Hey there bride-to-be! Have you ever browsed an antique store or made an impromptu stop at a local garage sale hoping to stumble upon some antique treasure? Occasionally, I find a few of my favorites- crystal glassware, compote vases, or a silver tray with just the right amount of tarnish. While an antique shop or garage sale may not be the first place you'd think to find wedding decor, if you spent hours and hours browsing out you would probably come up with a decent collection. Now let's get real, you probably don't have time for that. You are working, planning your wedding and just busy with life stuff. Right? Plus, do you really want to invest in, say 50 brass candlesticks? While they would make for dreamy wedding centerpieces with florals and candlelight, what the heck are you going to do with 50 candlesticks after your big day... aside from being super prepared for a power outage? Well girlfriend, I've found a solution! Three words...

Have you looked at the aisle runner options out there? Most are made of flimsy, slippery dryer sheet like material. It's so hard to find a decent one that will look nice and not be a fall hazard. Check out this vintage rug aisle runner. The vibrant colors pop and add character to this whole wedding ceremony setting. QCV allows you to literally "rent the runway" for your wedding day. It's like a personal "red" carpet for you as you make the fairytale, strut down the aisle.
Need someone to help you pull all the details and decor ideas together? As a wedding designer, I offer design consultations and full design service packages. I have a knack for styling pieces to fit your theme and personal style. In my design process, I'll get to know you personally, your style, your love story, then I create a wedding design that is tailored to you. I'll help with the color scheme, sourcing the design pieces and put it all together the week of the wedding so you can just sit back, relax and enjoy your wedding day.
