Featured Creative: Sarah from A LA CRATE

When thinking of amazing creatives who needed to be featured, Sarah came to mind. I have worked with her on a gorgeous styled shoot and boy, they didn’t disappoint. From incredible vintage pieces to custom chalkboards – A LA CRATE has all of your wedding needs covered and the best part is that you get to rent and return for a much lovelier price tag than purchasing yourself. They are a custom, found, and reclaimed event rental warehouse specializing in wedding rentals, photo props, party decor and accessories to complete your event or design project with style. From mason jars to flatware, frames to fixtures, and all things in between, these two have hand picked so many gorgeous accessories sure to perfect your wedding day decor. With an inventory that will make you swoon and personality that makes you love them – here they are: Jeff and Sarah from A LA CRATE

Name: Sarah from A LA CRATE
Business: A LA CRATE Vintage Rentals 

Location: Monona, Wisconsin 

Why you love your job:  For infinite reasons. Top of my list is working with my incredible husband, Jeff. Don’t get me wrong, we have had our moments, but our blend of strengths play so well together at home and at work. I’m one lucky girl! 

 I also love my job because I am actively using my hands day in and day out. I majored in fine arts in college and always thought it was a curse that I enjoyed such a variety of media: painting, drawing, textiles, wood working, etc. I so envied other art students who had one focused area of interest. A LA CRATE brings all of these elements together for me! I’m super grateful for that. 
Last but not least, is how A LA CRATE has made deeper connections with our friends, family and community. Everyone from my Dad, Grandpa, Aunts and even neighbors have been so supportive. Hunting for goods is fun on your own, but hunting with others is even better!

Fun fact about you: I’ve been told my laugh sounds like a machine gun. 

Three trends you are loving: 

1. Gold. Always been a lover.

2. Chalkboards. With my art/design background, it’s great bridging the gap between my past and current life!

3. Canvas/Drop Cloth. Great texture, durability and neutral base for anything!

Advice for brides:  “Only if you love it.” I grew up surrounded by a lot of Italian women who were/are incredible shoppers. My aunts always said you should buy something, “Only if you love it.” It’s a great piece of advice for everyday life/decisions, but also wedding planning. I always make sure our customers love what they are choosing. If they only “really like it” we keep working on mock ups and brainstorming ideas!
