the design and construction of the tent and
floor to accommodate them.
In order to wrap the trees, Stamford
needed to site the tent exactly, projecting
up to the roof where the trees would
intersect with the fabric. Stamford sent
the specs to the manufacturer so it could
build the top with a slit to accommodate
the trees. " We placed the tenting around
the trees and fit a 'boot' around them to
cinch around the trees, " Frost says.
The installation also included four
doors-two on the front porch, one in
the back to access the restrooms and one
for the catering tent-a 20-by-60-foot
Navi-Trac®
frame tent.
Floored
Due to the trees built into the tent and floor,
Stamford had to raise the arches by hand,
as a crane and forklift were not possible.
Stamford custom-built the flooring
around two trees, in addition to building
flooring over the pool to accommodate
the cocktail hour. " We do a lot of custom
floors, " Frost says. " Thankfully, our
carpenters on staff are more than able to
do that. "
Stamford covered the pool with a
-the only USDAsubfloor
and SYNLawn®
certified bio-preferred artificial grass that
comes with combinations of synthetic
turf with organic infill systems.
Start to finish
With the many revisions, delays and
site inspections, the entire project took
two years to complete. Installation
took approximately three weeks, and
teardown took eight days. Depending on
the task, the size of the installation crew
ranged from eight to 20.

writer and editor and former InTents editor.
Changes to the scope of the project
continued as the event neared, with the
clients adding air conditioning and a front
porch a few weeks before the wedding.
" But the event was incredibly successful-
with each change along the way, " Frost
says. " And we were happy to do it. It really
was an event to be proud of. "
