Wedding Crashing with Tinker Tin Trailer Co.

We love trailers and we love LOVE… so when we get the chance to marry the 2 together (get it?) we feel extra lucky!! All of our trailer couples are so fun and unique, they all tend to beat to their own drum and think outside the box! Our vintage trailers have been a part of large weddings and small, we’ve rolled into rustic barn weddings, modern and hip love stories, industrial and artistic weddings, private nuptials out in the woods and on the beach, and even 1 circus wedding! From Palm Springs to San Francisco, weddings in Saratoga to San Diego- it never gets old seeing how our vintage bar trailers, vintage bridal suite trailers and vintage trailer photo booth’s uniquely fit into each couples big day!

Sidecar Cocktail Co. has served thousands of cocktails out of our Sidecar Shasta vintage bar trailer, wedding guests have poured countless beers out of the 1948 barrel keg trailer and we’ve seen some complete and utter chaos go on inside the 1953 Crown vintage photo booth trailer.

On that note… We wanted to share a few wedding highlights from our travels up and down the highway of love this year.

Erin & Marshall’s wedding at the Holland Ranch

Erin and Marshall’s wedding at Holland Ranch in San Luis Obispo looked like it was straight out of an Anthropology catalogue! The decor was by far some of the best we’ve ever seen and we basically wanted to load up their displays and styled lounges and take them home to redecorate our house! You can see a full feature of their wedding by Green Wedding Shoe’s HERE. All photos were taken by Anna Delores Photography.

A gorgeous wedding at the Holland Ranch in San Luis Obispo, Ca. This Bohemian them wedding was also featured in Green Wedding Shoes.

Lynley & Terry’s big day at Swallow Creek Ranch

Waving goodbye to 2016!

“Never get so busy making a living, that you forget to make a life."

 -Dolly Parton

It’s no secret here at Tinker Tin that Dolly Parton means a lot more to us than just a blonde busty little pistol with one hell of a voice. We like to consider her more, as our unofficial life coach. This year and every year we try to follow her words of wisdom, or Dolly-isms! The quote above is one of our favorites- and we used it to continually check ourselves throughout the year.

We love what we do, so it’s hard to always call it work, but even we need to be reminded to take a break from our trailer projects & to hit the road and camp in these little pieces of American history… the way they were meant to be enjoyed!!

2016 has been a year filled with new (well… new for us) trailers, lots of new friends & exciting new adventures (cough cough The Trailer Pond cough cough)! Before we head on down the road to 2017 we wanted to stop & share a few of our favorite Tinker Tin adventures from 2016...

A long time dream of ours has been to open a campsite venue and this year after a lot of blood, sweat and tears that dream came true! Welcome to The Trailer Pond at Alta Colina!

Yosemite National Park

We delivered a couple vintage trailers into the Yosemite foothills this summer, then headed straight into the park! The above left photo was taken at Stoneman Meadow in the Yosemite Valley in 1929, the photo to the right we took in the same place on our trip in 2016! Almost 100 years later how lucky are we to be able to enjoy these same incredible views that will forever be preserved!

We took the 1956 Jewel on our Eastern Sierra campout! It's always so exciting hitting the road with these old campers!

Our feet were sore & our hearts were full after dancing the night away at our 3rd annual Tinker Tin Trailer Prom at BarrelHouse Brewery in Templeton, CA! Trailer Prom was inspired by Junk Gypsy prom in Texas & all the old Texas honky tonks, that we fell in love with years ago on our 1st trip to Texas!! We LoVe loved how the JG Prom brought all the old junkers + junk lovers, plus friends old and new together under the stars for 1 magical night a couple times a year! We wanted to recreate that for the Vintage Trailer community here on the west coast- so Trailer Prom was born! One special night a year, Californian's can now 2 step the night away with fellow junkers, history lovers, and most importantly trailer enthusiasts!!
