Today I have something a little different to share – part vendor spotlight, part inspiration, and part fashion shoot! IYQ Photography submitted this collaborative photoshoot that she did with a new vintage rental company based in Virginia, Bluebirds Garage: Vintage Rentals and Concept Styling.

How adorable is the owner, Mary!?:

More from Kimie (the photographer):

Bluebirds Garage: Vintage Rentals and Concept Styling is a brand new vendor out of Va Beach. I was so excited to work with her- really excited that VA finally has a legit rental company. While she doesn’t market herself to weddings only, she’s a great resource to couples or planners of weddings that want something fun, kitschy, offbeat, rustic, vintage- her pieces are one of a kind and as a business woman she is a gem. This was her debut shoot, we call it ‘Last Days of Summer’.

From Mary:

Bluebird’s Garage is your décor and prop resource supplying vintage pieces for your party, wedding, photo shoot, or event! From flea market finds to hand me down antiques, we collect pieces that speak to you, the camera, and your guests. Come in, look around and do a little digging. Surely you’ll find something you love.

 Lover of vintage artifacts, anything with rust and Van Morrison, owner Mary Kaufman is a type of new-age flower child for this decade. Collecting various antique items for years, Mary started Bluebird’s Garage with the idea of sharing her most valued pieces and now she’s changing the way people think about décor rentals.  She has an eye for mixing what seem to most people as opposites; Modern and antique, clean and dirty, romantic and industrial. Focused on adding touches of vintage and retro elements to any wedding or event, Mary cannot wait to dive into your project by offering her collection of one-of-a-kind pieces.

So whether you are a bride, photographer, event planner, or just someone who’s looking for a unique spin on their party, Bluebird’s Garage is here to work with you in making your event unforgettable.

What I love about the industry is that I can give my wandering eye of creativity free reign and there are clients that exist willing to let me water- color all over their walls, to put it metaphorically. Mixing and matching, creating a kind of orchestra of different elements that embody who they are or who they are trying to be in that moment.





















Awesome images, awesome fashion sense, and awesome vendor – what more could you ask for?! I think I might ask Mary to be my personal shopper!

Happy Friday and be sure to check our Blue Bird Garage ~ Virginia Vintage Rentals for any of your vintage rental needs! A special thanks again to IYQ Photography for sharing her images!
