- Our wedding was a Garden party wedding.
- We had all sorts of vintage and unique items supplied by Vermont Vintage Rentals. We had a very cool quilt rack turned shelves that became our glass holder. We had a very cool sink that we used to put ice in to cool our wine. Great glasses, dish ware, silverware, really everything we needed. We also had matching white tablecloths with lace detailing. What items we did buy and pay for, Joanne was helpful enough to arrange in a pleasing manner.
- Everything was on site before I arrived and I barely had to lift a finger in arranging the aesthetic. I was happy to have Joanne around during my wedding and found both she and her family to be extremely helpful. Our wedding was very DIY and their help was invaluable.
- I loved the old sink we used as well as the galvanized watering cans and buckets we used for flowers. They were some of my favorite items. We did have some great picture frames up as well.

Review: Do Not Use This Company

- How did staff meet your personal wedding style needs? I was looking through your vendor information and saw that you are advertising Vermont Vintage Rentals by Joanne Bickford. I wanted to let you know what Joanne just recently did at my wedding at The Ponds on July 26. My father in law worked with Joanne for weeks to set up a price to rent some vintage furniture. On the day of set up, Joanne showed up with no help despite agreeing to set up the entire area as part of the contract. My family graciously helped Joanne unload the furniture and then had to help her take the furniture away after the wedding when she showed up again by herself to collect her furniture. After the wedding, we thought everything had gone well and everyone was happy, until Joanne tried to friend my wife on Facebook. My wife found the following post on Joanne's personal Facebook page: "I know this is classic, I'm not saying everyone who is financially comfortable is like this. My client this week, who has nickel and dimed me to death, was nice (dumb) enough to send me a photo of his home in Boston. When I pulled up to the venue, I was greatest (I'm assuming she means greeted...many spelling errors) by $200,000, worth of metal in the driveway, and to top it off, he has a medical practice. God beds him (again, 'bless' I am assuming) I wish I had 1 ounce of that selfishness. I'd rather be poor any day." She was referring to my father in law and included pictures of my father in laws house that he sent her believing she wanted to see some of his own vintage furniture, and took pictures of his car parked in the driveway of The Ponds. She posted this on the day of our wedding after dropping off the furniture and returned the next day hugging members of my family and giving out business cards in hopes of drumming up more business. This lady knows NOTHING about my family or my father in law and was extremely unprofessional and childish by posting personal information on her Facebook page slandering someone who had just paid thousands of dollars to her business. Obviously, we are all very upset about this and I send you this hoping you will reconsider advertising on her behalf in the future. Thank you.
