We wanted to share this stunning photo of our 46 foot round Sperry Tent installed for a cocktail hour at Laudholm Farm in Wells Maine. Sperry also installed a second tent for the wedding reception outside the barn for dinner.
This photo is a working tribute to how two great companies can work in tandem to create a fantastic event! This tent was installed by my daughter Ashley’s company Exeter Events and Tents. www.exetereventsandtents.com. The flooring was installed by her father’s company Sperry Tents Seacoast. Our family is very proud of both our great companies and their talented staff This event was at Hidden Pond In Kennebunk Maine
While many aspects of weddings have become less traditional and cookie-cutter over the years, one convention stubbornly remains: In heterosexual unions, the bride’s parents are still writing the majority of the checks. Is this because the parents of females are somehow magically wealthier? Of course not. It’s because many years ago, before women could own property, they were “given away” into marriage with a dowry, which was essentially a way to pay the groom’s family for taking their daughter off their hands.

I had a wonderful meeting with Anne Tracy of Salty and Sweet event Planing in Kennebunkport at my new favorite coffee shop Boulangerie at 5 Nasons Court in Kennebunk Maine. Anne is a very experienced and talented event planner. I have attached a photo of an event we did this summer on River Locks Rd Kennebunkport Maine. Stunning!
Rachel Zoe has been a bride once – and a bridal stylist
too many times to count – so she knows what it takes to make sure the big day goes off without a hitch. Here are her eight pro tips for a flawless wedding day.
“Definitely keep a little snack in your bag, along with gum and mints. You’re going to be talking to 700 people that night, and you’re not going to eat for many, many, many hours.” Continue reading
Today I was invited to meet with Holly Varney of The Groton Inn. This beautiful facility located in iconic Groton Mass. burnt to the ground in 2011. It took years of effort to gain approvals to rebuild the inn.
Today’s visit was remarkable. The architecture and workmanship in the new facility is a site to be seen. They are creating a specific area for tented weddings. The site rivals any tent venue in Northern New England. It has rolling hills and beautiful trees with hundreds of cattle grazing in the backdrop. It is right out of a movie!
I strongly recommend that clients call Holly at the Inn for a wedding package.
We installed this 32×50 Sperry Tent today for an event with The Cape Neddick Inn in York Maine. Danielle and Justin Walker recently purchased the Inn. We are doing a photoshoot with Danielle at another venue in York Harbor Maine. So you will also see us around York Harbor next summer.
