Matthew Robbins-Designed Bridgehampton Wedding Featured on Town & Country Online

Held at Villa de Amis, a private residence in Bridgehampton, this July wedding from last season was pure perfection from start to finish. The wedding party wore pale pinks and summertime blues while the tent decor by Matthew Robbins employed neutral linens brightened by pops of coral peonies in the floral arrangements. The reception was held under our 66′ x 86′ tent, with our signature wrought-iron chandeliers softened by hanging greenery. View the full feature on townandcountry.com.

Fall Whimsy – A Wedding in Water Mill, NY

Although the October wedding day of Stacey and Jim was beautiful and marked by rich detail and some dashing furry friends, there was one outside factor that couldn’t be helped: rain, and lots of it. Since both the ceremony and reception were to be held on the lawn of the bride’s parents’ home in Water Mill, wedding planner Jill Gordon of Jill Gordon Celebrate was forced to execute her “Plan B.” Instead of holding the ceremony and cocktails outside in the open, she grouped different sized tents together to protect guests throughout each stage of the day’s festivities.

Bethany & Niko’s Wedding in Bridgehampton

The wedding of Bethany and Niko was a weekend-long affair that culminated in a romantic ceremony on the shores of Sagg Pond. With friends and family looking on and Sagaponack’s Main Beach in the distance, the couple exchanged vows under a fully floored Sperry Tent, complete with a rose petal-lined aisle.

Special thanks to Tanya Malott Photographer for these photos – we couldn’t share this wonderful wedding without your beautiful work!

Janet O’Brien Caterers + Events Inc. worked closely with Bethany and Niko to plan a seamless wedding that blended a Moroccan feel with bohemian style. The stunning menu blended cuisines from around the world. Passed hors d’oeuvres kicked off the festivities with Champagne, ponzu marinated duck, rare seared tuna, thai samosas, grilled cheese toasts, sushi, tuna tartare, and more.

One of the wedding’s most unique elements was the attention to detail. Bethany personally selected the exotic fabrics, the Moroccan incense burners, and sweets for the kids. These bright pops of color were tempered by the serenity of white linens and ivory sailcloth canopies overhead. Guests mingled and moved between the tented lounge area and the main reception tent. Moroccan lanterns on the dining tables and hanging lanterns throughout both tents provided a romantic glow as day turned into evening.

For the main course, guests enjoyed a family-style meal at long tables. “It is a great way for guests to strike up conversation and share a meal like old friends,” describes O’Brien. “Every family setting offered portions of foods, including Mediterranean olives, spiced pecans, freshly baked breads, and roasted artichoke hearts. Then, for the main course, we served beautiful platters of filet mignon medallions and striped bass filets with a variety of sauces and glazes.”

For dessert, guests enjoyed Bethany’s favorite – tiramisu – plus white chocolate and chocolate wafer sticks, bowls of fresh raspberries, mini cookies, mini eclairs, and biscotti. Not to be outdone, the children all received ice cream with chocolate sauce.

As the night progressed, the festivities continued with yet another surprise: an eclipse across a full moon. The 46 x 105 and 32 x 50 Sperry Tents glowed against the deep blue of the darkening night sky. It was a perfect celebration from start to finish. Congrats Bethany and Niko!

A June Wedding, A Garden Setting

The idea was to emulate an elegant yet relaxed garden party, and it helped that the bride and groom chose the perfect setting – Bridge Gardens in Bridgehampton. Our 46′ x 105′ Sperry Tent was surrounded by the preserve’s lavender beds and topiaries, creating a magical setting both inside and out.

Organized by Hamptons-based event planner Jill Gordon, the wedding day started off with an outdoor ceremony. And as the early summer light began to fade, guests entered the reception tent for dinner by The Art of Eating catering.

There were so many clever and thoughtful touches throughout the ceremony and the reception. We especially love the favors – Dreesen’s Donuts!

Bistro strings by Matt Murphy Event Lighting continued the garden theme by evoking bistro-style open-air decor. Day eventually turned into evening and just about everyone hit the dance floor thanks to music by Love Jones. Each step along the way was beautifully captured by Weddings by Two, who shared the photos with us – thanks guys!

When Art, Nature, and Romance Collide

They knew they wanted an outdoor wedding ceremony and reception, and after reviewing a variety of options, this couple decided on LongHouse Reserve in East Hampton, a choice not without sentimental value (they had summered in the Hamptons for years). Set in the North Woods on 16 acres, the venue offered an artistic combination of gardens and sculpture as well as a natural grassy amphitheater for their ceremony.

It was no surprise that a couple who live in Nicaragua and who manage the construction of environmentally conscious homes and schools wanted a green wedding. Relying on local vendors, including event planner Beth Helmstetter, florist Claire Bean, and caterer Brent Newsom, they devised a day exemplifying thoughtful details and romantic elegance.

The 46′ x 105′ Sperry Tent fit effortlessly into the natural setting.

We are so grateful to Corbin Gurkin Photography for allowing us access to these beautiful images. It was a great day and a great shoot!

A Vineyard Wedding

Sperry Tents Sag HarborSolid Tent Sides

Michael and Alissa decided to have their July wedding ceremony and reception at Old Field Vineyards on Long Island, a setting characterized by beach access as well as wide open fields and rows of grape vines overlooking Peconic Bay.

After an outdoor ceremony, guests enjoyed dinner under a 46 x 85 Sperry Tent at long tables decorated with potted herbs and plants as well as cut garden roses and bottles of Old Field’s wine. Lounge furniture and lanterns encourage lingering and conversation just outside the tent.

The evening continued with bite-size desserts and dancing to the live band Skyline. Photos provided courtesy Belathee Photography – even more photos can be viewed on the Belathee blog. (This event is also a featured real-life wedding on Martha Stewart Weddings online.)

Sperry Tents Hamptons

New Tent Design from Sperry

Sperry has introduced a new tent! The Sperry Pavilion is now one of the most unique frame tents available for weddings and special events.

Comprised of an ivory sailcloth top and a natural wood frame, the Pavilion offers a clear (pole-free) interior span. It measures 31′ x 51′, with 26′ x 46′ of usable space, and can remain open to the elements or, in colder weather, be fully sided and enclosed.
