I love wedding days. I love unique and fun brides. I love all things vintage and rustic and lovely (this obsession started in Chicago 17 years ago when I first walked into the Shabby Chic showroom on Rush Street and decided right then and there that I would be the kind of person who would have an oversized white slipcovered couch. I am still not that person. I do still love the look) So I think that the universe smiled when Jessica Strong popped into my studio last winter because she had just set her wedding date and I was referred as a potential day of coordinator.
We immediately hit it off, talked for an hour and Jessica told me all about her wedding vision and an idea she was tossing around for a vintage rental company. Jump ahead a few months and the company is A Vintage Affair Rental. And it. is. WONDERFUL. And taking the Colorado wedding industry pretty much by storm! I have been lucky enough to work with Jessica twice already (on Anna Be Five and on a vow renewal). Her inventory grows daily. Her love for events and styling is contagious. Her taste is pretty darn flawless. Here are just a few images from her website – seriously, gorgeous.
Now a little bit about Jessica from the site “While planning her own wedding, Jessica, became frustrated with the lack of resources available for brides wanting a vintage-inspired wedding without breaking the bank. Thus, she founded A Vintage Affair Rentals in March 2011. She has a bachelor’s degree in Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism from the University of Denver and a Master’s in Human Resources also from the University of Denver. She lives in Denver, with her fiancé and two chocolate labs (Charley and Gunner) She loves to travel, go to the mounatins, try new restaurants, plan parties, and of course hunting for vintage treasures!”
