The Reception Tent
Surrounded by blooming flowers and trees, our ivory Sperry Tent transforms your dream event space and makes a visual impact on your guests. Made from beautiful sailcloth and providing an atmosphere of elegance, Sperry Tents are the crème de la crème of tents. Adding to the beauty of the Sperry tent is the comfort and convenience of the artificial turf. Advantages of artificial turf over grass is 1) Great drainage, therefore no sogginess and a lot less bugs 2) No problem with leveling tables and chairs 3) Chairs and heels don’t sink 4) The bottom of the bride’s dress is not getting soiled as it would from being on grass or any other flooring 5) Once you kick off your shoes it feels like carpeting to walk on! The combination of the Sperry Tent, artificial turf and breathtaking views makes this outdoor venue the perfect choice.
