A Black Tie Wedding on a West Marin Dairy Farm

We were delighted to work with Green Girl Events on an intimate wedding in Tomales, just north of Point Reyes Station.  The site was bare when we arrived – just a hill on a cow pasture with a view of the bay.  Lucky cows.

Several hours later, the farmland was transformed with a carpeted sub-floor, tents and lighting.  The guests arrived dressed in formal attire and enjoyed a performance by professional opera singers, fine food by Inverness caterer, Indian Peach, and dancing into the wee hours.

Photos graciously shared by Paige Green Photography.

A Tent Creates an Outdoor Room for your Wedding Ceremony

Rebecca Feeney, of Custom Event Group, recently shared some lovely images of a wedding on which we collaborated.    The ceremony and cocktail reception were held under a 46×80′ tent.  Too often in California, wedding guests sit in the hot sun hoping the wedding vows will commence before the heat becomes unbearable.  A tent can be incorporated into a natural setting without obstructing views and provide a retreat for your guests from that afternoon summer sun.

This photo was featured in the 2010 Winter issue of Martha Stewart Weddings, Anniversary Edition.  The chuppah was adorned with olive branches and magnolia leaves.


For this wedding at di Rosa Preserva in Napa, the tent was used as shelter from the rain.  Designer, Kathy Hoffman created a beautiful contemporary floral design.
