Hi! We are Tori & Mike Kozan and together we are the owners of Detroit Chiavari, a special events rental company based in the Detroit area. We were engaged in 2015 and we recently experienced the best day of our lives, our wedding, on June 24th, 2017!
It was during our engagement that we founded Detroit Chiavari. As we began to plan our wedding, we were quite surprised at the prices some companies were charging for wedding products and services. Since Mike and I both worked in purchasing in the automotive industry at the time, we naturally tore apart every cost. We made spreadsheets among spreadsheets and requested cost breakdowns for just about everything trying to get the best deal while still having our dream wedding.
After picking our venue, actually, I mean 3 venues (we changed our location 2 times, I’m sure you can all understand!), we knew we wanted Chiavari chairs. To our surprise, the cheapest quote we received for 200 Chiavari chairs was over $2400 and this was most definitely not in our budget. This is when we made our first big decision together as an (almost) married couple- we decided to buy Chiavari chairs to rent out at weddings at a decent cost so other couples could have their dream wedding just like we hoped to. Over two years later, our business has grown and our inventory is more than just Chiavari chairs. We carry farm tables, cross-back farm chairs, vintage furniture, a beer-tap bar, and other vintage décor. It has been a crazy and exciting ride for us and we are excited so to see what the future holds!
A little about us…when we’re not working, we love doing anything and everything together! We love to travel, work on our home (Mike working in the garage & Tori decorating with everything Home Goods), eat pizza, and spend time with our family and friends!
We love meeting other couples as happy and in love as we are and we can’t think of anything better than to be a part of your special day!
Hope to hear from you soon!
Tori & Mike- Mr. & Mrs. Kozan
