Our Story

”A good friend knows all your best stories; a best friend has lived them with you.”

One might say our friendship is a bit vintage…it spans through the ages since the time we were girls. I can remember Rhonda, my lifesaver, chased a dog following the flower girl down the aisle of my own ranch wedding. So many years of sweet memories: shopping estate sales, picking barns, sharing family vacations & raising children on the same piece of property.  It was a natural process for us to start Forever Vintage. Rhonda is the ultimate curator of everything vintage and I love rustic elegance. So… we unknowingly spent the last 30 years accumulating and storing up the most incredible finds known to man. Who would have thought we would one day start a rental business? But the relentless encouragement from an incredible wedding planner (daughter Bre, in So Cal) soon became our inspiration. Before we could even open the doors, she had orders prepared for us. We now consider it an honor & blessing to share in one of the most sacred days of your life. We are passionate about our treasures and cannot wait to share them with you!

You might say I was born a hundred years too late. I love everything about the turn of the century: the ambiance, the decor, and the good old fashioned lifestyle. I am a country girl and share my life with the man of my dreams and four amazing children.  He can build anything I ask, so we spend our days refinishing & restoring old furniture, homes, and just about anything vintage. Our ranch is also a wedding venue so our lives are full of love, laughter and lots of brides.

Anyone that knows me knows that I am a lover of things that are weathered, worn, distressed and tattered. I am a photographer so I have always loved the beauty of vintage and antique items. I was born and raised in Southern California, but my husband and I now live in the Country. I have two beautiful daughters that I now have searching for vintage finds. I say “I love my life” all the time! I am blessed to be able to do what I love… hunt for unique vintage items and capture life through my lens.
