a step up from the washroom tents. All
the tented structures were guttered together
so that even though there were
elevation changes between them, the
seamless connection meant that guests
did not feel as if they were leaving one
structure to enter another.
Rain on your wedding day
The day of the event included nonstop
rain, which altered some of the plans.
The original vision was to host an openair
cocktail hour in between the two
locations. Thankfully, there was a plan
B-to push the cocktail hour up to the
tented reception area, which they did. " It
literally rained the entire time, " Ussher
says. " You never hope for people to have
rain on their wedding day but it's nice
when, if they do, because of your setup,
they are still able to have a great day. "
And have a great day, they did. The
ceremony on the water took all of about 17
minutes, and then the guests moved up to
the reception area, where they celebrated
into the night.
Ussher says if he were to do anything
differently, it would be to ask for more
installation time. " We underestimated
how much work it was going to be and so
we ended up working very long hours on
the installation days, " he says. " And in that
type of a situation where the client owns
the property, we probably could have been
granted access earlier if we had asked.
" But the important part is that they
were over the moon about how everything
turned out-because of thorough planning
and tenting. "
