Rain or Shine

For anyone hosting a wedding at home, please allow me to share some simple advice. Hope for the best, plan for the worst. The secret to a tented wedding is to have a great Plan B….with a generator, a back up generator, and a dream team of vendors who smile through it all.

Below, we started building the tent Tuesday just as the weatherman announced tornado warnings in the area.  Who ever heard of tornados in the Hamptons? Well, just the threat.  And in all honesty, not the first time I’ve had to put up a tent in threatening weather. IMG_1804  The sun came out Friday night, just in time for the ceremony rehearsal.IMG_1885but on Saturday the clouds returned.IMG_1878

Father of the Bride was obviously concerned.IMG_1903

But the lovely Lindsay remained unfazed…IMG_1904 The vendors continued to work their magic….IMG_1899

and the bridesmaids continued to toast the happy couple.IMG_1908 who were able to take their photos outdoors as planned. _42A9062

Even with the “plan b” tent, the ceremony was just magical. _08A0630_08A0791_08A0859

Nearly 50 big umbrellas helped smooth transition from ceremony to cocktails and reception. _08A0901As long as the 16 foot custom bar was ready to serve their 200 guests, all was well.bar

Despite the weather outside, all was dry and welcoming inside._08A8897_08A8754

Their tent was rocking!  And not just because of the wind and rain.11373522_1454778731508935_1698689309_n_08A9687All’s well that ends well.  Congratulations Lindsay and Tony!  Thank you for trusting us with your big day!

Special thanks to the amazing team of vendors who were calm in the storm.  NY Tent, Luminous Designs, Claire Bean, Cloud Catering and Groove Society and Element Music.
