San Diego Weddings: All About Outdoor Space

Are you having trouble deciding between an indoor or outdoor wedding? Outdoor weddings and receptions are incredibly popular in the warm months, but what about winter?

Typically, when people think of tents for weddings or receptions, they think of them for one reason: rain. The reliable backup for outdoor wedding day events in a case of inclement weather, tents are extremely underrated. With larger, more sophisticated tent structures boasting such comforts as built-in heat and air conditioning, tent receptions can take place any time of year. You have the security of the indoors but you are still getting the ambiance and beauty of being outside. You don’t have to lose that outdoor element.

Paradise Point has just unveiled its brand new Sunset Pavilion. This tented area features glass walls and doors showcasing sweeping views of Mission Bay, its own private terrace as well as A/C and Heat inside the tent, making it the perfect tent option without all the hassle and high pricing of renting your own tent.  

Tents are a Blank Canvas

While some may think a tent would be too plain or dull, consider this in a positive light. Tents are a blank canvas allowing the creative freedom to transform it to fit your vision. The possibilities and looks you can create are endless.

Hanging Objects – Paper lanterns for a cute & cozy look, floral chandeliers bring the garden indoors and crystal chandeliers create the ballroom look.

Divvy Up The Space – Create a special entrance or lounge areas with draping or even small cabana-style tents and swanky furniture.

Lighting – Lighting creates your ambiance and gives you the biggest bang for your decorating buck. Uplights are a lighting must for every event. They create tons of color and drama. Gobos are great space fillers and create some fantastic custom looks for your wedding. String lights are romantic, twinkle lights create that fairytale look and of course who doesn’t love chandeliers…rustic wood, crystal, bright colors. We love them all.

Draping – Ceiling and wall draping can completely change the look of the tent, including people’s perception of how big it is. You can turn a cavernous space into an intimate setting easily with some strategically placed drapes and lights. 

Tents are so much more than simply shelter. With the naturally soft light created by their white walls and the often-creative lighting schemes within, tent receptions are known for their natural intimacy, picture-friendly conditions and creative possibilities. Tent weddings have that magic feel to them that couples love and Paradise Point has your perfect blank canvas.
