Down to Business…
How did you get your start in the wedding industry?
I got my start in the industry by researching specialty rental companies for my own wedding and realizing there were NONE. I then realized there was a great need for a company like ours and thus, Old South Vintage Rentals {OSVR} was born!

You have taken your amazing pieces all over the Carolinas & beyond. What’s your favorite place to style a wedding or event? And do you have a dream venue/destination?
My favorite venue to bring our rentals to would probably have to be any of the Old Edwards properties in Highlands. Weddings and events just seem to come ALIVE up there! Truthfully, any time we have the opportunity to furnish a space with our unique pieces, MY dreams become fulfilled. The whole reason I started OSVR was to bring something so incredibly different to the Carolina wedding market. I definitely think we’ve been successful at doing so!

What’s one thing you wish couples knew about Old South Vintage Rentals?
I wish couples knew that the sky’s the limit with us! Tell me your vision, let’s make it a reality. You want two of those bars? Let’s do it! You want a two hundred of THOSE chairs? We can make it happen! While we are a boutique company, we CAN and WILL make every attempt to accommodate all requests. We may be small, but we’re not as small as you might think!

Not only are you in the industry, but you’re also a married gal and gone through the planning process. What piece of advice would you love to offer newly engaged couples?
I would advise newly engaged couples to hire the best and most recommended vendors. Save bargain shopping for something other than your wedding.

For Kicks…
When you’re not in the warehouse or on the hunt for new pieces, what can we find you doing?
When I’m not hunting for new pieces or in the warehouse, you can usually find me drinking red wine, reading a book, or watching British dramas. And on Sunday, you are sure to find me at Downton. Regardless, I start every morning with a cup of coffee and a killer workout.

Dream vacation destination?
I absolutely adored Hawaii and can’t wait to go back! Aloha!


It’s karaoke night. What’s your go-to song?
On Karaoke night you might find me singing, “Ice, Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice or “Fancy” by Reba McEntire.


Open Mic…{anything you’d like to add?}
Nothing makes my heart feel like it’s going to burst more than seeing our pieces fulfill a brides vision for her special day! I am so honored and grateful to offer such a curated collection to the southeast wedding & event market
