Clytie’s Wedding

Success despite 20mph wind and pouring rain!

My husband and I want to thank you so much for all your help on my daughter Clytie’s wedding. Your quick responses on referrals were so helpful and the recommended vendors all worked out well and easily coordinated with one another. Bill was a pleasure to work with as well and everything went smoothly with the tent. We appreciated that ours was not an easy property to work with, especially the day the tent went up when the wind was blowing 20 miles per hour and it was raining! The wedding was a huge success and we felt fortunate to have had the tent and the heaters. The next day, the tent was taken down quickly and there was not a trace of damage to the lawn. We were amazed and of course, thrilled. Again, we thank you, Bill and everyone else involved in making the wedding as stress free as possible. Marguerite, Jamestown, RI

Karen’s Wedding

Tent on the beach was perfect.

Having the tent at the beach made the setting more gorgeous, even with a partially sunny day.  It took the worry out, but it even added more color contrast, more of a wedding feel, more formality, more intimacy – it totally made it way better.  Everything went perfect and the guests said it was the best wedding they’d ever been to, bar none, so that was great.  Your guys did a masterful job, especially Ron, so please thank him profusely for me! Karen, Nonquitt, MA

Newport Bucket Regatta

Newport Shipyard

The tent was beautiful and many said to me how lovely it was. Please thank Bill and all of your team for all the hard work that went into setting it up and down!

Alanna’s Wedding

It was all perfect.

The wedding went off without a hitch. It really went so smoothly and the tent was spectacular. It was the perfect size and the stage was great! I’m so glad you called about where to put it I think it was in the perfect location. It really looked so nice overlooking the tasting room/barn. I really cannot thank you enough with all of your help. The tables, the chairs, it was all perfect. Thank you again so very much Jen; you are absolutely wonderful!!! Alanna, Portsmouth, RI

Bristol Community College

The ramp you provided for our 2015 commencement worked extremely well and I want to express our sincere appreciation and a huge thank you on behalf of BCC and the Commencement Committee. The ramp provided an element of inclusion that our previous chair lift did not. The wheelchair participant was grateful and happy to process across the stage with the rest of her peers. Your staff, especially Ron, are dedicated, customer oriented and very helpful throughout the installation. From the prompt delivery of the chairs, to the stadium flooring and the ramp, everyone was professional, helpful and just a great bunch of guys to work with. Again, a huge “Thank you” for everything you do for BCC. Laura Carlson, Director of Event Scheduling

Norman Bird Sanctuary

Clambake on the Beach!

The Bake on the Beach last night could not have been any more perfect, assuring a 2nd Bake on the Beach!  There was a beautiful breeze, the moon was almost full, and the weather cooperated, even providing nature’s fireworks through the distant clouds. Everyone, young and old, had a memorable evening, and SO MANY people commented on the tent. It was very impressive driving down Third Beach Road, walking on to the beach and seeing that huge tent!  You, and the guys who work so incredibly hard installing and packing away the tents, tables and chairs, are absolutely fantastic.  We are so appreciative!  We never have to worry about the tents for our events – you make it seem so easy.  Many thanks to all of you from all of us at NBS. Clambake, Middletown, RI

The tent was placed exactly where we wanted, the chairs were arranged perfectly, and it all went off without a hitch. The crew leader, Dejuan was a pleasure to work with. Thanks again, and we will certainly use you again should the need arise, and also recommend you highly to our friends and family. Chris, Houston, TX

Jane’s Wedding

Wood floor and the farmhouse tables were a knockout!

The tents were gorgeous! The small sailcloth one looked great even though we though we didn’t need one if the weather was good; the big one with the wood floor and the farmhouse tables was a knockout! We appreciated Mike’s being with us to provide friendly help and peace of mind. All in all, everything went extremely smoothly and the rave reviews are still coming. Jane, Canton, CT
