What's Old Is New
Something Old, Something New Bridal Showcase Details
Last night, the normally casually cool interior of NoDa restaurant and brewery Heist was transformed into a well-curated exhibition of hip handmade and vintage wedding works of art fitting of its vibrant neighborhood. From mismatched china pattern place settings by by Old South Vintage Rentals to dainty hand-beaded hair combs by Whitney Alyssa, the two-floor spread was most certainly a sight to be seen. An habitual level-headed, objective journalist in search of her latest story, between the bewitching vendor spreads and a blushing bride to-be best friend by my side, I simply couldn't help but catch a momentary wedding bug. So, in case you missed out on the evening, I'm sharing a few of my favorite details I snapped while at the Vintage Charlotte Something Old, Something New Bridal Showcase.

Birds of A Feather
From mismatched chairs to an array of china patterns, this effortlessly romantic tablescape with flowers by New Creations Flower Co. couldn't have been prettier.
Pretty Little Thing
With refashioned vintage jewels, beautiful bridal sashes and beaded floral haircombs now in her collection mix, Hayden Olivia's Whitney Parker (label: Whitney Alyssa) has broadened her bridal horizons to the max, and we're head over heels.
Hot Off The Press
Vintage Concord's cheeky collection of letterpress goods most certainly caught my eye. Plus their mention of interactive classes available was the icing on the cake.
Tie The Knot
A self-confessed connoisuer of new menswear brands, you can imagine my delight after stumbling upon this dapper collection of neckwear, not to mention stunning leather suspenders. Looks like I'll be hitting up The Cordial Churchman before my next editorial shoot.
Delicate beaded clutches, tiny button earrings and various other vintage bridal confections by Krystynas Treasures felt perfectly nostalgic for any bride looking to fulfill her 'something old' wedding tradition.
