November 5, 2013 – Pictures from Dia De Los Muertos at Suzie’s Farm!

Below are a few iPhone pictures from the Dia De Los Muertos celebration at Suzie’s Farm Saturday, November 2nd. We couldn’t wait for professional pictures to pop up to share. Everything and everyone looked AMAZING!! Attendees were dressed to the nines in their best fiesta frocks and face paint. There was fantastic authentic Mexican food and drink from local chefs, breweries, and wineries, and everyone was dancing to the live band until closing time.

The Suzie’s Farm staff did an incredible job putting this event together and raising a ton of money for Front Burner Fund and Kitchen Commandos. If you weren’t there you totally missed out! Mark your calendars for next year. There’s nothing quite like salsa dancing under the stars in the middle of a farm :)

Orange Marigolds

Lovely orange marigolds covered The Grove at Suzie’s Farm. Their staff, friends, and family did a great job on the altar and decor. They are also the nicest people ever!

October 31, 2013 – Happy Halloween from Lauren Sharon Vintage Rentals

Wishing everyone an especially scary Halloween today! I tried to find a spooky item from our inventory to post today and decided on this gate. Can’t you picture a bat infested haunted house behind it? Of course, put a bride and some flowers next to the same gate and it becomes shabby chic ;)

October 25, 2013 – Crystal Clear

Nothing completes a space quite like the perfect chandelier.  That philosophy can also be applied to weddings! Hang chandeliers above your altar, sweetheart table, dance floor, or just around your venue for subtle vintage ambiance. It’s all about the details.

Stop by the Lauren Sharon Vintage Rentals warehouse to see our assortment of lighting styles ranging from crystal-clad to rustic iron. We’re open seven days a week by appointment.

October 23, 2013 – We Put the “Table” in Farm to Table

We’ve been so busy shuffling these farm-style dining tables around San Diego for events we haven’t had a chance to talk about them (or even post them on the website!) until now.

Matching farm-style tables have been a fairly frequently requested item all summer – trend alert! Sure, we have tons of different vintage dining tables at the Lauren Sharon warehouse, but not everyone wants to mix and match. The brides have spoken, so we put aside a few days over the summer and built a handful of the farm tables you see below. We’ve been using them non-stop ever since!

Farm Table

Contact us if you’d like to rent one for your upcoming San Diego wedding or special event! And if there is a piece you want for your wedding but cant find anywhere, tell us! What we can’t find, we build ;)

October 21, 2013 – San Dieguito Park Ceremony

If you’re looking for a simple, beautiful outdoor venue for your San Diego wedding ceremony, San Dieguito County Park is a great choice. The greenery makes a gorgeous backdrop for pictures and the classic white gazebo is standing year-round. You can even bring in your own personal touches, such as the stumps flanking the aisle (provide by the bride) and the aisle doorway (provided by Lauren Sharon Vintage Rentals) brought in for lovely rustic wedding over the weekend:Rustic Doorway
