napkins from GBS Linens. We think the Silver Industrial chairs add a different element to the design, and we can’t get enough of them! To complete the look, Lesley brought in the clear glass candle votives, and added a bit of floral and greenery to the chairs.

We hope you enjoyed our September tables! If you happened to miss last month’s design, take a peek here!
