I’m feeling ultra-thankful to live and work within a community of like-minded creatives who can pool together their talents to develop shoots like The B Project, recently featured on Green Wedding Shoes for its industrial chambray wedding inspiration. I am appreciative to each of the vendors involved for believing in our concept and design and bringing so many awesome ideas to fruition. And a special thanks to Tiffani Jones Photography for flawlessly capturing it all!

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.

Pine Tree Field Wedding Inspiration
Just a few short months ago, we teamed up again with Best Photography on this gorgeous fall inspiration styled shoot. How can you go wrong with the incredible pine tree field setting, whimsical bridal gown courtesy of Solutions Bridal, and tasty treats from The Sugar Suite and P is for Pie? You’d never guess that we were swatting mosquitoes, dodging cow patties and rain filled ditches, while threatening thunder and lightening loomed on the horizon. However, the team worked together quickly to style and capture the gorgeous images recently featured on Green Wedding Shoes.
Rachel from Best Photography hand-carved the apple cups for our Hot Apple Cider Table…a little something to help keep you warm on a crisp fall evening! Don’t they look yummy?
Rather than mismatch every chair, we opted to mismatch our chairs in pairs for this shoot to emphasize the intimacy of the couple.
I am in love with the blush dahlias that Jenn Aquilia from Freshly Picked Flowers so artfully designed around our antlers for the perfect fall arrangement. And doesn’t Dishie Rentals’ colored glassware, gold flatware, and fall inspired (plaid!) dinnerware looks right at home on our hand-crafted reclaimed barn wood Farm Table?
Our Peddler’s Cart made its debut at this shoot and I was happy to style all of the delicious goodies from P is for Pie as a dessert display. Even the deer came out for a taste!
Who else is loving our Whiskey Barrel as a cake table for the fruit and flower-accented cake from The Sugar Suite? Many thanks to the other great vendors who made this shoot another successful feature!
What a treat to be a part of this extra special beach photo shoot with Becka Robinson of Studio 222 Photography, Tickled Pink Brides and Imprint Cinema! When Brittany Sobering, owner of Tickled Pink Brides, first contacted us several months ago to see if we wanted to contribute our vintage rental furniture and decor and explained the concept behind the editorial, we were definitely hooked. Who doesn’t love a sweet romantic surprise proposal? Yes, that is correct! Justin proposed to his girlfriend Colleen during the photo shoot! Check out the full post here on GreenWeddingShoes.com along with the video. We had a great time setting the scene and it was an amazing opportunity for us to work with a talented group of vendors from the Orlando FL area. We contributed the rustic sweetheart table, wood chairs, brass goblets, glass bottles, rustic trunk, glass float, and other decorative items.

We are excited to share that our recent beach photo shoot titled “By The Sea” is going to be featured on Green Wedding Shoes in late February! We had sooo much fun with the super talented Orlando-based vendors and our beautiful couple! It was a bright sunny day for us on Treasure Island Beach, Florida when we started setting up, but the clouds rolled in right on cue to allow for the gorgeous image above, almost an exact match to the inspiration board we used to plan the editorial. For this photoshoot Wish Vintage Rentals provided the vintage furniture props and decor including the salvaged wood sweetheart table, mismatched chairs, vintage trunk, green glass float, antique bottles, and other pieces from our rental collection. This story has a unique twist that we can’t wait to reveal! Stay tuned…
