Wedding Inspiration: Elegant Bohemian Photoshoot with Kristen Winkler Photography, Southern Magnolias Events, Pollen & Pastry, Allerton Park & Retreat Center and Spruce Rentals

I was reorganizing the Spruce Pinterest account when I realized I hadn't shared these photos from this beautiful photoshoot.  I could go on and on about how beautiful everything turned out, but A.) the photos were accepted by both Cake and Lace AND Borrowed and Blue (since closed down); and B.) Allerton Park is now using one of the photos as the front cover of their advertising materials.  I think you'll see these beautiful photos speak for themselves, inspiring couples all over the country to plan a memorable romantic wedding.  Southern Magnolias Events did a great job pulling it all together, Kristen Winkler Photography and Hoop House Creative captured florals from Pollen & Pastry, desserts from Hopscotch, soaps from Wild Botanicals and more!  Enjoy & be inspired!

4/18/18 - I was doing a bit of website housekeeping when I realized - oops! - I had never hit 'publish' on this blog post!   I drafted it in 2016, and while a few things you will see here are no longer available, the vendors are STILL so amazing and I want to share their hard work with you!  My apologies to Pear Tree, Schilling Photography, Flowers by Kristine and Letters by Lindsay especially (and I'll be seeing you all soooon!)....

7/19/16 - Several weeks ago I was invited to bring a few pieces to Pear Tree Estate for a styled shoot & tasting.  If you are looking for a venue, I would highly recommend Pear Tree Estate - It is GORGEOUS!   Schilling Photography did a beautiful job as always and the amazing staff at Pear Tree has thought of every detail - enjoy seeing the beautiful food, flowers and setting!

Featured: 50th Wedding Anniversary Party with Molly Dolores Photography, Trailside Event Center, LeFleur Floral Design & Events, Taste by Renee, Projekts, I Do Events and Spruce Rentals!

It was such a joy for me to participate in this event, because it was my parent's 50th anniversary party!   My parents support Spruce in so many ways behind-the-scenes and it was fun to have them on the party side of the business.  Every single vendor went above & beyond to give them the most wonderful evening.  Trailside is an easy venue to work with because the room looks great with so many different kinds of decor.  My parents were only having about 100 guests, so we filled the extra floor space with lounge furniture and farm tables placed diagonally.   Some candlelight, beautiful florals from LeFleur, live music by Projekts, Taste by Renee brought some amazing food, 50 years of family photo albums and it was a memorable evening with family and friends.   Because these are our personal family photos, captured by Molly Dolores Photography, I've added a few captions!  Enjoy!

 The one request my mom had was that they would sit on the gray Edie Loveseat!

 Trailside can seat 250, but since we only had 100, we spaced the tables out quite a bit to fill up the space.  It felt just right and not empty at all!

Featured Wedding: Levi & Chevie at Trailside Event Center with photos by Kara Kamienski Photography, Le Fleur Floral Design & Events, Spruce Rentals, Trailside Event Center & more!

The greenery trend continues (and I hope forever!) and I know you'll be inspired by this wedding from last year - this couple had some of my favorite floral features EVER with the live trees branches & floral covered sweetheart table.  The bride is very involved in the community of Washington, IL had a very "Washington-centered" wedding and used several vendors from Washington.  LeFleur Floral Design & Events created some amazing designs with a variety of centerpiece styles and Kara Kamienski Photography captured it beautifully!   You'll find several inspiring looks in this wedding at Trailside Event Center.  Congrats to Levi & Chevie and their adorable baby boy!

Wedding Inspiration: Canyon Waterfall with Summer Leigha Photography, Floral Designs Ltd, Spruce Rentals, Cloud Nine Bridal Boutique, So Chic Boutique, Morton Rentals and more!

Dear Bride - Prepare to be inspired.  Just ahead are beautiful photos of a canyon, waterfall, gorgeous flowers, and even a trash-the-dress session!   Floral Designs, Ltd. created this beautiful photoshoot that was captured by Summer Leigha Photography (and Summer's husband was even a model!).  It turned out so dreamy it's hard to believe just a few miles away from this canyon are flat cornfields.  I actually love our cornfields, but...canyon!! waterfall!!  I know you will love this as much as I do...

