Cruisin' Together // Erica & Jon

We all know that May can be a little iffy when it comes to "wedding weather" but Saturday, May 3rd, couldn't have been a more perfect day for a Spring wedding at the beach. This date also marked Rustic Drift's first two weddings ever. What better way to kick off our very first year in business than a double-header.

One of our couples, Erica and Jon picked Brant Beach Yacht Club as their bayside venue. Our rental items for this wedding included our Schwinn Twinn Bicycle and our 1940 Navy Blue Cadillac. What says a LBI wedding better than a beach cruiser and a classic car with nautical colors? Yes, that's right.. nothing.

Clear top tent, walls up, 65 degrees at night.. the absolute most perfect weather for last weekend's Fall inspired cocktail party. . . #rusticdrift #winebarrels #winebarrelhightop #cocktailtable #cocktailparty #harvestparty #backyardparty #tentedevent #eventrentals #weddingrentals #rusticparty #falldecor

Happy 3rd Birthday baby girl. I'll never forget this birthday, when I fabric markered your birthday shirt and you thought it was the best thing ever. Stay sweet, stay kind, stay you 💕

Heirloom heaven. This weekend's event is going to be a goodie 🍂🌾🎃 . . #rusticdrift #falldecor #heirloompumpkins #pumpkins #october

I can't get enough of all the pretty little details on top of our table from Krissa + Bill's Wedding. This bride and groom went all out collecting vintage bottles and greeting cards to use in their tabletop decor for over a year. And not just our sweetheart table. Every table was this perfect. Totally obsessed. This wedding was really incredible.
