Please describe the project specifications

This project consisted of a 6,600 sq.ft. clearspan tent erected on elevated flooring on the family’s back country estate for a wedding reception for 300 guests.

The client wanted an over-the-top spectacular, weatherproof environment to house his daughter’s wedding that made a dramatic statement to the guests, as well as highlight the gardens of the property.

The challenges involved in achieving the client’s goals were:

This wedding was rescheduled twice due to Covid. During that time, the bride’s father decided to renovate their home and garden which changed our project considerably.

In addition to the main tent and floor, the client wanted us to construct a floor over the pool to accommodate the cocktail hour.

They also relocated the tent to a portion of the property that had a large, mature tree that needed to be incorporated into the design and construction.

They added air conditioning and a front porch a few weeks before the wedding.

The project was a complete success.

What is unique or complex about the project?

We needed to incorporate existing trees through the top of the tent as well as the elevated floor of the tent.
