Marquee weddings (fancy word for ‘tent’!) are tricky business – how do you shield your guests & party from rain or blistering sun while still making the scene ultimately gorgeous?
Well, one way to go about it is to find a magical tent such as this! Set at the rustic Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, California, this whimsical lavender wedding ups the standard on the traditional marquee wedding. Not only did they find a tent pretty enough for their wedding ceremony – but its design is a masterpiece in itself, adding beauty to their photos rather than a hindrance.
Sent to us by their fabulous DJ (who was a massive priority for the couple!) and photographed by Tracy Rinehart, we are giving five stars for this incredible tent wedding feat.
The Wedding Style
We didn’t get too distracted with finding a theme. Instead, we focused on finding a venue that was going to set the theme / ambiance for us, which is why we fell in love with Calamigos. Torin loves trees and nature and Sarah loves sunshine, and Calamigos provided both. Having the trees, windows and greenery around us set the theme organically. We love natural, simple aesthetic and don’t appreciate anything over the top, so it was easy to pare everything down and keep it simple.
