Sperry Tents Seacoast was on the road again last week meeting with clients for 2018 weddings. Here is a stunning late fall photo of an exquisite Oceanside backyard on Dolivers Neck Road in Gloucester Massachusetts. We would install custom anchors to install our 46×105 Sperry Sailcloth Tent. We are only limited by our imagination!
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!
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.
There are two types of marriage proposal: the total shocker, and the one you can see coming from miles away, as if it’s traveling on a Goodyear blimp. Depending on how long you’ve been dating—and how much you’ve talked about marriage with your partner—you can probably guess which type of proposal awaits you.

So unless your fiancé-to-be is a total master at the art of surprise, here are all of the surefire signs you’re about to get a view of him on one knee—so you can prepare accordingly.
