Wedding Bells in the Hamptons!

The Fall wedding season is in full swing!  I'd like to share a few photos of a wedding that we were involved with over the past weekend.  What you see below is the reception tent on a beautiful piece of property in East Hampton; a custom 40'x120' Clear, gable-ended Navi-Trac with our new Pickled Wide-Plank Floor covering on top of a leveled sub-floor. 

Have you seen many floors like this under a tent, if any at all?  We're thrilled about this new product which comes in several finishes. 

Event Planner, Elizabeth K. Allen was outstanding as usual in pulling this celebration together.  Her meticulous attention to detail and ability to manage the logistics (as well as personalities!) in such a large scale wedding was nothing short of incredible.  Along with Lewis Miller Designs and L&M Sound & Lighting, the entire team created the perfect environment for the newlywed's special day. 

As always, click on any photo to view the larger version.
