Milk and Honey Collective

Milk and Honey Collective was originated when 3 Vendors became best friends and decided to grow their services as a collective group. After years of working independently in different realms of the wedding and special events world, we find that collaborating, connecting, and sharing ideas are the things that bring us the most joy.

We love weddings -- the design, the careful attention to detail, the joy and excitement of a fresh new start. The only thing we love more is building relationships [ within our industry and beyond ].

​​That's where MILK + HONEY was born -- built from a desire to bring our obsession with all things design together with our heart for people.

​We're based in the mountains and foothills of western North Carolina. We offer services in elopements, micro-weddings, seasonal photography setups, a collection of vendors on display at our location, event design, brand development, content strategy, marketing, vendor selection/concierge service, and more.

Meet Each of the Three Ladies of M&H:


Kelly Williams is the Boss Lady that heads up this collaborative effort and is the owner/operator of A Bushel and A Peck Vintage Rentals. Her original business is still booming and the inventory and showroom is located at the Milk and Honey Location. A Bushel and A Peck Vintage Rentals has been offering vintage rentals, design and more for over 6 years in the North Carolina Foothills.

Jessica Isaacs is the owner/operator of Jessica Isaacs Creative that offers custom stationery suites, freelance writing, product development and branding, website

Hayley Deal is the owner/operator of Vintage Chic Rentals and Design and Vertie Anne Antiques. She has such passion and the best eye for design that really reflects who her clients are in their weddings and events. Vintage Chic Rentals and Designs has been in business since 2016 and is still her primary love/business. Vintage Chic Rentals is currently located in Newton, NC, but hopefully be at the Milk and Collective space in the late fall. (fingers crossed).

The Space:

Milk and Honey Collective is located in the Old Ellis Hosiery Mill in Hickory, NC. The location houses the inventory of A Bushel and A Peck Vintage Rentals, a showroom, a small event space that can also be used for photography and a Collection of Our Curated and Trusted Vendors on Display (think of it as a Bridal Show that are on display year round and you can pickup their information).

Milk and Honey Collective space boasts White Painted Brick Walls, Aged Refinished Hard Wood Floors, and a Clean Industrial Feel!

Elopements and Intimate Weddings:

With White Brick Walls and Wood Floors we are able to bring your vision to life.

We have worked with some of our absolute favorite vendors to come up with (almost) all inclusive options for elopements, micro-weddings and events.
