Inspiring Conversations with Jessica and Steven Alvarez of Xylo Event Rentals

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessica and Steven Alvarez.

Jessica and Steven, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
Steven has always loved craftsmanship. In college, he started to build custom furniture for himself, friends and family. Jessica and Steven worked together to build fifteen wooden farmhouse tables. Used for their own wedding and friends as well, these tables have the Pinterest wedding look Jessica wanted. It all started as a hobbit for Steven, but after time they realized many other couples loved their work and wanted it at their own event. Jessica loved working with people and assisting happy couples, while her husband enjoys the hands-on tasks of the business.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
2020 was a struggle for many small businesses. Established in 2018, we had started the ball rolling well. However many events and wedding were cancelled in the midst of the pandemic. So we had to learn how to support or clients in the process and remain flexible.

We’ve been impressed with Xylo Event Rentals, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We are a local business in Winter Park, FL, that specializes in event rentals. Our inventory includes our handmade beautiful farmhouse tables, wooden French cross back chairs, and more. We are a husband and wife team that love working closely with our couples and value the look of a beautiful wedding without breaking the bank. When we planned our own wedding in 2019, I was shocked at the cost of a wedding. Everything on my Pinterest board was out of budget and my “dream wedding” seemed out of reach. Steven and I realize that this is the case for many brides and we take immense pleasure in providing our services at very competitive prices.

Is there a quality that you most attribute to your success?
Steven and I have always valued good communication and customer service. As a bride, you have so many things on your plate that you are trying to figure out. And we make sure that we provide the utmost professionalism and courtesy to make planning more enjoyable. Planning a wedding should be exciting, not stressful and we do everything we can to make it that way.
