With such an incredible number of wedding venues to choose from, we often get asked if we have some favorites. Of course many of the venues we’ve worked with are gorgeous and great in their own right, but our favorite? A tented wedding at a private residence. Yes, you heard us. Our favorite venue is sitting right outside your own doors!
Why do we love this venue option above all others? It’s a blank space that can be personalized to the couple. When you go through a rented venue, there are many issues that can arise. You want a fall wedding? The venue may not allow open flames or heaters. You want to bring in some gorgeous mahogany chiavari chairs you found at a local rentals company? They don’t allow outside rentals. You have a specific caterer who makes mouth watering Cabernet braised short ribs? The venue only allows a select list of catering options. Having a wedding at a private residence allows for complete control and creative license. You can make your wedding as simplistic or as glamorous as is fitting to you as a couple without having to follow a pre-set structure of contrived rules and guidelines.
And of course, nothing says romance like having your wedding outdoors whether it's beside the soft splashing of waves on the coast or surrounded by a lush, green vineyard. And really, who doesn't want their first dance to be under the stars? There's just something ethereal about a tented outdoor wedding that always leaves guests and the couple feeling as if their wedding was something out of a dream.
And if those aren't reasons enough, we love tented, private weddings for the pure fact that it makes the couple and the guests feel at ease, comfortable and still elegant all at the same time. The bride and groom can spend the day-of getting ready in the comfort of a familiar setting and the guests can feel more at ease. The couple also doesn't have to worry about any uninvited guests happening upon the wedding, as can occur in a public venue. There won't be any hotel venue guests walking by the reception in their bathing suits, joggers running through to take a peak at a park venue, or tourists snapping a picture at a beach front resort. Complete privacy, elegance and comfort is guaranteed at a tented private wedding.
Just take a look at some of the absolutely STUNNING and detailed tented weddings we've designed and planned!
I think the pictures speak for themselves. These weddings all exuded an intimate, comfortable, fun and elegant vibe without having to rent out a public venue.
