New Tent in Newport
It is finally here! The new tent at Castle Hill Inn & Resort has arrived, and we couldn't have been more thrilled to spend the most perfect evening getting to see it (and taste some fresh summer delicacies!) in person. The custom designed tent from Sperry Fabric Architecture, the makers of Sperry Tents, is the absolute epitome of Newport chic. As I photographed the event, I couldn't help but love how much light the tent let in, from the skylights above to the wide open sides, a warm glow bounced around the beautiful setup. The beautiful new slate grey tables from Rentals Unlimited were dressed up for the event by Stoneblossom Floral and Event Design with eclectic elegant pieces like driftwood risers, vintage mirrors, mason and perfume jars donned with coral peonies, herbs, and grasses, and vases filled with rope. Pretty lounge vignettes set up with plush furniture from Rentals Unlimited were great for catching up with some of our favorite industry friends, and we also enjoyed the small plates served from 3 high top bars set up around the tent, not to mention the Raw Bar and Hors D'oeuvre station complete with a tree installation designed by Exquisite Events outside and the Individual Clam Bakes served inside (we also got a glimpse at the new lobster bake area, WOW! Stunning). The new floor is perfect for dancing (I tested it out, as it was my birthday eve of course), and if possible, when the sun set the tent was even more remarkable with uplighting setting it aglow. Thanks to all our friends at Castle Hill and Newport Restaurant Group for inviting us to be a part of the splendid summer celebration. We can't wait to see the submissions start to roll in across our desks with weddings and events under the new tent! Enjoy some of the images we captured! Oh, and New York readers, you might be ecstatic to learn that Sperry Tents has now expanded to the Finger Lakes region! Check out their new offerings HERE!
