Wedding in Malibu ~ With Touched by Time Vintage Rentals ....

 
Well hey Y'all .. I hope you had a great Labor Day Weekend ..
 
I spent Saturday from 3 a.m. in the morning ...(Yep I was an early Bird but no I didn't get a worm ...I got a crumb cake instead .. I think it was better than a worm ! )
 
With Kari of My Journey's Joy
 
And Nancy and Kelly of  Touched by Time Vintage Rentals...
 
Kari and I were asked to help with a Wedding that Nancy and Kelly were styling with their many Vintage props .. They needed help with such a big venue and Nancy recruited me to photograph the styling of the event ...I'm by no means a professional photographer just an amateur .. so I did my best getting photos for her and Kelly to use on their FB page and their website...
 
We headed out to Malibu which was about a 3 hour drive from where we all live ....it was a nice drive and thank goodness no traffic ... ..
 
 
We arrived at the Venue .. the trucks were unloaded and we all got to work styling ....
 
Over 20 different lounge areas of Vintage Furniture and vintage accessories ...
 
 
 
 
Kari and I started in this big tree .. hanging frames from the massive branches which lets  just say were very high .. we had to climb a 10 foot ladder to the top just to reach the nearest branch to tie a line to.  Kari did most of the ladder climbing and I did the cutting of the twine and holding the frames in place. I think it took us an hour and a half or so ... but the end result was well worth it ...

Later the Props were added .. along with the Brides Guest Book and Photos ..
 
 
 
 
This Venue.. had a lower and upper level that we styled .. a reception area for the guests to have
 
hors d'oeuvres  and drinks .. and the Dinner and Band area for guests to relax in vintage style and comfort ..

Nancy and Kelly Put together this charming Photo Booth designed from vintage doors ..for all the Wedding Guests to chalk messages in and then take pictures for the Bride and Groom ...

They set up this charming Table which Conrad .. ( nancy's husband) made and from what I understand is one of their most rented tables for the sweet heart table .. and once again it was the sweet heart table along with one of their vintage setees' .. and a vintage chandelier .. I was told the front of the table was going to be draped in a swag of fresh flowers .. I bet it was gorgeous ..

One of their newest backdrops which I think turned out just fabulous is this 16 foot long vintage door backdrop .. this wedding wanted it used as a divider to block the restrooms from the guest's view while dining .. I think it turned out just fabulous and gosh it could be used for so many other options at any occasion or celebration...

Well all in all I had a great Saturday ..because I spent it with friends ... and we did a good job getting the Lounges set up and we all worked really well together ..
 
We enjoyed a wonderful dinner on the way home at a place called Chipotle which I had never been to... Their Chicken Tacos were very refreshing and delicious ....
 
The day overall turned out Good ....
 
however I didn't beat the heat .. after a full day in the heat .. and temps in the high 90's .. my body wasn't too happy with me.. when we left I was fighting a migraine .. by the time I got home ..I felt ill .. and for 2 days after I was a sick gal .. Come to find out I ended up with Sun Poisoning ...
 
I started being sensitive to the sun and heat a few years back... Last year I had a bought where I almost passed out from being in the heat and sun too long .. and well this year doesn't seem to be proving any better ... so I'm just learning that my body has boundaries today that it didn't have before and I'm going to have to learn to work within those bounds ...
 
I'm doing better today .. thank goodness .. let me tell you, Sun Poisoning isn't for sissy's ...
 
 
Thanks to Nancy and Kelly for inviting me to be part of their styling team and for taking a chance on me photographing this event.

  1. Such a great idea--vintage rentals! I love it!! So appropriate in a garden setting, farm setting, vintage home setting,...
    I am in love with several of their pieces! I have seen the idea of frames hung from trees before and they used it for taking photographs of guests.
    I had never heard of sun poisoning, but have had that happen after too much sun and heat!! Now I know!
