Cool Event Photos from the Past Couple of Years (Part One)

At Linens by the Sea and by working with our parent company, U.S. Tent Rental, we have had the pleasure of receiving amazing photographs from many of our photography studio and event planner friends. We’d love to share some with you to also enjoy with a little bit of background information on each event image. We’ll be sharing some more images again with you next month!

By the way, check out this neat magazine cover of our Shimmer Crease Purple Cabbage runner with our Bling Lilac runner on top. Thanks and congrats to A.J. Latteri at Loft 5 for this awesome photoshoot idea!

  3. Background information: This was a really fun project to keep everything secret until an E! network show aired the wedding of Canadian professional wrestler,Nattie Neidhart, who works for the WWE under the ring name of Natalya. The entire team of vendors was really terrific to work with.

Next up:


  1. The event name and category: yacht club wedding, wedding reception
  2. Date and location: Spring, 2013, Carlouel Yacht Club, Clearwater, FL

  4. Main products used:
    gold chiavari chairs with ivory pads, Ivory Pintuck linens, Black Lamour napkins

  2. Date and location: December 2013
  3. Background information: This holiday party with a 007/James Bond theme was a dream to install. We located the tent on the business’s large open paved space.

    50’x120’ Anchor Navitrack frame tent anchored into the pavement
  5. Other companies involved: Showorks, Boeth Productions (Anita Stephens Boeth)

    We think you'll love the following:


1. The event name and category: Gasparilla Inn wedding reception
Date and location: Spring, 2013, The Gasparilla Inn, Boca Grande, FL
Background information: The historic Gasparilla Inn, named after a local pirate from the 18th century, has hosted many weddings and presidents since 1913. Other notable guests have included Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, Thomas Edison, Katharine Hepburn, as well as members of the DuPont family. The day of this particular wedding was incredibly windy on this small, remote island just off Florida’s West Coast. Thank goodness Justin Souza, a CERP certified tent installer at US Tent Rental, was the lead on the job. All of his experience was required to create this exceptional tent and beautiful reception space in some of the most challenging weather conditions.
Main products used:
White Lamour linens
Apple Lamour napkins
white chiavari chairs and white pads
5. Other companies involved: NK Productions (Nicole Kaney, wedding planning) and the Gasparilla Inn

This one's a real showstopper:


  1. The event name and category: New College of Florida, new president’s welcome gala
  2. Date and location: February 2013, New College of Florida, Sarasota, FL
  3. Background information: This event was about making the new president of the New College of Florida, Donal O'Shea, feel warmly welcome, and it highlighted the school’s colors, navy and white. Working with both the events staff and a full volunteer committee to bring all of their ideas to life was very rewarding. We had on site technicians to ensure the climate control of the tent. It was unseasonably cold for Florida with 50 mile per hour winds and a temperature of 50 degrees. In fact, it was quite unbelievably that the weather could be so crazy outside, but inside the tent, everyone was oblivious to the weather and having a fantastic time.
  4. Main products used:
    Satin Royal linens, White Satin napkins, gold chiavari chairs

    80’x100’ Anchor Century high peak twin pole tent with cathedral window sidewalls

    crystal chandeliers

    tables, china, flatware, glassware
    Crystal beaded center pole hoop “chandeliers” with blue LED up-lighting

  5. Other companies involved: Affairs in the Air, Flowers by Fudgie
