Rhoda and Anna from Loot Vintage Rentals ...
Why do you do what you do? We were both born into families that relish trinkets from the past and find value in a good garage sale. We always love to find objects that have a little wear and tell a story. We have a passion for saving these pieces from ruin and giving them a new life while they still wear the age of their past. Each piece we share through Loot is an extension of our love for the art of antique collecting and junking combined. (That, and we're trying to channel our hoarding tendencies into something a little more lucrative).
What should brides/grooms/curious seekers know about you? We LOVE what we do and we think it shows in our work. We feel the same excitement the bride and groom do each and every time they walk into our studio for the first time and start picking out pieces. We go above and beyond to make our clients happy with our custom touches and styling services. Also, Anna makes a mean Bloody Mary and Rhoda can hammer out a awesome garland while cooking dinner and folding laundry.
What makes a wedding super rad to you? When a couple does what is right for them. They have their own style and want to convey it in every aspect of their wedding. This approach leads to fresh ideas and out-of-the-box thinking, which we love! And good food.
Name one thing about a wedding that you would like to see changed. More Dancing!
