A Great Entrance, A Great Event: Sperry Tents, Kittery ME

As we recently set our clocks forward to “spring ahead” of a cold winter, Sperry is ready and excited for another busy year.  But before we get too ahead of ourselves…lets recap a great event from the 2009 season!

In June of 2009 we had the distinct pleasure of working with Melissa Mack of Moxie Events on one of the largest elevated flooring events in Sperry history.  Set in an ocean-side backyard of Kittery, ME, the level flooring design supported a 64’x125’ Sperry tent, the largest sailcloth tent handcrafted in Marion, MA.  Accommodating the sloping backyard, our leveled floor created a classic ballroom dining setting and provided stunning ocean views.  The tent, dressed with beautiful event décor, was adorned with custom asian lanterns filling the reception with elegant ambiance.

With anxious guests awaiting their arrival, a faint motor could be heard echoing through the bay.  Moments later the bride and groom could be seen fashionably approaching the familiar dock.  With a grand entrance from the water, the celebration was underway.


Three days of piecing the floor together, erecting the tent, and fine-tuning produced an event that the guests, and especially the bride and groom, will never forget.  The reception was a huge success.  The love and support for the newly wedded couple was visible as guests gathered under the cover of the sailcloth tent on the enormous elevated floor.

With favors provided by Maine-ly New Hampshire, party rentals by Be Our Guest, and furniture from Party by Design, the event was truly a display of tasteful planning and elegant décor.  The celebration was artistically documented by Michelle Turner Photography, providing an album of memories for the bride and groom.  This very special, elevated occasion was one to remember!
