Val and Lee are a fantastic couple that initially contacted us to rent vintage furniture and decor pieces for their Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom inspired wedding (complete with reception in a restored 1930’s dining lodge on a private campground in the middle of the Ocala National Forest). Several months later, they won Cupcake Vineyards “Love Deliciously Dream Wedding”contest, which gifted them a fabulous wedding package including photography by the talented Elizabeth Messina and design + planning services by Alison Events. Thanks to this package, we were also able to contribute even more of our fabulous pieces to their big day. Add to this some of my own favorite vendors, including Dishie Rentals, Natalie Bowen Designs and DJ Jacob Towe, and it’s no surprise that their wedding was such a super dreamy, romantic celebration! Head over to the great two-part feature on Green Wedding Shoes (part 1 and part 2) for even more of this stunning wedding!
The Wish pieces used at Val and Lee’s wedding are the Whiskey Barrels, Farm Tables, Mismatched Chairs, Brass Candlesticks, Kitty Sofa, Kitty Chair, Fiona Chair, Kim Chair, Rustic Wood Trunk, Ashley Rug, Double Laundry Tub, Brass Deer, Wood Cheese Mold, Small Wood Table, Wood Log Slices + Chargers, Mint Breadbox, Green Lunchbox, American Family Scale, Brown + Clear Antique Bottles, Brass Trays, Teal Bicycle + Vintage Bicycle Basket, Tall Chalkboard, Scroll Easel, Arrow Stake Chalkboards, Green Vintage Croquet Set, Brass Vessels + Pots, and Assorted Lanterns.
