Griffin Wedding Event

IMG_1316Ogunquit a summer resort whose name means “beautiful place by the sea” is a regular location for our outdoor tented events. Once the part of Wells Maine the sleepy seaside town sports a population of 892 people. An extremely popular summertime retreat in southern Maine because of it’s central location to York and Wells Maine alone with the seaside city of  Portsmouth New Hampshire. We were honored to be a part of the private wedding event for the Griffin family. Working with Beautiful Days Events in Maine we setup on of our elegant  46X125 Sperry Tents on the Strata engineered floor.  The caterer was Kitchen Chicks in Cape Neddick, ME. Supplying a banquet that was fit for a King and Queen.

We had to setup the floor and supports so we could traverse a large sloping hill and keep everything level and structurally safe for the celebration that would occur on top of our floor! All went perfect and another successful event is in the books. Visit our website for more Maine outdoor tented weddings.

The Biddeford, ME Private Wedding Event

Gnall 3What a wonderful location to install one of our 46′ round Sperry Tents with a Strata Engineered floor.  The location was a private home in Biddeford, ME. Sandwiched between Old Orchard Beach and Kenneybunkport Maine, Bidderford is a sleepy ocean front community with it’s northern boarder on the Saco river. This offers all types of water front beauty from Ocean views, river locations and small river lakes making it a very desirable location for suburbanites living in Seacoast Maine.

The installation was very challenging as you can see in the picture we installed a floor and tent on the side of the hill and center stage for a magnificent water view. We created a space that many event guest thought the tent actually sat on a preexisting deck! Check out our website to see more Wedding tent events and start planning your outdoor event today!

What a great event it was and a special thanks to the caterer Aurora Provisions in Portland. We all know what is a successful event without good food, right?  Continue reading

I am writing this note with a huge smile on my face!!  The wedding was spectacular & special, even with the thunderstorm that ensued about 15 minutes after the ceremony!!!  No one seemed to care as the partying had begun.  I want you to know how the tent totally blended into our backyard scenery & all our guests that that it was a permanent deck!!  Yikes, can you imagine a deck that size???

From start to finish, you & the rest of your crew have been so helpful & all your hard work was so appreciated.  I must admit, I could not quite imagine how it would look (& why the flooring was so expensive!!!) but it was one of the 7 wonders of the world!!!  I promise to forward a professional photo once we receive them.  Again, my sincere thanks for an outstanding professional job.  I’ve given your name to lots of friends & neighbors.

I’m going to let you in on a little secret that I learned early on in my career as an event planner—you can control a great number of things, but the weather will never be one of them. I know, I know. This isn’t want you want to hear. No one wants to rent a tent for their wedding. They can be expensive, and daunting to think about, and the sky is just so lovely this time of year. But if you have to rent a wedding tent (and don’t kid yourself: outdoor venue, no backup plan, high chance of rain? You may have to), then you’re going to want to make sure you price that in your “affordable and easy” outdoor venue cost early on, and then keep reading. Because there is actually (surprisingly) kind of a lot you need to know: Continue reading
