The winning photo in the 2017 InTents Buyer’s Guide cover contest features a festive tented wedding reception installed by Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals, Orlando, Fla.
From dozens of submitted photos, InTents narrowed the choices to three, and hundreds of online voters chose the winner in early January.
Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals installed the 30-by-80-foot clear tent by Economy Tent Intl. for a March 2016 wedding that featured a vibrant, Mexican-inspired fiesta theme with touches of the Day of the Dead. Embedded filament lines in the tent fabric prevented expansion under the Florida sun. Michele Butler Events served as wedding planner, and the photo was taken by That First Moment Photography.
Other contest finalists were Commonwealth Event Co., Richmond, Va., with a drone shot of a clear-top tent for a corporate event at Williamsburg Winery, Williamsburg, Va., and Choura Events, Torrance, Calif., with a photo of a 20-by-27-foot Tidewater Sailcloth Tent manufactured by Aztec Tents for a wedding at Palos Verdes Estates in September 2016 (photo by Brian Lovelace).
