I’m posting this picture for a few reasons.
It’s an excellent establishing shot. Wedding photographers will send me a bunch of photos and they have all these lovely details, but there’s no photo that shows me how it all comes together. That’s a really giant piece of the puzzle missing for me. It’s important to get that shot of the decor before your guests descend on the scene.
Also, check out the tent poles. You can’t see them. That’s because they’re wrapped. It’s something that probably doesn’t occur to folks that rent tents for the first time, but hiding the mechanics of the tent will really add to the ambiance in a big way. Here, the poles are wrapped in fabric that resembles curtains. See how they frame the space? And then the fabric becomes swagging along the ceiling.
The row of rustic, simple chandeliers really adds something, as does the clear-top tent that allows you to see the sky.
The little things count.
