Maine Weddings Celebration Decor
One dear mother of the bride
sent me a kind note of thanks after the wedding celebration: "Dear
Bo- You wouldn't believe the letters we are getting! Wow! Thanks again
for making our dream literally come true! (Signed ____)".
Difficult details like setting pin spotlights over 40 tables in a tent needed magic. This installation job was unusual, record heavy rains soaked the ground and high winds challenged the tents. Thankfully, on the wedding day, the sun returned, the climate was serene and the wedding celebration delighted everyone!

Next are some computer renderings based on some Newer commercial tents used locally. Ask me to do customized visualizations! (Customized, computer accurate models are offered when you hire me and send a $100, non-refundable deposit. These computer models greatly help in arranging tables and decoration features. Visualizations are digital renderings which provide a sense of what it could look like in real life.) I love visualization work and use architectural rendering software (formZ).
This is a scale model of the 64X124 Sperry tent. Trees of this large size and arcing overhead require special skills to install.
Custom designed chandeliers can be invented . Visualize before finally choosing. Discover what plans will fit given circumstances best. Call or write.
I offer to model any tent design to scale, in this case with tree arches along walls.
I can help you accurately arrange seating, as in this continuous table, (given exact table and tent size)
Another innovative service which could be provided for you is to project digital images and video right on to the tent surfaces! In case you would like to add higher technology features, this could add new dimensions to your celebration. Subject matter could range from one's own memorabilia to computer generated patterns based on the music, or some of both. It could even include some live camera views of the party itself, for added effect. This is naturally a service needing much more discussion and clarification. Pricing would depend on the extent and the desired form of service. The projections will naturally have some angular distortion and provide more of a dreamy theme, rather than a documentary theme. I could digitally model what this would look like, just ask! Visit this page in the future to see more visualizations!
Here is a link to a public event where I decorated 2 dance halls for the town of Camden, year 2000.
Very different styles are available... See an Asian - American wedding celebration theme, (Click here).
Computer based planning is extremely helpful in organizing many aspects of special events. Computer aided designs as in examples above predict the appearance of decorations which can be built. Customized stone decorations can be made for celebrations and then installed permanently in gardens. Endless options are available with highly customized, concrete sculpture.
