The bride and groom for this summer wedding wanted a chic black-tie affair, so Laurie Arons, owner of Laurie Arons Special Events, crafted a tent design that was elevated and elegant. “The bride loved rose gold, so we used that metallic as an accent to keep the design formal,” Arons says. The warm-toned taper candles down the tables, along with the upholstered dining chairs, reminded the couple of an intimate dinner party.
When planning a tented wedding, it’s very important to think through all weather-related obstacles. “Yes, a beautiful sunny day is the perfect setting for an outdoor tented wedding, but what will the vibe feel like if it's freezing outside or pouring rain?” says Kristin Doggett, co-founder and creative director of Bellafare. For this affair, white-washed wooden tables and chairs, and touches of airy décor were the perfect foundation for an ethereal event, despite the uncertainty of gloomy weather.
