Stockroom Vintage Is Opening Another Vintage Event Rentals Branch in Memphis this Spring!

Stockroom Vintage | Vintage Event Rentals in Memphis, Tennessee I’ve been dying to share this news for months! Stockroom Vintage is bringing its unique brand of vintage event rentals to Memphis, Tennessee! A few months ago, I met Memphis lady and vintage lover Leslie Tiscia, and I knew I had met a kindred small biz soulmate. Much like me, Leslie can’t pass up a tag sale or a vintage shop without ducking inside–and she has the growing collection of amazing vintage finds to prove it!

Since last spring, Leslie and I have been setting up meetings here in Nashville, Memphis and everywhere in between so we can scheme and dream about what a Memphis branch of Stockroom Vintage would look like. And we’ve cracked the code! Just yesterday, we signed all of the super-official documents and made it legal. I am SO beyond excited to watch our sister rental company in Memphis grow and become an all-around rad source of vintage rentals for Memphis brides, prop stylists, wedding planners and more.

Leslie has already amassed quite an impressive rental collection–think tufted sofas and heirloom china galore–and that’s just the tip of this pretty iceberg. When Stockroom Vintage Memphis officially launches in Spring 2014, you’ll be able to view the entire growing collection of inventory on our website and rent to your heart’s content–I can’t wait! But in the meantime, I’m going to watch with wide eyes as Leslie’s collection grows and grows. It’s been so amazing to have a partner in crime. And the photos Leslie texts from all of her vintage hunting excursions…y’all, they make me gasp. Be sure to follow us on Instagram @stockroomtn for behind-the-scenes glimpses of the new Stockroom Vintage Memphis! - Elizabeth

Published: Our Dreamy Rock Quarry Love Session on Ruffled!

Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa SaylorHello, loves! I know the leaves are falling and there’s a chill in the air, but I’m thrilled to share this steamy summer session with you! This is one of the first sessions that I’ve styled without a lot of Stockroom Vintage rentals in tow. I wanted this love session to be sweet, simple and all about summer loving. I must admit, it’s a little strange to show up to a photo shoot without tons of vintage props, but it was so refreshing to focus solely on the concept + wardrobe styling for this session. And I’m so proud that Ruffled featured my styling in these lovely photos by Alissa Saylor!Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa Saylor Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa SaylorGoing forward, I want to share more details with you all about what inspires me when I’m creating the concept + styling + providing creative direction for photo shoots. There’s so much that goes into these sessions before the actual day of the photo shoot. I’m creating inspiration boards, gathering props, hunting down clothes and accessories, creating DIY decor and foraging for flowers, plants and any number of natural elements to get the look just right.Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa Saylor Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa Saylor Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa SaylorMy inspiration for this rock quarry engagement sessions started simply enough: I wanted to find a gorgeous body of water to create a sexy summer swimsuit session.  I approached friend and photographer Alissa with the idea, and she tracked down this forgotten rock quarry hidden in a small town a few hours outside of Nashville. And it just so happened that Alissa knew Haley and Eric, the perfect couple to model for us.Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa Saylor Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa Saylor Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa Saylor Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa SaylorThe way the amazing teal spring water reflected onto the walls of the cave created the perfect backdrop for the ethereal feel we envisioned for Haley and Eric’s love session. There is something so magical about this location. When Haley and Eric cuddled in the cave—and when they finally took a dip in that gorgeous water with the roses floating around them—it was absolutely dreamy.Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa Saylor Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa Saylor Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa SaylorAt the outset, I wanted to create a soft look for our model Haley–something that would provide the perfect contract to the hard, rough edges of the cut limestone at the quarry. I found this frothy tulle skirt and that luxe ruched swimsuit from J.Crew, also in tulle. We took a cue from the quarry itself when choosing her accessories. The bright green moss on the rocks and the untamed greenery were the inspiration for her handmade fern crown and the bouquet of ferns, and Alissa and I couldn’t resist tossing in some stone-inspired jewelry in water hues for good measure.Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa Saylor Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa Saylor Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa Saylor Rock Quarry Summer Engagement Session | Styled by Stockroom Vintage Event Rentals | Photos by Alissa SaylorAll in all, I wanted to design a session that would capture the beauty of the slow, sweltering sunsets I love during summertime. There is something magical about those warm nights—how they make you want to slow down and savor the last bit of summer. And there’s no better way to do that than to relax in a hammock or to find a secret spot for a swim with your love.

