Barn Weddings: Contrasting Rustic and Glam

Barn Weddings: Contrasting Rustic and Glam

I had my reception in a barn, so it goes without saying that I love barn weddings!  
But I’m obsessed with the way the couples below transformed their barn venues to contrast a mix of classy and rustic.  Silver-plated antique candelabras paired with lovely farm tables and crystal chandeliers hung from old barn beams—-yum!  I especially love the way the couple used fringed shawls as table toppers below, what a unique idea.

I LOVE those mirrors in the photo above.   We have been collecting mirrors here at Something Vintage, dying to do something like this.  Any takers?

Our Farm Tables’ Debut!

Our Farm Tables’ Debut!

We are so excited that our farm tables made their debut at a wedding at a farm-to-table wedding at The Barns at Hamilton Station last weekend.   Each table is unique because they are made from 100+ year old barnwood planks, so you won’t find tables like these anywhere else, literally.  Isn’t the warm coloring amazing?!  

We love the feeling of history and family that comes along with farm tables.  So we’re planning offer couples their table as a keepsake to use as their dining table and to pass on as a family heirloom.  We can only do this with a limited number of our clients, so if this is something that interests you please let us know as soon as possible so we can make sure you can have this amazing wedding day keepsake.

We have been working day and night to hand-finish the tables to get them ready for the wedding last weekend.  We know couples put so much effort into their big day and we wanted to do the same.

I snapped these while the tables were still being set, so the centerpieces are incomplete–just full disclosure 🙂

I really want to bring one of these into our house for Thanksgiving dinner!

Our Reclaimed Barnwood Farm Tables

Our Reclaimed Barnwood Farm Tables

I mean, I could take a boring photo of our lovely reclaimed barnwood farm tables sitting in a field somewhere, but hey, I figured why not take a photo of everyone chowing down while seated at one?! This is a photo of my neighbors in DC enjoying some grub at the French country inspired baby shower we styled.  Mind you this is after we’ve all be eating for a while and enjoyed a mimosa or two, so the set up is a bit messy but you can definitely see our new tables.

When I received the tables, the surface was unfinished and hand-planed reclaimed pine barnwood.    I topped with with 100% pure tung oil to bring out the lovely old grain.  The beauty of old growth wood can’t be matched with today’s new wood, even if you scuff it up and distress it. The grain is just so gorgeous…I could go on and on.   Plus, the wood is reclaimed so we are sticking to our pledge of being as green and eco-friendly as possible. Seriously, how amazing is this table?!

More pictures of the tables to follow…perhaps a bit more professional looking 🙂

I spy chicken wire chargers made by Something Vintage…..
