Sperry Tents began with an invitation. Sailmaker and craftsman Steve Sperry was invited to a neighborhood party and used his fabric design skills to create a unique tent canopy. Steve’s original 1980 design, the first-ever Sperry Tent, marked an innovative shift in event aesthetics. Today, Sperry Tents are still designed and crafted out of durable sailcloth by the Sperry family and are available for rent throughout the South East. Our tents lend drama to outdoor wedding receptions thanks to their natural components, handcrafted details, and elegant silhouettes.

Where you call home: Charleston
Things you’d write home to your Momma about: The makers of Sperry Tents never compromise craftsmanship for speed or quantity. Each and every Sperry Tent is constructed and hand-sewn in a post-and-beam barn in coastal Mass. Oh, and we won Wedding Wire’s Bride’s Choice Award 2012 – yay us!
Location/coverage: Virginia, North & South Carolina
Favorite part of a wedding day? Dusk, when our tents start to glow against the darkening sky.
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? Remember that choosing a tent requires just as much consideration as selecting an indoor venue. For an outdoor wedding, the tent is your venue! Pick one with aesthetics in mind, particularly since both its interior and exterior will appear in your wedding photos.