Nashville Event Styling + Vintage Rentals: The Strawberry Patch Barn Sale | Fall 2013

Vintage VW van + dreamcatchers | Styling + vintage rentals by Stockroom Vintage, Nashville, TN |  Photos by Stef AtkinsonHappy Fall, everyone! I’ve been dying to share some photos from the styling I did for The Strawberry Patch fall barn sale. I’m so happy that I was able to talk my dear friend (and the photographer of my wedding!) Stef Atkinson into collaborating with me one last time before she moved to Austin, Texas! It was so great to team up with her–and I love how she captured our styling + vintage rentals!

Vintage VW van + dreamcatchers | Styling + vintage rentals by Stockroom Vintage, Nashville, TN |  Photos by Stef Atkinson DIY boho teepee / tipi | Styling + vintage rentals by Stockroom Vintage, Nashville, TN |  Photos by Stef AtkinsonMy styling vision for the sale was a laid-back, ethereal boho vibe with lots of airy, whimsical touches. I made dozens of dreamcatchers and rustic floral halo wreaths by hand. But the biggest DIY endeavor for this event was, by far, the fabric teepee! My husband built the frame and then I tied hundreds and hundreds of strips of vintage and reclaimed fabric around it. I’m so thrilled with how it turned out–the way the light shined through the strips of fabric was gorgeous. It was so sweet to see tons of kids (okay, and plenty of adults, too!) taking turns hanging out in this little boho teepee at the barn sale!

Vintage VW van + dreamcatchers | Styling + vintage rentals by Stockroom Vintage, Nashville, TN |  Photos by Stef AtkinsonOf course, one of the main attractions was this vintage VW van loaned to us again by Sara Beth Hunter Pegg, one of the vendors at the sale. I would give anything to take this beauty out for a spin–or on an epic road trip!

I made the backdrop out of strips of vintage lace and other sheer fabrics.  These rustic floral grapevine halos were one of my favorite DIY touches for this event. They were just so simple and sweet! Thanks to all of our friends–old and new–who visited us at this sale. And thanks to Gretchen Fuhrman, the newest addition to the Stockroom Vintage team, who assisted with DIYs and styling for this event. If you’re ever in Austin, Texas and looking for an amazing photographer, please look up Stef Atkinson. She’s such a doll! - Elizabeth

Published: Our Vintage Styled Farm-to-Table Wedding on Fab You Bliss

Vintage Summer Farm-to-Table Wedding | Vintage Rentals + Styling by Stockroom Vintage, Nashville, TN | Photos by Kelsey HarrisonI’m so excited to share this farm-to-table session that I styled for Kelsey Harrison Photography with you all–it’s really special for a couple reasons, aside from the fact that is was featured by Fab You Bliss! First, my mom assisted me in styling this shoot while she was visiting Nashville this summer. How cute is that?! And second, the couple has the sweetest story. From the bride Casey:

“Kalen and I met 4 years ago and soon after decided we should be together. The wedding planning quickly began and the pressure was on! Dates were set, dress purchased, church secured, photographer booked…all the big essentials were nailed down. As the cost built up so did stress and it began to take a toll on us. Arguments arose over silly little things and we canceled the big day and broke up!

About a month later we felt like we made a mistake. We knew we were supposed to be together but the big American-sized wedding wasn’t our style. So we hit the courthouse! Two years later, we were still thankful we didn’t spend the money but wished we at least had photos. That’s when Kelsey came into the picture. Our pictures are amazing and we’re so thankful for her talented eye!”

Vintage Summer Farm-to-Table Wedding | Vintage Rentals + Styling by Stockroom Vintage, Nashville, TN | Photos by Kelsey HarrisonVintage Summer Farm-to-Table Wedding | Vintage Rentals + Styling by Stockroom Vintage, Nashville, TN | Photos by Kelsey HarrisonWhen Kelsey first shared Casey and Kalen’s story with me, I was on board with the shoot immediately. We wanted to give Casey and Kalen the most amazing wedding photos–and we wanted to give Casey a chance to wear her wedding gown and do a first look with Kalen. (She’d been holding onto the wedding dress she’d bought and never worn all that time!)

