I am so excited to share this weeks Q&A interview with y'all!
As most of you know, I am doing a interview/blog series on wedding vendors in the Dallas and Fort Worth areas.
I am elated to share with you this weeks featured wedding vendor, Gold Rust Vintage Rental Company!
Gold Dust is a family owned business that provides all types of gorgeous furniture pieces and vintage nicknacks for any type of occasion. Weddings, birthdays, parties, and photo shoots are just a few examples.
Walking into the Gold Dust warehouse was like walking into a fairy tale! They rent any thing from portable bars, settees, chairs, tables, candle sticks, and so much more! Their warehouse is filled to the brim with beautiful inventory to make your wedding day or event look even better than you imagined!
Meeting the Gold Dust Dolls was an absolute pleasure! They are sweet, sassy, kindhearted and family centered, my favorite kind of people!
So, lets meet the girls behind the business!
THE GOLD DUST SISTERS
Gold Dust is made up of two sisters who make a pretty kick butt team! Seeing their family dynamic work in their business is absolutely amazing and inspiring.
We sat on this adorable settee for a good hour just talking about life, business and everything in between. These thoughtful women are hard working, professional yet relatable moms who rock at being both lady bosses and super moms.
Anyone who rents from Gold Dust will walk away feeling energized, excited about their event and feeling like they made a new friend. That's how good Gold Dust's services are!
Let's get to know the girls a little more!
Megan is the oldest of the Gold Dust sisters and she is truly full of life and one of the funniest and sweetest people you will ever meet! Something that I truly admire about Megan is her dedication to her family and her work. It's not easy being a mom and business owner but this girl does it with such grace and ease!
Rachel is the middle sister of the Gold Dust girls, and just like Megan she possesses the same funny bone and genuine heart. Something that I love about Rachel is her eye for design. Rachel is the one who came up with this adorable settee and side table set up in these images and it's absolutely to die for! She can definitely help you pick just the right pieces to make your event sparkle!
Ellen Ashton: Why did you start your business?
Gold Dust Girls: We started Gold Dust on a whim after getting a gentle nudge from one of our favorite planners, Lucia Bitnar. Rachel’s father-in-law built and designed Aristide in Mansfield and we ran the business for 3 years so we had already been in the industry before Gold Dust was created. We have always been antiquers with a knack for parties and southern hospitality and realized there was a need for vintage rentals and styling.
Ellen Ashton: How did your first client find you?
Gold Dust Girls: Since we were already in the industry we had several “friendors” that were very helpful in referring Gold Dust and spreading the word. Joining several organizations and being from the metroplex also helped us grow.
Ellen Ashton: Do you service Dallas, Fort Worth or Both?
Gold Dust Girls: Gold Dust will travel around like the Clampetts to anywhere your heart desires!
Ellen Ashton: What is your favorite 2016 trend?
Gold Dust Girls: We love how you can mix vintage into so many looks and that creating a juxtaposition of glam, industrial, modern and elegant is totally perfect!
Ellen Ashton: What is your favorite color palette for weddings this year?
Gold Dust Girls: All day, every day, anything with Gold is going to make our hearts flutter! It’s basically a neutral that gives a huge impact and can go modern but will always have a timeless look.
Ellen Ashton: If you had to pick a celebrity to be stranded on an island with, who would you pick and why?
Rachel: well how hypothetical is this, am I married? If no then Ryan Gosling if I am then someone scrappy like Chelsea Handler
Megan: Reese Witherspoon—she just seems so fun! But really I need to think about it!
Ellen Ashton: Which Real Housewife show is your favorite?
Gold Dust Girls: Do we have to choose? We are such suckers for every single one—although Dallas better step up their game. Squad Goal: Lisa Vanderpump’s closet!
Ellen Ashton: Wine or Ice Cream
Gold Dust Girls: Hands down wine—unless we drank too much wine and we can only handle ice cream!