Featured Wedding: Will & Jaime at Trailside Event Center with MandaKay Photography, LeFleur Floral Design, Dash/Wood, Spruce Rentals, Cracked Pepper Catering, DJ4U, Trefzger's Bakery and more!

Jaime and Will originally came to me because they were interested in a small pop-up wedding, but after much discussion and guest list planning, they realized they wanted a larger, but still intimate, wedding.  Their day was full of so many beautiful touches - including Will's daughter singing a surprise song for their first dance!  A few quick notes - Jaime's favorite color is purple, they did both the 40 guest ceremony & 100 guest reception at Trailside and we used the ceremony backdrop to frame their sweetheart table after the room flip; and while they didn't have a formal wedding party, they did have their six children stand up with them.   I've shared a few of these photos on Facebook/Instagram already, but please enjoy their entire wedding, start-to-finish, with these lovely photos by MandaKay Photography.

I'm so happy to share this wedding with you - it was truly a showstopper!   This bride wanted all color and Fabulous Affairs sourced vintage glassware (now available at Spruce) to bring even more color to the already bright flowers by Floral Designs Ltd.  I actually could have done an entire post of just flower pictures!   It was actually crazy hot that weekend but you'll see that once the sun went down the tent lights + florals were a pure dream.  All photos by Deidre Lynn Photography.

Featured Wedding: Lindsey & Nick with Katie Ricard Photography, Letters from Linds, Michelle's Bridal & Tuxedo, Spruce Rentals, Willow Springs Garden, and more!

It's always a huge honor when another wedding professional chooses my company to serve their wedding.  Lindsey is the talented artist behind Letters from Lindsey, and we've worked together several times - but it was a delightful surprise when she contacted me during her own wedding planning! 

Spruce Rentals Letters from Lindsey Katie Ricard Photography

Her Groom, Nick, is an entomologist, and Lindsey designed beautiful bee themed accents to celebrate his accomplishments.  I know you will love seeing their sweet Wisconsin wedding and I am all heart eyes for blues and greens right now!  There are so many perfect details to inspire you - I had a hard time choosing just a few photos to feature and can't wait to hear about your favorites.  You can read more about their wedding on Lindsey's blog.  Congrats to the Andersons & best wishes for many happy years!

Featured Wedding: Taylor & Clifford's Backyard Wedding with Miriam Bulcher Photography, THBclothing, Olde Towne Bakery and Spruce Rentals

Taylor & Clifford's beautiful backyard wedding will probably always be one of my favorites - it had such a relaxed vibe to it and Miriam Bulcher Photography did an amazing job of capturing the harvest light!  The bride, Taylor, did so much herself including the flowers, decor and even her dress alterations!  Add in a food truck and photos with the vintage Airstream the bride and groom have been renovating and it's a night to remember.  Enjoy!

Last fall Lauren of Lauren F.otography contacted me about doing a boho-inspired fall photoshoot in Fairbury, IL - it turned out just beautiful and so creative!  You can read about that here: Boho Fall Editorial.  When Lauren and Nancy of Fancy Florals by Nancy said they wanted to do another shoot in Washington, IL - this time with light colors & vintage style - I was so happy to participate!  This has all the elements of a perfect wedding day from beautiful florals and dresses to an amazing getaway vehicle!

New Name, New Look: Something Old Event Rentals becomes Spruce Rentals!

I am so excited to announce this.......

Something Old Spruce Rentals

When I first opened my business in 2014, I had no idea how it would grow and change - or how I would change with it!  However, one of the first things I did start noticing is that there are several "Something Old Rentals" companies around the US and the world, and I started getting tagged in other vendors' photos AND local vendors would tag companies other than me!  The second thing I realized is that "Something Old Event Rentals" is a crazy long name to type 78 times each day.  Yikes!   So I realized I wanted a smaller/shorter name, but wasn't quite sure which direction to go.    