So I styled a natural, earthy session at Maplehurst Farm for them. A dessert bar with heart-shaped hand pies and an intimate dinner table with vintage plates and glasses and flower arrangements with fresh fruits and veggies set the tone for the session. With all the chickens, giant sunflowers and fruit dripping from the trees, the day was magical but simple–a setting that really let Casey and Kalen’s love for each other shine.

I wanted to create a bar that I hadn’t seen anywhere else–something that had a down-home Southern quality–and this simple, laid-back moonshine bar was just the answer. I labeled each mason jar by hand to note the moonshine varieties inside. And when I arrived at the farm to set up, I couldn’t resist placing the bar right amidst the rows of corn. It was too perfect!

We featured heart-shaped, fried handpies from Dale’s Fried Pies on our stacked wooden crate display. Then I used lots of ripe summer fruit and pecans instead of signage to let our couple know what types of pies we had to offer. This is such a sweet, simple alternative to the average dessert bar display!

To stick with our farm-to-table vibe, I stuck with summer vegetable seeds and chose to feature a personal favorite here–some pretty sugar snap peas!

And as I was planning the styling for the fall sale it hit me–we should offer professional mini-shoots to those of you who would like some pics that don’t come from your cell phones.

I’ve teamed up with photographer Stef Atkinson, who just so happens to have photographed my wedding. (Which should give you all an idea of how much I adore her work and trust her eye! You may remember a few styled shoots I’ve done with Stef in the past, including this Vintage Summer Picnic shoot and my Kate Spade-Inspired shoot.)

Published: Our Nashville Event Styling + Vintage Rentals on Ruffled

Nashville event styling + vintage event rentals by Stockroom Vintage | The NotWedding - Nashville 2013When it comes to having my event styling + Stockroom Vintage rentals featured on blogs, this summer has been gangbusters! And as honored as I am to see my work on blogs that I’ve been reading and admiring forever, I’m always a little taken aback. It feels a bit surreal, you know? When it comes to events, I’m often so seriously focused on the details–and making everything so utterly perfect for our clients–that I don’t spend time thinking about press. So when I found out that the styling work I did with our vintage pieces at The NotWedding – Nashville was published on Ruffled, it was that dizzying kind of excitement. I mean, Ruffled?! Be still, my heart!

To celebrate, today I thought I’d share the event design + styling I did for all of the lounge areas at the event. In case you missed it, here are the tablescapes + centerpieces I designed. And a special thank you to Jessica at Soul Flowers, who designed all of the floral arrangements in these lounge areas, and to Jocelyn at Good Denim for loaning me those amazing reclaimed denim floor pillows!Nashville event styling + vintage event rentals by Stockroom Vintage | The NotWedding - Nashville 2013 Nashville event styling + vintage event rentals by Stockroom Vintage | The NotWedding - Nashville 2013 Nashville event styling + vintage event rentals by Stockroom Vintage | The NotWedding - Nashville 2013 Nashville event styling + vintage event rentals by Stockroom Vintage | The NotWedding - Nashville 2013 Nashville event styling + vintage event rentals by Stockroom Vintage | The NotWedding - Nashville 2013 Nashville event styling + vintage event rentals by Stockroom Vintage | The NotWedding - Nashville 2013  Nashville event styling + vintage event rentals by Stockroom Vintage | The NotWedding - Nashville 2013 Nashville event styling + vintage event rentals by Stockroom Vintage | The NotWedding - Nashville 2013At the NotWedding, we also debuted a sneak peak of our growing line of mid-century modern event rentals, which is a first here in Nashville.

The whole experience at The NotWedding was equal parts fabulous and exhausting in the best way–I almost lost my voice after chatting up so many lovely Nashville brides! This summer has definitely brought a lot of growth to this little dream business of mine. My vintage cup truly runneth over–and I can’t thank you all enough for coming along on this ride with me! - Elizabeth
