Good morning Bill, Kim, Caitlin and everyone at Newport Tent,

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.

Dear Kim,

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.

Hi Bill,

I wanted to send a note to say THANK YOU for all of your help for the wedding on June 1st at Mount Hope Farm.  The work you guys do is amazing, and you helped so much.  Since I am not from the area, you guys went above and beyond with all my changes, even the last minute ones.  I especially want to recognize Jen De Sarro, because she was very patient with me and always responded to my changes.  I hope we can work together again.

Dear Kim & Bill,

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!

As we did have rain at the time of the wedding, I made the right decision.  I also made the right decision in choosing your company.  The ceremony was beautiful under the tent, with the front flap/window down we could see the ocean - my daughter's wish come true.

Hi Kim,

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.

Dear Jen,

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!!!

Dear Bill,

Michael & I wanted to share our sincere thanks for all the time and talent you and your terrific crew dedicated to making ours a gloriously tented celebration.  We really appreciated your multiple visits to my parent's home to walk the property, measure and ensure that we had everything ordered and assembled, successfully transforming the homestead into a safe, comfortable and elegant place to host our wedding.  Your calm assurances and expertise were what helped convince us that our idea wasn't so crazy, but actually doable.  All of our guests had an amazing time boogie-ing under the backyard bigtop.  It was very special for us to start our new life together at the scene of so many special and warm memories for our family.  Thank you for not just making it possible, but for making it perfect.
