Dinner on the OKC Ferris Wheel

Posted 10/4/2016 by Mariannes Rentals

What a fun event to be a part of! For two nights, guests were treated to a four course dinner courtesy of Ludevine, one for each rotation! The event was called Le Restaurant Francais of the 1939 World Fair and was held on the former Santa Monica Pier Ferris Wheel, now located in Oklahoma City!

Our partner, Kindt Events, coordinated great rentals to compliment the theme. We were so pleased to see this great coverage in The Oklahoman's Sunday edition! Rental items featured include our Black and White Dance Floor and our Vintage Furniture Collection!

Wedding Redo Styled Shoot: Layla & Bobby

Posted 9/29/2016 by Mariannes Rentals

It's not every day you get to be a part of a styled shoot with so much heart! We were thrilled when Sue & Lou Events asked us to partner with them and Tara Lokey Photography to provide our pretties for Layla & Bobby's styled shoot. Layla & Bobby of Chickasa are the winners of Tara's Wedding Redo Styled Shoot contest. She graciously gave away her services to this lovely couple to redo their wedding portraits. 

Featured Items: Creation Blush Linen over Charcoal Polyester | Diana Settee | Mercury Glass Mirror | Pure Champagne Coupe | Mercury Glass Tray

Here is a bit of what Layla wrote in her contest entry: (you can read and see more on Tara's blog)

"I have too many blessings to complain about a bad picture: a mom who battled cancer and kicked its butt, a dad who has told me that I’m special every day of my life, a husband who has loved me so fiercely that I realized I was worth loving, a sister who has always believed in me and encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone, a God who never gives up on me, and a son who is more beautiful (inside and out) than I ever imagined possible.  My smile now reflects all of those things that I just couldn’t see about myself before."

Since her wedding, Layla lost over 160 lbs and her hard work, combined with her sweet attitude proves she was more than deserving of this experience. And boy did she shine!

Many other talented vendors came together to make this happen for Layla & Bobby. We're proud to have worked with so many giving and generous professionals on this project!

Corporate Event: Sealed Air Anniversary

Posted 9/26/2016 by Mariannes Rentals

We're proud to show off this corporate event by Meredith of Significant Events of Texas. We set up a 18x45 Meter Losberger Tent in Iowa Park, Texas along with a stage for their presentations, tables and chairs for 700 people! The Sealed Air plant of Iowa Park, one of the world's largest packing companies, celebrated their 40th anniversary in style with Meredith's help. She did a great job and it was a pleasure for Marianne's Rentals to be in Texas again!

After the event, the client sent us a great review! We were pleased to see she said,

"Fantastic experience working with you guys. You were so professional and the installation and products were top notch! Wish you were in Dallas! I hope we have a chance to work together again!"  

We hope so too Meredith and we have no objection at all to delivering in Dallas!

Photos are all by Images by Darah, who did a really fabulous job capturing our tent and the scale of the event. Thanks Darah!

Good Luck Sarah!

Posted 6/6/2016 by Mariannes Rentals

It's pageant week! Over the past 5 years, Marianne's Rentals for Special Events has been proud to work closely with the Miss Oklahoma Pageant system for The Linen Runway Show to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. In that time,  we've met many special girls and developed some particularly close relationships.  We're watching and rooting for our friends! 

Last year, the top three finalists came into our showroom to celebrate the spirit of teamwork and comraderie within the lovely girls representing our great state. Miss Oklahoma 2015, Georgia Frasier, was stunning in our Black Dazzle Sequin linens.  She was surrounded by Sarah Klein, Ashten Vincent and Ali Brooks.  Click on their names to vote for these amazing girls as fan favorites in this years contest! Each vote costs just $1; voting closes June 9th at 9pm.  Be sure to tune in to the Miss Oklahoma Pageant on June 11th, 2016 at 7:30 to cheer for your favorite!

While many of these girls have worn our linens over the years, we've developed a special relationship with the reigning Miss Tulsa, Sarah Klein. She's sweet and caring, as beautiful on the inside and out. We've been proud to have her wearing our linens many times before the camera and last year, she was featured in our special event advertising campaign.

Thank you, Sarah, for everything you've done for Marianne's Rentals! We're rooting for you!
