{debut} arbors & metal architecture

Hey y’all!

We are excited to announce we are now offering gorgeous metal arbors & we have even included several gorgeous backdrops, as well! We often get asked for arbors, so when I found such stunning pieces such as these, I knew it was time to create a new collection catering exclusively to wedding ceremonies.

These pieces are meant to be fully dressed in an abundance of flowers or even chandeliers and drapery, as seen in the inspiration below…

boldly, passionately, & authentically

Hey y’all!

It’s February – the month of love & it has me thinking about just how much I love what we do as a couple and & as a business. Every minute of every day we boldly, passionately, & authentically operate {dream big, scour every antique infested place, answer calls & emails, update our website, keep up the books, maintain & upkeep inventory & all that goes with it} OSVR. Our pieces reflect our passion to bring something so incredibly and refreshingly different to the Carolina rental market. We love being a part of the “marriage” {not “wedding”–we’re MORE than that} industry & knowing that we have a slight hand in cultivating detail saturated, lovingly planned, & well curated events. Most importantly — we love doing all of this TOGETHER. There really is something magical about being a husband & wife team building a dream business, life, & future with one another.

{debut} couture collection

Hey y’all!

Our couture collection can be best described as a being game changer.

{game changer as defined by Merriam-Webster | a newly introduced element or factor that changes an existing situation or activity in a significant way}

Seriously — you won’t find these pieces from any other rental company around — & we’re proud of that. We have partnered with some pretty fabulous people to make sure our couture collection continues to grow, impress, and stays Old South exclusive. {my heart is so happy. here’s to growth!}

We’ve received countless praises and bookings from many planners and designers across the Carolinas over these highly sought after European inspired pieces. We’re proud to offer our clients this wide assortment of upper echelon, timeless lounge furniture. Please welcome the couture collection to the OSVR family!

The collection can also be viewed on the website.

JEEPers {it’s 2015}

Happy New Year, y’all!

Because I love to cook {& eat}, 2014 can be best described as being quite a flavorful dish – consisting primarily of 25 {stunning} weddings, a handful of photo shoots, showers, and conferences, and a pinch of styled shoots & magazine features. It was quite the year & we were on the road for most of it– I RELISHed in every second {hehe}. Just thinking about how this year is going to top last year TEN fold — makes me SUPER giddy! Y’all have no idea what we have in store, but I can guarantee your going to LOVE every bit of it!

I definitely think I’m a lucky girl to get to experience every OSVR moment with my sweet husband. We are both thankful for our clients– past, present, & future. As we do every year, we like to send out cards to let our clients and vendor friends know how much we appreciate them & to wish them well throughout the year. I had Lauren Harring of Peaches & Ink create our {gorgeous} custom cards. Here’s a few images from our shoot & I know your going to love them {any true southerner would, let’s be honest}. Our adorable dog, Penny, was a total photo bomber– she wanted to be in every shot. Every. single. shot. Penny absolutely loved Christi, our photographer for the shoot and owner of Christi Falls Photography. Christi is super sweet & uber talented {oh yeah, and a dog whisperer} and I couldn’t be more thankful for the images she captured for us. Our 1973 Jeep CJ-5 was the real star of the show and was the main inspiration for our “JEEPers!” theme. And don’t y’all know we took her four wheelin’ after the shoot, too – because what’s the point in having a Jeep if your not willing to get a little mud on the tires?

{honey & time}

Hey y’all!

This will be a short and sweet post, but what I’m about to tell you is blog worthy.

image by Bailey Smith Photography, honey favors by Muddy Mile Farm

We know we have so many wonderful things and we are constantly flattered by the sweet words and compliments we get on our exclusive collection. We are a boutique rental company and we pride ourselves on providing the ultimate boutique experience for our clients. We are a mom & pop/husband & wife team providing a personalized and intimate relationship with each and every one of our clients. With that being said, we only do a limited amount of weddings. Unlike larger rental companies, we don’t do hundreds of events per week– and we never want to. Take my advice and book with us as early as possible. While we don’t book anything over a year out, when you initially contact us be ready to reserve the items you want for your special day. If you wait until the last minute, it may be too late. The saying, “If you’ve got the money, honey, I’ve got the time”, just isn’t how Old South operates {which is why we’re so darn amazing, in my humble opinion}.
