Rustic barn tables, modern industrial accent decor, copper arbour…these are just a few of the treasures you can find from RUS Vintage. Heather’s collection of vintage and one-of-a-kind rentals are to add personality to your wedding, event and even photo shoot!
What inspired you to start your business?
Working in event planning at the time, I felt there was a huge gap in the industry in Calgary for unique rental pieces. I wanted to give planners and brides a resource for bringing their creative ideas to life. I started following Found Vintage Rentals online, attended a workshop with Jeni Maus in California, and I was hooked!
What’s your favourite part about working in the wedding industry?
Knowing that our pieces will be a part of someone’s wedding memories for the rest of their lives. It is a day un-like any other and I feel so honored when clients like my finds enough to make us a part of it!
Share a piece of advice with our brides:
It sounds funny, but decide on one or two wedding traditions that you can nix from your own wedding day. It’s easy to get so caught up in wedding planning with what you think you ‘should do’ or ‘need to do’ and yet isn’t a match with who you are as a couple. De-stress by giving yourself permission to remove a couple of these things from your list of plans!
What’s a wedding trend that you’re totally in love with right now?
Warm metals – copper, brass and rose gold (my own wedding ring has rose gold in it!)
