Gretchen Bio Picture

Gretchen Ulrich

Founder, Stylist & Chief Dishwasher

Gretchen has a passion for the gorgeous details that transform the ordinary to extraordinary. With a strong background in marketing and event planning ,she fuses her creativity and perfectionism together to make events memorable down to the very last detail.

Gretchen had such a blast searching for vintage touches for her own wedding in 2013 that she decided to turn her hobby into a career, and launched Otis + Pearl Vintage Rentals in 2015 with the items she collected from her wedding. What started with a collection of pretty teacups, dessert plates and cool vases has now grown into a unique collection of over 2,000 mismatched tabletop pieces. Gretchen now finds herself with her dream job, looking at pretty things all day, and doing it all to help her clients celebrate the best days of their lives!

HOBBIES: traveling, hunting for vintage treasures, paddle boarding, photography, walks on the beach with her hubby and her two dogs Otis & Spike

FAVORITE PARTS OF WEDDINGS: Personalized wedding vows, signature cocktails, heartfelt toasts, and of course a good wedding band!
