A Networking Night of Fun

Yesterday, Uniquely Chic Vintage Rentals closed up shop a little early for a night of networking and fun at the Rhode Island Wedding Group’s year end celebration and fundraiser event at the beautiful Hillside Country Club in Rehoboth, Massachusetts. 

After weeks of rain, we could not have asked for a better evening on the patio overlooking the lush green of the course. With a “Flamingle” luau theme, delicious treats, and lively tunes, everyone in attendance was having a good time in no time!

This event, which was open to the public, was an awesome opportunity for us to encounter so many other creative, motivated, and skilled professionals in the Southern New England wedding industry. Meeting wedding vendors equally passionate about sharing advice and discussing strategies for the future – all of us supporters of the Community over Competition ideology to collaborate and create the wedding celebration of every bride’s dreams – was encouraging!

Rhode Island Wedding Group membership consists of an exclusive and refined list of vendors, all with established and respected roles in the local wedding scene. While Uniquely Chic Vintage Rentals is not yet a member, we do hope to join the team someday! 

 

UCV: A Small Part of a Big Benefit

This spring, Uniquely Chic Vintage was SO excited when a very special client reached out to us asking for a custom living room set for a well-known charity event…. I guess you could even say we were “happy happy joy joy” about it!

Did you get the hint?!

That’s right, NICKELODEON and their design team from IDL Worldwide, hired UCV to create the custom seating needed to complete their Ren & Stimpy vignette at this year’s Housing WorksDesign on a Dime Benefit in New York City!

The annual event raises funds for New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS and homelessness, and 2017 was its 13th year bringing sponsors and designers together to create unique interior spaces, with all furniture and décor sold to raise money for the charity. This year’s grand total? Over 1.1 Million – wow!

Sure, UCV was only a tiny bit of the grand total and the whole show, but it feels good knowing our furniture contributed to such an amazing cause. Moreover, while we do appreciate all of our clients and all of their design styles, it is not everyday we redo an antique couch in SLIME green and silver pleather! The chair, too, is as individual as they come, with one-of-a-kind fabric placed oh-so-exactly across the frame. What a pair!

Recap: A Uniquely Chic Open House

Uniquely Chic Vintage hosted an Open House this April, and it was a great success! For the first time ever, I opened my custom furniture workshop to the public; everyone was able to explore where I create and transform home furnishings! 

As always, the Uniquely Chic Vintage Rentals showroom was available for viewing and my newly created rental arbors and backdrops were on display as well! It was truly an honor for myself and the team at Uniquely Chic Vintage to showcase our custom work, curated inventory, and passion for antiquities with the public!

Willene Altera, owner and designer of Perfectly Flawless Affairs, created a stunning tablescape complete with blooming flowers, sequin table cloth, and romantic candles. I have collaborated with Willene and Perfectly Flawless Affairs for years, they are seasoned, gifted professionals in creating lavish and gorgeous events for their clientele!

The two day event was perfectly captured by Kelly Auger of Stacy Smith Studios. She was so generous with her time and talent working with the constant flow of guests, snapping up great pictures of brides-to-be, wedding professionals, friends, family, and fun! Check out our event gallery below!

Thank you to everyone who joined me in celebrating the continued success and growth of Uniquely Chic Vintage and Uniquely Chic Vintage Rentals. My passion and motivation would not be possible without all of you! I love meeting new faces, and cannot express enough gratitude for all your respect and support!

Also, a huge thank you to my awesome team! I couldn’t have a successful open house without you; I have much appreciation for your hard work, patience, and dedication!

Looking forward to a successful 2017 – working with new clients, amazing talented creatives, and exciting wedding venues!
