Salt Lake Pickin’

We’re like American Pickers, except we don’t sell the things we find for ridiculously obscene amounts! Instead we rent them out to you lovely people for ridiculously reasonable rates haha! Anyways, this last weekend we went up to Salt Lake City for a wedding/picking trip. By we I mean me, my sister Shannon, and my amazing husband! Shannon won’t ever let me take a picture of her so here is Spence and I excited for our road trip!

So we got into Salt Lake late Friday night and immediately split up. Spence went and stayed with his parents so he could search the city for vintage treasures and my sister and I headed to a hotel to get ready for Saturday’s wedding.

Saturday morning we all got up and got busy! The wedding on Saturday was absolutely gorgeous with the ceremony at the Salt Lake Temple and the reception in Heber. I mean just look at this photo, I’m pretty sure it speaks for itself!

Obviously the temple was gorgeous but if you have ever been to Heber you would know that it is equally gorgeous! We took pictures all over the valley but there was one spot in particular I just loved, the railroad tracks! The bride and groom used our vintage suitcases in their photo shoot and it fit so perfectly with those tracks. What we didn’t know though, was an actual train still uses those tracks lol. So here we are taking pics and all of a sudden we hear CHOO CHOO! We all take off running trying to grab suitcases, camera bags, the bride’s train, etc and here comes this train barreling down the tracks. Well we got out of the way in time and there was just enough time for me to snap a pic of the happy couple in front of the train as it passed by.

Another amazing Instagram photo by me 🙂

Isn’t that just something else?! It seriously looks like they are from the 1930’s and they’re about to hop on the train and go cross country for their honeymoon! Seriously, I cannot believe how lucky we got to be able to get this shot. So cool and I cannot wait to see the rest of the professional photos! Congrats Taylor & Cody!

While Shannon and I were dodging trains, Spencer and his dad were busy filling the trailer with awesome vintage chairs, couches, an old vanity and some church pews! Yep, that’s right, church pews! You know you want to rent them 🙂 I can’t wait to get these babies stained and ready for their inventory photo shoot. Oh and when I say Spencer and his dad were busy, I mean it! Just look how full they packed the truck and trailer…

Instagram!

Yeah, the truck is so full that we even had to put our suitcases on the trailer so that we would have room to sit inside. We’re crazy, I know 🙂 Make sure to follow us on Facebook to keep up with our adventures and check out our website to see all of our inventory as we update the pictures. We have lots of inventory that we haven’t put up yet so if you’re looking for something specific, contact us! Hope you all enjoyed reading about our trip as much as we enjoyed taking it!
