Real Simple Weddings 2010

Can you say maximalist? How did we get into 'real simple' !?!

At Boutique Tents, we just love to sink our creative chops into a good old fashioned mandap to really satisfy our natural instincts toward EMBELLISHMENT. Mies van der Rohe may have said 'less is more' but, here we subscribe to the Tony Duquette school of thought, if we must choose. So, in the spirit of More More More, we embarked upon this over the top tent with a sense of vigor and gravitas. This was, by far, one of our favorite commissions of all time, cued up by the indomitable Calder Clark, who is not afraid of color, no ma'am. Layers and layers of fabric (coral, aqua, white), uber-wide drapes with custom pieced stripes. Look closely, that pattern on the interior roof... we painted that design! And that valance, three fluttering layers of color, texture and motion. This tent was larger than life and one we'll always love!
