When planning an event, wedding, or photo shoot, we tend to need cool and odd objects for decoration. But buying something you would only use once seems expensive, let alone trying to find whatever it is you’re looking for in the first place. Why not just rent it from Found Vintage!
Lets say for your next event, you specifically want a Watson Brown Leather Sofa, placed out in the woods, next to a stocked 1930s mini bar, surrounded by vintage bowling memorabilia; some might think you’re dreaming, or just plain crazy. But, more likely, you’re interested in renting from Found Vintage. They have it all. Seriously! Found Vintage has some of the coolest, one-of-a-kind furniture pieces and knickknacks you could ever rent. The owner, Jeni Maus, will rent you anything you need for your next wedding, photo shoot, company event, or to live out one of those odd dreams you keep having.

The owners (Josh and Diana), and they’re constantly growing accumulation of gems, ooze with personality and style. They sort of have this….they kind of specialize in—I’ll just let them explain it: “Anthropologie-esque styling meets the most insane stash of heirloom china and ridiculously unique tabletop accessories you’ve ever seen.”

DJ Smiles Davis is one of Los Angeles best wedding DJ’s!
With her gentle smile and her broad selection of music, DJ Smiles Davis is one of the smoothest DJ around. When she drops the needle on her vinyl record collection, she fills the dance floor with young and old alike. We love her dedication to old vinyl too; the pleasure of shaking your hips to a nice warm record doesn’t even compare to the flat, compressed sound of the MP3s used by most Los Angeles wedding DJ’s. Her music is always evolving and adapting to the atmosphere of her company and she knows just how to get you moving.
You can catch her spinning all over LA but the real treat is having her DJ your own event: www.djsmilesdavis.com

Marin is just as beautiful as her eye… Wait. That didn’t come out right. What I meant to say is she’s a beautiful woman and she takes beautiful photos! (Both eyes work just fine.)
Marin Rosche has quickly become one of our favorite Los Angeles wedding photographers. She’s talented, modest, great sense of humor, and so fun to work with. Her photography speaks for itself really.
Here’s Marin Rosche in her own words: “To be honest, I’m not much of one for talking about myself, but I am much obliged to reveal a few little tidbits. I’m from San Diego, and will one day own a house in Santa Barbara, or Costa Rica, or even better, both! I love bike rides with my husband and our daughter, errr, dog, Sydney. I always hope for colder weather. I lived in Italy for five months and can’t wait to go back. Led Zeppelin will always hold a very special place in my heart. And I love popcorn. We can’t forget that.”
Anyone who holds Led Zeppelin in their heart has room in ours. The last event we did with Marin was Erin and Dan’s beautiful country wedding at the Paramount Ranch, which is LINKED HERE.

The Mountain Mermaid Inn is an incognito Los Angeles wedding location gem.
Tucked away in Topanga Canyon, The Mountain Mermaid Inn began its life as a quaint country club… became the home of gangster Mickey Cohen… in the 1950’s it was transformed itself into an underground gay speakeasy… subsequently it was used as an American Legion hall, a school, a concert hall, and now this historic retreat is a private oasis owned by Bill Buerge. Bill has done a wonderful job preserving this magnificent building and the gardens that surround it. (Visit their website to see more photos of the grounds www.themountainmermaid.com)
Over the years, Eco Caters, Los Angeles’s organic catering company, has serviced many charming weddings at TheMountain Mermaid Inn. The Spanish Colonial architecture, combined with its rich history, ensures a personal and unparalleled experience each and every time. I’m not one to easily believe in the supernatural, but once the sun goes down, you can feel the presence of happy drunken sailors joining in on the party as the night unfolds. They ensure an evening of free flowing drinks and a full dance floor. Eco Caters highly recommends you check them out! The Mountain Mermaid Inn
We wanted to share this heartwarming wedding video by wedding videographer Daniel Chae that shows off a little Mermaid flair. It rained the day of the wedding so you truly don’t get to see how beautiful the gardens are the surround the house.
