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.

Vintage Trailers || Not Just For Camping

At Tinker Tin Trailer Co. we've built a business around unique vintage Trailers! Nothing gives us a thrill like trailer picking' and bringing one of these pieces of history back to life!

A majority of the vintage camper trailers in our fleet have been restored back to their originally glory and continue to serve the purpose they were originally manufactured for: camping. That being said, a lot of the members of our fleet have also been repurposed for different kinds of adventures!

Here's a few of our favorite vintage trailers used for purposes outside of camping throughout history:

1940's Vintage Milk Vending Trailer

Name a better way to enjoy a glass of ice cold milk then on tap from a vintage vending trailer on the back of your pony?! We'll wait....

Vintage_Trailer_Vending_Concession_1950s_Tinkertin_1.jpg

1940's Vintage Church Trailer

With this 1950's chapel on wheels you'll never have to choose between camping or missing Sunday morning church service again! Growing up Catholic we've spent a lot of time in churches. We've also spent a lot of time out camping in "God's Country" ... What could possibly get you closer to Jesus than combining the two like this 1950's camper church did?!

Vintage_Trailer_Vending_Concession_1950s_Tinkertin_Church_Trailer.jpg

1930s Levis Rodeo Trailer

This one takes us back to the days when marketing was done right. Before "influencers", Instagram and Facebook was how we learned what was cool... All Levi's needed to do was create an amazing, traveling puppet show rodeo trailer and ALL the kids were begging their parents for a new pair of Levis!

1930s Western Union Telegraph Vintage Trailer

The original "mobile phone" concept.... As your viewing this blog from your iPhone, we hope you'll take a moment to appreciate the times when "mobile phones" weren't able to fit in your pocket, but had to be pulled by your car instead.

1930s Salesman Trailer

This one's a mobile show room on wheels for customers to come inside and view new products!

1940s Public Library Trailer

This is one of our favorites! There is no excuse not to read when the library can come to you!

1930s Vintage Election Campaign Trailer

We don't know who won or lost this election, but it's safe to say they would have had our vote! 

Vintage_Trailer_Vending_Concession_1950s_Tinkertin_Election_Trailer.JPG

Here's a few vintage trailers from our fleet we've restored and repurposed for different adventures!

We've got vintage bar trailers... we've got vintage photo booth trailers... and we've got vintage vending trailers! We've got lounge trailers, tipis, tents and all kinds of other quirky ideas up our sleeve for our next fun vintage trailer to, and we can't wait to share them with you all!

Our 1958 Roll - O - Vend vintage trailer was manufactured in 1958 as a vending trailer for Pepsi Cola to sell sodas out of! We restored it to its original glory to be used as a bar and vending trailer! This vintage trailer can be rented as bar trailer at events but is also available for long term leases for branding and marketing campaigns!

This rare 1948 Barrel is one of only 3 known to exist! We converted this unique camper into a one-of-a kind "serve yourself" style beer trailer complete with 2 tap handles, holding capacity for 2 full size kegs, built-in ice chest on tongue of trailer for grab-n-go beverages, and drop down shelving on the side of the trailer perfect for placing glassware or drink dispensers!

The Jam Event in Santa Barbara

What happens when you challenge California’s best group of wedding vendors to pull out all the stops for an 80's themed showcase of their talents at one of the most unique venues  Santa Barbara? [And when we say unique we mean a venue complete with multiple green houses…. Gardens and even a psychedelic skate park….]

We’ll tell you what happens…. The party of the freakin’ century!! In case you miss it on our insta story... Last month Tinker Tin was lucky enough to be a part of the third annual Jam Event and wowwweeee!!! It was like nothing we’d ever seen before. It was like the olympics of California's wedding vendors and everyone involved that showcased their incredible talent were gold metal winners! 

The Jam Event Santa Barbara

The event was produced by Jaime at Wild Heart Events and Sophie at Amazing Day Events. We cannot say enough about the incredible production these fabulous ladies brought everyone together for!The theme this year was the 80’s. If heaven has an 80's genre... We may have gotten an early sneak peak. And when we say heavenly we mean KFC themed gourmet eating, hair crimping bar, pink flamingos everywhere you look kinda heavenly. 

