Real Wedding: Ali & Ryan

We first met Ali and Ryan shortly after we moved into our first studio in 2016! They were very early clients and one of the first to take one look at our inventory and social media presence and trust us implicitly to decorate their wedding! We connected with them from the first moment they sat down with us and tot his day I am so grateful they took a chance on us entrusting us with SO MUCH of their wedding day.

They had to deal with a last minute venue change but took everything in stride with such joy and ease, and were a delight to serve! They had seen a styled shoot we'd done and were heavily influenced by the decor, choosing our wood farm tables and vintage folding chairs, our handmade cement candle holders and copper pipe arbor and seating chart holders among many other details from our collection. Their Mother's Day wedding  was our first of many weddings since at local venue Top of the Market, an industrial dream in downtown Dayton, OH! We love working at this venue and it perfectly complements our collection.

They brought in delicious donuts from local favorite Bill's Donuts for dessert, Ali and her mom made their own cake. Graphic designer Ali designed all the stationery and print materials, and even hand lettered a banner and every guest's name onto a smooth stone for their place cards (over 200!) Enjoy these photos by their wonderful photographer Chloe Luka!

Welcome and hello!

Hello friends!

We are Mari & Kyle, the founders of Something Old Dayton, a boutique rental company here in Dayton, Ohio offering vintage, modern and eclectic treasures for weddings, events and photo shoots! 

Something Old was a just dream for us in 2015, when a seed was planted in our hearts for a creative venture we could pursue as a family. Mari was greatly pregnant with our second child, Wyatt, and had very little interest in starting a business at the time, but Kyle is a dreamer and an entrepreneur at heart and got the ball rolling while we welcomed Wyatt into the world in December of 2015. We decorated our first event in March 2016, Mari was reacquainted with her love of styling and decorating and we flung ourselves into our baby business with both fear and joy.

Antique lovers both of us, we slowly began to fill our basement with treasures to share with future brides and grooms here in south central Ohio. We quickly outgrew our home for storage and began looking for additional space where we could meet clients, and that's when we found our now warehouse studio just a half mile away from our home at the time!  Things have snowballed in since we moved in and now our studio is in high demand with local photographers, videographers and those looking for unique spaces to host private parties. We are growing and expanding rapidly and just moved our collection into a full warehouse earlier this year! We're so excited for you to join us on our journey and hope you will sign up for our mailing list, come out to an open house or just hop into our inbox to say hi!
