Tent Weddings in the Bay Area

Tent weddings are magnificent, and they are every Event Designers' dream. The ability to create the structure of a blank canvas from scratch makes it possible to design events in any color palette, style, and theme. It takes a lot of planning and logistics on the back end to make it happen though, and that is the very part that we get excited about.

We've done numerous tent weddings/events in the past, and have faced different challenges for each one. There are a lot of decisions to be made when deciding whether or not to tent an event. First of all, you have to find the right space to set up a tent. Just because you own the property that you live in doesn't necessary make it a suitable space for a tent, so please be sure to ask your Event Planner and/or a professional tenting company like Classic Party Rentals to do a thorough site inspection with you. They can help you assess whether or not the grounds are suitable for tenting and if so, the specific type of tent that would work best for your event.

If you've got your heart set on a tent wedding, here are a list of venues in the San Francisco Bay Area that will allow you to tent on site:

St. Regis Hotel {San Francisco, CA}
Four Seasons Hotel {Palo Alto, CA}
Villa Montalvo {Saratoga, CA}
Kohl Mansion {Burlingame, CA}
Hakone Gardens {Saratoga, CA}
Hotel Vitale {San Francisco, CA}
Beaulieu Garden {Rutherford, CA}

One of our favorite tenting events that we've done was for Wedding 360, at the St. Regis, designed by our very talented design partner Gloria Wong of Gloria Wong Design:
