Chippy White Table // Vendor Love
What made you want to work in the wedding industry?
My dear mother Stella! She collected, hunted, borrowed and scavenged all the props and decorations for our fairy tale lake wedding. Seeing all the wonderful detail these special items added to my own wedding, made me want to do it for others. Stella is the one who decided to start the business one day, and when I saw where she was going with it, I jumped on the train! Its fun to create a magical event for someone through our rental items, just the way they’ve always dreamed it.
What’s your favorite part of weddings?
My favorite part of weddings is love. I love LOVE! I always cry when the bride walks down the isle. Love is powerful. When you get to witness the amazing connection between two people, that is special. That is amazing. I love emotions, good and bad, I think we get experience out of emotion. At weddings, you see the deepest emotion of them all, love.
What’s your favorite part of meeting new couples?
Talking! I love talking. I love human connection. Its great to meet with new couples and experience a small piece of their happiness and excitement. Its wonderful to see them at the beginning of their journey. Talking to new couples, in our case mostly the brides, and learning about their dreams and visions always gives us new inspiration.
What’s your favorite wedding show/movie, and why?
BRIDESMAIDS! That movie is hilarious. It relates to what every woman goes through when planning their wedding at an extreme level. Nothing goes as plans, everything is a disaster, horrible things happen, yet the wedding at the end still is wonderful and happens just the way it should have.
What is your inspiration for what you do?
We are so inspired by old things becoming new again. Great-great Aunt Clarisse’s serving platters being used at someones wedding… that is awesome! A settee left to the curb, found, reupholstered and used in a photo booth? Love it! We love seeing those old items that could have gotten lost in the world, coming back again and creating a special experience for someone else. Those old pieces hold history, they hold stories. Its magical! We are inspired by reusing and renewing. Rental items are almost like recycling! They get used over and over in different ways, always with a new story. Inspiration comes from the pieces; props, furniture etc that fall into our path.
When should brides be booking you?
We are so excited and thankful for the success of our new business adventure so far! We would love if brides would book with us 4-6 weeks before their event, so that we can make sure we have everything they wat to make their magical day just the way they dreamed it. But, we are also willing to work with the last minute brides. If they need a little something extra special to add to their event, we are more than happy to help.
