It was an honor when the Smith family contacted us about Lindsay and John’s wedding at the Taylor Grady House in Athens GA. Though we’ve worked at this historical mansion near the University of Georgia many times, the larger guest count for this December wedding would require additional layout and design work. Along with Andrée at Trumps Catering, we designed a T-shaped set up to use most all of the small backyard space at the house for 200+ guests. We combined a 40×40 frame tent and a 40×60 high peak pole tent to provide 4,000 sq ft of covered and walled space to keep the cold out and the good times in!
Inside the 40×60 tent, the Smiths chose a beautiful lighting combination with our basic perimeter cafe lights and a massive crystal Empire chandelier suspended over the dance floor. It was an elegant centerpiece and a huge focal point for the entire event. Inside the 40×40, the lighting was kept simple. It was enough to light the various food stations and the massive 24′ bar provides by Trumps. Magdalena from European Floral Design brought in a gorgeous selection of florals to highlight each table and she placed large floor standing candelabras to mark the 20′ entrance. Our mahogany chiavari chairs, large 20×20 dance floor, bistro tables (36″), and a huge 16×20 stage rounded out the list of rentals for this beautiful Athens Wedding.
