WE LOVE: Outdoor Weddings and Celebrations! {Bring on the Summer Party Season!}

Who doesn’t love attending a party outside, in a tent, under the trees, next to the ocean or by the pool?  Okay, so there might also be scorching temperatures, thunder storms, flying sand, muddy walks, and biting mosquitos, but WHO CARES? Those natural occurrences are all part of the mystique and spontaneity of entertaining out-of-doors. This week marks the beginning of another Summer Party Season and we no longer need to dream of sunny days and balmy nights. They’re upon us and we’re ready! So bring on those steamy days and sultry nights! We thought we’d share just a few photos from some of our favorite outdoor weddings and celebrations from years past…

An elegant English Garden wedding for 200 at a private home located at a prestigious golfing community in Southern New Jersey. Carefully placed tents were nestled between pine trees, over flagstone terraces and koi ponds. As June on the East Coast does get sticky with humidity, we zipped up the clear tent sides and pumped in plenty of air-conditioning!  {Tent: EventQuip; Photo: Melissa Mermin }
