About

Forest Hall Styled Shoot - Arika Jordan Photography-252

Pop the Champagne is a Raleigh NC based event rentals company who’s aim is to offer couples unique and custom rental options that allow them to express themselves and their individuality through a combination of statement pieces and intimate details.  The majority of rental businesses source popular and on trend items to rent out to brides so that they can have their exact Pinterest inspired weddings. What we do is help our couples curate a more meaningful decorative aesthetic with statement pieces that are inspired but also, and most importantly, personalized. I want our couples to know that we listen to their personal story when building and choosing pieces that will best represent you and the beautiful ideas you have. We encourage our couples to think outside the box when looking for meaning and to be courageous in choosing exactly what they want for their day.

We are also firm believers in shopping local and to that end we work with local small businesses to create many of our arches and larger pieces. Our aim is to source as many items as possible from those within our community for both a unique selection and a boost for our local business owners.

Meet the Owner: Elizabeth Vest

I have always had a passion for creating things and finding meaning in small moments so after enjoying our first few years in the event planning business I wanted to branch out and find a way to turn that passion into something I could offer brides more specifically. Fiber arts have been the latest favorite medium for creation and in my traditional go big or go home style I decided to create custom Looms as a unique and customizable wedding backdrop. After falling in love with these and building our copper arches I decided to take the rentals onto a completely custom path in order to build and rent things made by hand and lovingly sourced that sparked that same kind of passion in our clients. I love sitting down with a bride, seeing the dream she has for her wedding, and planning out all the ways we can make that dream a reality. Each piece, no matter how small, brings us one step closer to creating someone’s Best Day Ever.

So while we will continue to rent all of the items in our current inventory, we will be focusing on custom orders going forward and limiting our project numbers to save our best creative juices for the couples we serve.

When not working on events, you can find me curled up at home with my husband and three adorable kitties. I love a great glass of wine and a night of board games. We also love to travel and often take time off from our hectic schedules to relax on the Outer Banks with family and friends.
