Elegance
and whimsy
A 2018 wedding combined Indian and Western
traditions-and a couple's love of Boston's
major league sports teams.

magine a waterfront wedding ceremony and a reception
under a sailcloth tent on a historic Rhode Island
property. For a September 2018 wedding, Stasia Anthony
and Kelli DuBeau, cofounders of Exquisite Events Details
& Décor, Newport and Narragansett, R.I., began with that
tableau, added Indian and Western wedding traditions,
and further customized the day by playing up the couple's
love for Boston sports.
The wedding's design framed each step, leading more
than 200 guests from a baraat procession to an off-site
after-party.
"We went from really vibrant colors to more soft, muted
tones as we went from the Hindu ceremony, to cocktails,
then into the western ceremony, and finally into the tent,"
Anthony says. "It was whimsical, soft, with abundant
candlelight throughout. And all of the design elements
complemented the beauty of the surrounding area."

Mount Hope Farm is a 127-acre national historic site and
working farm. Its charm drew Anthony and DuBeau's
clients to select a Tidewater® Sail Cloth Tent with natural wood poles. Indeed, the couple especially desired the
creamy white softness of sailcloth, as opposed to a stark
white tent, Anthony says.
"We find that with the Tidewater Tent, simple, elegant
decor is what you need," Anthony says.
Newport Tent Co., Portsmouth, R.I. (now a division
of PEAK Event Services of Boston, Mass.), installed the
59-by-99-foot Tidewater Tent, along with a 60-by-104foot hardwood floor and an additional tent for catering.
The biggest tent-related challenge for planners was
logistics. Another wedding with a different-sized tent
was scheduled at the site for the night before. Because it
wouldn't have been possible to strike that tent, install the
sailcloth tent and finish the flooring and decor in time for
this celebration, planners convinced the clients of the first
wedding to agree to a tent share.