Enter Sara of Sara E. Designs.   You may know her from all of her wedding invite designs, but she also does marketing & logos for local companies.  We met several times to discuss different options for my business & the direction I want to take it.  I wanted something that referenced nature, green is my favorite color and I wanted something that felt timeless and classic.   After we settled on Spruce as a company name, it was fun to see different variations of the logo.  

If you've been following along for a while, I started offering pop-up weddings as the Spruce Wedding Company last year.  For about 10 months, I have been running two separate businesses - different logos, different social media accounts, different audiences.  I wanted to connect my businesses in a way that made it easier for me AND easier for new clients to follow along.  Enter Sara of Sara E. Designs.  She created a variety of Spruce-themed logos for me to use - on my website, business cards, shirts and more!

Spruce Wedding Company

Because we are in full swing of wedding season and so many brides use my website to plan their rentals, I won't be taking the website down to issue a complete re-design at this time.  Instead I will slowly update both the rental site & the pop-up/planning site to combine them into one cohesive website.  It will take a while to get everything migrated over to the new look, but I am so happy to take this step in the growth of my business. 

Can't wait to hear - what do you think??

Vermeer's Window: Styled Shoot with Made to be Mine, Splendor of Eden, The Warehouse on State, Cyd's and more!

I shared a photo from this shoot, couldn't remember one of the vendors, went to look it up & realized I had never blogged these photos!  Whaaat?!?   When a photo shoot is done for the purpose of publication, it can't be shared with the general public until after it has been published - I apparently waited so long I forgot!  Anyway, you can see the feature here on Artfully Wed, or check out the photos below!  

Spruce Rentals - Something Old Event Rentals - Made to be Mine - Splendor of Eden

Behind the Scenes: We did this when the Warehouse on State was still under construction.  The photos of the couple standing in front of the glass block window?  That is now part of Thyme (to the right of the restaurant entrance).  We had talked about creating something that was reminiscent of the Dutch Masters - Rembrant, Vermeer, Hieronymous Bosch.  We wanted to show the quiet, simple life especially portrayed in that art period - including the way the models stood, the way the food was styled and the color scheme.  Kristi did an amazing job pulling this together with her photos and discovered Vermeer was especially known for his paintings showing light filtering through a window.  His most famous painting is 'Girl Reading a Letter by an Open Window' and you can see how it influenced these photos!  The day we actually took the photos it was about 3 degrees outside, so these models deserve extra kudos!

I think this is such a great example of how event design inspiration can come from anywhere - a painting, a song, an art period, a hobby.  I love it when couples want to put some of their personality or heritage into their wedding - I think it's a great way to share a bit of your lives with your guests and create an event that is completely unique to you!  It doesn't have to be as nuanced as a painting completed in 1659 - just the other week I had a couple create a photo lounge inspired by their favorite TV show 'How I met Your Mother'.  It was so fun and gave their guests something to do and talk about over the evening.

Spring Look 2017 - Romantic Boho in Pink, Gray & Neutral Tones

You see a lot of pink when you are involved in weddings.  Flowers, linens, bridesmaid's dresses, men's ties, even cakes  - all have been done in pink!   I actually used light pink and navy in my own wedding, so I really am happy to be surrounded by it.  I wanted to do a Spring Lookbook that would be perfect for my pink-loving boho brides, but also give them some different color combos to think about.  I created a soft, romantic look with plenty of neutral tones & a splash of bright fuschia for a fun surprise.   Get ready for some beautiful looks for dessert displays, lounges & sweetheart seating!

Spring Look 2017  - Spruce Rentals

Huge thanks to Le Fleur Floral Design & Events for the gorgeous flowers and Dashwood Shop for all the help - snapping pictures, moving furniture & styling.  We did this one rainy Saturday morning in my warehouse - and I can't wait to hear what you think!

New Inventory Week 2017

I love New Inventory Week - taking the time to feature each item ensures each unique piece gets the attention it deserves.  I hope you'll check back frequently this week as I update this blog post with new items!

