Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

Northern Royal all started because of a crazy love story. That love story would be my wife and I. I met my beautiful wife in Ontario, Canada and I was originally from southern Michigan. Our first summer together we practically spent every hot sunny day at the beach and ended our summer nights parked under the moonlight sky down some back country road in Canada. During the most magical summer, we also started an Etsy Store in which we really enjoyed. Once we got married we decided to close our Etsy store and create our own website which is now called Northern Royal.

I’ve had a love of history and all things vintage my whole life. I vividly remember asking my parents to tell me about the “olden days” each night at bedtime and have always been drawn to things that speak of the past. My company was born out of a desire to indulge that passion. I’ve collected things as long as I can remember and, in recent years, also discovered a natural talent for styling and staging. A vintage rental company serving the wedding industry provides the perfect place for the two to intersect.
