It's Official!!!

Hey there!

I am sooo excited to officially announce our new Vintage Rentals company- Old & Borrowed by Timeless Trends Boutique! Please help us spread the word by liking and sharing our facebook page! We would GREATLY appreciate it! 

Check out our new page!

So you may be wondering what this is! Well, a few months back as I was planning my wedding I thought to myself, "What do other brides do with their left over decor?" I mean, I had a store to take it to, but it's not that simple for most brides. Not to mention- if I hadn't had access to all of our store inventory for furniture- I would have had to have collected that furniture myself! And where would I have kept it? I was really lucky to have access to the shop to borrow SO much great stuff. Not everyone is so lucky.

That is when I thought, "what if we rented to brides and photographers for their events!" This was they don't have to spend months collecting and storing items to then have to sell on ebay or other wedding recycling sites. It save you from the hassle! 

So...how it works. You would come into our shop to check out our inventory and decide on what you need. We would then draw up an estimate that would depend on the items you are renting (furniture, knick-knacks, vintage china, mason jars etc...), if you need delivery, where your event is,  and how long you need the items for. After we agree on a price for everything, those items would then be reserved until your date so they could only be rented, not sold until after your event.

If you need delivery or staging services as well we would come in and do that as well! 

It saves you money and TONS of time because let me tell you- most brides don't want to spend the 2 days before their event hauling all that furniture around and setting it up. It takes a lot of time! In fact, there are a lot of things that I wanted to do in the barn that we just didn't get to because there were other wedding tasks to be handled and a rehearsal dinner to get to. You can sit back and relax and not have to worry about a thing, including what to do with all of the stuff afterward.

I'm Married!


I'm finally getting around to posting about the Big Day- it's been a whirlwind ever since it happened! The day was beautiful- beautiful weather, beautiful friends and family, beautiful decor- it was everything I could have asked for. Working up to the day was exhausting but completely gratifying. I'm just sad it's over! 

People ask if I feel different. Nope! I feel the same- totally happy and insanely in love...just with a different last name. We call each other husband and wife and then joke that it feels fake. Like when you're engaged and you call each other that because you're so excited- well it still feels like that! Totally unreal because you've been waiting for it for so long that it couldn't possibly be here. But it feels good and just right. :)

Ok! Ok! Pictures you ask! Well I'm going to post a few and then redirect you to Levi, our amazing photographers blog because his post captures it all.



Thank you Aubrie, Kaite and Lindsay for these pics! :) We had a great time dancing the night away with our family and friends. I would like to thank all of our parents for their help- Kathy and Ernie gave us a beautiful rehearsal dinner that was absolutely perfect and that heartfelt slideshow that brought us all to tears! Thank you Dad for our AWESOME lemonade stand, photoboth back drop and all of your help preparing and cleaning up- it was a lot of work. We would also like to thank our bridal party for being there to support us and for your help during the process as well. My brothers and cousin for doing our readings- it meant a lot to us. And our sisters who were always there to be excited for us and lend a helping hand. :)

And lastly I'd like to thank my my mom for being there through the whole process making phone calls, collecting furniture and enough dishes for 90 people(!) and for keeping me on top of things including knowing all of the right questions to ask our vendors! You were a HUGE help and I couldn't have done it without you.

Check out Levi's page for to see pictures of the entire day! He's gonna try to get our wedding on some blogs which would be totally crazy awesomeness! Stay tuned for that and our Honeymoon blog post!

Happy Tuesday and thanks for reading :)