Friday - 

The Kristi Sofa is a brand-new acquisition and also a feature piece in a styled shoot you'll see in a few weeks!  The brown linen and floral carved frames make this beauty perfect for many different settings.  

The Trudy Loveseat is such a cozy piece and I love the mustard/goldenrod velvet stripe so much!  I have several brides focusing on a very natural, boho theme and I think this would be amazing for outdoor bridal portraits - I can just picture it next to wheat fields.  The arms are so round it has a different shape than any other piece currently in inventory. 

Thursday - 

The Huntley Buffet is my second recently acquired buffet and it's amazing how it can be both casual and elegant with just a few minor styling changes.  It also has casters, so it's perfect for a rolling cake display that so many of my clients are doing! 

The Collins Buffet is honestly one of my favorite pieces right now.  It has such a beautiful shape and I can figure out a way to use the gray with everything!  I bought this buffet and another one I'll show later tonight from a picker in Decatur - both buffets were in terrible, terrible condition and although I had hoped to keep them their natural wood color, it just wasn't possible. 

Wednesday - 

The Heidi Display Cabinet is such a versatile piece - I'm always on the lookout for new ways to display desserts and favors and I was excited to find this one.   It's recently been used to display children's books at a baby shower and I can't wait to show those photos off soon!  The shelves are both adjustable and removable, so you could place a tall layered cake inside on a beautiful pedestal cake plate and still have room for a few more things!  I an imagine this being used to hold gifts or interesting seating cards, family photos for a memorial display and even late-night reception snacks like popcorn or donuts. 

Tuesday - 

I hadn't originally planned on the Joanna Farm Tables being a part of New Inventory Week - until I realized they weren't on my website!   These whitewashed farm tables are a dream and design all of my own - a table that feels a bit more feminine than the typical farm table, and bright enough to lighten any dark venue. I can really envision these as a head table or creative food display or alternated with standard banquet rounds for a creative room layout.   I'm so happy with how they look I'm considering a similar table for my house!

I always have brides asking if I have anything purple, and up until now, I haven't been able to quite get what they want.  But now - introducing Violet!  A great purple chair, perfect to pair with neutrals or jewel tones.  The velvet pile looks a bit different depending on how you brush it, so the mottled look of the chair is actually the pile being rubbed in different directions.  I've also got a different shade/style of purple chair (more berry purple colored) waiting on my to-be-upholstered pile, so I will hopefully have two different purple options here shortly!

Monday - 

The Layton Jute Rug is such a great basic piece because it is so versatile.  When I purchased it, I had envisioned it being used for outdoor lounge areas, but it has also been used for a ceremony floor covering and to layer with other rugs at a dance floor.  

The June Chair is one of my favorite recent acquisitions.   A lot of original vintage pieces have a more mustardy-yellow fabric, but this soft lemon yellow velvet is just the sweetest!   It made it's debut at Brunch with the Bride a few weeks ago and I love how the tiny bright pop of color stood out against the brick walls.  

New Inventory, Princess Diana and a Silent Observer of Presidential History

Last year I had several clients ask if I had a gold rental chair option.  I struggled with this request, because while I would love to accommodate every rental need for my clients, I also want to stay true to my goal of offering unique rentals.  One day as I was watching political news (did we do anything else in 2016?), I realized that I was looking at a chair that was different from anything else I had seen previously.   As I researched I found photos of White House dinners, dating back to the Kennedy administration, featuring this regal gold chair.

I hunted and searched and searched until I found a company that would offer what I wanted - a timeless gold chair that would withstand trends and still work under the demands of weekly weddings.  I ordered a sample and it sat in my kitchen for about three months while I thought about whether or not I wanted to take this step.

My final decision was that if any chair can last through eleven administrations, historic events through the decades, and host every kind of group on the planet while still maintaining it's elegance, then it was a chair I could happily incorporate into my inventory.  I currently have a sample of the Regal chair available to view at my warehouse, and they will be available for events soon.  Interested?  Just send me a note and we'll get started!

Just for fun - the Regal chair also shows up in pop culture!
