At Home Wedding Tent Timelapse Video

Today I am sharing something that I’ve been wanting to create for my wedding clients for years – a time-lapse video of a wedding tent set up! I really wanted to show people how much work goes into these set ups so that they understand why tents “cost so much.” I wrote an extensive post about why tents cost so much  for United With Love, which you can find here.

Clear Top Frame Tent

Featuring another gorgeous clear top frame tent used for a wedding ceremony and dinner reception in Alexandria, Virginia. Not at a private home, but at the Hotel Monaco, yet still a really pretty set up. This tent came from Classic  Party Rentals. Photos by the immensely talented Sam Hurd.

Clear Top Tent!

How gorgeous is this clear top tent from Select Event Rental?! It was not installed at a private home, but it is still stunning. It just glows at night, and takes my breath away. You really can appreciate being outdoors while still protecting your guests from the elements. Photos made by Kurstin Roe.

Backyard Barn Wedding Reception in Virginia

After their river bank wedding ceremony, Samantha and Mark’s guests gathered around the barn for a casual celebration. Design Cuisine set up a tasty lemonade stand to complement the troughs of canned drinks on ice. Guests played lawn games and enjoyed a photo booth from The Prop Stop. Lynnvale used whitewashed boxes for the centerpieces and Meant To Be Calligraphy did a chalkboard menu for the dinner buffet. Again, thanks to Natalie Lane Photography for the great memories.

A Family Farm Wedding in Virginia

Samantha and Mark married at her mom’s farm in Front Royal, Virginia. The nuptials were on the river bank, with a sweet, personal ceremony filled with the participation of adorable nieces and nephews. Lynnvale Studio created gorgeous blue and white florals. Natalie Lane made these fantastic photos. Sidebar: Samantha’s dad Larry has a business partner named Paul. Between these two dads, I’ve now done four weddings, two of which were at this farm. It gives me such joy and honor to be a regular part of these families’ celebrations.