We rolled in our mobile bar trailers, set up shop with Sidecar and served delicious cocktails and ice-cold beer all night while we partied the night away! Here are few of our favorite shots from the night! 

Vintage Keg Trailer
1958 Roll-o-Vend Vintage Vending Trailer

 We might be biased but we're pretty damn sure Sidecar is the best mobile bar service in California and the line of people waiting for cocktails all night proved it (we're also pretty sure cocktails taste better when served out of a vintage trailer)! 

The Wedding Standard

Our incredibly talented friends from The Wedding Standard chose the theme Miami Vice & they nailed it! 

Shout out to Lovelyfest Event Design for this GORGEOUS table-scape & Noonan's Wine Country Designs for the floral arrangements !

If there was an award for the most awkwardly dress group.... We for sure would have won it. But we L O V E our Sidecar-Tinker Tin team!! 

We've never seen a skatepark look SO GLAM!! This was one of 5 different party rooms transformed into a clever/gorgeous/awesome/amazing setting!!

YES THERE WAS EVEN A SILENT DISCO ROOM....

The Tinker Tin Bride

The New Year means new trailers, new adventures and especially NEW BRIDES!!!

We have come to find that all our Tinker Tin Brides have a few things in common.... they are a unique kind of lady that beats to their own drums, crave adventure, and are typically more drawn to out of the box ideas and putting their personal touches on each and every part of their wedding weekend! This is their Big Day and their Love Story, and any ol' wedding just ain't going to cut it!

To celebrate 2017 weddings, we wanted to appreciate the creative master minds behind some of our past Brides weddings!

Tinker Tin Trailer's vintage rentals have been a part of Rustic Barn Weddings, Modern Glam Weddings… Colorful & culturally influenced weddings (one even included an ELEPHANT RIDE)... The list could go on, but one thing is for sure... no two Tinker Tin weddings have been the same!

We’ve rolled our trailers into gorgeous ranches and wineries for weddings here in our hometown of San Luis Obispo County, on down to Santa Barbara, Malibu, Los Angeles, and San Diego ... up to Napa, Ca, San Francisco and across state lines to Arizona, Austin, Texas (we love a good road trip)! It’s been an honor and a privilege to see and be part of the incredibly unique and personal weddings our Tinker Tin couples dream up with the love of their lives!

Now to the Tinker Tin wedding inspiration part of this blog…. (Note… We love all of our Brides equally, so whether your photos on here or not... this blog is a Thank You to you!)

Vintage Photo Booth Rental

The vintage trailer photo booths are so much fun at weddings! The guests and wedding party alike have so much fun creating everlasting memories inside of it! The vintage trailer photo booth interior is custom styled to match your wedding day style and color!!

One of our favorite parts of the photo booth is the guest book of photos and memories we gift to the Bride and Groom so they can see photos of their wedding guests forever. We seriously encourage you to check out the entire wedding feature on Snippet & Ink.

The MOST Dreamy Camping Inspired Weddings

Camping feeds the Tinker Tin soul which is why we couldn't be more obsessed with the growing trend of camp weddings. Whether it's the on the beach, in the woods or at the desert Tinker Tin's tipis, bell tents & trailers are most at home boondocking with all the adventurous couples who have a passion for the great outdoors! Our tipis and bell tents can be styled into the perfect honeymoon sweet or reception lounge! See for yourself....

Bridal Photo Inspiration

An Enchantingly Rainy Barn Wedding at Swallow Creek Ranch in Cayucos, Ca.

Kelsey and Alex planned to have sunny day ceremony overlooking the ocean in Cayucos, Ca. However, rather than sunshine they ended up having to work with thick fog and every Bride’s biggest fear… RAIN! Rather than ducking for cover however, this couple happily embraced the weather and decided to dance in the rain!

This quickly became one of our favorite weddings! The rain added a romantic and magical atmosphere, plus Kelsey and Alex were such a neat couple surrounded by so much Love! We were too honored to put our Tinker Tin twist through out their wedding with out Sioux Tipi, 1964 Ford, 1961 Shasta Bar Trailer and 1948 Barrel Trailer keg trailer....  Here’s an amazing Super8 video by Mark Brown that captured the day PERFECTLY!
