Rustic Drift Launch Party

On December 7th we had the awesome opportunity to host our very own VIP Launch Party @ Black-Eyed Susans in Harvey Cedars, NJ. Our good friends and co-owners Ashley Pellegrino and Chris Sanchez were kind enough to open their doors in the off-season to help host our event. We invited local wedding professionals, vendors and venues to attend our launch party, snack on some delicious hors d'oeuvres, drink some craft beers, listening to the acoustic rhythms of local musician, Ryan Zimmerman and take a gander at the rental items we would be offering for the 2014 season. Some items we featured included our 10’ and 5’ farm tables, mismatched china, wine barrel high tops, wine barrel cooler, reclaimed lumber bar cart, ice cream cart and both our Edison and lantern string lights. We packed the house and received amazing feedback and recognition from the peers among us in the industry. We couldn’t be happier with the turn out, not to mention the wonderful write up we received from the Sandpaper.

As we broke down the event the next day we were hit with the very first (of what seems like 200+) snowstorm of the season. Moving everything in a couple inches of powder was no easy feat but after the night before nothing could break our spirit. We want to thank all of our attendees. The support from the LBI community, our family and friends has been commendable beyond our belief.

Friday introductions.. this is a thing right? We are Megan + Joel, the coffee loving, cheap wine drinking, Caribbean dreaming, old school Reggae listening, ocean inspired Founders + Owners of Rustic Drift. We started this company a little over three years ago with the goal of creating a business that combines our strengths and talents, provides some flexibility for our family and leaves us with a career that is both meaningful and rewarding. Starting a family and a business simultaneously has been quite challenging as both our children and work need constant attention. The truth is we're still learning how to be the best parents for our children, the best leaders for our business and the best spouses for each other. Thanks for following along! "What we learn with pleasure we never forget." - Alfred Mercier 📷 by @idaliaphotography

It's been quite the project for @rusticdrift_joel. 22 farm tables and one matching sweetheart table finally completed.

Spent the weekend at the dreamiest little beach cottage with a bunch of my closest friends. Feeling recharged but also very behind on emails + paperwork 🙄The sign on the wall couldn't be more fitting. #cestlavie #staycation #beachcottage #beachhouse #vacationhouse
