Durango Ranch Wedding Tent

We’d been working with the couple for almost a year. They were extremely creative, with a unique vision for their wedding. They knew what they wanted: a stretch tent.

Crazy Tent People

My friends and family joke laugh that we’ve become those “crazy tent people”. We always joke that once you see a stretch tent you’ll begin visualizing future events and empty spaces with tents. Too hot? Tent it. Too cold? Tent it. Event had bad weather? Should’ve tented. Event had good weather? Still could’ve used a tent! Our stretch tent obsession was further enforced when we got to use our beautiful chino canopy at a wedding in Durango. The location was perfect. A private ranch with stunning views, red barn, wide open spaces, AND STAKING!

Typically we use more “conventional” rigs for clients less familiar with our product. This couple wanted something new, different, and exciting. We were asked to drop 3 sides to create a “cave-like” atmosphere.

We arrived on site to find a unique handmade dance floor. While we rigged, the wedding party began assembling a ceremony site with hay bales, a lounge area with modern white block ensembles. It was a balance of modern and traditional rustic. We also brought our farm tables and benches which were set up outside of the tent – allowing the stretch tent to become a unique dance area (even equipped with a disco ball).
