Why we love being a wedding vendor

Being part of the wedding and event industry gives us the privilege of working with vendors and clients who make up a diverse community of backgrounds, races, religions, identities, ages, and genders. This has fostered a spirit of inclusiveness, creativeness, and camaraderie, so we love every opportunity to connect with folks. Our primary goal is to design and implement a glorious, joyful, and memorable occasion that embodies the spirit of the client. This is why we love being a wedding vendor.

Why we love vintage rentals

Each item in our inventory is a special treasure, surviving decades before finding its way onto our shelves and finding new purpose in your elopement design. We love it when a couple discovers their perfect piece to tie their aesthetic together, breaking away from bland and uniform tablescapes. As a creative and collector, Shelly is always making and finding surprising new elements for her always-expanding inventory of unique and well-preserved vintage rentals.

“I recently rented from Shelley at SVT for our wedding in the mountains of NC. We were going for a “vintage chic” vibe with an abundant amount of florals and she NAILED it. From the vintage glassware to plates and salad plates, our tablescapes were absolutely STUNNING. Not only was everything beautiful, but she made everything so easy. After the wedding, my husband and I were in a rush to get to our honeymoon and Shelley made it so easy for my family and friends to drop off the dishes at her office. If you are looking for beautiful vintage china and glassware as well as a fabulous rental experience, rent from Shelley at SVT! You will never regret it!”
