Hey there! I'm Sarah Gardner Bergan (She/her/hers), the founder of Vowed Vintage. Proud California native, dedicated creative, and avid vintage collector. When I'm not crafting lovely events, you’ll likely find me traveling, reading a good book, on the hunt for thrift store treasures, or grooving to Taylor Swift.

My journey into the world of wedding rentals was a serendipitous one, fueled by a lifelong fascination with unique and vintage finds. Along the way, I've discovered that my true passions lie in designing and coordinating weddings that let couples truly enjoy their special day.

On any given workday, you'll catch me answering emails, crafting detailed wedding timelines, and bringing bespoke event designs to life. 

The most fulfilling aspects of my work at Vowed Vintage? It's a trifecta of joy!


1. I love delving into creativity for every event design through crafting unique and memorable experiences.

2. Exploring cultural wedding traditions, each client brings a unique story, and learning about their cultural backgrounds and wedding traditions is a privilege and a joy.


3. perhaps the most special of all, getting to know my clients – your stories, dreams, and personalities inspire and shape the magic we create together.

XoXo, Sarah
