WHEN AND HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN THE WEDDING INDUSTRY? A LA CRATE Rentals opened in 2011 by co-founders Sarah and Jeff Mullins after their own wedding. Having found a need for one-of-a-kind rentals, they started collecting and sharing unique items out of a small garage they rented and let the business organically grow. In 2020, A LA CRATE was acquired by Event Essentials (ee) and is now their Boutique Division of Rentals!
