There’s something old school, classic and elegant about a tented reception. Remember that magical scene in Father of the Bride when George Banks enters his tented backyard for the first time after months of planning his daughter’s wedding? He didn’t understand the vision until he saw it — hundreds of twinkle lights fluttering from the tent’s peak, tapered candles glowing, cascading flowers — a sophisticated, fairytale-like feeling in the air. Sigh.
We love tented receptions. They are a compromise between indoor and outdoor venues, boasting the rustic charm and peace of the outdoors, yet offering the infrastructure and conveniences of a banquet hall.
