1. How did your business come to be?

I left the catering and restaurant industry to help a real estate developer with a  little start up company.  My focus was on serving caterers and event professionals on a business to business basis.

2. What services do you offer?

We offer all possible event rental products both off the shelf and custom products.  I design a lot of my own dishes and tables. We do not do tenting.

3. Where are you located and how far are you willing to travel?

We are located in Boston with showrooms in Boston and on Cape Cod.  We primarily work in all of New England, but have traveled to Washington DC, Wyoming, Florida, New York, Georgia and the Bahamas.  We go where our clients want us to go.

4. How far in advance do you recommend clients to book?

We always want our clients to book as far in advance as possible, but we can and will book even less than 24 hrs. Again, we take care of our clients, no matter what.

5. What advice do you always give to brides?

Relax and let the professionals do their job.

Vendor Spotlight On: Newport Tent

This week’s Vendor Spotlight is on Newport Tent! Stay tuned for real wedding Wednesday featuring their beautiful tents!

1. How did your business come to be?

Newport Tent was founded by Mike Corcoran in 1971, the current owner, Bill Corcoran’s uncle. Mike purchased his first tent for an auction that he was running, and also purchased tents for the filming of the movie The Great Gatsby. As the number of tents continued to grow, so did the business. Bill had always worked at Newport Tent on weekends through college, law school, and even once he began his career as a lawyer. Bill purchased the company from his uncle in 1998, and has been providing exceptional service to our customers for almost 20 years.

2. What are the services you offer?

Newport Tent provides many services for special events. We carry Frame Tents, Century Tents, Hybrid Century Tents, and Tidewater Tents. We offer our custom-made flooring for inside of the tent with a built in leveling system. We can also provide tables, chairs, and basic tent lighting as well as heaters for events in cooler weather and generators to supply electricity when none is available.

3. Where are you located and how far will you travel to provide your service?

We are located in Portsmouth, RI and will travel throughout all of Rhode Island, most of Massachusetts, and even some neighboring Connecticut cities and towns.

4. How far in advance do you recommend clients to book?  

Clients often times book a wedding or large event one year in advance, but people can book as far out as 2 years or sometimes as close as a month ahead.

5. What is one piece of advice you always give to brides?

The best advice that we can give to brides is to just relax and allow themselves to enjoy this special time–it will be perfect!

Vendor Spotlight On: The Stone House

Vendor Spotlight is on The Stone House; newest addition to the Newport Experience collection of properties, the Stone House is a luxury resort on the quaint shore of Little Compton, RI.

1. How did your business come to be?

 The original four-story building was constructed in 1854 as a private residence and was once home to David Sisson and his son, Henry Sisson, a civil war hero. It was converted to an inn during the 1920s and an old tap room remains in the basement that was once a speakeasy during the Prohibition.

 The Stone House recently underwent comprehensive renovations costing an estimated $12 million incorporating many green technologies including a geothermal heating and cooling system. The Stone House was also named to the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.

The property features spacious and well-appointed guest rooms and suites, a restaurant, and a private beach.  There is also a renovated barn on the grounds that features guest rooms and a beautiful function space with an outdoor terrace and gorgeous water views.

 2. What are the services you offer?

Wedding venue, rehearsal dinners, social and private gatherings, and corporate events.

3. Where are you located?

We are located at the tip of Sakonnet Point in Little Compton, RI – 122 Sakonnet Point Rd., Little Compton, RI.

4. How far in advance do you recommend clients to book?

1-2 years in advance

5. What is one piece of advice you always give to brides?

The advice we always give our brides is to book your wedding venue first in the planning process, as most venues typically book 1-2 years out. Once you have your wedding venue secured, everything else will fall into place.

Photography Spotlight On: M. Studios

This week’s Photography Spotlight is on M. Studios! Stay tuned for Wednesday’s blog post featuring this dynamic duo’s fabulous work.

1. How did M. Studios come to be?

Marisa and I have been friends for almost 20 years.  One thing that we’ve always had in common is a love of photography.  We were both doing photography professionally but separately.  I was working for Snap! Photography as a lead photographer.  Marisa was shooting portraits and doing freelance work for companies like Alex and Ani.  We started hiring each other to assist on jobs we had when we finally had that “aha” moment!  We saw the opportunity of not only doing what we love but being able to do it with your best friend.  Could it get anymore perfect than that?!  So, in 2011 M.Studios was born and it has been the greatest thing for both of us. 

2. What types of photography services do you offer?

While we mostly focus on weddings we also do portraits, head shots, and event photography.  We also have a super swanky photo booth that is always the life of the party! 

3. Where are you located and how far are you willing to travel?

M.Studios has an office at Hope Artiste Village in Pawtucket.  We will travel anywhere and everywhere!  We have shot weddings in New York City, Washington DC, Boston, Maine, New Hampshire, The Adirondacks, The Berkshires as well as many other places in New England.  We even travelled to Philadelphia for an engagement session.  We love to travel so destination weddings are our favorite!

4. How far in advance should you book?

As soon as you have your venue booked the next step should be photos.  We book fast!

5. What is the best advice you can give to anyone being photographed?

Trust your photographer!  You hired them because you saw something in their work that spoke to you.  If you trust in their vision it allows your photographer to work their magic.  Also don’t be afraid to ham it up!  Laugh a little too much, flip your hair, be overly romantic, and just have fun with it!
