How to Have an Elegant Big Tent Wedding


A natural romance wedding for $60k

With a large guest list of 270 + vendors and staff, our next couple had to rent the largest tent in the Windsor - Essex area to host their naturally elegant wedding celebration, and boy did it turn out beautiful! The simple, outdoorsy theme came together with romantic lighting, vintage furnishings, fresh florals, and greenery throughout. 

But enough about the decor because our bride looked totally gorgeous in her off-shoulder lace gown, and we can't fail to mention her bridesmaids in mismatched blush dresses from Show Me Your Mumu. So pretty! Vicki Bartel Photography captured all the must-see details below and in the full gallery for your enjoyment.

keeping it romantic + outdoorsy


From the Bride: Our wedding theme was simple, romantic and outdoorsy. We always wanted a wedding to feel laid back, fun and easy, and we did just that! We created the most beautiful outdoor venue imaginable starting with the largest tent we could rent in the Windsor - Essex area hosting 270 guests + vendors, valet attendants and staff.

Our favorite wedding detail... we had so many fun details! But I loved our furniture rental from Modish Lounge Rentals. We had rented their new collection ‘Century Chic’. It was, pretty, romantic and a wonderful area for guest to enjoy throughout the night!

Cocktails for their pups


Cocktails + Appetizer hour, each appetizer had a fun love name attached to it, inspired by Lauren Conrad. And we also had Elle & Em design signature drinks for our two fur babies Jax and Berkeley - displayed at both bars throughout the evening. After the wedding, we ventured off to Santorini, Greece, it was incredible. Still feels like a dream looking back on pictures and sharing our adventure and memories with family and friends.
